When Did I Become Thirty?

I hate immigrants who open restaurants and then can't speak English when they answer the phone.

I called this place, Elia's Pizza Cafe, for dinner, cause I didn't feel like going to the cafeteria. So I call and I place my order, and I wait, and I wait, and I wait...

I waited for an hour, and I called them back. The first guy I talk to apparently doesn't understand the sentence, "I called and placed an order an hour ago" so tries entering in another order. I said, "No, I already placed an order, I was wondering if it went out yet." He says hold on like three times then puts someone else on the phone.

This is the fun part...

This new guy yells at me because apparently I didn't give the room number (which I wasn't asked for) or the extension (Which I don't have, and I gave them the correct phone number). So I gave him that information, and he's still yelling, and he gets all accusatory and says, "So if I call this number, I get you?" and I said, "Yeah!"

So I waited for another fifteen minutes and I get a call, and I go downstairs and it's another five minutes until the guy shows up. Then he makes sure I understand that this is the second time he's been here. I, for SOME reason I don't fully understand now, gave him a tip (DUMB) of $1.50 and he looks at me all incredulous and gets pissed. I thought to say, "Be glad you're getting a tip at all" but he was already sighing his way out the door by this point.

It doesn't need saying, but I won't be ordering from there again, which is a shame considering that the chicken wasn't that bad, and the pizza probably would have been good had it been fresh-cooked.

I'll definitely ordering something after 24, stupid restaurant...
