A WAITRESS listening to a woman describing a huge list of allergies was reported to be muttering “Jesus” under her breath.
Donna Sheridan listened to customer Emma Bradford rattle off a list of more than 17 different food allergies, all which could surely not be real.
Sheridan said: “I was totally understanding of the first one – a nut allergy, sure. They’re pretty serious. Same with shellfish, although we don’t actually serve that.
“But then the list just kept going and going. Gluten intolerance, wheat intolerance – but aren’t they the same thing? And can you really be allergic to soup?
“Then she started going on about how she was allergic to latex. Luckily we don’t cover our cutlery in condoms to protect it before serving, so that’s not going to be an issue.
“It was like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat when he sings about all the colours in his coat. We get it – it’s a colourful coat. Stop going on about it.”
Bradford said: “I’ve diagnosed myself with many genuine allergies with the help of the internet. I hope she wasn’t wearing perfume. I’m allergic to that.”
