Day Eleven (CDR)… Taylor Park versus Polaris… 08/15/15

Yehaw!!! It’s Saturday and the #Hicks are out to play! There is a #Polaris event this weekend… If you don’t know who Polaris is, it’s a huge selfish hick #Corporation that makes and sells #ATV’s… I don’t label them as such because I am an #environmentalist and they make loud gas engines… I’m not that predictable folks… Actually, I like these little ATV’s because I have realized that a good majority who enjoy these vehicles are older people who can’t climb mountains or hike into the wilderness… These loud gas powered vehicles allow these older people to participate and I’m sure it takes a lot of power to get up those steep #mountains, so I can’t say much against these vehicles…

I’m sure there is a more environmental approach to these #vehicles but I’m not too educated on that approach… So, I won’t go there… Since there are huge corporations that probably put into the air in one day what these vehicles put into the air in a year, I’m going to go ahead and pick the bigger fight and let these nice old people have their limited fun in life… But that doesn’t excuse the way the employees of this big Corporate entity acted towards the family owned #TaylorPark…

Folks, I am completely disgusted and it goes to show why I don’t work for these greedy, disgusting, huge companies… Now, remember that Taylor Park is #FamilyOwned and family run… These jerks came in and totally trashed their #TrailerPark… I talked to someone who works and lives up there and they said it was disgusting… They just came in, promoted their crap and left the mess for the family and employees to clean up… A perfect small scale example of how these mammoth entities just focus on their money and nothing else… They can’t even clean up after themselves and it goes to show how these Corporate assholes feel about the family run businesses in this country…

Now, I just heard about the trailer park and didn’t experience any of it… But I sure did have my own personal encounter with these self entitled jerks… It was very busy this weekend and for a good reason… It was beautiful out, there was a huge event put up by Polaris and everyone was rushing to get out and play before the summer comes to an end…

#TheNuggetCafe was relentless… There was no down time… People just kept on coming in… Of course the employees of Polaris have to eat also… Now, regardless of how busy it was, we did get the less busy times in between breakfast, lunch and dinner… We explained this to Polaris because they would come in at the busiest times and order a bunch of food to go…

Now, you would think the company who was invited to host their event on this family’s property would respect that… But no, they got this huge attitude with the staff and the whole Cafe… They would come in at the busiest times and make these ridiculous orders and then bitch when they had to wait and about how the way they were treated… They could clearly see us running around with our heads cut off but instead of coming back when it was slower, they would just stand there and give us attitudes… Then to top it off, one of us would take the time to record these huge orders, pack them up, while we are still running around serving tables and these jerks wouldn’t even leave a tip! One of the servers was so appalled by this, they confronted one of the employees and he responded that Polaris doesn’t put tips in their budget!

Really??? I know I may sound a little petty right now but does anyone not see a problem with this? This is a huge Corporate Multi-Million dollar company that has been invited to a #FamilyRanch to promote their crap and they treat the people who work here like this? I know that Taylor Park is somewhat benefiting from the crowds that come to these events but is that an excuse to act like complete assholes? If I was invited to this great little ranch I would go out of my way to work along with a overwhelmed family and it’s staff… Instead they chose to work against us and make a very difficult situation even worse… Then on top of it all, they don’t even want to play by the rules that were set by this country and it’s people by totally diregardilng a tipping policy that waiters make their living off of?

How many examples do you want folks? This is a perfect example of these #GreedyCorporateAssholes who think they are so big that they don’t have to play by rules… And on top of that, choose to shit on a family run business that has been here for generations! This is a perfect small scale example of how these big Corporate entities think of us little people, totally ignoring the fact that we are the ones that keep them in business by buying their overpriced crap! Basically they have proven to me over and over again that all they care about is getting their money… And while they are taking our money they are completely disrespecting what this country is all about! They don’t want to pay their taxes which pay for the roads they drive on, pays for the protection of this country which they take advantage of by allowing them to set up their locations and sell their crap… I can go on and on… Then to top it off, they come in and totally shit on the little people who are just trying to make a living year to year…

And it doesn’t end there folks…. In response to their shitty attitudes, all of the staff on the ranch of course gave it back! Why should we put up with this crap? Especially when #TaylorPark allows a company to set up shop and rent the Polaris vehicles to their guests the whole season… That’s free promotion all season folks and they come here and treat the family of Taylor Park like this? So, every time they came in, we made them wait… Not that we had much of a choice because it was so busy… We were not friendly to them and if we were too busy, we would tell them they would have to come back and order later…

Now, you would think this would put a little sense into their heads and make them reflect on their own attitudes and maybe… just maybe… make them realize that they were being a little unreasonable and acting like complete assholes! But no… they went on and complained to the owner… which the owner didn’t do much anything about because I think he despises this company as well… Chris actually warned me before the event even started, about how much Taylor Park despises the way the Polaris staff acts… I thought he was exaggerating but realized he was actually being very diplomatic about the whole situation… Because then it got really ugly and these douches decided to act in a way a respectful human being would never act!

Towards the end of it all, a waiter overheard one of the Polaris employee’s joking that he left a present in the bathroom for the staff to clean up… When we went into the men’s bathroom, this man had gone ahead and crapped all over the toilet seat and floor! Now, I wasn’t even going to mention this whole petty event but when I saw this, I knew then and there that this has escalated to a war! This man was probably in his early sixties and he acts like this? This is how representatives of a huge professional company treats a family run ranch?

Now I can’t blame the company Polaris for such a disgusting display of vengeance but you better god damn bet I am going to write a letter to the executive office about their employee’s behavior and of course mention it on my blog… If this is the way a big corporate company chooses to treat a family run business that goes above and beyond to promote their crap then something has to be said…

Little did those dick head employees realize that this job is temporary for me… No matter what they say or complain about, we are not tied to this job like they are to theirs… So now the real vengeance will happen and I won’t delve in petty crap like offenses (No pun intended)… No, I will make it public and write to Polaris about their employees’ behavior… But for some reason, and call me a conspiracy theorists if you like, I think this goes way beyond the employees because these senseless idiots don’t have the brains to develop such attitudes by themselves… This trickles down from the top somehow and that’s the common attitude which huge Corporations have towards our average citizens yet we just keep on giving them more money and power…

But let’s see what Polaris’ reaction to my letter is and give them the benefit of the doubt… I will definitely keep you updated… I find it hard to believe that any company would want their promoters acting in such ways… Especially on a family ranch that invites them to promote their crap, rents their crap and cleans up their mess after they leave… Even if the staff on this ranch was way out of hand and completely disrespectful to their employees, which was not the case I assure you, there is no excuse to act and retaliate in such ways!

I know that the family on this ranch can’t do much about this mess because it’s their business and they don’t want to shoot themselves in the foot… So, I promise to remove all focus from the family and this ranch when I write this letter… This is a personal plea which I will take all blame for and will back up with other #waiters’ statements… I was going to let all of this go in fear of hurting the ranch and the family who runs it… But when they chose such a display of disgusting retaliation and pure rudeness, they went ahead and personally opened this can of worms… Actually this petty display of complete disgust is a prophecy of what is about to come their way… But instead of the crap coming from my ass, it will be coming from the company they work for… And trust me, when I’m done, it’s going to be a much larger mess for them to clean up!

And by the way, I understand there are people who don’t like to eat gluten and are allergic… But we actually had an asshole from this Polaris company who returned his ‘to go’ food because there was a bun in the box… He claims that he can’t even have a burger that has touched gluten…

Really? Wow! Gluten has become public enemy number one all of the sudden… There may be few out there that may have an allergy this severe, which I doubt, but I will bet my life on the fact that this idiot did not have such a severe allergy because he ordered French Fries from us and our french fries have small traces of gluten considering they are fried along with breaded food… I know he ate these fries or he wouldn’t have ordered them over and over in the past… I didn’t see any helicopters flying this jerk to the hospital… What a load of shit! I want to take his gluten free bullshit ass and stuff him with hotdog buns until he pukes! What an idiot and another prime example of the douches we were dealing with!

So, I worked from 2 to close… It was busy as hell but I made some good money… I’m trying to finagle two days off in a row so I can climb that beautiful peak you see above… Look at that flat peak up top! It reminds me of the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind!” Every time I get up, I see that #mountain and it always catches my eye before I go to bed.. There are answers up there folks and I’m going up there to find them… Now, to get two days off so I can execute this vigorous #journey!

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
