Weird Restaurant Stories 10/23

2 Comments

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.

Story Time: Injuries

From the statistics I get through WordPress, I can tell that about half my traffic comes from search engines.  Which is cool and I enjoy seeing what people search for to end up at my blog.  The other half is people who came here via a link someone posted or have the page bookmarked.  For the second group, I have been trying to think of some way to make this blog more interactive.  I try to ask at the end of most posts for feedback and don’t get many takers.  The thing is that I know many of you have far more interesting takes on any number of the topics discussed in this blog.  So today I am going to try a new feature called “Story Time.”

The idea of Story Time is that everyone has a story to tell about certain topics.  They are the stories that get pulled out after work at the bar or in side stations while waiting for a table.  I have a favorite story for most of these topics.  I am sure you do too.  So just pretend that you are sitting around a high top sipping a cool beverage and tell your tale in the comments section.

Today’s topic is workplace injuries.  A coworker who hurt himself inspired it.  He looked over at me while doing his checkout and said, “You know what you oughta write about on your blog thing is getting hurt at work.”  I wasn’t sure what angle to take on that issue.  For the record I am opposed to getting hurt at work.  Please don’t do it.  If you do get hurt though could you possibly do it in a really funny way?
