    People that come on a highly respected and technical forum and harass longtime members who work in the building trades.

    I gotta new one today, and on our anniversary dinner date no less.

    Jackass high dollar restaraunts with Italian names, that advertise as "Authentic Italian",
    and then serve garbage that came out of a Gordon Food service Can and tastes like slightly rancid Chef Boyardee.

    The nerve to ask 40 bucks a plate is another issue that does not piss me off, it inspires calm and logicly planned evisceration with dull and rusted tools.

    No love. None.

    Stay safe!

    Steve,

    Thanks for the offer on the Pizza!!!
    I appreciate it:cheers:

    We have a good Italian place nearby, and a really good Pizza joint in the next town over. Nothing better than mediocre mind you, but honest chow with zero pretense and real world pricing.

    We got caught out of town, asked around a bit, took locals advice on the Restaraunt, and got burned.

    The Marinara sauce was literally GFS Canned crap,and they put Canned Mushrooms on the pizza. Bacon is NOT pancetta, Swiss is NOT Fontinella, and I have yet to witness perfectly square proscuitto.

    Basicly I paid 80 bucks for Cafeteria quality slop that was presented as bieng otherwise.
    The cost dosn't piss me off near as much as the false claims, and outright mistruths in thier menu. Poor waitress gal didn't know what to think when she asked if we needed a box, and the wife told her "No thanks, we already tasted a couple".

    Stay safe!
    Dingeryote

    I agree! There is nothing like going out, especially for an occasion and getting crap service or crap food for good money. Heck you can get that cheaper at home ;)

    Almost wants to make you go back there later with a broomstick and a potato or two to work on the cooks exhaust pipes with. Or bringing dykes along for the 1 minute valve stem repairs that might be required.

    Calling a store to make sure they have what you need, driving 30-40 miles to
    get there only to find out they don't have what you need.:bang:
    But they can order it for you, so that you can drive over again to pick up what they said was in stock in the firstplace.

    WHOA!!!!
    I forgot about that little irk.

    When it happens to me, it's always some younger gal or dude, and when I get there thier computer shows 1 in inventory(Last time it was 100 series Roller chain) and the ####ing idiot geek, was too damn lazy to physically check, because computers are never wrong and the "inventory system never fails like that".

    In the past I have asked for a refund on the fuel burned to get there, just so I can enjoy putting them on the spot as bad as they did me.
    The confused expression and blinking is priceless when they realize they are screwed.

    Sometimes it's good for an apology, and that works with me unless I took time from driving elsewhere that DOES have the Item, and it's a time issue to get it. Then I gotta just leave for the sake of humanity LOL!!

    If I call and ask and they say they have it, I now ask "How many, and are ya sure?"

    It saves gas, Tums, and potentially some poor dumb kids Job.

    Gawd I hate that one though!!

    Stay safe!
