Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
Greeting's Bubba4289 I am very pleased that you were able to get some good rhythm from the owner of that joint...and I admire that you brought it to her... best of luck
Regardless of what the owner has told you, if the bad tempered waitress has decided to dislike you
and is still there .....
there is a lot of things which can happen, hypothetically, to your food before it gets in front of you on the table.
I'd still take my business elsewhere.
$60 x 52 weeks is $3120 a year.
Honestly I just threw out a number when I was talking to her. I wish I would have done the math so it would seemed like an even larger amount, however the outcome would have been the same.
Anyways, were just going to find another place. Even though the situation has been handled I don't want a side of spit, or worse, with every meal that I order.
There is a certain satisfied smugness in being out and about, doing things with one's side arm concealed, yet available.
One may legally breeze past silly non-compliant signage, hostile attitudes, annoyingly prying officers, and the startled stares of the clueless.
No one has to know.

I think If it wasmyself I too would have asked for a Mgr. and gotten the final word from them. If they aske me to leave as well I would respect their wishes and be on my way.
These two statements are fatally at odds with one another. If the first statement is true than the answer to the second is obvious.I know that they are with in their rights to do so. My question is can they play favorites and choose who can stay?
Why give your money to people that don't appreciate your business is the larger question I have?
ETA: Good on you for getting the issue straightened out with the owner. As a personal rule, I don't patronize businesses that have issues with openly armed citizens and I recommend you do the same. If nothing else, you can enjoy your meal in peace without nanny-state waitresses giving you the business as if they own the place.
