As a bartender it is your job to make the customer feel welcomed and appreciated. If you do not like people don't work in a bar. This horrible customer service and appreciation seems to be a Portland thing. Much like the icecreamtenders that don't like kids (salt and straw). We pick our bars by the amenities and the service. I, Anonymous found what he thought was a perfect watering hole, booze and conversation. You would think that someone who took the time to learn sign language had a reason to do so and therefore would have a little more compassion. If you don't have time to talk let the customer know you're busy I'm sure they'll understand.
JDowdy is angry because somebody called adult females "girls". Surprising she doesn't also chastise the Merc for not using the "wymyn" spelling.
I've never heard anyone complain about adult males being called "boys", which of course happens just as often.
Some people's lives are so devoid of meaning that they have to find some way to be a victim so they can go around tilting at windmills. Well, JDowdy, there are plenty of real examples of sexism, so you can still go around being all bitchy to everyone but it would be awesome if you could pick a real thing to nag people about.
gotta remember you are in Portland- land of the douche bag bartenders - I can make a list here- and shitty customer service. Slingshot? BOG? Bridgeport? On and on...
Why are the comments on Dirk's articles closed? I wanted to point out the guy wouldn't have been cited if he'd hit another car. It's got nothing to do with bikes, it's all about Dirk's wrong idea of what the cops are for. The accident he described was property damage - it's a civil matter, and better for the civil courts.
Speak for yourself Kattie!!
I tend bar, and I've done it for over 15 years. If you sit at my bar, that entitles you my attention, and great conversation if you want it. Just because I’m “at work” doesn’t mean that I have the right to be a bitch to you!
“So please just let her do her job tending the bar” There wouldn’t be a fucking need to “tend” the bar, if there weren’t any fucking customers sitting at it!
All I read on Anon, is people bitching about their bartenders. Well no fucking wonder why! If you’re a bartender and this is your shitty attitude, then you deserve every bit of the no tip that’s thrown at you! Your bartenders are your friends. Come to my bar, we’ll prove it!
Okay, y'all need to realize that your bartenders and servers are not your friends. They most likely don't even like you. Bars are places of business, of commerce, where to participate you must ante-up. A tip might buy you a smile and a brief chat of small talk (if it's not busy), but understand, and please respect, that a bartender is held captive to her station (her station being the bar where she is not just hanging out for the fun of it) because she is AT WORK. So please just let her do her job tending the bar because you don't have anything to say a bartender hasn't already heard. You're not interesting. If you were interesting you wouldn't be sitting alone at a bar having to corner people to get them to talk to you. And also, being old and deaf and having the saddest puppy dog eyes doesn't grant anybody license to be an annoying leech.
FashioNXT shows what's next in fashion. Wearable technology is what's next in fashion, and that's what you saw when designer Michelle Lesniak showed the functionality of a smart-eyewear by Brilliant Service....the first interactive demonstration of a smart eyewear in any major runway in the world.
Hope that answers your questions of where FashioNXT is going and what technology was doing in FashioNXT.
Kanye West is fucking retarded, people in Hollywood need to stop paying attention to him and giving him jobs better suited to people with actual talent.
Say Mathew Denney, I did get a kick out of that trial of the girl who was pepper-sprayed in the face!
Sex Butler! Wear black short shorts, a vest, and a bow tie or an ascot. Walk around with condoms, lube, wet naps, rash ointment, etc. on a silver platter. You could be sexy Carson from Downtown Abbey.
and even if you accidentally hit me in the face with your umbrella I am obliged to rip it out of your hands. You are not 36 inches wide. Lift that mother up for oncoming pedestrians.
I was going to suggest Sexy Aquaman, until I realized that Sexy Aquaman is just Namor.
Why isn't Ann Romano on twitter?
catsunicorns if the average homeless person gets $30 a day as you point out, that's over 10k of tax free money a year. if the homeless are making $80-100 a day, that's over 30k of tax free money a year. WHY THE FUCK ARE THEY STILL FUCKING HOMELESS? That is more than the average single mom makes per year. That's about $14 dollars an hour.
This is why it is never going to go away, i get it. Cause if i asked you for 30k of tax free money, and you gave it to me, I would not give it back to you and be like "just kidding".
catsunicorns, please stop describing the money that people give you as something you have "made". It is pretty clear that you do not "make" anything, with the exception of the occasional semi-solid bm.
if this happens again- ask the closest fat person - we will most likely have an extra sandwich for you
I would suggest if begging for money doesn't pay enough, go out there and get a job and pay taxes like the rest of us.
There really are only a few hotspots for panhandlers that aren't in roadways. Besides Powell's/north Park blocks and Pioneer Square area, what other ones are there?
If you work in or around one of the hotspots, of course you think it's a big issue, but few others see it much. I got tired of it too, when I worked near Pioneer Square, but I hated the path-blocking, aggressively friendly canvasser kids far, far more.
God Bless "Ann".
See you tonight Marjorie!
