What Are We Waiting For?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

In LineHave you ever thought you had things under total control only to find out you just made yourself look like a total idiot to family, friends, or a client?

It happens to the best of us. This story may make you feel better if you are down on yourself for a BIG gaff.

Last night I attended our annual Youth For Christ banquet that was catered by a local restaurant who has a sterling reputation because they always do an excellent job.

There were about 1,000 people in attendance and the caterer had set up 3 serving lines to ensure speedy service. Each line was well stocked and well staffed.

Once the banquet was official called to order instructions were given as to which tables should head to which line and like most events people didn't need to be told twice, we swarmed the food servers.

As the servers grabbed the serving utensils it became evident that there was a problem... the caterer forgot the plates!

Ooooops!  Lately I'm seeing supply chain issues.  Liz loves Dunkin Donuts unsweetened ice tea, but our local branch was out for a botu a week.  And now McDonalds has an issue with their burritos not being available.  I'm assuming it's a tortilla supply issue since we know they have eggs and cheese!  :)  Bill

Those are some big gaffs by some big players Bill Liz and Bill Spear . We all make then, hopefully not in front of a thousand or more clients.

Oh my!  Where they able to rectify the problem quickly?  Or was it sandwiches all around?

Oh wow! That must have been "interesting," Bob. That's not a small "mistake," by any means.

Hi Bob - definitely an oops moment. We used to call such culinary-related mishaps a Flintstone opportunity.   Dine as if it was in the Stone Age.  Wilma!

Raymond Henson being a smaller city does have it's advantages. They were there with-in 15 minutes and being it was a Christian gathering I didn't even hear any grumbling.

People took it amazingly well Nina Hollander . I assume it was because most of us know that this is NOT standard for the caterer.

Grant Schneider I'm glad my major flubs were in front of less than 1,000 people but with today's social media we are in front of thousands of people every day aren't we?
