Is it funny yet?? It's not all funny yet, is it??!! Hand in there! When the laughs of customers fill the walls and greenbacks fill the wallet, this will all be a distant memory!

It won't be the last time either. Don't walk away from a pot on the stove either. Don't ask how I know. Timers lots and lots of timers!

You be open tomorrow though, wont you?

Nope. It's the weekend, like government employees are going to work.

We have actually escalated this to the highest possible level. Now the county commissioners are involved, attorneys are involved, and my wife's boss even got our state senator to return some calls. Nothing going to stop this from happening ASAP if I have anything to say about it.

You would think that they would be helping you get open. The sooner you open the sooner you start generating revenue. I think they forget that what we do generates money to pay their salary. I think they all need to be reminded of that more often.

Yeah, that's the thing. When I finally got the township supervisor involved, he said he would use whatever political power he could to get things going because he wanted to see us open and making money in the community. But then he hit the same roadblock I did with this idiotic technicality between the mechanical and health inspectors and said there was nothing he could do to bypass that.

Oh well. It is what it is and like all the other problems I've encountered, I'll just have to roll with it. I mean I could get pissed off about it, but that won't solve anything, and yelling at the people who need to make this happen won't help or could make things worse, so I'm just trying to do what they say needs to be done and have it done as quickly as possible.

Otherwise, today was awesome given the response. If you count just the phone calls and walk-ins, we would have served at least 100 people. Sure, I would have loved to see that money in the cash register, but oh well. I did hand out some samples, menus, and a 10% off coupon for when they come back, and everyone seemed thrilled. And spent a lot of time just sitting down and talking with everyone who are so excited and love the food.

The community support is unbelievable. Everybody in the county, and even beyond, are talking about the place and so excited. So, I have no doubt that if I can maintain a quality produce and good service, we'll have no problem getting people in the door. So, it's just deep breaths and remaining calm while I navigate this last legal hurdle.

To be honest, I'm glad I'm taking this weekend off. I need sleep more than I ever have before.

Rest up Brother, you deserve it and things will fall into place when they're meant to.

For sure, get in that rest. Might be the last one for a long while.

What is YOUR schedule going to be like? Are you closed any day of the week like Monday/Tuesday or are you gonna take Monday/Tuesday off and let someone you trust handle things that day? I know that may be a while off until you get things running smoothly, but remember to take care of yourself, eventually.

Kill 'em with kindness. Undoubtedly, this isn't the last time you will need to deal with them.

Wifey just put the pickles in the fridge. Smells great already, but we will wait a couple days to try them. Thanks again for the recipe

I've followed this thread and follow your FB page. I would strongly recommend that you NOT post any of your negative feelings on the FB page. Vent those frustrations here in this thread and we'll all encourage you and share in your frustration. But DON'T let your potential customers see the negative stuff. You already had one woman start fussing at you for calling out the inspectors... don't let any more negative stuff get posted at this early point.
