While sitting on the patio this past Sunday, a man did the unthinkable by repeatedly referring to our server as none other than– sugar. Who does this in 2014? We were prepared to witness a customer-server spanking before drink delivery. Saying sugar instead of your server’s name is not OK with your server. This guy is clearly guilty of committing a manly voice violation.
It was really weird when the same server called me honey while ordering sautéed shrimp instead of fried. She continued with a couple of other sentences before amazingly naming me— sugar. What is up with that? There’s no way she can get away with being offended by the offender if she’s using synonyms of equal shadiness only seconds before dropping the sugar bomb. We all had to not feel sorry for her anymore the second she became one of them. All I’m saying is our table unnecessarily destroyed a few molecules worrying about her feelings. That’s all.
Nowadays I say, “Is the shrimp fried in the same grease chicken and other such animals are fried?” Most restaurants really do this, which should upset everyone, minus hunters and butchers. It is best to not assume all customers enjoy mixing meat grease with seafood. Our server at Dodie’s said they do participate in this heinous frying act of tortuous grease crime. The best solution was to ask for sautéed shrimp with mention of a potential allergic meat reaction. This was my husband’s idea a few months ago. He feels it’s the right thing to do. It’s almost impossible to feel sure food hasn’t become one with meat before you eat until giving a server-shout-out that you might die.
Finding a solution to the shrimp frying problem was in the works. Having them sautéed was the best option. Little did I know a massive shrimp secret was about to be uncovered. While shrimp fried can hide— sautéed cannot. It’s like being naked. After a full-blown investigation, it was quickly uncovered that Dodie’s does not devein their fried shrimp. Holy freaking double wow. Does Dodie’s realize this means every fried shrimp eating customer is eating loads of shrimp poop during dining at Dodie’s? The poop of a shrimp is going down each customer’s throat. Plain and simple. This has been a massive fried shrimp secret until now. I’ve had fried shrimp from Dodie’s a lot, which means shrimp poop has been in my belly. Wouch.
After beginning to devein the poop from the poop area of the shrimp, it suddenly seemed best to sashay across the street for a quesadilla instead. Dodie’s needs to reconsider their shrimp ethics after this kind of sautéed shrimp poop scandal. On the up and up, the service at Dodie’s has always been great during lunch. Minus shrimp, the menu has plenty to enjoy.
FIVE: High 5!
FOUR: Please & Thank You
TWO: Double Wow
ONE: Wow + Ouch = Wouch
