delivery, food, postaday2013, Restaurant, room service, staff
You know that you’ve had a pretty good day when the worst thing that happens is that room service isn’t answering your call for food. I am going to get up and go downstairs to order our food in person, we were looking forward to eat alone in our room and watch t.v. It’s only a minor inconvenience, what is weird is that I went down before to order in person and no one was manning the dining room. My hubby had a good idea and called the hotel restaurant, so I placed the order and I will deliver it to ourselves in about twenty minutes. I don’t know what is going on with the restaurant this evening, this surely can’t be good for business. This morning when I was having breakfast, they had three people and the service was fine. This evening at 6:15, this doesn’t bode well for tonight’s receipts. Perhaps a waiter called in sick, but still when I was down there before, they only had one table of four occupied. Oh well I can’t worry for them, there isn’t anything that I can do about it. I hope that the kitchen isn’t short staffed because then we will surely be in trouble, I may be supplying the service but they definitely won’t let me in their kitchen to cook our food. Theoretically there isn’t much that you can do to ruin pasta, soup and salad, I hope that I don’t end up eating my words, we haven’t tasted anything yet.
It’s always an adventure. 😀
I used to run restaurants and even though I left the industry seven years ago, I still become agitated when I hear stories like this. That said, S*@# happens! I am curious, how much longer did you wait for your food?
A wonderful meal can sometimes make up for long waits and horrible service. So I guess the question I really should be asking is, did you end up licking your plate or eating your words? 🙂
When I went down to pick it up twenty minutes late, it was ready. My hubby and I ate everything, it was good, I was kind of starving by that time but it was tasty. I had pasta with black olives, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and basil with tons os black pepper, nice and spicy. I think that I ate my words because I practically licked the plate from hunger. 🙂
lol… I am glad you enjoyed your meal and you sure made it sound tasty! 🙂
I love writing about food 🙂
