Alright. I relent.

We went to dinner at a sushi place I had been to many times before. We even ate there last year, I believe.

The waiter, was, shall we say, fucking incompetent. First he screwed up our drink orders. I ordered a glass of water and was served a pint of beer. Gilly ordered a beer and a water and was served only her beer. Bill ordered a seltzer and waited approximately 10-15 minutes for this to appear. Mind you, this is a small restaurant, it ain't the dining room at Folsom Prison.

We ordered our food, which, first off, took forever to arrive. When it finally did, Gillian and Gerry were told that their shrimp roll and shrimp sashimi were not available. Why these morons picked the moment when all our food was served to tell them that is beyond me. Oh, wait, they're incompetent. That's it. So Gilly and Gerry, without any dinner, ordered shrimp tempura. Meanwhile, I had ordered an Inari. All the food is there and I'm thinking it's coming up. Not to be. We finally pointed it out to the waiter and he got right on it and in another 10 minutes, after we had pretty much eaten all the food, he delivered an Inari Roll, which is like ordering a steak and getting a fajita. Gerry, meanwhile, was waiting and waiting for his shrimp tempura to come out. They finally brought that out to him. Finally, when we're all pretty much done, they bring out Gilly's shrimp tempura.

So I went up to the bar to speak to the owner about the service and ask that the Inari and tempura be taken off the bill. What followed was astonishing. He refused. He said he'd take off the Inari but not the tempura, because we had "added" to our order three times. Well, excuse me, jackass, but we did not add to our order, we were forced to because you don't know how to run a restaurant.

I tried to reason with him, tried to be nice, but he was, quite simply, a monumental dick. After only a minute or so of back and forth, he said to me, "Get outta my face." I tried to rationalize with him but he kept telling me to get outta his face.

Finally, disgusted, I went back to the table and we figured out the check, leaving exactly a 66 cent tip. As we prepared to leave I went back up to the bar and politely, but firmly, informed the owner that what he did was totally wrong and he knew it.

His reaction? "Get outta my face." I walked away and he was still yelling at me and cursing at this point. The waiter, meanwhile, gets in my face and threatens me. I told him to hit me. Unfortunately, he did not. The owner then comes out from behind the bar as I'm walking out the door and, after telling me numerous times to get outta his face, gets IN my face, threatening to slam me into a tree outside the restaurant. Once again, I invite bodily harm and request that he do so. And once again, unfortunately, bodily harm was not visited upon me.

Now mind you, the most offensive thing I said to the guy at any point was that it had taken "10 hours" for some of our food to come out. This guy was just a total and complete asswipe.

And the best part is I still have a multitude of friends in that town. And now they are all going to know the story. In fact, I'm having some of them walk into the restaurant and tell the guy to his face that they will no longer patronize his restaurant.

Get outta your face? Gladly. And so will a lot of other people.

(Did I leave anything out?)
