I had similar things with catering. People dont' understand that a caterer is not a restaurant.
had one lady from a corporate client who wanted a dessert buffet and also a lunch-for-one for their special guest. She asked for tea as the drink. I asked if there was a special kind he liked. She asked if I could bring 4 or 5 kinds so he could pick. I said, "As long as you're ok with Snapple. I'm sure you understand how I can't go buy 4 or 5 six-packs of tea ... 24 bottles ... so he can pick: ONE."
She said she thought I might have those on hand. I said .....
"I'm a caterer, not a restaurant. A restaurant buys food on spec and hopes someone will come in and order it. A caterer takes the order and THEN goes to buy the food. I dont' keep anything "on hand"."
They are so used to the drive-up windown mentality.
