Best story from behind the wood | One night, I took a huge take out order right before we’re about to close. This guy is laughing, joking around on the phone; I was convinced it was a prank caller. When I asked him for a name for the order, he goes “Danny! Yeah, Danny. You spell it like Danny DeVito!” At this point I’m convinced no one will show for the order, but I took it down and sent it to kitchen anyway. Well, my jaw fell straight through the floor as Frank himself walks in ten minutes later. Lesson learned– always take that last phone order. Ya never know.
