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.

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 around…

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 just leave …

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-…
