Weird Restaurant Stories 12/11

Another week has come and gone.  That means it is Saturday and time to count down this week’s strangest restaurant stories.  This week is a little more special than most because I am writing up this list 35 years to the day after my Mother struggled through giving birth to me.  I was already pretty unappreciative then.  I mean I got to lay around naked and warm all day while someone fed me.  Little did I know that 35 years later I would be writing about restaurant robberies and indecent exposure.

It seems this column always ends up with a focus on crime.  I can only expect that to become more common as the holidays approach and crime rates rise.  This week’s stories are not only about crime, but the general stupidity of those who commit it.  These people pictured themselves as modern day D.B. Coopers only to find themselves caught.  A word to all criminals: If you are not smart enough to talk yourself out of robbing a restaurant, you are probably not smart enough to get away with it.  When you are caught, you can count on me to enjoy mocking you in the hours I am not working hard at an actual job.

As I perused this week’s restaurant stories, one thing became very clear.  It was an incredibly bad week for restaurant managers.  Several of this week’s stories contain the “manager’s behaving badly” meme.  There are also some great follow up stories that will sound familiar to long time readers of this column.  All of which have been painstakingly compiled for your weekend reading enjoyment.

Welcome to a very spooky Halloween installment of weird restaurant stories.  How was that for a cliché introduction?  I am going to attempt to avoid clichés in this post.  That means no reporting of haunted restaurants or robber wearing Halloween masks.  To avoid the clichés even further this will be the first ever violence free version of weird restaurant stories.  Which allows me to say, “no restaurant employees were harmed during the writing of these stories.”

Welcome to the first ever bonus edition of Weird Restaurant Stories.  This week I am going to try something a little different.  The difficulty I have each week in compiling this list is eliminating those last few stories.  This week several of the stories I wanted to eliminate all fit into the same theme.  So this week’s dozen stories is actually a dozen and a half.  Bonus.

The reason I limit it to 12 is that this is actually one of the more time consuming posts I write during the week.  Coming up with even slightly funny lines about more than 12 stories would be a bit cumbersome.  That is why this week in order to accommodate the bonus stories I have decided on a speed round of stories all sharing a similar theme.  We have all heard the phrase, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”  This week I decided to test that theory.  I may have some better variations.  Judge for yourself.

Welcome back to another week of strange restaurant stories from around the country.  I have been writing this column for several weeks now.  Those of you who read it every week have already started picking up on trends.  This week we have our first follow up story.  We also have what I think qualifies as the strangest story yet.  As a bonus this week I am introducing two new awards.  I have decided to name them after characters from past posts on this blog and am allowing you to choose if they become weekly features.

Enough with the intro, let’s get to some stories.

“In the restaurant industries’ war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the reporters of local newspapers. These are their stories.”  *dun dun*

Generally, I try to find some oddball stories during the course of the week to make you all chuckle on Saturdays.  I tend to read stories on Friday afternoon and then return on Saturday to write them up.  Today’s post is a little bit different.  The first reason is the fourteen-hour shift I pulled yesterday at The Plaza Art Fair.  The second is that around the country people seem to be a little more off their rocker than normal this week.  Not in the comedic way, but in the shooting people who are enjoying their egg drop soup way.  This week has a particularly “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” feel to it.  I don’t make the news, I simply report on it.  Luckily, there are still enough boneheads out there to bring us some comic relief at the end.
