During the lunch break, Stan and I decided to go to a local place called Pappa’s. The link is to my raving review of the place on the Taco Blog.
I take it back.
I mean it.
Okay, so their food is still good, but they lost my business today. Here’s the story . . . (Of a lovely lady) . . .
In the post linked above, I talked about how lunch at Pappa’s is different from dinner. During lunch, you used to go to the counter, place and pay for your order, then find a seat to wait until they brought it out to you. During dinner, you sat down, ordered from a menu, and paid at the end. It worked great.
Now, both lunch and dinner are sit, order, then pay.
We walked in, were told to sit and the waitress would bring us a menu. So, we sat. While we sat the waitress went to another table to give them their menus, and she took both their drink order and lunch order. She then went to another table to give them menus, and take both their drink and lunch order. Then she went behind the counter and put away the menus and started doing something with the cash register. Then, she started working on the drink orders for the two tables whose order she had taken. During all of this time, we were ignored by the waitress, who didn’t even bother to give us menus.
We walked out.
When I called back to complain to the owner, she told me that she was very busy, and I told her that she had lost our business.
I probably shouldn’t have been so upset. They were really busy. However, Stan and I have a very strict lunch schedule. We just didn’t have time to be ignored. Plus, at one point, the waitress looked over at us, so I know that she knew we were there waiting.
Well, if you glance at yesterday’s blog post, you’ll see that Adagio responded with a comment. And if you glance at my Twitter page, you’ll see that Teavana sent me a tweet after I exclaimed my happiness at finding them.
Now, guess which two of the three businesses mentioned in this post have my complete devotion.
