I live in the neighborhood and so want to frequent the place because they have excellent bagels. But I am finally giving up. These people are sitting on a goldmine and don't seem to appreciate it. The lines are out the door for their bagels but they have no respect for their customers who can't spend their day waiting in line while lethargic, half-interested employees wait on them. Today I went there and after again waiting in a long line wondering why I still come here, it's finally my turn and I'm told the toaster is broken. "Did it occur to you to put a sign out telling your customers?" There are bagel places all around, including one a few doors down with a lovely bench out front and owners/employees that truly seem to appreciate my business. Bagels aren't as good by a long shot but I'm fed up with these guys.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
