Two uninvited guests...Mr &Mrs F..


 Uninvited guests interrupted my meal.


After work on Thursday, I decided to treat myself to lunch at browns; I put up a post on browns here a couple of years ago but things have since gotten better there.

My dearest treats me to impromptu lunches at Browns, I like the place. It is a nice place with a peaceful atmosphere. The waiters are also efficient though the last time I was there with dearest; our food came in so so late, we were almost dying of hunger.

Anyway, back to my lunch On Thursday, so I walked through the doors of Browns and was greeted by a waiter as I walked down to sit at our usual spot. The waiter came with the menu and I ordered my food and drink.

Two minutes after the waiter set my food on the table, just as I was about to dig in, two uninvited visitors arrived at my table distracting me; it was Mr and Mrs Fly! I hate flies sooooo much especially when they come around something  I am eating(particularly when I am very hungry), I just feel like once they latch on something you are about to eat, if you put it in your mouth you get ill immediately, I  don’t want to start imagining where they could have come from. I feel that when one is outdoor flies might invite themselves, but what about indoors?

After spending sometime  multitasking  driving Mr and Mrs Fly away and at the same time trying to eat, I got sort of frustrated and called the waiter, he apologised and went to get a spray bottle which I am guessing contained insecticide, he sprayed it around a bit(I think it must have been odourless because I didn’t smell anything but  I was bit concern about how safe that was) the flies disappeared and just as I was about to relax and enjoy the rest of my food, they appeared again. In frustration I ate what I could, asked for my bill and left my table to Mr&Mrs Fly. 

The food was very nice, as usual everything was good, only the flies… Browns  is a nice place, I will go there over and over again BUT the next time I encounter a fly? It must surely die! or I'll  have to pay only half of my bill lol.

Have you had an experience like mine at a place you really like to go? Would seeing a fly on your table put you off going to a restaurant you like to eat at?

  2. @Spynaija, I like what you ordered, back to flies at restaurants. Hmmm, let me not spoil business for some reputable names. I took my kids out for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, we placed our orders, the food arrived and before anyone would start eating, a very big fly appeared from no where and started buzzing around the food. The waiters came and did something about it, but the girls refused to touch their food and that was how we left without eating.

    After that experience, they vowed never to go to that branch again. Although this, is the branch closest to the house, I now drive past it and go farther to eat out.
    I hate flies, my girls are worse!!!

  5. It must have been so irritating to have those annoying/interfering couple buzzing around and trying to dig into your food. Such shameful meddling! I think one or two are tolerable-one can do battle and win with that number, but when it becomes a swarm of flies, then that is another matter entirely. That is a matter for physical warfare o, lol. Sorry that your lunch was ruined. I hope Browns does something about this menace so that their nice food, is complemented by a fly-free environment.

    1. Thank you Ivy, It was so annoying especially because i was hungry. I will give them one more chance, the next time I go there and flies attack me, I would have a serious chat with the manger and that would definitely end my relationship with Browns.
