Re: Why boycotte a place just 'cause of one bad purchase

If I go to a restaurant once and they flub a simple order, it's more likely that their service is substandard than that I just happened to get the one order out of 500 that got screwed up that week. See, I look at this completely differently. I DO assume it was a one-time mistake. I tend to give es...
