Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Who has ever come across a "Jobsworth" in civvy street?

    My story concerns a Little Chef restaurant, where I was having brekkie. The place was very busy, and a guy came and sat on one of the few vacant seats, which happened to be on the table next to mine. When the waiter eventually came to take his order, the conversation went something like this :
    Customer : I'll have a plain omlette, and some tea please.
    Waiter : We haven't got any omlettes Sir.
    Customer : No omlettes? Why's that then?
    Waiter : We've run out. What would you like instead?
    Customer : I don't want anything else, I want an omlette!
    Waiter : I told you Sir, we haven't got any omlettes.
    Customer : What? This is Little Chef, and you haven't got any eggs?
    Waiter : Oh yes Sir, we've got eggs, but we haven't got omlettes.
    Customer : (Incredulous voice now reaching stage volume) But omlettes
    are made from eggs, so why can't I have one?
    Waiter : We're not allowed to make omlettes from eggs Sir. Our omlettes
    are frozen, then microwaved. It'd be more than my job's worth
    to make one from eggs!

    Little Chef - where customer service comes ........... err ........... ???
     
  2. Was he an ex chef by any chance?
     
  3. Maybe they should change their name from Little Chef to No Chef?
     
  4. You ain't far wrong there matey - the Little Chef chain is closing lots of places these days in Kent.
     
  5. According to today's SCUM, Jamie Oliver is preparing a £20 million bid for the ailing motorway grub chain "so he can revamp it's greasy spoon menu". Oh well, another establishment to avoid then....

  7. PMSL, Billy - sheer class !!
     
  8. My other half is a transport manager for a big food distribution service. And the shite that some places order is shocking. The omelette thing I already knew about, but they also deliver frozen ready-made mashed potato, ready peeled eggs for salads and even ice.

    I know a lot of people don't like Jamie Oliver, but at least he can cook a bloody omelette!
