This Is Why I Don’t Send Food Back

calzoneMenu.jpgI don’t care how bad it is, or how screwed up an order, I’ll almost always accept what is given me at a restaurant and shut the hell up, knowing that sending something back or complaining is never going to have a positive result, even if you don’t realize your ingesting a cook’s saliva. Cooks are very defensive people. Of course, it rarely gets this bad:

Flagler County authorities say a restaurant owner pistol-whipped and beat a customer who complained that his takeout order was incorrect.
Joseph Milano, the owner of Goomba’s Pizzeria, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and released on bail.
According to a police report, security footage from the pizzeria shows that Milano struck Richard Phinney with a gun. He then jumped over a counter and started to assault Phinney and his roommate.
Phinney was at the pizzeria to collect a refund for a calzone, which he said was prepared incorrectly. He was taken to a hospital after the incident with a bloodied head.

If the guy says you’re calzone was prepared correctly, just take him at his word. It’s a lot easier for everyone, and it’ll save you a trip to the hospital.

Goomba’s Pizzeria?? I wouldn't send anything back *there*. :)

Yeah, not for nothin', but if you are eating at a place called "Goomba's", you need to eat the calzone and shut the fuck up. Capisce?
