OBSERVATIONS AND THOUGHTS

I have been writing a few things, I have been noticing around the Jewish world. Maybe this will become a friday theme? Hopefully not. Here are the thing I have been noticing.

1) The Skvere (square) Rebbe, has visited the city of Flatbush. They actually think that Flatbush is a city, that's what it says on those bags he gave out. How long could it take to check up, if Flatbush is a city? Its like the five boroughs being; Williamsburg, Borough park, Monsey, New square, and Flatbush, sad. Also, why is it that the Rebbe gave out blessed quarters? Did they not used to give out dollars? Better yet, he should have gave out a pack of "blessed Kleenex" to everyone; then when you sneeze, and no ones around to say bless you, you are automatically blessed.

2) Pizza should come with nutrition facts. Why is it, that they don't show what its made out of? I would like to see the exact ingredients. How much of my daily fat it contains, based on 2000 calorie diet. It should say: X amount of Flour, X amount of Tomato sauce, X amount of Mozzarella cheese, 1 roach, 0% vitamin A,B,C,D. 3% iron etc. etc. They should have no problem of where to put it, it could be baked into the back of the pizza. I would really like to know which store is ripping you off, on the cheese and sticking in more sauce, or vice-a-verse. Does the pizza store Mendelsohns beat Pizza time, even though both prices are highway robbery?

3) On any store which sells food; there should be a sign, showing all of there health code violations, especially in Midwood. Because the amount of violations allowed are 24, and some have 22, sickening. A good store has only 12, less sickening, still pretty bad.

4) LOL's (Little Old Ladies) have no manners. Parents should be more afraid of them than molesters. Hers why. When I was about 7 years old, I was waiting by my bus stop, ever so innocently, as an LOL walked up to me. The temperature outside must have been 40 something. I was wearing my coat with it unzipped. The LOL then had the nerve to come over to me, and I don't know exactly how, but she forcefully zipped up my coat, against my will. My little brother, also unzipped, was laughing his head off, She did not get him.

Another story of an LOL "caring": I was in a pizza store, and a kid not more than 12, was sitting alone. There were no open seats available when a (you guessed it) LOL walks in. She ends up sitting next to the kid (He is Jewish). As politely as the kid was, he could not have escaped what was about to happen. The LOL is talking about her life, and somewher in the middle she says "you are such a nice young man for speaking with an old lady like me" (something of that sort). She seemed to want notify everyone around her, of that fact. Then the kid wished to leave, for fear of more an embarrasment. She say this next line twice, once louder than the other, so the whole store can hear. She says to him " You can tell your mother, you were speaking with a girl..... whose old enough to be you grandmother" (read once again, just louder). The kid got really red. LOL's are just something you need to keep children away from.

You have everyright to dissagree with some of my thoughts, I am just throwing them out there (I might argue back).

why should the boy in the pizza store be embarassed? he did a big mitzvah by letting a lonely old lady talk to someone.

Lion O Zion

I really dont know. Why does anyone get embarrased.

To check out how many and what the violations are at your local eatery, check out NY Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene's Restaurant Inspection Information:

{Be prepared to eat at home for a while....}

Moshe said...

Great site and looks like both Meal Mart and Meisner got their act together for the last inspection. Meiner's previous inspection, 37, and that's teh place a lot of shul get food for kiddush. Enjoy your food.

frum single female said...

yes, it would be great if the small pizza stores posted the nutritional facts .
amnon's pizza is packaged frozen, and has the nutritional info on the package

Mikeinmidwood said...

G6

Thanks for the site

Moshe

Ugh. I was hoping for a little better, from some favorite places.

Moshe said...

And next year it's gonna be back to 30+.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Moshe

I hope you are wrong.

Moshe said...

The only reason violation point count drops in Jewish places is because they get closed down for a week and must quickly fix everything up, then next inspection is below 10. Next year, it's back to old business.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Where is a good place to get your kiddush?

Moshe said...

Home ;-)

Mikeinmidwood said...

LOL

Moshe said...

There's no place like 127.0.0.1
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
There's no place like 127.0.0.1

LOL Moshe.

That's funny they called it a city. Reminds me of an e-mail I got with different Chinese posters that were translated to English for the Olympics, and what they said were all wrong.

I never knew the Rebbe gave out money. Funny about the tissues.

About the pizza, haven't tasted it for years, and it all smells (bad) to me. But wouldn't you be able to tell how much sauce or cheese it has based on how it looks? If they would have nutrition facts on it, it would scare people away from eating it. but here's some nutrition facts, it's got lots of oil, and tomato sauce causes acid reflex.

I would rather not know how many violations a store has. I wouldn't be able to trust a store again if I would think about what goes on in there. I'd rather believe the stories are rumors. So long as I see no one dying from it, then it's safe.

That is scary having a strange old lady come over to you and zip you up.

Lion Of Zion: That is embarrassing for the child, especially cause it was a boy. You get embarrassed when you hear praise, especially if the child didn't look up to the old lady so much. Like children get embarrassed if their parents start talking about them to their friend and other people.

Moshe: "There's no place like 127.0.0.1"

I've used that to configure Yahoo mail to come to my desktop client, even though it's not yahoo mail plus. Using Ypops. So the server it said I should use, was 127.0.0.1

O, and about no place like home. We went away for friday night meal to one of the families I babysit by. Then when my little brother mentioned wanting to go to the skverrer Rebbe. The father said that his father would always say: "Why go to a Rebbe for shraiim, when you get the real stuff at home?".

Babysitter

Pizza smells bad?

Mikeinmidwood said...

You just shattered my world.

The Babysitter said...

MikeInMidwood: well my older brother never liked the smell of ketchup so he wouldn't let my twin brother eat anything with ketchup at the same table as him. So then I started picking up on the scent too, and didn't like it either. Sorry about shattering your world, lol. But considering there are millions who love pizza, I'm sure your world can be rebuilt in no time.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Babysitter

I cant stand Ketchup either, tomato sauce is a whole different story.

The Babysitter said...

their both made from tomatoes, no?

Mikeinmidwood said...

Babysitter

They are made differently.
