Light bulbs, and don’t even mention Christmas Lights.

December 4, 2012

Last weekend I realized that we had 3 different light bulbs in the lanterns on the back porch.  When I went to dim them for service, it looked like a laser show.  Light was blasting into one guest’s eyes and the others couldn’t see.  When “they” started adding different clarity of lights to the florescent selection at the store, I nearly slit my wrists.  I kept exchanging the bulbs because they didn’t blend with one another.

I now purchase from a lighting company.  And one lighting company at that, as the same bulbs from different manufacturers screw up the lighting as well. It’s so complicated at the restaurant that I have created a purchase order sheet.  This sheet is laminated and placed in the box of lightbulbs in storage.
