Apparently I was wrong about personal service in my last post. So much so, the BBC is making a series about it – ‘Michel Roux’s Service‘. I’ve just seen a preview clip of it and OMG! does it look exciting!
That last bit was sarcastic.
Yet another friggin’ ‘reality’ programme (about as real as Dolly Parton‘s headlamps) with a s-l-o-w, p-a-t–r-o-n-i-s-i-n-g n-a-r-r-a-t-o-r, about a bunch of no-hopers training to be waiters. OK, silver service waiters, but still waiters. Christ on a friggin’ bike! Where do they get the ideas for these programmes from?
In a real attempt to make the programme exciting, one of the participants announces “If we can do this, we can do anything”. So you’ll be able to drive an F1 car will you? Or design a viable and economical solution to replace the now obsolete U.S. Space Shuttle orbital delivery system, will you?
No, I didn’t think so. You’ll be a posh waiter.
