2. ​ndividualistic says a customer service rep just needs to hear these magic words.

Ask to have the late fee waived. I literally cannot do anything with it until you specifically ask.

"So you have a late fee of $30 on this."

"Gee that's a lot. Why is it so much?"

"That's the late fee we have. I do apologize for that inconvenience."

"Well I guess I'll have to pay it then..."

"Ok, so your bill is $150."

"Do you realize how much that is?"

"Yes, and I do apologize for the inconvenience."

"Well, can you do something about it?"

Yes. Now I can because you asked. Please stop making me feel guilty that you paid your bill late.

Edit: To answer some questions, yes this is just one example of the overall theme in most restaurants: ZERO WASTE! Any veg trimmings, chicken trimmings, beef bones get boiled to stock. Left over entrées are usually tomorrow's open-faced lunch sammy special. Plastic containers are cut in half so everything is able to be scraped out. Second only to quality and consistency of food, zero waste is the credo to live by.

Grocery store bakeries do not bake the cakes they decorate. That stuff comes in frozen. Stop asking me to bake you a carrot cake.

We don't really make things anymore.
