    But do they deserve custom when they treat the customers like shit?

    A tam tam. Pizza without any topping?

    Have I missed something? Does that insinuate that they have been closed? I have not been back since the happy couple had a screaming fight in Italian while me and my wife were eating our meal just over a year ago or even longer. I don't wish to ever go back.
    The meal was really nice though.
    What are you referring to Nick with this comment?

    The fact that English Alan has visited several times and found it closed, with no notice of closure being apparent.

    Now I see Colin W has found Bamboozled closed twice without notification.

    This is no way to treat a loyal customer base.

    How’s your ‘Italian’ coming along?

    If I go to a restaurant and they are closed, I go somewhere else.

    Many restaurants post updates on their Facebook page.
    Many customers check the page of a restaurant prior.

    (Maybe the Line app is utilized.)

    Maybe there is a phone contact number for those that don't have Facebook...
    maybe.
    "Hello, are you open tonight ?"

    This is Surin. This is Isaan.

    Sadly the stalwart Farang Connection died along with Martin.

    Now try doing business with the bank who surely keeps regular business hours.

    At least you won't require identification at Tam Tam.

    If they were arguing in Greek I would probably understand a bit. It was forced on me by attending a school that had 80% Greek kids. Italian not a language I know at all.
    I know a heated argument when I see and hear one though. You don't have to know the language.

    Parliamo italiano? I spent 3 years in Sardiania where English was not spoken and I had to learn italiano to survive. The first words I ever learnt were, "Non solo Tedesco, solo Inglesi" (I am not German, I am English). Being over 6 ft tall, blue eyes and fair hair I was easily mistaken for a German. The Sardinians hated the Germans because of what they did to them during their occupation of the island in the 2nd World War. I had to use that phrase often. It made a big, big difference to the way I was treated when out and about, that was for sure.

    Surely that might not help as much when traveling through Europe after Brexit. :mask:

    After Brexit? That’s a leap of faith

    Ahhh, Italian stories...I'll share one.
    As I have previously told, I lived for a time in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia when I was in my late teens. Being a former Italian colony during the late 1930's, Ethiopia had a large amount of Italians living there and their Italian Club in Addis (the Juventus) spent a lot of time at the local bowling alley. I also spent a lot of time there, as I had a serious bowling addiction at the time and this was one of only two bowling alleys in the entire city.
    One particular Italian, Romano Palucci, bowled an almost perfect game...a 299...which means he rolled 11 strikes and then missed the final strike in the last frame by one pin; 11 strikes and a nine count for due ciento, noventa y nove (299).
    Now, if you've been with my story for this long then now you understand the last part of my user name: mario299

    Maybe we should build a wall. That will sort out the problem (Joke).

    The "L's" are fine, but there's too many "E's", according to Webster's.

    As member English Alan has suggested elsewhere it would be best to get the Bamboozeled posts (past dozen or so) off of this Tam Tam Pizza thread and onto the Bamboozeled thread.

    Good idea, Cafe!
    Someone start a thread and I’ll see what can do.

    Easier said than done. However, in the spirit of the request from @Coffee, recent non Tam Tam Pizza posts have been deleted. Please review https://www.surinfarang.com/forum/threads/bamboozelled.26179/ and initiate / repeat any comments you wish.
