My friends and I once went to a fab looking restaurant while travelling abroad. The food was wonderful and the staff were super nice, and even better we were seated outside in the hot and sunny weather, so it was a perfect environment to eat. When we had finished our meal I decided I needed […]

My friend once told me of a strange incident that happened to her while eating at a local fast food restaurant with her girlfriends. Her friend ordered a simple grilled chicken burger and asked that the mayonnaise be left out. Her burger was given to her and they all sat down to eat. However when […]

My mother and my aunt and uncle and I once went to a lovely looking restaurant while holidaying in Portugal. It was scalding hot so we ate in the enclosed area outside. A window was open that apparently was part of the kitchen. But no sooner had we sat down and ordered our food than […]

Hey Dev, This happened a few years ago but it still bothers me to think about it. My wife and I attended a family wedding out of town. After a long afternoon, 11 relatives wanted to go out to dinner. We called a restaurant near our motel (chain, not pricey, not fast food.) They told […]

Once my girlfriend and I went out for a hot drink at a local cafe. It was the middle of summer so the front doors were wide open to keep the temperature down and let a fresh breeze sweep inside. Unfortunately, as the doors were wide open, the smell of freshly baked muffins and cakes […]

Curried Rat

I went to a Thai restaurant and ordered Panang Curry with white rice and chicken. What I was served was not chicken. It was slimy, gray, and very chewy. I’m pretty sure I was served rat. I ate one bite and spit it up. I was too embarrassed to tell the waitress what I thought, […]

I was robbed during BROAD DAYLIGHT at CB while parked along the sidewalk on the side of the building. When I asked the clerk to call police, their first response was “the same thing happened last week.” They don’t have security cameras in place to help catch criminals. They sent a letter saying they “aren’t responsible […]

I decided to sneak out with my daughter for a certain dessert. We arrived there and got a table quickly, and ordered a single dessert to share. The waiter never brought us water. After 10 minutes I had to flag down another waiter to ask for water. It took another 15 minutes to get the dessert. I […]

I have wanted to get this off my chest for 20 years. I absolutely think they should outlaw people who order hot tea. OK, I know you’re thinking that I’m crazy, but now that tea, especially green tea, is supposed to be so good for you, everyone is ordering it. When you’re a server with […]
