Nah, ignorance is not knowing something. Thinking that you do is a step beyond it.

That's egotism.


But seriously, would it be egotism, Harvey? oO

Yes. A person assumes they know something (or knows very little), keeps it as fact, and then uses it as fact to generalize their knowledge of a subject, when, in reality, they don't know much of anything about what they say they do.

I think she was joking, Gravehill.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

I know. Rule is still rule and it must be kept. I took into consideration other threads and events that happened recently, too.

i had some stupid woman return her burger because she claimed she couldnt eat it because we didnt give her a plate. she apparently didnt want to pick it up in her hands and eat it. she wanted a plate and knife and fork. she later complained because we put the tea bag in her tea instead of letting her do it.

and that is when people think they know but really don't do...
People who insist they are right when they in fact don't know squat?
Those should be taken out and shot.
Like teachers who simply can't accept that their students sometimes knows stuff before they go to class.

No that is not true.

And even if it was, that's no excuse to mistreat people.

Especially people who handle your food... and have places where you can't see them.

Almost as good as my freind who had someone order a margarita for her kid.. and not tell him to make it without booze.  Who was at fault?  Not her!

No way in fucking hell! The one who came up with that brilliant saying should be shot, sodomized, dismembered and burnt (not necessarily in that order).

My boss agrees with me btw (one of the reasons why I like him, I can count on him being on my side if customers should complain),

I am right! That's a definition I can support.

However, the customer is far from always right. Generally, they're actually not.

Exactly. We have some rather large knives behind the counter at my workplace, used for food preparation.
