Had some royally shit fish and chips tonight. Well, the fish was actually really perfectly done and it WAS a big bit – not least for a “Small cod”. But fuck me what I actually asked for and what I actually got were a set of very different things.
It really didn’t help the owners aren’t English. He asked if I wanted salt and vinegar – and clearly the only response he’s geared up for to this question is either “yes” or “no”. I said “just on the chips, please”. He did not appear to understand this. I then said “and could I have them wrapped separately please”. He did not appear to understand this either.
So there I sat and waited, with a very bad feeling about this.
After an excrutiating wait, presumably because a lot of customers are either easily pleased, or have also never ordered from there for a long time either, I finally got them, and got them home. Opened the box to find……cod and chips. In the same box together – some of the chips now integrated into the fucking fish batter. No salt and vinegar.
Fucking fuck off am I EVER going there again!
