    Doris stormed into the kitchen and shouted a steak order across to Horton, the broiler cook. She needed the steak fast because of a late arrival to a party of eight in her section. Horton refused to put on the steak without the order being entered into the POS system. Doris picked up the orders for two other tables and told Horton to put the steak on now and she’d put the order on as soon as she could.  10 minutes later, Doris returned and Horton still hadn’t put the steak on.  Which of the following statements best characterizes the interaction between the server and the broiler cook?

      The broiler cook was wrong. Horton should have started the steak order because Doris was closer to what was happening with guests in the dining room. The broiler cook’s job is to serve those who serve the guests.

    • B. 

      The broiler cook was right. Overriding fundamental features of the control system should be approved by a manager and not dictated by the frustrations of a busy server.

    • C. 

      The broiler cook was right. Doris was only concerned with looking bad and losing a high tip from her party of eight.

      Horton was wrong. He should have started the steak order because guest service concerns should always override cumbersome control procedures.
