"I ordered the broiled crab cakes, and they were really good," he says while emoting a mixture of pleasure and confusion. "And I called and asked if I could speak to the supervisor, and the girl that answered the phone wanted to know what it was in reference to."
"I told her it was regarding the food I ordered," the Real Actors Read Yelp Reviews talent continues. "And she said, 'What was wrong with it?' And I said, 'Nothing, I just wanted to let him or her know that it was good, and then she was like, 'OK hold on...'"
