My personal beef!
I used to frequent a great Q place in Maine, and they had the DINER type napkin holders, and being such a regular patron and friend with the owners and employees, I asked about such crappy little napkins.
I offered a suggestion about paper towels in a holder on the table, and they said, that it was less cost effective.. For THEM.. to use the little tiny napkins, albeit that you used many of them, for them to use the regular dinner napkins.
I was NOT impressed, nor satisfied with the answer.
I felt like I was using more of them, than the regular large heavier weight dinner napkins.
Now at my work, We have those stupid little diner sized napkin holders, and I have to fill them 3 times as often and more than I would if we had a regular size napkin.
I have often mentioned to my boss, that McDonalds has better napkins than we do, and I get the shrug..
Oh well, It isnt my restaurant, but I am trying to save my boss some money in the long run.
I hate those napkins.. He probably hates them too, but likes the diner look of the holders.
Oh well, I guess he has money to burn.
And yeah.. He does.
I have tried to cut corners for him, but after all, it is his money, and apparently he doesnt give a crap if I try to help him save money.
Oh well.. they love me and I love my bosses..
I tried and if that is what they want, then it isnt my place to try to change what he likes.
I HATE CRAPPY CHEESY NAPKINS>
I dont care what type of establishment you have, it is the wrong impression.
Oh well. Like I said..
Aint my place and no use bitching about what I have to give my patrons
