You Got Yelped!!!

Meet M S from Los Angeles, CA.  A woman, who in typical Yelper-cowardly fashion, has hidden her face in her profile pic because she doesn't want the world to know what she looks like when she writes pointless reviews on Yelp.

What makes this review even more repulsive than most is the fact that she blames the restaurant for her allergy.  Another person who failed to disclose important information that could've possibly killed her, and now it's the restaurant's fault.




I had the Brussel sprouts and blue crab grilled cheese my first visit here. Less than 2 hours after my meal here I break out in hives. The Brussel sprouts were tasty and had a good portion served. But the blue crab grilled cheese was what I was allergic too. 

I have an allergy to poor grammar.  M S must have been taught by Yoda.  "Taste the brussel sprouts had."

The owner wrote a very apologetic message to me and invited me to come back and give them another chance as they wanted to make it right. Though I honestly appreciate the gesture, my allergic experience was so bad it was enough to scare me away as I cannot potentially put my health at risk again by eating their food. I did recover but it took many days of antihistamine pills, and walking around with huge well which I still have scars from more than a month later. I've eaten she'll fish since then and everything has been all good. 

What a crackwhore!  So it's possible that she didn't know she was allergic to crab, but the fact that the owner stepped up to remedy the situation and she blames them is beyond me.  And if she had been "walking around with huge well" for a month, she wouldn't had scars, she would've had a bad back.  I'm glad she has recovered, but eating "she'll fish" wasn't the problem.  The problem was Blue Crab.

Thanks for your sincere apology and attention TLT, GREAT customer service which is why I'll give you 2 stars but I can't bring myself to return for the food.

I think TLT is getting the better end of this deal.  You don't need weirdos like her.  BUT, here's where I give TLT credit, they responded to M S on Yelp.  If you don't know, owners can reply to Yelpers to try to make the situation right.  Check out what the GM, Zach W., wrote:

Dear MS,
Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to hear that you have recovered from your allergic attack. Food allergies are a scary and could be a life threatening issue to deal with. The same day you ate here, we served several dozen Blue Crab Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and unfortunately, you were the only customer with any allergic or negative reactions. We have contacted Sysco Foods, the distributor of the product, and they received no similar cases or reports at the time. It is frightening when our bodies let us down, but publicly blaming the food or restaurant because you had an allergic reaction isn't right. If you need to blame us to feel better, go ahead. We're just happy you're back to feeling better. We have maintained an A rating since we've opened and constantly put a ton of attention and detail to proper health and safety practices. We strive to deliver a 5 star experience and it is important to know of any food allergies prior to dining so we can better serve you.
Best Regards,
Zach W.
GM, TLT Food

BRAVO ZACH!  BRAV-FRICKIN-O!  "...publicly blaming the food or restaurant because you had an allergic reaction isn't right."  You hear that M S?  It sucks that you had a reaction, but you should be thanking them either way.  Either you discovered that you have an allergy to Blue Crab, or you were too dumb to let them know that you're allergic to Blue Crab.  

I figured out what M S stands for... Majorly Stupid!

YOU GOT YELPED M S !!!

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

I hate Yelp. Any jerk can go on and slam a business with no accountability and based on nothing more than their opinion. Also Yelp sucks because they try to extort business' to pay them otherwise Yelp will put their negative ratings first and bury any positive reviews. The worst expression ever coined is "The customer is always right". It has just bred a society of spoiled, entitled, lacking in manners and common courtesy assholes.

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…

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…
