With all due respect,again I beleive we are all entitled to our opinion.I was equally surprised and saddened by the owner's behaviour but I beleive I have a right to express it. I think it is rather unfair for people to critisise this way when what happened was really bad. I beleive the aim of the complaint is to enlighten revllers and perhaps get TIMES to improve their behaviour because I beleive in constructive criticism.If people are used to sub standard service then thats fine for them. All the same what goes around comes around as the adage puts it. Someday it will be you...

Disappointed, I'm going to explain something important to you and I want you to follow carefully.

Firstly, I believe you. You were 25 ladies who did not drink beer but only a few soft drinks and wanted the DJ to play some music for them. He was unfriendly and the owner was also not particularly nice. I believe you.

Now it's time for you to learn if you can.

When 25 of you go together to a small place like Times, it means there are 25 people who could have come to eat or drink who will turn away and go to nearby Rhapsody's instead. This is not a problem for the owner if the 25 who've taken their place are also "drinking" and/or eating, especially if they stay for a very long time. If they stay for long, it means there are many sets of 25 drinkers/eaters who are turning away, which means the owner is losing millions.

This was a reunion, which means it was quite long. And you had fanta and coke, which means you didn't drink much - no one can drink too many cokes. Plus cokes are cheap. Secondly, 25 young educated ladies looking to get married will probably be watching their weight so you didn't buy a lot of food either. And there were no men in the group to try to impress you by buying lots of food anyway.

This means, my dear disappointed lady, that your presence on 25 chairs was costing the owner a lot of money in lost business.

To make matters worse, you were even demanding special music from the DJ, as if you had earned it. It doesn't work like that. These places are businesses, not parks. You want the best, you give them a lot. The DJ is there to entertain you as you spend money there.

I hope you see why the owner and the DJ were not falling over themselves to impress you.

ba Inspector has put it very well. I agree with you, ba Teena. Those 25 ladies are just too full of it. Being well educated and a woman at the same time, should not be a passport to arrogance and snobishness.

Chief, stop calling the poor ladies full of it. Ba inspector has explained what went down, so stop beating that dead horse, will you? We're all zambians here, including these 25 sisters of ours. Nothing wrong with a bit of pride for your educational accomplishments especially if you can add some street education like the one offered by our inspector above.

Stan, I agree with you that we are all Zambians here. And as such, we are free to disagree with one another. Your opinion just happens to differ from mine, thank you.

Disappointed,

You may want to consider the possibility that your expectations in service are entirely different from the expectations of those who have been critical of you and your entourage.

Some people tend to be mellow and take everything in stride. While other people have the notion that they are the centre of the known universe. Expectations can determine happiness or lack thereof.

If I were you, Disappointed, I’d invent my own kingdom, name myself Queen and have all the imaginary subjects of my kingdom worship me. That way, you will be happy.

Kwasi,

If you think this Disappointed character got a raw deal, you should have been here when another troubled soul asked for advice on dating a widower. I think it was a widower. It might have been a divorcee. Actually I think her name was Troubled. She first appeared upon the scene by begging people for advice. When it was all over, she was begging people to shut up and leave her alone. Unbeknownst to her, she had tapped into the unrelenting, bottomless well of brutal straight talk that left her visibly shaken and regretting her venture into the advice and consolation pit.
