Ask and you shall receive

In my opinion, most women could best be described as "passive aggressive."  We get mad at people or situations around us, but we never have enough guts to say anything.  This is particularly true at restaurants.  Even if the food comes out cold, or the server basically forgets about us and gives us terrible service, we never say anything.

However, there are times when you just can't take it anymore.  Last night at dinner, there were about 10 of us celebrating Whitney's birthday.  I'll be honest, the service wasn't great.  It started when I said to the server, "Would it be too much of a pain to get separate checks?"  She said yes and walked away.  It culminated with us being asked to leave because they needed the table for other people.  3 girls were still eating at this point.

As we were leaving, I told the manager, "Seriously, that was terrible service and we won't be back."  Fast forward through about a 10 minute conversation that involved some shouting from a few of us, and pretty soon we were getting VIP treatment, free drinks, free shots...even desserts with fire crackers shooting flames from them.  It was fantastic.

So to you Keagan, the manager at Bull and Bear--you were amazing and you truly understand customer service.  I will be back.

To you all my passive-aggressive ladies--it truly pays to stick up for yourself.
