A Rant

by hot sauce and panko

Folks, it has been a hard two weeks. We have had a sleuth of bad incidences. We have had someone try to shake us down for free 1/2 pans ! People getting upset that we did not have sandwiches left for them after 3pm and couldn’t conceptualize that these items are ancillary to our main items, wings. APPARENTLY, THEY FEEL ENTITLED that we should anticipate their entrance and have what they want no matter what. The last straw for us, when a couple of individuals came in at 5:25pm on Sunday and we having sold out, didn’t want to accept our explanation of the status. We told them we were not accepting any more orders, we were sold out and were tired. THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE NOW POSTING THESE “HAVE FUN SMELLING MY POOP” REVIEWS ON IDIOT YELP. Look folks, I despise this organization with a vengeance.  I’m on their no call list and lo and behold that has stopped the filtering. Don’t you understand that when a reviewer reviews, Yelp turns to us and tries to hit us for a $1000 a month to be paid for ad money and to get a premier presence on their site. YOU ARE BEING MANIPULATED AND WHEN YOU SEE A RESTAURANT AT THE TOP, it is most likely there because they have  PAID FOR THAT PRESENCE.  Folks, go out and explore places and have your taste buds decide.  If things are remiss, either talk to them directly or DON’T GO BACK., IT’S THAT SIMPLE.

DON’T SCREW WITH PEOPLES LIVELIHOOD!

How would you like it if you had anonymous individuals review your daily lives and rate you.

So this is what will be posted at the shop.

PLEASE READ:

1. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SELL OUT OF ANY ITEM! We make things in small batches and therefore WE DO SELL OUT. Even if we are open, we will not take anymore orders. You can look at our hot sauces.

2. Our sandwiches do sell out early! LIVE WITH IT. This is an ancillary item but boy, do people like them.

3. We do not have any RESTROOMS. If you want to wash your hands or pee or poop do it elsewhere, we have wipes for you to use for your hands. WE ARE NOT A REST STOP!

4. If you order, understand it will take time. We make things to order and no matter what, good things take time. WE will let you know how long but it could take longer and if you do accept this WAIT, please understand that you will be eating something good and prepared with care.

5. WE ARE NOT A FAST FOOD JOINT!
And if that is your preference, PLEASE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

6. We no longer have 1/2 pans! If you need a large quantity of food, please consult our current menu for the prices. (You will note that there is no 1/2 pans on the menu). You can however call 24 hours ahead to get better prices. ALL WE ASK IS TIME TO PREPARE FOR THESE LARGE ORDERS! and not on short notice.

7. We have no vegetarian items! Sorry we tried and it didn’t work out.

8. IF YOU HAVE FELT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SLIGHTED OR TREATED BADLY TALK TO US DIRECTLY. DON’T LEAVE YOUR “HAVE FUN SMELLING MY POOP” REVIEWS ON YELP! BASTARDS AND BITCHES!

9. Finally, look at us. WE ARE VERY SMALL (the kitchen is less than 80 sq. feet). TWO PEOPLE RUN THIS PLACE. WE BELIEVE IN QUALITY RATHER THAN QUANTITY.

Folks, there is a lot of hurt and anger in this world…don’t add to it!

It’s about the food and preparation.

EAT AND ENJOY.
