Before his birthday I took him out to his favorite restaurant Red Lobster, that boy sure does love the tail. And then on his actual day I took him over to The Road House for Texas food. We had free entertainment from a lady that sat behind us. She was not pleased with the service that she had gotten and was not afraid to say so very loudly but then you have to be loud at that place as the ambiance is already on the loud side. Blah blah blah-30 minutes to get salad and then it wasn’t right blah dee blah- no refills on the drinks blah dee boo who blah…Of course Beloved and I thought it would be really funny if we had gotten our food before she did. I know that may be a little mean cause I so understand where she was coming from as I certainly have gotten bad service plenty of times. But I wait to complain till after I get my food cause I don’t want it to fall on the floor or get over peppered or whatever, ya know. Beloved and I were getting great service and at first I thought it was because we were just such a loverly couple with our bright smiles and cute little smooching in the booth. Well it could have been.
They, the staff announced a birthday person and I felt my beloved stiffen up a bit, haha but I didn’t tell. It was this old man and I feel good about saying “OLD”. In fact it was an age Beloved had told our youngest daughter that “it would be neat to be that old.” The man had just turned 100, now y’all gotta admit that is neat and he was doing well enough that he went out to eat. Hell he probably drove himself and the others there. Well maybe not but it made us smile.
Back to our service… we did not get our food before the lady behind us but it wasn’t too long after that and our waiter came by often to refill our water and check on us. Good service huh? I couldn’t help but notice that every time staff members mossied by they would see us and get weird looks on their faces. Then I clicked as to why some of them had a guilty look and some were nervous and why we received good service. Not only was that night Beloved’s birthday but we had a citizen’s meeting. We are a part of the Sheriff’s Alumni. That means we took a 14 week course offered by our county’s Sherriff and passed. I think I told ya about that before. Check with your county Sherriff’s office and maybe you too can be an active citizen of your community and get a really cool shirt that has a neato “official” looking Sheriff’s type logo on it. Yelp I bet that was why our service was good or maybe it really was the cute cuddly couple thang.
