When restros, bars or cafes goof up, they often apologise with words and a complimetary something to make the patrons happy. Worldwide practise this. But rare is the case when you get abused (well sort of) by way of being told SO, WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Skeety was up in fumes when the Bannofee pie @ The Big Chill, Khan Market had a 2-centimetres long hair hanging from it!
Skeety showed it to the staff and it was replaced. As Skeety didn't want to upset herself on a holiday, and also thought it to be a one-off incident, she ate the replacment.
And lo! When the plate was about to be sent back Skeety realised the presence of ANOTHER hair in her plate, this time. TWICE in the same hour on the same bloody table.
The manager was called for.
He said SORRY, which didn't sound one bit genuine (from the heart types). Rather it didn't sound like a sorry at all. He refused to share the owner's number as well. But he did insist on ANOTHER replacement. GUTS I tell you!When Skeety refused the offer, the Manager said, SO WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Skeety does NOT and WILL NOT eat from a dirty kitchen EVER AGAIN. Also, by means of this post, SMS-es and other means Skeety is ensuring that her friends stay off the DIRTY PLACE as well...
When your hard-earned money leaves a bad taste in the mouth all you can shout out is:
ROT IN HELL!
P.S.: A few friends asked that WHY did Skeety pay the bill. Answer: In the hope that they might give their chefs and other staff money for shaves and haircuts...Never going there again!
