It would appear that I have picked at the scab of dissatisfied diners everywhere. See the recent comment from SJC below (a spray well worthy of the Hobart Restaurant Bitch of the Year Award)! There is a saying among people who apparently know: People in Hobart won’t complain, they just won’t come back. Well, get angry I say! Complain until your spleen will vent no more! Share the load with other like-minded, thinking souls and you shall be set free! Bugger not going back – tell wait staff if they are rude, tell restaurateurs if their restaurant could do with a kick up the butt, and for the love of all that is Holy – tell them if their menu is a carbon copy of everyone else’s! And then tell them that you WILL be back and you WILL expect an improvement!
That ought to get them thinking (one would hope).
