To the people of PDX in the restaurant (see: SERVICE) industry,
If you can't muster a smile, pour glasses of water, set tables with napkins and silverware, serve food and drinks without attitude, remember orders, learn how to buy enough stock without forcing your wait staff to unapologetically bark "Yeah, we're out of that...", keep the business hours you promise on your door, maintain/update your website, keep a clean establishement, at least feign enjoying people and your job... then perhaps you should consider quitting. Portland has become famous for bad service in restaurants and this is not something anyone should aspire to. Consider this some sage advice, assholes.
