I find it slightly annoying when someone pulls up a seat at my bar…orders a water on the rocks…and asks for a food menu. That’s why we employ waiters and busboys. This is the equivalent of sitting at a table in a restaurant and only ordering a beer. Unfortunately, these misplaced customers are part of my job and I am forced to tolerate this stupidity from time to time. So tonight…a guy in his mid thirties rocked up and ordered a water along with a hamburger and fries. Really fuckwit? You had to walk through the dining room to get to the bar. Didn’t it occur to you that your business would be more well received there? Jackass. Anyway, when I served up his burger, he immediately began crying and bitching about the amount of fries on his plate. His rants quickly escalated into a full on childish temper tantrum. I tried not to laugh as his face turned red with anger and he stood up and began gesturing frantically with his hands as he paced back and forth like a caged animal. I have worked in the service industry for over twenty-five years and have never seen such a ridiculous reaction to the lack of a few french fries. I got a some more fries from the chef and presented them to the drama queen. He was so upset with me…as if it was my fault he was a raving lunatic…he grabbed his burger and extra fries and stormed off to the dining room…leaving a verbal trail of profanity. Didn’t anybody ever tell this guy not to sweat the little things? With all the endless suffering going on this world…poverty, corrupt governments, pollution, oil spills, radical depletion of the natural environment, tsunamis, earthquakes, wars, starvation, Frankenstorms, brainwashing through religions, genocide, idiotic politicians, child molesters, gangs, an over abundance of ignorance in general, etc…I would say we have some bigger fish to fry. There is a starving kid in Africa that would literally donate his left ball to science for just a couple of your cherished french fries. Fucking dickhead. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-diB65scQU Definitely the coolest song from the movie…Cocktail. Be happy.
