Just my perception although, as I try to with every post I reply to, I did read your reply thoroughly. I also understood completely that you were not trying to "justify" the action or policy yet......by presenting the "other-side" or a possible speculation of it, it did appear to promote an argument for an understanding of why it was done. Like I said and IMHPO, the policy, either stated or implemented, doesn't belong in the proper scheme of things.
Yes I have been around for a while there is no disputing that but how did you get the perception that I was "unaware of the simple fact that there are a lot of people in the hospitality industries that shouldn't be." That couldn't be further from the reality of things. I am or have been aware, and quite painfully at times, that there are a good many people working with-in the hospitality industry that do not belong there. I have certainly experienced more than my fair share. I once was sickened by the way they did things but then realized that I was just a small cog in the continually breaking down machine that I was attached to. Although I never threw my hands up in the air, I have been a casualty and lost a job or position on more than one occasion based on the Principle of things. I will certainly starve in a principle and avoid feasting on complacency! Again IMHPO, I would like to add that there are also a good many people that are associated with and around the hospitality industry that do not belong as well. Either as purveyors, writers, critics, teachers, etc, etc, etc not to mention the countless numbers of guests that seem to be out to abuse the system, servers and the customer service policies plus remain ignorant to the actual idea behind things.
There is much I'd like to change but I'm not in charge today.:rolleyes:
