Boos and Bouquets - No plastic bag with my order

Published:Sunday | April 4, 2010 | 12:00 AM

I visited the Mother's restaurant in Park Plaza in the Half-Way Tree area three Saturdays ago to buy a patty combo for my daughter.

The attendant handed me the patty and the drink without anything to put it in and I was not dining there. I asked her for a plastic bag to place my items in, and I was informed that I am not supposed to get one because I only bought one patty and a drink and I would have to purchase more items in order to receive a simple plastic bag.

I demanded my money back and she called the supervisor, who, to add insult to injury, after giving me a bag, began to complain loudly saying, "Everybody want a plastic bag. A nuh all ah unuh fi get dem. It's company policy."

If this is how they plan to cut costs, they can definitely expect to be cutting customers too because I will never buy from Mother's ever again!
