Complaints & Bailouts

This weekend I told Katie we were too young to put up with bad service and crappy restaurants. But I think the saying is usually employed by old folks -- they don't take no gruff and their time is short, right?

Either way, we're on our way to forging a no-nonsense policy.

Over the summer, we walked out of Ike's in Minneapolis because of a dirty glass and some deceit about their offering breakfast. This weekend we walked out of Red Chopstix, a new Staunton restaurant, because it was buffet-only, had seating like a cafeteria, and felt a bit like a sauna.

And in honor of Hunter S. Thompson, we penned three energetic complaint letters. PDFs:
+ Tribe hummus
+ Wendy's
+ CVS

I've always avoided being too vocal about disappointment with restaurant service. Mainly because of the fact that these are the people handling your food, and I don't want people handling my food who got chewed out by their boss because of me, even if they deserved it.

I guess the only situation where I'd walk out or complain via letter would be if I knew I would never, ever, return.
