Describe a bad service you received in a restaurant/shop.


Bad service in restaurants can significantly impact the dining experience, leaving customers frustrated and dissatisfied. Whether it's slow service, rude staff, or incorrect orders, poor service can overshadow even the best food.


- When and where it happened.

Here I am going to talk about a bad experience I had when we went to a restaurant for the celebration of my birthday. A new restaurant has recently opened and it's a big name in town. So we all decided to celebrate our good time here.

- What happened?

We booked the venue for twenty people as everything was pre decided we did not worry and reached on time for a dinner party. When we reached there was no preparation done by the restaurant and they completely forgot the advance booking and we had to wait for two hours which left us exhausted and spoiled our day.

- How it was solved.

As it was a popular restaurant chain , I decided to complain to the higher authorities. I drafted a mail mentioning everything we faced regarding our booking and attached all related documents and payment details. I got a call from the senior manager and he assured us of good service in a few minutes and they called us and gave us our table and started serving our order. The food they served was also not us to the mark but we had to continue as we made full payment in advance. 

- And explain how you felt about the experience.

It was really a very bad experience I had received in my entire life and my birthday was spoiled just because of this poor management. I wrote a negative feedback on Google and they apologize for the inconvenience we faced and gave us discount to make us happy but after poor service and bad food I decided to never step in this place so this was a bad experience I had in a restaurant.

Describe a bad service you received in a restaurant/shop.


Encountering poor service in a retail setting can be disheartening, especially when customers are eager to find the products they need and enjoy a pleasant shopping experience. A negative encounter with unhelpful staff or disorganized operations can leave shoppers frustrated and dissatisfied.

When and where it happened.

I'd like to recount an unfortunate experience I had while shopping at a well-known boutique clothing store in the heart of the city. It was a Saturday afternoon, and I was hoping to find a special outfit for an upcoming event.

What happened?

As I entered the store, I noticed that it was quite crowded, which was understandable for a weekend. However, the situation escalated when I realized that the store was severely understaffed. There was a notable absence of employees on the sales floor, and those who were present seemed overwhelmed and disinterested in assisting customers. I struggled to find the items I was looking for, and there was no one available to answer my questions or offer guidance.

How was it resolved?

Frustrated by the lack of assistance, I decided to escalate the issue to the store manager. I explained the situation and emphasized the importance of a customer-friendly shopping experience. The manager promptly apologized for the inconvenience and quickly called in additional staff to assist customers. While this did alleviate some of the issues, it couldn't fully salvage the initial poor impression created by the lack of service.

And explain how you felt about the experience?

This shopping experience left me deeply disappointed. As a customer, I value a welcoming and efficient shopping environment where my needs are addressed promptly. The initial lack of attention and assistance tarnished my perception of this otherwise reputable store. While the manager's response was appreciated, it served as a stark reminder of the vital role that attentive and well-trained staff play in ensuring a positive shopping experience.
