Comments of the Day: Restaurant Temperature
Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.
In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.
Today Joanna O'Leary shared five reasons she would refuse to pay her bill at a restaurant.
Commenter The Marlboro Woman thought she'd left an important item off the list:
The number one excuse should be Mal-Functioning Air Conditioning. This has become a chronic situation in Houston as many establishments (The Fountainview Cafe) either fail to maintain aging units or deliberately jack up the thermostat to keep operating costs down. If I have to sweat while I eat, I'm leaving.
Of course, at the moment, it's frigging cold, and commenter rgwalt wrote in about experiencing the opposite situation last night:
I was at El Ray on Washington last night. Their heater was broken and it had to be 45F inside. I could see my breath. All their customers were bundled up, shivering while eating their tortilla soup. It was like a meat locker in there... I could have climbed into the rotisserie with the chickens. It took them 15 minutes to get my to-go order ready, too. Unfortunately I had paid for my food when I ordered, otherwise I would have left.
All right, the people have spoken: not too hot, not to cold. Please.
