Tragic Fate of a Son of Restaurant Owners

Mocking one of the guests who were eating at their restaurant



Tea Time

Good service from a restaurant can make customers save a good impression, they will go back to a restaurant. Lots of little things that bring good impression for guests, appetizers, such as nuts or small candies when guests began to sit up.

A small thing that can make a good impression and be a reminder of the good. The other thing is the friendliness of the waiters.

Regardless, the food menu as the main force of a restaurant, but involuntarily a restaurant can give a lot of good impression for customers. But what if the opposite happened? Human factors can change the perception of the customer who ultimately makes the restaurant's name be blackened.

For example, what often happens is the neglect and lack of respect for customers, often the news broke about the customers who were disappointed with the restaurant, a typing error in the name of customers performed by a waitress.

Are you able to accept, when waiters treat you with irreverent? Food bills often taken as rude or even racist, for reasons that can not be explained. And, you'll be surprised when you see the acting of the servant was often feign surprise when caught doing that wrong.

An article from a lifestyle site, CNN Indonesia, wrote an interesting overview of an owner of a restaurant, Tony Ambrosio, All Stars Bar & Grill Restaurant in Warwick, Rhode Island, has fired the restaurant bartender being caught giving the title of its customers that are written on the food bill with the word 'fatty'.

Well, you'd better respect the owner, because the bartender was his own son. Great!

As written on the Fox News, the disappointed customers were then upload the photos of the food bills to the social media to express his disappointment.

Indeed Tony Ambrosio submit his apologies to these customers, and provide meal vouchers amounting to US $ 50. Even then forbid his 18 years child to visit and eat into the restaurant.

Despite the incident, whoever does not want to undergo treatment in a less friendly at place to eat. Wherever it happens.

Meanwhile as a comparison, on the other hand, the UK Statistics Agency, noting the number of tourists from North America rose 11 percent and from EU countries rose four percent.

Such is the case, considering the EU countries using the euro currency, travel agent getting charge a higher price, but also alarmed the British airline company, as British Airways which had to accept the bitter with the decline in the stock to 20 percent.

The world is still waiting for other things to happen, at least has to be experienced to two years, although it is still too early to make predictions. Brexit impact still need some time to be able to guess the direction of the wind blowing, especially for the British tourism in the previous period that got the increase in the number of tourists up to five percent in the last 12 months up to April, and specifically the implications for British tourists who immediately feel. Surely.

Fans of pizza easily found in the United States, and it more or less the same in Brazil, especially in Sao Paulo, and we had no trouble finding shops where pizza is offered.

But. A less encouraging news for the fans, because the pizza is considered polluting. Why?

True, indeed it happens. The pizzas - typical culinary originally came from Italy - were taste delicious is always cooked in the traditional way using firewood, it is believed always brings the aroma and taste more delicious than the conventional way (with modern cooking equipment).

The use of the traditional way of using a wood-burning oven. But it is very unfortunate loss, while producing more delicious taste, the way is now deemed to have a negative influence on the environment. Citing CNN Indonesia's website, said that the burning produced smoke pollutes the air.

Further through the article in the Daily Mail, a scientific study has found that pollution in major cities like Sao Paulo, Brazil, remains as high despite reducing car emissions.

We can find out a further study from the University of Surrey, Dr Prashant Kumar, said that high pollution comes from wood-burning stoves that are used for the pizza, which has now become a tradition at the time of this popular food cooking.


The Pizza

So it goes, popular foods favored by many people in major cities of the world, particularly the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, a city which is so dense and produces around one million pizzas every day to be eaten immediately or take home.

Of course we need to think of another way, a solution, without compromising the environment, so that will be done by the citizens of the city of Sao Paulo and other cities in the world to find ways to reduce emissions to the environment. Pizza is always okay, but the environment is worth saving.

The stewardess had given the announcement that the plane would soon take-off, as well as other announcements required by passengers. The young man, aged about 23 years, somehow he smiled. Well, let's see, what he would do.

Next to his seat there was a young girl, according to ABC, about 16 years old, seems to be so tired, so the girl was asleep, and did not care about her surroundings, even more passengers on the seat next.

As noted in an article at News Australia, apparently the young man felt attracted to the young girl who was asleep, he was unable to control himself, he forgot about the surroundings, you will not be surprised at all, he moves his body, and then wanted to kiss the girl's lips.

That day was less lucky for him!

He was seen by someone other than a seat, and tell the flight attendants. So the flight attendant immediately walked into the pilot room, and report it. Pilot acted quickly and decided to turn around and the plane landed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Indeed, the young man were far from lucky day, police at the airport soon after and secure him, he looked embarrassed, but cooperative. And, maybe a room in King County Jail is being prepared for him.

The hubbub for a moment in the plane, the other passengers applauded, but the girl who was troubled appears to be still a little in ‘shock’, but she was immediately at ease.

The airplane then get back towards the initial destination, Anchorage. Then, goodbye!
