My Favorite Mistake

You are rude to me, sometimes you won't even see me, and often I have to bend to your will....but still I love you so....

Why do I keep coming back time after time against my better judgment? Because of your delicious food! Oh Druid your fish and chips are the best I have ever had. Your steak and potatoes are the things of legend and your beer selection-it is a pathway to my heart.

Your dark side, however is something that really turns me off. I would say I can only even get a seat 50% of the time and even when I do get a table, more than once I have been asked to move- either down to a table or to the bar--in the middle of my meal.

This past weekend was the most egregious of restaurant rudeness. We had finished our meal just paid the bill and were finishing up our drinks (I still had 1/2 a beer) and we were asked to hurry up and leave (by our server who we had already tipped-coincidence I think not) because other people were waiting for the table.

I have never had that experience in a restaurant before and I vow-Druid if I ever return (which I really would like to say I won't but I know the lure of your fish and chips will pull me in)--know this---that 23% tip-you will never ever ever see that again.

I have a good idea that the staff pools their tips so I can hurt the rude guy even if he isn't my server! There will be a debt paid to me---watch out Druid my day will come.

I wish I could quit you!
