Papa Roach

I transferred to a new office today. So far I am loving the new office. Work schedule is from 8:30am-6:30pm. I was at the office by 8:25am. Minutes after I got to work I felt that I needed to pee. I run off to the restroom but it was locked. I found out that we couldn't use the restroom til 10am and no one had keys to the restroom. Mind over matter is what I kept reminding myself. Minute after minute I was slowly thinking that this was definitely mind over matter. Hopity hop hop is what I did to keep myself from peeing. So anyhow, my prayers were answered because I found one restroom that was open. Despite it looking a bit dirty I went ahead and peeeeeed.

Ok, I know you guys don't wanna read about me wanting to pee so bad. Lol. Sorry about that. So anyhow, lunch time came and my aunt was in the area with her two other friends. She invited me to have lunch with them at one of our favorite buffet restaurants. The restaurant served smoked salmon belly and it was to die for. As I came to get seconds for the smoked salmon, I noticed one of the pieces on the buffet table had some strange burnt looking brown thing. I came closer and I was so surprised at what I had found. The burnt thing was actually a cockroach! Ewwwww!!!! I called the waiter's reaction and was so disappointed with his reaction. He told me I must have been mistaken, so I showed him the cockroach and he said, "ok, we will just remove this dish from the selection" , then he stomped away.No apologies, no anything, nothing special. I thought it was a given that if you disappoint a customer you should always try to make it up to them. I don't know which was sadder, the fact that there was a cockroach that clung to the salmon belly or this waiter's customer service.

That's crazy! A restaurant should go out of their way to make up for something gross like that--they should have cancelled your bill and apologized like mad. Then you would be telling everyone how the restaurant wants everything to be perfect for the customers. Instead, now the story is that they don't care if there are roaches in their food. Yuck!!!

PS - In one of my offices, they kept the bathroom doors locked for security. We had to get a key from the receptionist. The men got tired of that, so we started unlocking the door ourselves. The women complained (about the men's room being unlocked???), but we kept doing it anyway. When you gotta go...

That is crazy that you couldn't get into the restroom.

But I'm glad you are loving your new office.

1) What the hell, you can't pee until 10am? Do you have to raise your hand and ask permission, too?

2) Gross. Just...gross.

Being comfortable in office is important if not you won't work at your best effort, right ?

To me it sounds like from his reaction that it happens often there.

Wow. And drinking coffee in the morning doesn't help either.

Apparently the cockroach agreed that the salmon belly is to die for.

Oh my gawd, I am not a picky eater but I probably would have thrown up after I found a roach in the food... sick!
