Wingfield Arms Nightmare
Wingfield Arms, Montford Bridge, Shropshire
I'm writing personal today. England's at it again. I never cease to be shocked at how rude people have become in Britain these days. After five years away living amongst a very cultured people, it stands out a mile.
We had a rotten experience at lunch today. Very rude owner. not impressed. She should take a lesson in how to handle customers, take her time and speak in words that might be comprehensible. She walked over, grabbed my three year old's toys from the floor next to our table, where he was playing contendedly and quietly, and crashed them on the table in front of Shane, and walked off. We were both so shocked. Having no idea who the person was, we just sat open-mouthed.
Shane was then spoken to very rudely in the C.R., which had been left in poor condition by an earlier visitor. Presumably the verbal assailant was another guest of the establishment. Mind you, it could be a case of the sign you see in some places - 'If you think the waitress is rude, you should see the manager'!
Even toilet behaviour seems to have collapsed in Britain, along with basic manners.
MY MAIN THOUGHT - Why pretend to run a family friendly pub, when you clearly are not family friendly at all? I don't think I'll be calling in again. The big sign hanging outside the pub saying 'Families Welcome' needs adjusting. Just add the word 'NOT'.
Back to politics.
