Meal is unsatisfactory

A visitor to Port McNeill was left unhappy with the service.

Dear editor,

I wanted to write about the most horrible experience in my life, where I went to Gus’s Bar and Grill in Port McNeill.

After I made an order I asked the server to include toast instead of a bun. She wasn’t too happy about that and wouldn’t ask the kitchen to make the change. She said if I don’t like it I can leave. Meanwhile, my family was outside waiting when the lady blew up on me and I blew up on her. It got to a point where this guy came out of nowhere, started to get involved and said if I don’t leave they’ll call the cops, which they did.

Wow. Welcome to Port McNeill.

I’ve looked at other blogs and found Trip Advisor. I guess I wasn’t the only one treated like crap. I am a businessman, not looking for a fight. I have two companies, one based out of Vancouver and one on the North Island, and I deal with customers everyday.

When somebody from a company challenges me to a fight, I just don’t get it.

When I walked outside I saw the server again; her three children were outside playing around the cars until she called them over. I thought people left their kids at home; I guess it’s different on the North Island, servers bringing kids to work.

I hope other people and some of my business partners don’t experience the same thing that I did with my girlfriend and her son. I will let all my friends know, and all my customers.
