Recently, James Corden was banned from a well-known restaurant in NYC. The reason? Well, before I tell you why, let me just say that he was labeled the “most abusive customer ever.” This story provides a great opportunity to explore the importance of customer service and how even the most famous celebrities are not exempt from poor treatment.

No matter who you are, you deserve to be treated with respect. That’s why good customer service is so important. It’s the difference between a positive and negative experience, and it can make all the difference in the world.

Unfortunately, not all businesses place an emphasis on customer service. In some cases, it’s because they’re too busy or understaffed. Other times, it’s because the employees simply don’t care. Whatever the reason, it’s not an excuse. If a business can’t provide good customer service, then it needs to find a way to fix the problem.

In the case of James Corden, it’s hard to say exactly what went wrong…actually, it’s not, because the owner told us a couple instances regarding Corden’s behavior.

According to the Daily Wire, [Kevin] McNally then provided two examples of what he claimed occurred at his restaurant by the late host.

The first post mentioned that in June, Corden was at Balthazar and “after eating his main course, Corden showed the hair to Balthazar manager G. who was very apologetic. Corden was extremely nasty to G, and said: ‘Get us another round of drinks this second. And also take care of all of our drinks so far. This way I write any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that.’”

The second report stated that earlier this month, the talk show host was at the same restaurant with Corden’s wife who “ordered an egg yolk omelette with gruyere cheese and salad. A few minutes after they received the food, James called their server, M. K. and told her there was a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk.”

“M. K. informed the floor manager, G,” McNally wrote. “The kitchen remade the dish but unfortunately sent it with home fries instead of salad. That’s when James Corden began yelling like crazy to the server: ‘You can’t do your job! You can’t do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelette myself!’”

“M.K. was very apologetic and brought G. over to the table,” he added. “He returned the dish, and after that, everything was fine. He gave them promo Champagne glasses to smooth things out. G. said that Corden was pleasant to him but nasty to the server.’ M.K. was very shaken, but professional that she is, continued to finish her shift.”

Whether you’re a celebrity or just a regular person, you deserve to be treated with respect and you are obligated to treat people with respect.

Customer service is important for everyone—celebrities included. No one deserves to be mistreated, regardless of the other person’s status or fame. If you find yourself in a situation where you’re being treated poorly, don’t hesitate to speak up and demand better treatment. You deserve nothing less.

  • whenever I
    I’ve had a problem with restaurants food, I spoke with server and he/she apologized and did all that they could do to resolve the issue. no yelling, no finger pointing, just two adults resolving the issue.
    glad the loud mouth got tossed, now he should be banned.

  • I ran a company back in the last century. Whenever 2 people would get into an argument I would take them into my office and set them down and ask what is your problem??? The discussion would start and at some of the time one would get angry and the shouting would began. Immediately I stopped and asked both to leave with these instructions, anger removes ones ability to logic and reason therefore when you can conduct yourself as a logically thinking human we will then begin the discussion again. In the second meeting the argument was settled. In todays world respect is a forgotten word. Anger, Hate and Love has the ability to take away reasoning and logic from us humans!!!!! Today we see that everyday!!!!!

  • I found a LONG hair fused to the home fries my wife was eating. I called the waitress over and held it up to show the hair stuck to three home fries. She took it and I never heard another word from the manager or the waitress. So, we paid, left a minimal tip and I went online to complain. No point in being a complete jerk.

    • I would not have left any tip. Remember, TIPS is an acronym for “to ensure prompt service.” If service is not sufficient nor prompt, then a tip is not a thing to give, as it encourages bad conduct in a service-oriented business.

  • The people that are like this need to be kicked out! They think they are owed something they certainly don’t deserve! If it were me I would have spit in his meal! Maybe they did! I am sure they get a lot of that for being such rotten people!

  • I’m sorry but NOBODY has the rite to act an ass to staff regardless of where they’re at!!! You ever heard the term “ You get what you give!!!”
    Act an ass, be treated as one!!!

  • No, no, you don’t understand. Left-wing nuts like James Cordon are ENTITLED to be treated like royalty. Didn’t the pedophiliac Hillary say that all patriotic Americans are “deplorables”, or in Braindead Biden’s words “Nazis”. ALL restaurants should treat this left-wing abusive scum like the trash that he is.

  • People like that usually get their food corrupted back in the kitchen, XE anal kiss, spit ,bugar, snot and other nasties!!!

  • Oh, for Pete sake – -probably the “hair” was one of Cordon’s own; he sounds like the kind of jerk who would pull that kind of nasty stunt. As for the “bit of egg yolk”, in the white- – -PICK IT OUT and eat the salad.; if you can’t say anything nice, just SHUT UP!! The is NO earthly reason to treat anyone this poorly, especially wait staff – – they are NOT the ones doing the cooking. If you “actually” encounter a less than satisfactory restaurant, with “poor” customer service, just don’t go back there. In this case, the restaurant was NOT one of those “less than satisfactory” establishments, but the egg- head customer was just a low life.

  • Celebrities often treat “service” people as something akin to “furnishings”, until 1 displeases , whereupon that status reverts to something more akin to the medieval serf, or slave, even if that’s not how the celebrity was raised. I suspect it has to do with our societal tendency to put them on pedestals, as if somehow “special” or “better” than the rest of us. Thus, we, as a societal whole, also bear some responsibility for that sort of behavior. However, that merely explains, does NOT excuse it! Each of us is accountable to our Creator, as well as our fellow humans, for our behaviors.

    • yes, one hanging from a tree, one with multiple gun shot wounds, one (or many) that is insane yet propped up by other liberals… passed off as intelligent (not)
