Getting Shafted

I love the entertainment book. I really do. However....

I fucking hate places that get technical with their offers. Trace and I went to the Basement in Nedlands for lunch today. We ordered a $18 pizza, and a $18 burger.

Upon presenting the voucher, we were told that it is only valid for main meals. I had another look at the menu, and found that the main meals were listed in the last quarter of the page. What sort of place does not consider a $18 pizza a main meal?

This has happened to us a couple of times now. It confuses me, because the entertainment book is supposed to be a great way to get new people into your restaurant. Why do some restaurants insist in making people feel like idiots by refusing the vouchers? It just does not make any business sense to me. Not only will we never eat there as a result, I am here writing about it. Is that the sort of reaction they want?

as much as I sympathise with you, how come you didn't show the coupon before ordering. I know you don't have to, but most of the time you'll find that your assumptions to theirs are different.

that's why no matter what coupon you have, always ask how it works etc. cause these douche bags like to take peoples money.

I always avoid showing places the voucher until I actually have to. I don't want the fact that I'm getting a free meal to effect the service I get from places. I wont to be just another paying client.

There is no reason for these people to know I'm a cheapskate until I have to pay them :-)

I must simply learn to assess the vouchers more carefully, since some people treat their customers like Tiger Airway passengers.
