WOW! That pretty much sums up today. Today was our "Hamburger Night". We were making hamburgers, baked beans, chips, and dessert. A nice easy dinner. One hour before dinner time the Board of Health showed up. It seems someone was "angry" with the park manager, or Activities, or SOMEBODY and called the Board of Health and reported we didn't have a commercial kitchen. That's right we don't. As many, many parks do not. As many, many churches do not. We followed safe procedures, no one ever got sick, we served hot food hot, cold food cold and everyone raved about our breakfasts/lunches/dinners. This year, just like last year and the years before that. Today that came to an end because some JERK, yes, you read that right, JERK or perhaps JERKS, made a phone call. Of course dinner was called off immediately even though everything was ready to go. What to do? We gave it away! We didn't charge anyone for the dinner but I have to be honest here, the winter residents, save one, did not want their money back. So they made a donation to the Activities fund.
There's not much more to say the about the situation, one or three people ruined a good thing for not only Activities, but for the people who come here year after year and ENJOY the breakfasts/lunches/dinners. This/these JERK/s ruined it for people who had absolutely nothing to do with Activities or the park. Ruined it for people who had nothing more in common with these food events other than enjoying them. So JERK/s, I hope you are happy.
I just hang on to the thought that this/these JERK/s will one day have this come back to them tenfold. And it will,,,,because what goes around, comes around. I can only hope that I hear about it, I will sit back and smile. Satisfied.
