Twitter is cracking up over this dog’s burger order

Since “the customer is always right” is the service-world motto, restaurant workers are accustomed to endless customizations and specifications. But a long list of requirements that culminates in a very plain burger might be a new standard of picky.

The Cut writer Anna Silman shared a photo on Twitter yesterday of an absurdly lengthy receipt for a single order. Silman explained, “my friend is the chef at an extremely fancy NYC restaurant and this is an order he received today.”

The receipt boasted a full 24 lines required to ensure the burger was plain AF. “This is for a dog,” the receipt said early on, reiterating at the end that the customer wanted “just the plain pattie [sic]—this is for a dog.”

The specifications in between for no salt, no toppings, no bacon, no side salad (what an uncultured pooch) garnered a variety of amused responses from other Twitter users who wanted to know more about the pampered pup’s demands.

But some folks weren’t remotely surprised by the idea of someone bringing their furry friend along for lunch and requesting a special order just for them.

Others even shared their own stories of picking up a doggy bag now and then.

And there’s always that one guy who just says what we’re all thinking.

It may have taken a lot of typing and double checking and absolutely confirming that this was a  special meal for a dog, but we hope the little fella enjoyed his (or her) meal after all that.

And hopefully, the owner left a great tip at the end—and an even better Yelp review.
