B is for Bad Service
In the little town where I live, there are a million chain restaurants and a few hometown spots. After volleyball practice or after a game or just hanging out with friends, we go to these chain restaurants and we go every 2-3 weeks. We know the wait staff at some of these places and they know us. When my family frequents an eatery that we have been to several times, I expect the service and food to be on spot. WELL, we went to a place recently for hamburgers and not it wasn't McDonalds or Burger King, but it's well known for their steak burgers and shakes. The service was BAD BAD BAD.
My daughter orders a cheesy cheddar burger and it came out looking like a dried up McDonald's cheeseburger, we had to ask 3-4 times for a refill of her coke, she had to ask for ranch dressing 2-3 times, the waiter told me mother in law that they couldn't find any lettuce for her grilled chicken salad then when they found it, it didn't have any grilled chicken on it! BAD!!!
I'm not a complainer because I know people can have "off" days, I do sometimes, but I complained and low and behold, the manager contacted me by phone and sent us a $40 gift card for our trouble! We will go back to this place with or without the gift card, but I won't soon forget the BAD service we received. I will give them another chance.
