So, I ordered over the phone.  When I showed up, it was a mad house, the hostess at the counter was rude and took 15 minutes to get my pizza that was literally two feet from her.  Also somehow they managed to fucking burn the pizza.  Not just the crust, but the top too.  There were big spots on 1/3 the pizza that didn't have sauce on top.  WTF.

The service industry ain't performing too well as of late it seems like.

I went to my favorite place and they served me an off menu provel pizza. Said something about "sant luces" or something. Was nasty but I acted like it was good as it was off menu.

Let's not taint the whole service industry with a broad brush here, guys. The Chili Chack took good care of its customers over the holidays. On New Year's Eve we had a party of 15 come in. They had originally made a reservation for 9 persons, but they met some more people on the way in. What's more, they asked for separate checks, which is no easy task for our staff. (We don't have a POS system because we prefer to maintain traditional values.) But we managed with the kind of grace and professionalism that you would expect at your fancy five-star restaurants like they have in Europe or Wales. (I won't lie, it certainly helped that all 15 ordered the same meal, which was Mangwich wash it down with a Bud Light.)

For some reason I always envisioned the Chili Chack as a place where you ordered at the counter so splitting orders would be no problem. Then you get a little thing with a number and they bring it to your table.

tbh, i assumed there was sawdust and wood chips mulching the floor.

No sirree, diners at The Chili Chack are escorted to their tables by a hostess. Then before too long a waiter arrives and takes their orders by voice. The tables are even festooned with tablecloths that are not in gingham pattern.

my vision of the Chili Chack was of a line of cramping diners waiting to get into the toilets.

I have just run out of Oreos.

Looks like Don Lemonds made a inappropriate remark about Kathy Griffiths on New Year's Eve which he shouldn't of made now he is being talked about on social media.

I didn't see it, but Lemonds is the "black hole" guy. So it's entirely conceivable he said something really retarded.

I have this bad habit where I think out loud and share my train of thought all the time. I should probably stop doing that.

I like deep dish - try it as least just to see

There's some twat that keeps playing stupid 3 or 4 second clips of songs in a loop for 30 or 90 minutes late at night. The clips themselves being short are incoherent things (like Heartbreaker and some techno music - the current choose of this twat). Today it started at 2a and is going strong at 6a. No one can find this jerk and the property manager is out until tmrw. I've had to suffer through this since like Dec 20th since I didn't leave town.
