Traveling is hard as you have to explain so much. I have traveled a lot this summer and have finally found what works for me... I ask the hostess/host who seats me to send the manager to see me as I have food allergies. If the hostess/host says the wait person can help me, I tell them I want to see the manager as I have a lot of questions. That is when I usually stare them down until they say okay. When the manager shows up I write their name down in a little notepad I carry. I like them to see me do this and if they ask I always say that I love giving compliments, and I do. Each time I have done this I have had no problems. I also write down the name of the wait person when they give it to me. I believe taking names gives a level of accountability to the situation. It is my health at stake.
At fast food places or deli style I again ask for the manager before placing my order. It takes more time, but it helps. Unless it is a chain I have researched thoroughly and I know exactly what to say to prompt them to prepare my food how I need it.
My sweet charming Southern personality helps me out a lot in getting a manager, or maybe it is my large chest... hmmmm
