I called his post outlandish after his response to the original helpful responses. It is a bit outlandish to jump up on your stump and scream. If a restaurant burns your food do you stand on your chair and scream about the quality to other patrons? No you contact your server and have your food cooked again. Only if its burned again or after serious displeasure should you get upset. Everyone takes this stuff too personally.

Well, you do that and you'll probably get spit in your replacement food. Who cares if they spit in your replacement pod pack?

When I am at a restaurant I eat what is served and keep my thoughts about issues to myself. I might not go back but I don't, as a general rule, upset the people who prepare my food

I may be disabled, but I still have both of my legs. If I'm personally sending something back at a restaurant it's is for good reason and it goes back permanently. Either way, this isn't about me and it was still out of line calling him outlandish.

He had a legitimate grievance even if he was venting about it here prematurely. His follow up post was in line as well since his first replies were people similarly attacking his post. It seems like time some folks refresh themselves on the site rules and posting etiquette.

You don't have to like it, but you do have to respect it. This is Carters house, not ours and a certainly level of mutual respect is expected. That went right out the window in this thread with the first response.

You have a good point there. Just because a gun is made in asia does not mean it's crap. The empire axe is made in taiwan, and that's an amazing gun. I hate it when people go 'have fun with your made in china gun well I rub my BL/CCM/EGO in your face' because I went out and purchased a mid-end.

As a food service worker I'm saddened to see that there is enogh fear of food tampering. that someone would enjoy a less than proper meal that they are paying for. Perhaps its my nature but if the kitchen screws up my tables food, they damn well better fix it with a smile on their face. It is quite literally their job to cook food correctly when they fail to do so, they need to do it again. If you are polite about it, i couldnt find you a server who would be mad about taking food back.
Deuce, i see your point, i will agree to disagree.
