I watched a rerun of one of Gordon Ramsey’s cooking show the other night which made me grin just a tad.
Chef Gordon Ramsay did a Kitchen Nightmares show with a restaurant in which the owners refused to take any direction whatsoever from the chef. (So why did they ask him to help out I wonder)..
That might not have been so bad, but they were caught on camera stealing their employees’ tips, screeching at customers and lying about their food. (They also claimed to make their dinners and desserts fresh, but apparently they purchased most of the food from other sources.)
Naturally criticism of the couple’s practices and their restaurant ran high on social media sites such as Reddit and Facebook, to which the owners responded with all-capped histrionics and name calling. They later claimed their social sites had been hacked, but then proceeded to again use the all-caps to name call and threaten. Talk about distinguishing yourself lol.
Not exactly their finest hour, and probably the death knell for their business.
If you get hit with negative comments on social media, remember this:
The world is watching, and once you put something out there into cyber space, not even the delete button will allow to you to completely take it back because more often than not it’s copied and pasted by those who love to share stuff.
Whilst the world got a huge laugh at Amy’s Baking Company of Scottsdale, Arizona, all you business people everywhere take note:
Do NOT react with anger when you are criticized on social media. I repeat never ever react with anger because it will just come back and bite you on the bum with a vengeance..
Watch it here, it’s a car crash where Gordon went back, it includes the best bits from the original.
I’ve watched it a couple of times, It’s that bad it’s good. (If that makes sense)…
