Don’t be fooled by the suit wearing man! He’s just a smartly dressed little boy.
I’m going to poke a little fun today at the lovely man who was genuine, kind and really funny, I believe he would get a kick out of this.
So! recently, Buffet Heroes was providing a corporate lunch to offices in Stockport. They were having a recruitment drive over a 2-week period and the core staff would be unable to make the time for a lunch run, so they hired us to bring lunch to them.
Catering for parties is great and such celebrations are our main focus for our catering business. And then there are those who need food as a necessity and it makes us feel a much-needed commodity when catering a corporate breakfast or lunch.
The idea was we brought sandwiches and buffet food, for both meat eaters and vegetarians, we could choose the menu as long as we followed those guidelines and we did a different menu everyday.
On the first day of the second week the compliments were starting to flow, one lady said she loved the cake and looked forward to seeing what the cake was each day. We saw eyes lighting up on our entrance, the rubbing of hands, eager people in business attire suddenly were hungry and were shifting stuff off tables to accommodate our wares, it was like bringing food to a bunch of hungry kids except there wasn’t any clapping or shout’s of ‘yippee’, well not so anyone could hear.
On our 2nd to last day, we walked in to the usual shuffle, bright eyes, the licking of lips and an older man in a posh suit. He told me to follow him to a new location for set up as some exam was taking place. When we got there, he said in his deep voice but very child like ‘those little burgers and hot dogs you brought yesterday, oooooohhhhh! I just couldn’t stop eating them, I think I was the one who ate the most, they were so nice’. I thought the ending was going to be ‘please miss can I have some more’ but I got a thank you, see you tomorrow instead.
Suit wearing men, posh looking guys, dapper dudes, whatever they’re wearing, no matter the price tag on the jacket, when it comes to food they’re just a smartly dressed boy.
Thank you for your compliment I loved it, it really made my day and it still gives me a little giggle, maybe I could bring my mini burgers and dinky dogs to your 60th birthday party along with some crisp butties and jelly & ice cream and you can complement me some more, casual attire only though Mister. :D
