THE WORST ATTITUDE & SERVICE THIS SIDE OF THE EQUATOR - PART 2

I happened to revisit this eatery & was refused food & service at this eatery because the owner read the review I had previously posted.
THE WORST ATTITUDE & SERVICE THIS SIDE OF THE EQUATOR - PART 2   Today, I was refused service & food at Erich's Wuerstelstand out of a personal bias by the owner - Mr. Erich towards me because he recognized me through a bad review I wrote based on his gruff, uncouth & rude behaviour with me when I visited him for the first time recently.
 
 Mr. Erich is a temperamental & testy old man who despite the many years he's spent in Asia & in the food industry strikes me as a giant wart on the name of Asian hospitality & the warmth that our countries & cultures are known to extend to our guests (especially guests who pay).    Now you may be wondering - why did I visit Erich’s Wuerstelstand after writing such a poor review to how he behaved. Why would anyone want to be cursed & poorly treated by a complete stranger?   Well the answer to that is simple.   Ever heard of second chances? I always try & assume the point of view of others & to be empathetic. It’s just something I’ve always done as a very inate part of how I think & act. Empathy didn’t purely drive me to revisit. It was also curiosity. Why is this man who everyone seems to have written nice things about such an antsy & uncivil person?
 
 As you may have probably figured, I find food stories, the people behind them & quirky eateries fascinating. After reading up a bit on him online, I figured, what the heck – he’s probably just having an awful day & life is hard in Singapore for someone in the food business. So I went again. I was in the area where his stall is located a couple of times this week & thought a quick sausage roll would be a good break between some work I had set out to do.   Keen to see if the man is always such a boor, In my repeat visit to Erich’s Wuerstelstand, here is what happened.   He ignored me as he attended to other customers & after making me wait for 10 minutes, standing in front of his stall to get his attention to place my order, he snarled at me saying that I will be a lonely man in the future because I wrote him a bad review & that he refuses to serve me. I picked up my bag & walked the other way. He proceeded to yell at me saying that I can go ahead & post this also if I want.. So I did :)..    Here's some friendly advice to all those who think they're god's greatest gift to mankind or those who think that they can get away with however they treat people.
 
 You are not the center of the world. You're not even a fraction of it. You're not the best at what you do and even if you are - you won't be forever. Be humble & try & spread joy in this world that is already ravaged with its own share of troubles.
 
 Treat your customers with respect. They are the partners to your success & would only be happy for you if you made them happy by not behaving poorly with them.

So I went to this place after much of hype from some very credible sources on the sausages available here, I was appalled at how rude & unfriendly the owner was. When I asked if they serve hot dogs (perhaps out of my own ignorance), instead of being helpful to a new customer he barked at me stating that he serves nothing like that & proceeded to storm off ignoring me. When I replied saying 'Ok my friend, what do you recommend then?' .. He snarled at me saying 'I don't know who your friend is'.. I had half a mind to walk off at this point but I was feeling persistent... So I asked him if he has sausage with bread to which he replied 'yes' and started yelling out the prices to me as if I am hard of hearing. I said ..'ok I'll have the sausage with bread then'.. Once again he yelled out the prices to me and then hastily put together something for me while I gave him his money & walked off. Such rudeness, lack of interest in new customers & such borderline sociopathic curtness & coldness won't win you any brownie points buddy. Did you not receive any love while growing up? While the sausages were good and the food was quality fare, I'd much rather buy my own sausages from cold storage or Hubers than suffer this rambunctious, uncouth, uninterested, arrogant & balmy old man. I prefer to enjoy my food for its flavours rather than have it shoved my way by a needlessly morose old geezer.

Interesting to find a rather authentic German sausage stall right smack in the outskirts of Chinatown.    I had their sausage with cheese and I love it! Though I must say that the price is quite steep for the sausages. I also had the soup which I would say 'nevermind the soup' the next time.

Over-hyped, Bad Service

Every time I walk past this stand, I tell myself how cute and quaint it is, and I'm gonna try the food one day. I love the decor of the kiosk (though very dusty) and loved how the chef always dons his chef outfit.

But when I finally did try the food out, it was really just average. Definitely not as good as the Bratwurst I've had in Germany. Just thinking about the German sausages I used to eat in Germany makes me salivate. It was a tad too oily and maybe the warm weather here just makes hot sausages less appealing.

I'm not sure if the chef was having a bad day, but he vented it on his customers. Perhaps it was a very warm day, especially so in the kiosk. I got scolded for placing my wallet beside my food, on the table where i ate. He said I was being arrogant for thinking that it wouldn't get stolen in a very nasty tone. I admit that i'm a little careless, but it was really uncalled for. He could have phrased it nicely. Either way it was unprofessional to vent his displeasure on customers.

all in all, I think it's over-hyped because it's one of the few sausage stands around with such a quaint exterior. Food was average, service seems to depends on his mood.
