Whenever I see a majority of the public say something sucks OR when I see the majority of the public like something, I instantly assume they've been intelligently manipulated into feeling that way and the original product/business/art actually rocks/sucks

Instead we have no heard anything from the owner or his side of the story. Wouldn't he try to do some damage control to his business if the story is not true?
Like I said earlier, fire the person, contact the OP and refund the money plus give him a freebie. Post it on FB and everyone will think they handled it and they keep their reputation.

Just saying that not everything is easily dealt with.
It was mentioned earlier the owner was complaining to the police about being harassed. I think they are very well aware of the FB posts.

they just opened late last year too, it seems the locals in north van enjoyed the food in the beginning, and business looked promising. i hope the other side of the story comes out, regardless if it changes things people like me would still listen and give the benefit of the doubt, actually i might just go up to N.van just to try it out, but ill make sure ill bring the exact change lol.

Either way, I don't get why people find it funny to leave hateful msgs on their fb and are so eager to destroy a business.
And thats where youre wrong. What if it wasnt meant to be funny. What if its meant to share an actual, legitimate experience. I mean thats the purpose of social media isnt it? Kind of like a newspaper amongst your friends?

(edit: nevermind, my bad. I misunderstood. I thought you were talking about my friend, and didnt realize you were speaking of the people who took the ball and ran with it. I guess I mightve hit my head snowboarding today. apologies)


Honestly, why I suspect this particular story gained traction is not because of what happened, but moreso of who this happened to. People complaining/ranting/sharing on social media is not a new phenomenon, nor are negative reviews.

But since I know for a fact that this unfortunate incident could not have happened to a nicer person, and when he spoke out on his status update, this is why a lot of people in his friends list felt for the guy immediately. Had it been any other person, I doubt it people wouldve cared, or wouldve given 2 shits about his shitty night - and obviously things would not have snowballed to where it is now. It wouldve just been your run-of-the-mill facebook rant or negative review that wouldve been ignored or skimmed like everything else in facebook is.

As for 2 sides for every story, its not really that necessary. Nothing about their position has changed from the initial incident, and the only development I can see that would make a difference is they admit they were in error. Other than that, its a typical he-said-she-said scenario and you have the freedom to pick any side you want. Its just in this particular case, hes personable enough and reputable enough to have a high degree of credibilty among a vast array of friends that as you can see, theyve given his words more merit.

The pictures he provided look like it was just taken after, the fact, when he got back to his buddies place.

Im gonna guess he didnt take your suggested pictures because it didnt occur to him at the time of the incident to take pictures of said 2 goofballs or the cops. Probably because he wasnt planning or expecting for this disagreement to occur in the first place.

Who knows, just my guess.

^ To add to that...

I'm not really into hearing whiners take to social media when something doesn't go their way. Usually it's someone who thinks that by making a lot of noise they're going to get compensated far more than what they actually deserve under the threat of damaging their reputation.

This case doesn't appear to be anything like that.

Honestly, reading his status update, I didnt really gather that he was looking for a witch hunt, or a payout of any sort.


As for the people who took the ball and ran with it, yes its deplorable but I can sort of see why that happened. They were protecting or fending for one of their own that was wronged; especially since this guy is well-liked in his circle.

The event is kinda similar to when RS took to bashing, whichever girl it was that was sponsored to write a food blog for Richmond restaurants over our fellow RS member Ronin. The only difference between both situations one was sparked because an individual wronged the other, and the other was one blogger lost a competition to a fellow blogger.


Anyways, thats not an excuse. Just saying I can see how that happened.

We should make a thread about places revscene members go to that have shitty service or rip people off like this. I'd trust you random ppl over random ppl on a review site anyday.

I told you assholes not to lol. If I remember correctly, that was because she said pineapple buns tasted like pineapple.

If a business complains about reviews ruining their business, then they should stop being shitty. I've gotten an angry e-mail or two in the past about bad reviews and that's always been my response.

If a restaurant is charging an addition 1% tax and ripping customers off with incorrect change, well, then they should stop doing so if they don't want people to know about it. I'd like to hear the other side of the story but since no one's responding, that doesn't look good.

Quote:
We value our reputation for honesty and integrity and strive at all times to deliver high quality service to our customers.

On Friday evening, one of our customers claimed we had shortchanged him $30.00, within five minutes of the sale transaction.

We took the customer’s claim seriously, as any decent business would. We immediately checked our computer sales record. This allowed us to compare our total cash sales for the day to the cash in our till. There was a perfect match.

There is an old saying that “The customer is always right.” In this case, the customer was wrong. He was not short-changed.

With the benefit of hindsight, however, we probably should simply have paid the customer off and absorbed the $30 dollar loss. Perhaps letting the customer be “right” when he is “wrong” is simply one of the costs of accepting cash payments.

Following the incident, somebody posted defamatory lies about us on the Internet. These lies provoked many misinformed, critical comments. Some comments were hate-filled and ugly. Our staff have received threatening phone calls. We think most Canadians will agree that nobody should be subjected to this kind of cyber-bullying.

We would like to thank our loyal customers for their heartwarming emails. We invite others who do not know us yet to remember there are two sides to every story. Visit us, try our excellent food, our superb service, and judge for yourselves.

Manager, Giardino Pizzeria

The thing with matching up sales and cash value is that if the person that short changed the customer pockets the extra, everything will appear normal.

Chances are, if you're going to short change a customer, you're not going to go ahead and let the company reap the rewards.

lol they are so fucked... took them three days to come up with that
getting grilled on the facebook comments too

Jeff further explains it

Quote:
Yes I forced the cash out your manager did not want to do... I worked in a restaurant for 7 years with the exact same system you guys have I watched the cash out happen. Your manager saw the discrepancy and rang in 2 food items which printed thru the POS system to cover the extra cash in the till and then hit the cash out button. I did not include this part because its so unbelievable that that would happen! If you check the records there will be 2 food items rung in at 10:30 pm by your manager one after the other covering the discrepancy she tried to cover up. Feel free to post those records if not guilty. An apology and owning up to this situation would have been acceptable instead you tell the RCMP to offer me a $30 voucher for your restaurant as an apology for this and then call me a liar?! This is beyond my control now and social justice is being served. I emptied my pockets onto your counter after coming in there with 2 $50's a $5 and a loonie and was kicked out and called the police on with 1 $50 3 $5's a toonie a loonie and 60 cents change.its is an impossibility that you had given me correct change. And I am a liar? I am saddened you were unable to make up for your human error. I felt pretty bad about this yesterday but after hearing other numerous accounts of this happening, this obviously was not the first incident. Truly saddened by this whole turn of events.

i dont see why they dont just look at the video footage...

most places have a camera directed at the till...

if they see him had a red bill...hes right.

if so, shortchanged and staff pocketed the 30.


id kinda like to see the video, but i know it'll never be shown.
