The Day is finally here. The Olympic Ceremony will have the world watching. England will have all the trappings and pageantry associated with a royal wedding and I am excited to see how this nation hosts the world’s largest athletic competition and social party. Just to show you some of the numbers, here is a cool London Olympic infographic . What is there to eat? I know for certain that McDonald’s, the purveyor of health and nutrition, will be pedaling their food on Trafalgar Square. London’s mayor spoke up for the fast food chain and its long time support of the games. It seems like setting up a paradox having McDonald’s and the Olympics in the same paragraph.
Should the Olympics be more selective about their sponsors?
The US economy considers servers/waiters to be the cheapest labor in the country, paying them less than $3.00 an hour. Even with tips, the morale and turnover for servers must be low. Well, Red Lobster has figured out how to belittle these employees even more while improving the profit line by saving labor cost. The 8 Billion profit sales of Darden Restaurants, which include Red Lobster and Olive Garden, have created server assistants positions and are demoting servers to fill eliminated bus boy positions. Don’t expect any decent service for a while? I look at the bright side. This could be the way to have servers get paid minimum wage and keep their tips one day. That is fair.
What was the worst service you received in a restaurant?
I knew it was coming eventually. City council had to weigh in on the Chick-fil-A anti-gay marriage or pro-biblical stance of their president Dan Cathy. Councilman Kenny ruffled some feathers when he told, written in letter, the Chick-fil-A president to cluck off with your discrimination. He even plans to condemn the company in this September’s City Council. Kenny is just strutting his feathers because this story was old as the cock crowed three times in Boston last week. Kenny, stop stealing other people’s eggs. I don’t get the argument. Cathy is entitled to his opinion and the company still serves whoever walks through the door, being straight or gay. Go on vacation, Kenny, and give the city a break.
Will you stop eating at Chick-fil-A based on the president’s religious views?
