Body of content:
I prank called an extremely expensive French restaurant as Buk Lau to see if they would be willing to give a discount on their fancy food. It turns out they had NO mercy when Buk Lau told them that his wife was dying and it was her last wish to eat in their restaurant! Can you believe they were so cold or is this how any expensive restaurant would respond? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Pranker: Yeah, I know, but- but remember my wife is dying remember?
Guy1: Yeah, I understand but, that's not a reason to uh- to apply uh a discount.
Pranker: SHE'S DYING MAN, like, don't you have a HEART, like, you don't feel bad for me?
Guy1: Yes, I do have a heart, it's not because someone is dying that we need to offer him, uh- uh- uh- a lot of things.
Pranker: Ok, do you mind- wh- can I come there and bring my own just cup of tea just to sit down then?
Guy1: [giggles] To bring YOUR cup of tea? No, it's not possible sir.
Pranker: But, HER LAST- HER LAST WISH IS TO EAT AT YOUR RESTAURANT, you know? So by tomorrow she might die, then after that-
Pranker: it's like, oh too late!

Pranker: I get what you're saying but if your friend or your mother or something, or your sister, you brother was dying, and they wanted to eat somewhere, you do whatever you can, right?
Pranker: Even though I have no money, I'm trying my best.
