  1. Laughing out loud! Literally. Those “oh so true” answers are hysterical! I have one too. THE MARIACHI SINGER GETS A DUI AS HE LEAVES😂

  2. People who walk into a clearly identified Cuban restaurant and get pissy because there are no tacos, burritos, fajitas and guac………. yeah, you just keep on asking for Mexican dishes that are not going to happen.

  3. Just so you all know ” Ignorant white people who celebrate a Mexican holiday but who also bitch about ‘illegals’ and how we need walls.😒

    White people aren’t ignorant. One can celebrate a holiday and still believe in LAWS. Now who’s ignorant?

  4. As a bartender I hear this every Cinco…… Everything ending in “O” im ready-O for a Shot-O,….. STFU-O

I want two things: a shift drink and your email address!

Someday, if I ever get my act together, I might send out a weekly newsletter about the wonderful goings on of the restaurant industry. Or maybe I won't.
