You Got Yelped!!!


This edition of my "You Got Yelped!!!" series looks at how the business of a restaurant can affect the attitudes of customers and waiters alike.  More so on the customers side, because as far as I know, I am not responsible for bringing business into a restaurant.  I provide a valuable service once the customers are seated, but promotions and marketing are not part of the service that I provide.

Which brings me to "Ladytron K."  CLICK HERE for her Yelp profile.  She has high expectations, but is delusional about what good service is, and should seriously consider dousing herself in truffle oil and dressing her own salads with herself.  She writes on one particular experience:

My boyfriend bought  a $50 for $100 deal on http://Ladeals.com, a Groupon type site.   When we arrived at the place, we realized why they were on the Groupon circuit. The restaurant was an absolute ghost town. There were probably 5 people in the restaurant which was a relief to us because the goal was to be in and out. My birthday party was to start at 9:30ish and our reservation was at 8. This could work, right? WRONG. It could not work because the service at (restaurant) is beyond bad, even by LA standards.  I understand that coupons annoy the crap out of the every waiter on earth but COME ON. We were probably one of 3 tables he had that entire night. Unless there is a secret door that leads to a crazy packed restaurant, I really cannot imagine what the hell he was doing the entire time we were there. 

I'm actually am going to stop right here.  Ladytron K. admits out-the-gate that her boyfriend took her out for her birthday dinner using a coupon.  A coupon!  Her problems go far beyond her server not being around enough to satisfy her needs.  She needs to start with Yelping about her cheap boyfriend.  And needing to get to her "birthday party?"  Are you ten years old?  Sorry you were late for your Jolly Jump, pony rides, and face painting, but grow up you crackwhore!  If the server wasn't there enough for you, maybe you should take the hint.  You are NOT a likable person, and you need to rethink your values and place in this universe.

Ladytron K., YOU GOT YELPED!!!

Until next time... Server's don't pay their rent with compliments.

10 Ways To Get Better Service At A Restaurant

I have noticed that there are many variables that can lead to a bad dining experience, and for the customer to say that they received "poor service" has become cliche, and just the "go to" for when all things go bad in a restaurant.  Here is a Top 10 list to help customers have a positive experience the next time they dine out. 10.  SIT AT THE FIRST TABLE THE HOST GIVES YOU "This table's too round.  This table's too brown.  This table's just right."  You are not buying real estate.  So for you to pass on the first, then the second, and even the third table option the host gives you is beyond ridiculous.  The tables are all made the same, have four legs, four chairs, (if applicable,) and are strong enough to hold food, drinks, and purses.  And if you pass on a table, now you've messed up the floor plan that the host has prepared at the beginning of their shift, and everybody in the restaurant takes notice as you are aimlessly walking a

You Got Yelped!!!

As my quest to take down Yelp.com continues, I found another Yelper who continually pushes the boundaries of common decency, and deserves to be outed.  So here I go: Meet Ben P . Or, excuse me, Ben "Benitos" P.  (Whatever the hell that means!)  He seemed to have found his way into Beverly Hills and expected the red carpet to be rolled out for him because he thinks that he is somebody.  Actually, he claims to be a(n) "Iron Yelper America," as it says on his Yelp profile.  When in actuality, Ben is no more than one of the many disillusioned Yelpers who probably should've gotten his ass kicked a bit more on the playground when he was a kid.  (Again, I don't condone violence, but there is something to be said for somebody FINALLY learning their lesson.) Wow I knew going in this place was not going to be good. Right from the start?  How have you made this far in life, Ben?  That should've been the moment for you to turn around and leave.  And not

Excuse Tips

It's ideal for a server to receive 18 to 20 percent gratuity for a job well done.  Now it seems that customers are looking to leave an excuse rather than a monetary tip explaining why they couldn't leave their server any money.  WTF?!! Of course, because my landlord would love to receive an excuse instead of a check for rent this month. "I don't have the money for rent, because I'm a writer/comedian.  But I adore this building.  So secure." The above picture was found on Yahoo.com .  One of the comments said that they thought this was an altered pic, but I have actually seen this happen to myself and co-workers.  And by-the-way, what if the server waiting on the woman was a single parent?  So the lady who wrote this has now started a domino effect on their server who is struggling to make ends meet.  And so on, and so on...  Get bent! I don't believe in saying that if you can't afford to go out, that you should never go out.  There are ways t
