If you’re a server, you’ve likely had that terrifying experience where you’ve forgotten to ring in a table’s food and needed to stall the customers and beg the kitchen to fire up their food as soon as possible.

After all, being honest and telling your table you forgot to ring their food in is a quick way to ruin your chances of getting a decent tip, and there’s the risk they may ask to speak to your manager. So, you have to do whatever you can to make it seem as if it wasn’t your fault.

Dean Redmond (@deanredmonds), a TikTok creator who’s gone viral for sharing some crazy restaurant stories, had some of his viewers shocked after revealing one of the craziest lies he’s told while working as a server.

“I just got away with the craziest lie I’ve ever told,” says a frantic Dean at the beginning of his video.

“I’m gonna be so canceled.”

Dean had a large party of 22 people seated in his section for a bachelorette party at the restaurant where he works. He took their order and headed to the kitchen to ring their food in. However, on his way, his acid reflux got the best of him, and he had to go to the bathroom to get sick.

Once that unexpected challenge was over, Dean walked out of the bathroom and was greeted by his angry manager, who pointed out another large table of eight people in his section who needed to have their order taken.

So, forgetting to ring in the bachelorette party’s orders, he took care of the other table. After 15 minutes had passed, he began panicking, remembering that he had forgotten to give the bachelorette party’s orders to the kitchen.

“It’s 15 minutes later, which in restaurant time is, like, over an hour,” says Dean.
