Chris Owen makes about £90 per month thanks to his tactical moaning
Chris Owen hates mayonnaise. And he says he makes about £90 a month by complaining about its unwanted use in food he orders at restaurants.
The 39-year-old PR director, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, said he always tells staff when there’s an issue with his food, and usually comes away with a free dish or a discount.
“The worst culprit is the burger – they always put mayonnaise on burgers,” he said.
“Mayonnaise is a tyrant of a condiment, and very arrogant.
“It thinks it makes everything better but it does not.”
Chris, dubbed “Britain’s biggest moaner” by The Sun , said he prefers to be known as the best at not putting up with poor service and mistakes.
And he has advised other diners to speak up when there are problems with orders.
He told the BBC that he earns around £1,000 a year by sending mayonnaise-ridden food back after specifically requesting his food comes with “no may”.
Chris added he makes money complaining about others elements of service too. In total, he estimates he’s made about £3,000 since he started complaining.
The PR director explained his hatred of mayonnaise runs deep, but also detests another popular condiment. He said salad cream is simply “mayo by proxy”.
Chris said he once got a free pizza after mentioning the overuse of chilli flakes, and won £400 in compensation due to a poorly-fitted oven.
The High Wycombe resident urged fellow customers to stop putting up with it and that it’s always okay to complain if you do so politely.
