Grand Gesture II

Today I was served two soggy pieces of wheat bread which were called "French Toast".  No grand gesture this time. I sent it back.

Two still soggy pieces of wheat bread were returned.  I didn't eat 'em.  I TOOK 'EM HOME WITH ME.

Soon a knock at my door.  The head chef, the old folks home administrator, and the president of the residents council were there and asked to see the offending breakfast.

Head chef looked at it.  "I'm going to call the service man today.  The griddle is hot on one side but Dave and I cannot get it over 250 degrees on the other."

Dave is either the worst cook in town and his boss is covering for him, or the griddle is really defective. 

But only one case explains why a cook would serve sloppy bread and call it "French Toast."  You be the judge.

I'm surprised that they actually came to your door to examine the offending non-French Toast. Keep the campaign going, maybe the griddle will get fixed AND Dave will improve. You can't aim too high! Margo

I agree with Robin. I buy some toaster waffles with chocolate chips and they are sooo good. I toast them twice to make them a little crispy and don't even put anything on them. Good luck, Paula

I THOUGHT MAYBE YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF WITH THE NEW GUY BUT MAYBE NOT.  EVEN A 5 YEAR OLD CAN MANAGE FRENCH TOAST!  BUT WHY BRING THEM WITH YOU IF THEY WERE HORRIBLE CHUCK?  OH MAYBE FOR EVIDENCE!!!!!! :-)  LOVE CHATTING WITH YOU !!!!!

Jeeze...maybe the head chef should do breakfast and leave dinner to the other guy.
