Udipi Ltd.

I detest Udipi restaurants in Mumbai. All that matters to them is cash…lots and lots of it. They’re least bothered about customers. Besides food, what’s distasteful is the attitude of the waiters.
I remember going to one near Andheri station (W). The name’s Nootan. Just 2-3 shops past McD. I was trying to place an order, and (as always) the waiter was in a hurry. He started moving before I could finish. When I protested, the answer was  “aap ne ek order diya, wo meini suna na!”  (“I did heed to your previous order!”).
Another annoying practice is switching the water glasses. If you’ve not been gulping, busy in a conversation or something, the glasses shall be switched.
The problem is, when you’re in Mumbai, every once in a while, you do end up with no option but to visit one of these Sai *’s.

Service before self…

Was sitting in a bus when I saw three guys, at a stop, probably discussing whether or not to board. The unanimous decision seemed to be negative. A few moments later saw the three of them somehow clinging on to the bus, they managed to overcome the intial acceleration. These guys’ vests suggested that they’re blue-collar employees. The best part is, their company logo read: VSL-Safety First. 🙂
