Funny you should bring that up, I used to eat at two chicken wing places that were run by Asians, never had the wings, one of them made remarkable chili dogs, the other had a dish that was beef ribs, sliced thin so the ribs were little circular bones, they marinated it and grilled it, it was really tender, tasty, and good, served with a side of rice and some really good cole slaw, for $3. It was really the only decent food close to where my shop was back then, and they were on the edge of a college complex there, I ate there at least three times a week.

By the same token, I have found that eastern Indian folks who are new immigrants and own Dairy Queen franchises, and at least one of the Philly Cheese Steak franchises are very inept, and don't understand American expectations. They also have language issues (for some reason, I guess they don't understand the slow southern drawl) and will argue that you ordered something you didn't because they didn't understand, or the father who took the order got it wrong. Most folks would ignore whose fault it was, and just make the customer another sandwich.

By the same token, the best Blimpies I have ever been to was owned and run by an Indian man, but he was not a new immigrant, very happy in his work, and very attentive. Food was always excellent and he would come out and talk to me, make sure everything was all right...

Cleveland has a large Hispanic population as does Painesville (a far eastern'burb). In fact there is a bodega there with an attached restaurant where it might help if you speak Spanish. The "no parking" signs out front are even in Spanish. You can imagine how good the food is when nearly all the clientele habla espanol.

You called in a fake propane emergency? That's a $50 fine after I report it.

I like the people that come in and tell me what they want replaced... Don't bother checking anything or a diagnosis... "Just change that, I'm not paying diag time. "You work on cars because your stupid." Those are my favorite customers, usually by the time they have paid for 3 parts plus install they are ready to throw in the towel and let me do my job.

Fun is seeing them come in with LEAN O2 Sensor diag fron Advance Auto Parts and no code numbers and want you to change ALL 4 O2 sensors that the parts house just sold them after a free scan on the Ford F150 they just drove in... Because I would be cheating them out of a nickle if I was paid to do the diag and saw P0171 and P0174 and heard the PCV line whistle because it has a 3/8 in hole in it..

Just as I thought - you were unaware of that.
Show me a verdict of innocent in a court. It never happens.

If there is an electron moving within 50 feet, they call me. If it isn't moving, and it is supposed to, they call me. JJJ sold the money making part of the RR and kept the coal burners. Google Age of steam roundhouse.
