Just for the record, dear restaurant worker, Ricky was the ONLY owner who had a the City of Columbia hired attorney, named Robert Cooper, to represent them (our tax dollars hard at work!).
But he didn't have to pay $250.

Garnering sympathy by lying will not work.

And now you're changing the subject and making inflammatory statements to cover up the fact that you lied.

Great job, you're really helping the restaurant industry in this city.

<quoted text>wow! i have heard some stupid complaints, but that might be the best! you haven't been in FOR SIX YEARS and yet can criticize me for how the restaurant is run? do you realize that if you never went back to a restaurant that made a mistake you would never have anywhere to eat eventually? i'm not trying to convince anyone about whether or not my restaurants are good or not. but considering we are busy everyday and every night, you are in the MINORITY if you think they are not good places. and as far as how i run the restaurants, once again, if you haven't been in for SIX YEARS, how on earth can you criticize how they run? and why is it that you think that because i am on hear defending myself, and YOUR TAX DOLLARS which are being misused, that it means i am neglecting my restaurants? once again some of you like to believe that someone missing a SINGLE TAX PAYMENT (one in five years) is a sign of mismanagement?? that is utterly absurd. perhaps if I WASN'T SO ACTIVE IN KEEPING THE DAY TO DAY THINGS IN LINE at the restaurants that I would have remembered to mail in the payment. perhaps. but again, it's not about the bill being on time...IT'S ABOUT HAVING TO GO TO COURT AFTER I HAVE PAID THE TAX AND THE LATE FEE. don't act like you've never paid a bill late. it happens to everyone. but it doesn't equate to issues at the restaurants or how i do my job. and if you haven't been in to see us in over 6 years, you are only making yourself look like a complete idiot when you judge me.
why on earth everyone can't take up for each other as fellow columbians is amazing to me? i would do it for you CCbear. but because of one bad experience 6 years ago you can't do the same. that's childish at best. grow up and give me a call when you want to come enjoy a meal sometime in the next 6 years.
I like eating at your restaurant.

You are quite a whiner, faker. Find a real cop.
