    Waffle House Encounter

    Went to the local Waffle House Saturday morning for breakfast before going to work. I go inside and its like a mad house. There were a group of young guys and girls in their late twenties hooping and hollering it up after a night of drinking and who knows what else. The noise and loud talk didn't bother me until they started cussing like truckers. There were some families with kids there and I can't imagine they weren't upset. What upset me was that the mgr. wouldn't say anything to them. He could have went to them, not made a scene and told them to settle down but didn't. My question is, would you have said anything to them ?

    I would have left. Don't you notice what crap happens at Waffle Houses across the nation? I sure wouldn't tell a bunch of drunken young men and women to "settle down".

    I would have asked them to watch their language. I've actually did a similar thing at a McD's.

    Best course of action, people acting in such a manner will consider it an insult to be told they are too loud and will become combative. It is just not worth the trouble.

    I would have walked out and told the manager why.

    Twenty-somethings like that have been taught that they don't have to answer to anyone. They even get miffed when cops tell them what to do, So, do you really think they're gonna give a flip about what you think? Best thing is just leave and email a note to the corporate email telling them why you won't frequent their "family" restaurant anymore.

    Very good advice in these responses. On my best days, I am able to heed it.

    Leave. My concern would be them waiting outside to jump you when you left, and there you are with your family caught in the middle. Not worth it, just leave.

    Generally I'd agree with you 100 % but it's kinda hard to paint verbally rowdy/disorderly 21 year old's as EVIL.

    How about this one:

    "Choose your battles carefully."

    This is more so important when one CCs.

    That to me at a Cincinnati Reds game. I said something. I won't go back the parks and organizations have lost sight of who the fans are.

    I'd of gone back to my truck, grabbed my 12 gauge pump shotgun and gone back in. Screamed at them to "LISTEN UP" as I racked a round into the chamber. If they hadn't quieted down by then, I'd of fired a round into the ceiling to get their attention!


    Seriously though. As Spirit51 said. Get up and leave. It's the managers problem, not yours.
