A REALLY BAD LUNCH WITH AUNT MARGARET
5/28/17 - 5/28/17 75 °F
This morning Gordon and Margaret picked me up and we went down to Dumfries, Gordon was working and Margaret and I were just going to walk around. We had a very weird day, right from the beginning. We walked to get a tea, and we saw an area roped off and the police were standing around it. We had to take a different route and saw the forensics team in an alleyway. You don't see that over here too often, in fact its the first time in all the years I have been here, that I have seen it. We walked around different shops and then decided to get something to eat. We ordered our food in this line and you pay for it and then they bring it to your table. We got an appetizer and ate it and then waited and waited for our food. I went back to the counter to ask about our food and the lady said she would check on it. I went back and sat down and we waited again. No food. I went back and asked about it again. She said she would check herself in the kitchen. We then got our food, Margaret ordered a salad and the dish was hot, so was the salad. Margaret asked her why the salad was hot and the lady told her "It was under the heat lamp". Then Margaret said. "But it's a salad".
Then I got a baked potato which looked a few days old and was cold. We asked her to bring us new food. We waited. It did not come. I went back down and asked for my money back. At first she was just going to give us some, but eventually we got it all back. We continued with our day and ended up down by the river sitting in the sun. We waited for Gordon and then we headed back to Cumnock. Unfortunately after driving a short while, road signs told us that a few miles ahead the road was closed. In Scotland, if a main road is closed you are in trouble. The main road only has two lanes, one each way. We had to go all the way around on this winding road. If another car is coming you have to back up and let them go by. Margaret and I were not feeling very well after we got home. We had a big family dinner and we were late for it. We celebrated my nephew Scott's Birthday and Gary got a cake for him. The dinner was fun, as it always is on Glaisnock Street.
