So I went out to eat the other day at a restaurant with a guy’s name in it. The service was brutal… brutal. Their prices had gone up, and the waitress was clearly new… or just useless. Ordered my meal, a caesar salad, and it came out with basically no dressing on it. So I got the girl over, told her how dry it was, and asked for a side dressing to put on top. SHE CHARGED ME $2.50.
Went to another restaurant about a month ago, a restaurant that just seems more concerned with expanding then putting out a good product. The food took 45 minutes to get out there. The manager apologized, gave us free dessert, and was very good about the whole thing… but I’m not going back.
This is why fast-food restaurants never let ya down. They’re fast. The foods good otherwise you wouldn’t go there. And sure the service may at times be unpleasant, but you’re not “obligated” to tip the “waitress” 15-20%, so you deal with it.
I liked the food at the first 2 restaurants, but whats the point? Why pay for crappy service? Who’s with me? No?

Here we go… get ready.
The co-founder of Gasbuddy.com is predicting gas prices could hit $1.40 a litre by the Victoria Day long weekend. What?!!
Jason Toews says the Canadian average price, which is running about $1.28 a litre, is at its highest since before the financial crisis hit in the fall of 2008. Lethbridge gas sits at $117.9 right now… WAY too high for what the price of oil is.
He says prices can vary from station to station, so it’s worth shopping around to save a few cents. Good luck!

There’s been some weird Hollywood baby names but this one may take the cake
David and Victoria Beckham reportedly plan on naming their unborn daughter Santa. Now the rumor is… it isn’t because of the big guy from the North Pole, but rather Posh Spice’s fondness for the town of Santa Monica, California.
This wouldn’t be the first time the couple has named a child after a city. Their oldest son Brooklyn was named after the place where he was conceived. Doesn’t that mean that Santa was conceived in Santa Monica.
I’d like to see little Medicine Hat Beckham.

Sure, like a week after I took money out for our trip to New York City… the loonie has taken off.
Rising commodity prices are giving the loonie a lift, as its up more than half a cent in morning trading (Wednesday) to $1.04.28 cents U-S. That’s a three-and-a-half year high as gold prices move further into record territory and oil prices hold firm above 108-dollars U-S a barrel.
I traded my money in last week. Wanted $600 American, and it cost me $595 Canadian. Thats when it was around $1.02. I heard rumors it was going to a buck-o-five… but I didn’t want to be on the short end in case it didn’t. I was wrong. Dang it!
Great time to go to the States.

Charlie sheen and his brand-new speaking engagement tour kicked off this weekend, and to say it didn’t go well, would be an understatement
The first stop in his “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Tour” started Saturday night in Detroit. It started well, as the crowd stood and cheered when he and his two “goddesses” took the stage. Then it started to turn.
Not long into the show someone in the audience booed. Sheen came right back with “I’ve already got your money, dude.” Things only got worse. Sheen had said Snoop Dogg would perform at the show, but it didn’t happen.
Then Sunday night, Sheen got a standing ovation in Chicago. Sheen made some changes to his road show. He used a talk show-style format in Chicago, with an interviewer asking questions. Thats right… if it doesn’t work the first time around… make changes. He did. Good job Charlie!
