Minging old farts and Entitleitis

"...Nine party-goers dined for lunch at Robbie's Bar and Bistro to celebrate a Nelson woman's 70th birthday. The celebration turned to disbelief when they where told they could not bring in the birthday cake, baked as a present, without a $12 "cutting fee".

"I couldn't believe it," cake-baker June Thompson said. "I was actually gutted because I thought, 'that's a heck of a charge on top of making the cake'..."


Hello?

Ever here of corkage for BYO- same thing.

A perfectly reasonable charge for staff's time for serving, cleaning plates and forks and more importantly- for the use of the venue.

Less than $1.50 a head is a 'heck of a charge'?

Stick to stewed tea and stale biscuits in one of your unheated state houses!

They could have called ahead, instead of assuming that old people's parties are universally loved and respected.

No you weren't you idiot! Or you'd be dead! "Actually gutted": Where did these twats go to school?
