Another Sick Sunday

Yesterday was pretty good. Did not find the boys party supplies or any Eastery looking clothes.

We did make it to Aldi and to eat with our friends that have b/g twins (one day older than the boys). It was a nightmare. We went to O'Charley's. Our first time there. Waited 45 minutes to be seated. Got our appetizer before we got our drinks or bread. Finally got our drinks 15 minutes later. Our food came 45 minutes after the drinks (water, milk and sweeet tea). The kids were miserable and so were us adults. The thing was that the seating was only half full. The place was NOT crowded at ALL!!! Our friend (the twins Mom) is diabetic, she had to give herself insulin at the table and ask for bread or crackers. She was getting sick. Well, that didn't help. We both spoke to the manager, the assistant manager and the kitchen manager. We all still had to pay full price for our meals and all. We had to ask repeatedly for refills, never did get any extra napkins, after one basket of bread that was all we got. One of the entrees was fixed incorrectly and never redone. We were there for 2 1/2 hours!!!! WE paid with cash and our friends paid with a debit card. Come to find out our waitor was a work release inmate and that was his first night on the floor as he told it. Lord help us. Needless to say our friends were a little upset that they had just nhanded their debit card to a newly released parolee!!! We finally made it out of the place and said our goodbyes. Changed the kiddos diapers, loaded up and hubby says, "I don't feel so good"! Great! We make it across the street to Milos's. He runs inside and to the restroom. He is so sick!!!! He comes out and sits in the SUV for a few minutes and back in he goes.......sick again. He finally is feeling better 20 minutes later, so we start on the hours drive home. I happened to have a couple of Pepcid in my purse and he took those. I will be contacting their corporate headquarters tomorrow if still alive!!!! Smile.......

We were told that kids eat free everyday, allday. Does that really make it okay? I think not!!!!

Get home and I do not feel well. By 9pm I had a fever, the chills, coughing, sore throat, earache, headache and plain yuckiness! Not related to the other incident of course. I stayed home from church and the boys are nursing me back to health.......another funny! Hubby went to church and is stopping to see his Mom on the way back home. She is just getting worse everyday.

My Daddy is scheduled to have eyesurgery in the am at 8. Please send prayers up for him. I hope you all are well and have a wonderful Sunday!!!!!!! Many blessings!!!

Oh, my, what a horrible dinner date! I enjoy eating at O'Charley's, and we have never had a problem. I hope you and your husband didn't get food poisoning on top of everything else. How awful!

Oh Marva.....sounds like a rotten evening.....I'm so sorry! That's really awful that the restaurant did nothing for you and your friends after the terrible service you received. I hope you get somewhere with the corporate office. Hope you and hubby are feeling better today! Sending prayers for all of you (mil and daddy too).....hugs.....Ellie

Wow, I know that 2 yr. olds don't eat much! I'm sorry that you had a bad day. I would definitely call their corporate office and complain. You really deserve to be compensated for that awful dining experience. I know that I won't stand for poor service or poor food. It's our right to complain, after all, we are the ones paying! Good luck and keep us posted.

Marva will pray for you that he will heal the sick. Hope you feel better. I had the stomach virus Wednesday and Thursday and felt better on Friday. I will keep you Dad in my prayers tonight for his eye surgery.

Hugs
