Offendeditis strikes Lewisville, Texas

Lewisville is not too far from Dallas, and I used to go there a lot. So it is with a heavy heart that I report that a case of Offendeditis has been confirmed there

 

A patron called Lewisville police after what they claim happened during a stop at the restaurant and bar called Redneck Heaven. When officers went to the establishment to investigate they found female waitresses serving customers with only body paint and pasties covering their breasts.

There were no charges filed or arrests made, because the wait staff had broken no law.

Lewisville Police Chief Russell Kerbow subsequently sent a memo to the City Manager saying that while the restaurant was not in violation of the current ordinance, members of the department feel the definition of nudity or state of nudity needs to be changed.

Kunke said the issue would be presented to the city council. “The discussion for council tonight is whether they want to amend the ordinance to say specifically that body paint, body dye and tattoos do not count as opaque coverage.”

As Stephen Green commented

Somebody went to a place called Redneck Heaven, saw some body paint, and went to the cops about it. Now the city council needs to get involved, because… well, I guess because of pretty 23-year-old waitresses who aren’t wearing very much.

If you don’t like what the servers are (or aren’t) wearing, then just leave the damn restaurant. This business of people thinking their personal preferences need to be given the weight of law accounts for every major problem facing this country today. Every single one.

So now we’ll have a bunch of ignorant politicians debating the weighty matter of exactly what geometry of the female breast away from the nipple is allowed to be exposed and what constitutes proper coverage of said side- and/or under-boob.

I’ll tell you who the boobs are: the people who went to the cops instead of walking back to their car.

I could not have said it any better!

 

21 things servers hate, and some that bartenders hate

Buzzfeed has the 21 things every server hates. My favorite one is no 21. I have seen worse

I think the two worst examples I ever saw, was a dollar left on a $67 tab, on a credit card, and trust me, this is a good waitress who got it, and 31 cents, left, again on a credit card for a 54.69 tab, ans of course their kids left a mess from Hell. Some people should just not go out to eat, that is all there is to it.

Now, some things a bartender hates. 

#1 The guy, who orders a shot and says “hook me up”. I have heard that one, or some variation of it about 850 times over the years. Number of times the guy actually tips, well, if anything? ZERO! So basically, this douche nozzle wants you to risk your job over pouring his drink, for a buck, if that much?

#2 The camper. This is the person who sits at your bar, eats, has a drink, or two, then sits, and sits, and… takes up a seat when you have people lined up waiting for seats.

#3 The patron who wants you to wait on them, and them only, although you have 15 other guests at your bar, and a service well to make drinks for. This is the person who needs something constantly. They are also the person who orders their burger, or salad, and THEN after they get it start the modifications to their order.

#4 Mr, or Ms Cell Phone. They sit at the bar, yacking on their phone. Do you let them be? Do you try to use sign language to ask them what you can get them? Then, after you get them a drink, and their order placed, everyone at the bar must listen to their obnoxious phone conversation for the next 30 minutes.

#5  And this is the most hated by far. It is the people you converse with, their drink is always refilled, or new drink made, they never wait for anything. They run up a good sized bill. They thank you, compliment you, but tip 10%. 

Another quick one for you. Had a girl a few years ago, sat, drink, ate, all the time talking to a guy at the bar. Telling him about her job, as a server. Bitching about folks that tip 10%, over and over. Wanna guess what she tipped? Less than the dreaded 10%. How badly I wanted to ask her why. But, most people tip well, no complaints. And, yes, I have lots of bad service stories too, believe me.
