Companies That (Still) Suck and Movie Reviews

First, special venom today for Winn-Dixie (previous post) for case 790762 which on 3-3 and 3-11 they promised me a reply from their “District Office” and which hasn’t happened. At least we know why they’ve been bankrupt once already.

Second, even more venom for Tony Roma’s (previous post) which still hasn’t replied about my issue from 4-16-08, 4-24-08, and 5-23-08. Hell, it’s been a YEAR and they haven’t given me the promised response. Apparently “Karen Weinberger” who is going to call me is a bit behind. I haven’t eaten there since.

And I and am mystified why Rock Beach Grill hasn’t checked on their company’s name. It’s always good to Google your company’s name. When a complaint appears above your own company’s page, it’s good for the complainer’s page and not so much for your own. Some companies must love negative publicity.

The day started with the typical OPH breakfast, followed by skating. We went skating at Pines though “skating” is a relative word as the chillers were broken and the ice was the consistency of a Slurpee, and we were making Bow-Wakes at the far end due to the 1/4″ of standing water. Still, we had fun and got our exercise in. Johnny and Liz didn’t join us for the movie and lunch.

Next up, we saw Monsters vs Aliens. Was more excited about seeing trailers for Wild Things, Ice Age 3, Star Trek, and Up than I ended up about the movie. The movie wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good, it was just sort of there. It was funny — much like the second Shrek — but I didn’t actually GET anything out of it. Ice Age 3 will be much like that, too, but I’ll go just for a dose of Skrat. Star Trek looks abominable and dropped so far down my “must see” list that it isn’t there anymore. Wild Things is at the very top of that list now. Up looks amusing.

Today’s Cracker Barrel experience was typical. We all had fun, but the service at the Davie branch is always sub-part. The wait today was especially atrocious — we planned on a late lunch and ended up with dinner. We had a party of 8, and there were people who arrived, were seated, ate, and left before we were seated. But the food was passable, and we didn’t go for a dining experience. I bought Bottle Caps candy on the way out: FLASHBACK. They no longer have lemon-lime flavour though 🙁

Shane and Lizzie wore me out. Wow. What a long, rough day.
