And Such Small Portions

At the place where Kathleen had her birthday party, Stacy got lousy service and undercooked - and then overcooked - food, so, understandably, she complained.
In response to her complaint, she got a $100 gift certificate for the restaurant.
Now it's probably just me, but there's just something about getting a certificate to eat at the place where you got lousy service and lousy food as a way of making up for said lousy service and food, that just brings to mind that old joke: The food was terrible...and such small portions.
But, like I said, that's probably just me, and we all know what a weirdo I am, or at least most of you suspect what a weirdo I am, probably not knowing or understanding the ways or the extent to which I am one.
In any case, Scott and Stacy decided to share the wealth with me, and I had dinner there with them tonight.
The food and service were much better this time around (though in fairness I didn't have any problem with either last time).
After dinner I came home and meant to write an entry, but then I didn't, and I ended up getting busy doing something else.
Then I finished that and decided to write this quick and mostly pointless entry.
So there you have it.
Now you can say, "That Threshold post was boring...and so short."

It was definitely much better this time around. The server cracked me up, though. He was so over-the-top with his sincerity and coolness that he breezed right past them and into douche-baggery. I'd rather have someone that was trying too hard than our previous experience where it was obvious that they weren't trying at all.
