A few weeks ago my wife and I made our first (and last) trip to
the Goose and the Gander restaurant in Thomaston for breakfast.
My wife ordered an omelet, some toast and coffee. I ordered two eggs over easy, hash, homefries, toast, coffee, and orange juice.
When we received our order, I noticed that my eggs were not 'over easy' but were fried hard. Not a big thing. The food was good, we finished our meal, paid the $28 bill, and left.
Afterwards, I couldn't help wondering about those eggs. Was it possible that the cook, skillful enough to work in a restaurant, did not know how to make eggs 'over easy?' That was hard for me to believe. I make them properly almost daily for myself.
Maybe the cook thought that I would not notice that the eggs were not over easy? That was also hard to believe. I did notice.
I came to the conclusion that the cook did not want to waste two eggs, said the heck with it, and sent the improper order out to me.
If you're going to charge me $28 for breakfast, is it asking too much that I get what I ordered?
For the price of two eggs (25 cents?) the Goose and the Gander lost two customers.
Not a good way to do business.
