Re: “North end diner

Eggstrordinary story! I'm no eggspert in the business, but I would eggspect all restaurants to eggspend a certain effort to provide eggceptional service.

Perhaps the cook was eggsperiencing an eggsistential crisis. To poach or not to poach? That is the question to be eggzamined.

Re: “EI: Employment Idiocy

"Youse guys is steelin' ar' jobs!" , said the small-town local to the highly trained and educated professional sent to that small town to design a facility that the self-same local would be very lucky to be hired to sweep. True story!

Re: “You should have been punched

If there is ever a situation like that again I would recommend finding a way to get a message to the performer. Ask them to make an announcement demanding that the perpetrator leave the concert. I think it might cause the "jackass' to think twice before engaging in such idiotic behaviour again.

Re: “Tattoos, hair colour and midriffs do not equal bad service

On second thought, it's kinda funny that the OB saw the comment in the first place. I'd have thunk the suggestion box would be for the owner's eyes only - unless she wanted to point out something needing to change. Not sure why the OB would be seeing an unflattering comment if nothing was expected of her. This all sounds a bit odd.

Re: “Tattoos, hair colour and midriffs do not equal bad service

I don't care about tats or hair colour but I hafta admit that lots of exposed flesh and food service aren't a good combination. It's inching a little too close to a naked stranger handing me a plate of grub. Not good!! :-)

Seriously though, the main thing is that your employer is trying to make a living and is providing you employment. Small businesses run on tight margins. Every customer counts. You do owe it to the owner to put some effort into not chasing customers away - even ones that are more conservative than you. And, I don't think wearing a normal T-shirt to work is too much of a burden to bear.

Re: “Snowy cars

Saw the cops pull over a car one day downtown during a heavy snowfall. Foot of snow on the roof, hood and trunk. Rear and side windows completely covered in snow. Windshield also covered in snow - except for a small "porthole" that the driver had scraped out - and seemed to think was all she required for safe driving.

Driver rolls down side window ....just an inch or two...you know, 'cause of the snow falling into the car.... and I imagine her saying something like,"Is there a problem officer?"
