I was taking my niece (she of Marriages and Mercedes) out for lunch with the last dregs of my feeble (but infinitely helpful) salary. Seeing as we all know that the best place to get lots of food for little money is Greenview,that's where we headed. I'm generally snobby about my eating,but as she was picking,I decided to let it pass. Plus I don't like to venture out of my comfort zone. Why now? There's a reason it was established as such in the first place. Change and adapting to change? Overrated. In this sense,anyway,lol.
I've been channeling mild anorexia lately. Seriously,though. I talked to my doctor friend and that's what he says it is;simply defined as loss of appetite. I've lost 4kgs in under a month in VERY INCONVENIENT PLACES. *sigh* Anyway,point is,all I wanted was their amazing mango juice. We ordered and waited.
Two sips later,I thought,hm. This mango juice tastes funny. Gave the niece to try,because usually my tongue has low standards (ha!) so if my tongue was noticing,there was a major problem. She noticed it too. We promptly called the waitress,who switched it for me. Bad move #1. I should've just ordered something else,seeing as all the mango juice was probably corrupted.
Second one was bad too. Surprise! Sent it back and ordered an Alvaro. It was taking ages to come. Niece was halfway through her meal. I called the waitress who I had ordered my drink from. She said she's bringing it. 10 minutes later...nothing. I called her again. She said she'd been ordered not to serve me. By now,a passive aggressive tSN was getting peeved. We called another waitress. She said she'd bring...she didn't. When called back,she said she'd been ordered too. I asked to speak to the supervisor. Who came over with a sulky look on her face. I said,why aren't I being served? She said because the second juice was fine,it had just been made. (please note that we made our waitress taste the second one,and she said it was off) I said that's not the point. I'm the customer,and I don't like it,and we both tasted it along with your waitress and agreed it was off,and I want an Alvaro. She said I can't bring you an Alvaro. I looked at her untrained idiotic face and thought,tSN,it's been a while since you were pissed. I mean,you're anorexic and thus probably secretly hungry,it's early in the morning,AND she's an LSB with an attitude. So I got pissed. I said,the customer is always right. When you bring me bad food,am I supposed to just sit here and eat it? Then she said,no the customer is not always right.
There is something seriously wrong with service in Kenya.
So I yelled,demanded the bill,told her that I would never come to Greenview again. She said fine,still smirking. We walked out after paying the bill. Back to my comfort zone. Never again. The customer is not always right? O.....kay.
Any boycotts on fuel prices I should know about? Any ideas? Are we doing nothing?
