I would like to take this opportunity to chat to you about your “greeters” or “PRs” or “Front of House Staff” or whatever term you use. Personally, I call them nuisances. And this is the polite term. I would like to make some suggestions on how NOT to lure me into your restaurant
Chase me down the road
Lay your hands on me
Bully me or harass me, or insult me in your language. I know from the tone if not the actual words.
Continue talking after I’ve politely said “no thanks”
Tell me that I won’t be disappointed. You are setting me up to be disappointed.
Promise me free stuff. Let the free stuff be a surprise
Tell me that you offer the best Mexican food in Tenerife whilst wearing a sombrero and waving around a stuffed donkey. I immediately do not trust you
Tell me that you offer the best anything in Tenerife. Let me be the judge of that.
Have pictures of your food outside
Have a large blackboard offering a full English breakfast or Sunday roast. I am in Tenerife. Give me tapas, paella and fresh seafood
Be McDonald’s or Burger King or Subway
Treat me like an adult who can read a menu and make my own decision about where and what i eat. Simple.
Yours, most respectfully
Mrs A Brummie Home and Abroad
