YOU GOT YELPED !!!


Just when you think that Yelp could not get any worse, I've discovered another path of destructive Yelpers who are... wait for it... Yelping about places of worship!  That's right.  Even with the separation of Church and State, apparently Yelpers think that their reviews will be the "arms length distance" between the two.

Meet Maria A.  It seems that Maria is in need of some enlightenment.  However she chooses to find in through her written Yelp paragraphs.  If Yelp were a bible, she would want to have her own section.  So this one is from the book of Maria A., and the "A" could only mean "ASININE."

Maria writes about her experience at a Jewish temple in Beverly Hills.

"Came here to do an observation study (ethnographic research) . I went on a Saturday morning. The people here seem very materialistic with their apperal, cologne, perfumes, and fancy cars they bought off credit. It was someones Bar/T Mitzva this day which was interesting."-- First off, she claims to be some sort of student of cultural studies, but yet Maria misspelled apparel, and bar mitzvah?  And how does she know the cars were bought with credit?  She must have done a silent survey with the crowd.  

She continues...

"What really annoyed me the most, was how half the time the leaders or rabbi's ( i think) were auctioning...yes...AUCTIONING  for having the honor of coming up to the podium and holding the Torah or saying a grace or prayer.  I witnessed one man who bid $500 dollars for his wife to go up and hold the Torah for about 5 min. (Thats $100 per min btw)."--Again, she claims to be this "student" yet she doesn't know who leads a Jewish congregation.  But I will admit, I would like to see an auction like that.  "Up next in the auction, a chance to hold an actual Torah, rumored to have been looked at by Moses himself.  Do I hear 500 dollars?"  But Maria does know her math...

"The main auditorium has multi-million dollar glass chandeliers..like 4 of them."--Maria is a student of culture, AND multi-million dollar interior design.  

"This place reminded me of bible study when Jesus Christ threw a tantrum when he saw the Jews doing business in the holy temple."--I grew up Catholic, and I don't remember the part of the Bible where Jesus threw a tantrum.  "I told you Jews, no business in the Holy Temple!"  

"I also suggest the IRS should look into this, because one of the Persian women told me that this occurs every Saturday."--So now Maria's a whistle-blower.  And now all the cologne and BMW's should make sense to her.  They're Persian.  

"In the end, +1 star for the excellent food provided at the end of the ceremony."--I'm surprised she didn't review the food as well.  So she was offended, but not enough to turn down the food?   

"But I will not be coming back here again because I feel like this is not a real place to worship one's faith. I believe there are other Jewish synagogues that are true to their faith and practice good ethics, and moral behaviors in their place of worship."--Meaning she won't be back because she's too busy reviewing other synagogues, churches, and mosques.

Maria A, YOU GOT YELPED !!!
 

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

A Letter to Yelpers

Dear Yelpers:

You think you're smart.  Nope.  You think you're cool.  Wrong again.  You think this is the popularity that you have been yearning to have since high school.  (BUZZ!)  Incorrect.

It's time for you to take the energy that you put into your Yelping, and focus your attention on yourself.  Your "opinion" is not important.  The fact that your meal was ruined by the color of your server's apron, or the shape of the plates, or that they didn't give you anything for free on your birthday just means that you were not a planned pregnancy, and you should be grateful that you made it to full term.

Ouch!  That hurts, doesn't it?  Well, do you think that destroying someone's business is okay?  That demeaning your server or bartender makes you look like you know what you're talking about?  If your opinion REALLY mattered, (it doesn't,) then you should crawl out from your hiding space where you Yelp on your laptop, and talk to someone face-…

Cover My Shift!!!

The anxiety of trying to get your shift covered at a serving job ranks up there with wondering if the pee stick is going to turn positive or negative after a long night of having shots with your coworkers, and you ended up hooking up with one of them.  Eventually, the pregnancy scare turns out to be negative, you get your shift covered, and everything is right with the world.

But trying to get your shift covered is never easy.  Especially when you feel like you go out of your way to cover other people's shifts when they ask, but when the time comes for you to ask them, it becomes an entire ordeal.

"Hey Steve, would you be able to cover my shift next Wednesday night?  My parents are going to be in town," I asked last Saturday night.

"I might be able to, but I won't know until Tuesday.  Can I get back to you then?" Steve replied.

"That's cutting it close," I said.  "Would you be able to tell me by Monday?"

"I can't cause I h…

Don't Forget Your Teeth

An older lady was dining with her husband, granddaughter, and her granddaughter's boyfriend one night, when the old lady turns to me and says,

"What do you have that's soft to eat?  I forgot my teeth."

Who the hell forgets their teeth?  Let me get this straight, when you looked at yourself in the mirror before you left, you didn't notice something was missing when you smiled?


"I know how you feel," I said, "sometimes I forget my phone.  I feel lost without it."  She just looked at me as if she didn't know what I meant by that because she still uses a rotary phone.  (Look it up.)

I explained that we have soups that she could have, but she was concerned about her choices for salad.  She and her family were using a Groupon, so they had to select from the items on the prefixed menu.

"Is the salad soft?" she asked.

"I could have the kitchen chop it fine for you.  That would make it easier to eat." I replied.  I was also g…
