New Posts. Light-hearted and heart-felt thoughts about this restaurant business!

Eat A Bag Of Dicks.....

Ok, so here is how this went down.  This"'EABOD" was going to be in response to an on-line review I didn't necessarily agree with, one that was just full of nonsense. My initial response was going to be to answer to this person with a very simple "Eat A Bag Of Dicks". When I ran this by Laurie, my wife, my life partner as well as my business partner, she thought maybe that wasn't the best way to get started. Laurie is the yin to my yang, and we have a very different approach on how to deal with people, particularly pretentious people, "experts", haters or just miserable people. She might agree that said reviewer should be told to "eat a bag of dicks", but she would do it in a way that they not only will come around to agree with her way of thinking, but also have them not knowing they were just told to "eat a bag of dicks". We talked, we negotiated and we settled.
I agreed to not directly respond to anyone, name names, give out phone numbers or addresses, post photos....  She agreed that I can tell people to Eat A Bag Of Dicks when it is deserved.
Hell, the public has endless outlets to post their disappointment in businesses, to lie, to slander, to share their expertise in food and running restaurants in know what I am saying.
This is my forum to vent on bad customers, on bad behavior in restaurants or anything else that I need to vent about.....

Now, I just want to add....this is not to lessen legitimate critiques, complaints or shortcomings that we may have. We take them all very seriously, we learn and we correct. We always welcome feedback positive and negative, not only do we welcome it we encourage it, it is our only way of knowing things good or bad. That being said......

Jackson Pollock

So my first post this new forum here! Get this.....

 A very busy night, 2 hour waiting list kind of night.....Everyone worked their asses off all night...everyone did a great job. Closing time comes around, customers all gone, a time for everyone to breathe, have some family meal and get to the chores of cleaning up after service to get ready for the next day.  Server comes out from the mens room white...."Brad, you need to see the mens room". "What? Why?" "Just go look". That's when I ask my right-hand man in the kitchen if he can go take a look at the men's room and come back with a report. He comes back, kind of whiteish/green....."Its bad" he says.
Seems that some guy thought he was Jackson Pollock and decided our mens room was in need of some jazzing up. Shit everywhere. Are you kidding me?.....So now at 1am someone needs go in there, clean up this entire mess and sanitize the bathroom. What kind of animal does this? and thinks that this
is ok? Look, I understand accidents...even explosive accidents...but clean up your own shit asshole.
This is not acceptable behavior ANYWHERE...unless you are into weird shit, but that's a whole nuther blog.....  No-one should have to end their night of work dealing with this.....and to you sir....Eat A Bag Of Dicks!!
