I Went to Friday's on a Saturday and got the Shaft

You know what's good? That Jack Daniel's chicken from Friday's. We went there tonight just so I could enjoy some but, egads no grilled cheese for Lean. What kind of place doesn't have grilled cheese? Really? We requested grilled cheese because we're elitist pigs who think the world revolves around them and all of our wishes should be pandered to. They said okay but they'd have to use the garlic bread, we said okay.

When it arrived Lean didn't like it so she didn't eat it. When we get the bill they charged that grilled cheese as a rib dinner, the most expensive one on the menu. The waitress says some nonsense about how the bread costs a dollar a piece and then they had to use cheese, that still should only come out to 3-4 dollars in my book. So she goes on and on and Drew blurts out We're done here, tell your manager we won't be back. She tries to backslide and say she'll take it off our bill, which should have already been done because Lean didn't eat it. Instead they charged us the highest price they could. Whatever happened to service I ask you?

Blah blah this post is boring and went nowhere, probably cuz I'm wasted from that Jack Daniel's chicken. You could have stopped reading.

A grilled cheese on garlic bread ain't no rib dinner. Maybe she would have like the rib dinner? Or at least you could have taken it home for a midnight snack. Boo.

Now go sleep off your JD.

I'm trying to figure out this wacky Delorean thing so I can post a comment at 9:17 and beat out Lisa.

It's time to start smuggling grilled cheese from home.

Maybe you can start up a grilled cheese bootlegging operation in the TGI Fridays parking lot.

Hmm. Bread is a dollar a piece...and they used cheese.

So, how much were they charging for the hamburgers? Those have bread AND cheese and...loads of other things that cost much more than bread and cheese.

I'm not buying it. I think what happened is you ran afoul of a cook and/or server who had a bad day and didn't want to...GASP...cater to a customer. Imagine--actually having to SERVE someone when you are a SERVER?

I knew a Jack Daniels once.

Lil' scrappy guy with a red beard.

I like Jack Daniels recipes from Friday's, but I gotta admit I would've been a lot meaner if they charged my that much for a grilled cheese.
Meaning, by the time I left the whole dang meal would have been free with another one to come.

I totally believe in customer service, especially when I am the customer. That did sound too elitist, did it?

Klin said...

Note to self- Proof read you idiot.

I meant charged ME not my , doh.

That's truly terrible.

I hope you took all the cutlery this time as compensation...

It also reminds me that Helena and I haven't been to the one up the road here for a while. We'll go some time and I'll write up our experiences.

Brian o vretanos said...

I meant crockery, not cutlery.

I like this post, maybe you do some of your best work while drunk.
The title was funny, you should of given her back the grilled cheese and asked her to put the ribs in it and taken it to go.
Did you pay for the rib dinner?

Tracy said...

Yeah, see the rib dinner is like ordering the Cadillac off the menu. You ordered something so low they didn't even have it, so it would have been a......I don't know a crappy car.
I hope you didn't pay for the cadillac crappy car!
You didn't pay for it in your drunken state did you Jean Knee?

I wish you had ordered a brownie instead.

Never order bourgeois fromage sanwiché from Friday's ;P

Hey It's Di said...

Who doesn't have grilled cheese for kids on the menu? (and sometimes even I get a wild hair for a grilled cheese at a restaurant) And then to not even know how to charge for one? Does TGIF stand for Toasted Grilled (cheese) Idiots Fridays? I think so!

aubrey said...

wait. this makes no sense. are you sure you're telling the story right and were not just drunk from the chicken when it happened and when you wrote this? i am not being rude, just skeptical. how much was the rib dinner? hang on..nevermind. the prices are not online. {i've never eaten at tgifridays but holy jack daniels on their menu} i'm just saying that is INSANE to charge that much for bread and cheese. insane in the membrane.

and i think brian meant to say cockery. not cutlery OR crockery.

Bee said...

I am, by nature, a cheap person when it comes to paying for food.

If they would have brought me that bill, I think I might have started eating other people's food. From other tables!

How ridiculous!

Millie said...

What buttholes.

Millie said...

(Now I want to go there and try the JD chicken, just to see if I get a buzz)

Rhonda said...

I hope you stayed long enough to let them take it off your bill? That is total B.S. Cheese and bread do not equal the same cost as a rack of ribs.

grilled cheese things said...

We are people too!

Stacey said...

Maybe they ground up the ribs to make the bread?

Or maybe they just suck and are buttheads.

It's called a brain people! Use it sometime,it's a whole new experience.
