Truth in advertising

I went to Long John Silvers tonight. I was craving a good salad and remembered how good their shrimp and seafood salad is. I got to the drive up to place my order. "oh no, we don't have salads" the employee responded. I explained that I was looking right at their menu and it was there plain as day. She said "we only have stuff like that in the summer, I guess we'll have to take that sign down."

She didn't care that I wasn't getting what I wanted, what they were still advertising. She thought it rather odd that I was even asking for it, as if it were MY fault they weren't updating their menus properly.

In my life, there are times I send messages I don't mean to. We all do it. It could be something as simple as refusing to take your calls or return your messages, or dressing inappropriately, or pretending everything's fine when I know that it's not.

I'm not suggesting that I walk around with a cloud over my head on the days that I'm in a bad mood, but what I know is that I need to be more honest in how I'm feeling...and that Long John Silver's needs to fix their menu with or without salads.

    It is truly bizarre that they have something on the menu that they don't have! They should have given you a free something instead! Call the 800 number!
