More Condiments Conundrum

Mar 8 | By CaptainPFB | Views: 795 | Comments: 24
So this time I'm at Mooon Cafe. You know, that sorta kinda Mexican themed place with the sirloin rolled into a medallion and listed on the menu as "Filet Mignon" for about 320p.


It's actually not bad, if you want a decent sirloin that isn't akin to eating a bicycle tire like in most places in Philippines that serves "steak". They may be fooling their fellow dumbfuck Filipinos into thinking it's really a filet mignon, but they don't fool me or anyone who's ever had a real filet mignon. At least they don't charge as if it were a real filet mignon. 


So when I want a quick decent sirloin steak disguised as a filet mignon, I go to Mooon Cafe. 


And it's usually a pretty pleasant experience. But certainly it can't go without some little dumbfuckery. And I never expect an outing to be without some degree of dumbfuckery. I would kind of feel like I was in the Twilight Zone if something went without someone dumbshitting all over him or herself in The Philippines.


So my "Filet Mignon" arrives, and as usual, I reach for the A1 Sauce. Give it a shake, remove the cap and tilt........Nothing. It's hard to tell if anything is in those little table bottles, because they're so heavy, you really don't know if they're full or empty. 


No problem. I motion for the server who stands watching for me if I need anything, and she quickly scurries to my table. "The bottle is empty, may I have another please?" 


"Certainly sir". And she turns around and grabs one off another table and sets it in front of me. I smile, "thank you". She nods and smiles, and scurries off back to her place to watch me from a distance again. 


Shake shake shake, cap off, tilt......NOTHING. 


Hand goes up again and she quicky returns. "This one's empty too".


"Oh I'm sorry sir, I'll find you a full one right away."


And off she goes on a quest for a bottle of A1 with some sauce in it. I watch as she goes from table to table, shaking, opening tilting it into her hand to have nothing come out. One after the other. She's gone to just about every table now, and I'm holding back the laughter because she's putting the caps back on and setting them right back down on the tables. 


By this time, my steak has gone from barely luke warm when it arrived, to stone cold. I'm getting a little unnerved. I ask for the manager. 


Here comes Mr. DoNothingButPretendToLookImportant to my table. I explain what I just witnessed, and asked him why, as the manager, you allow the staff to let all the A1 bottles to go empty on the tables?




"Well sir, not their fault. Bottle made of bery dark glass. Can't see bottle empty!" 


"Ah I see! So it's not YOUR fault, neither is it THE WORKER'S fault. It's the BOTTLE'S fault, yes?" I replied.


Yes sir. 


What a complete dumbfuck.

You'd figure with all their degrees that they'd know something about nutrition and a balanced diet. From what I saw at schools they don't know how to tie their shoe laces. Give em all velcro shoes.

I had a 31 Year Old Member of Staff ask me how to 'Tie a Tie!' They only use Preformed Ties!

Elementary and Secondary Education is a Scandal! My Business Partner's Sister has 4 Sons - None of them can work out the 'Change' from 100 Pesos!

So they can't tell if the A! bottle is empty because of the brown glass huh? Well, that just solved one of life's mysteries about the philippines for me. Now I know why Tanduay, Empordor and other rums come in clear glass bottles. But they must really be confused with the brown liter bottles of Red Horse.So they can't tell if the A! bottle is empty because of the brown glass huh?

The education system here is a fantasy. It doesn't exist.

MM, I disagree about the education system being non existent. It does exist but like everything else in this country it is a complete failure.

Filipino thinking: If we make it round like a Filet Mignon, it's a Filet Mignon.

Ming, how can they learn anything from schools and colleges when half of the curricula are devoted to singing, dancing, drama and field trips!! That's why they are better at wriggling their asses, but they can't tie their shoelaces!!
