RE: Mel's Diner(FL)closes 2 locations
Lee it probably depends on which came first the chicken or the eggs (over light,
with home fries and bacon). I wonder who recommended the renovations that cost
sooooo much ? Probably the owners son, a Harvard Grad in business administration.
Reminds me of the story of the hot dog stand owner in New Jersey. Had a great
location and did well enough to send his son to college.
After the first year the kid came home and told his father he had better cut back
on buying and services because of the depression. So papa took junior's advise,
after all he was a smart college educated young man. So he shortened his hours,
gave a little less kraut with the dog and sure enough in no time at all business
was so lousy he had to quit. But he was amazed how smart his kid was to predict
the whole thing after only one year.
As Confusious once said "Anyone who listens to a college kid should retire to the
farm and grow Bay Corn". That was Irving Confusious, Far Rockaway High School
class of '33.
