Big Bad Bubbas BBQ in Merced dissapointing

So, last night was my lovely wife’s birthday, and she invited the whole family to meet at Big Bad Bubba’s BBQ in downtown Merced.

This place has a lot going for it. There is a mechanical bull that the guests can ride, a cool indoor tree house, and an otherwise great theme that could really work out.

Unfortunately, there is a lot going wrong there as well. On Wednesday my lovely wife had called and made a reservation for our party (of nine people). When we got there last night, they stated they did not take reservations. I explained that this was not the case on Wednesday, and on further investigation on the hostess’ clipboard she did discover a “party of nine with no name”. However, “this was not a reservation, as they did not take reservations”. I replied that this was not explained when the telephone call was made, and that whoever did answer the phone on Wednesday gave no hint at this policy as he politely took down our details. I suggested that perhaps this individual should not be allowed to answer the phone in the future if he did not know the restaurant policy.

Bad Day

I rear ended a car this morning, I could tell it was going to be a really bad day!

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a dwarf. He looked up at me and said “I am NOT happy!”

So I said, “Well, which one are you then?”

That’s when the fight started.
