choke-town, pa. (ahhh, that feels good. forgive me, i'm better now)
i missed out on my chance for $10 and a bloody chest, as we stayed at my parents' house saturday night and went to island beach state park today. the ocean was rough, but it was a fun day. we stopped off at berkeley seafood for lunch on the way out. softshell crab sammies, lobster bisque, fried clam strips.
we got stuck in traffic on the way home, so we tried to order out from a new polish place up the block. i should have known something was weird when the 2 phone numbers on the menu were cell phones, and one of them was for ordering in polish. our 3 or 4 phone calls were redirected to a polish speaking voice mail system, so i left a message in spanglish.
so i ended up picking up food from a diner, which recently raised it's prices and hired **insert derrogatory word here**.
i had asked for a substitution on the menu (a large cole slaw instead of french fries with the grilled chicken sandwich deluxe for dw) and offered to pay extra if needed, but they managed not only to eliminate the fries, but the cole slaw as well. they didn't even include the usual tiny tablespoon sized cup of cole slaw. it was just a grilled chicken breast on a roll with lettuce and tomato, FOR $9. when the waiter handed me the bag, i reiterated my request, of which he assured me that everything was as ordered, so i left a 20% tip.
i discovered the mistake just as i was leaving for work, and called the place. the host actually argued with me that i shouldn't have asked for a substitution, and that i might be lying.
al i can say is: thank you philly.
nothing can ruin my day, not even incompetence or rudeness.
time to find a new diner.
