THE VILLAGE IDIOT
OMG WE LOVE YOU
(We really do)
We just want to hug you and introduce you to our mamma in Italy.
Our Mamma always told us "think before you open your mouth'
Obviously these people did not get Mamma's memo!
(Any reference to any person or episode is not accidental, we just don't know their names or we would definitely tell you)

A. We are sure but no thanks.
Q. Your food sucks. I know what real Italian food is.
(Do idiots only come in our place or do other establishments have the same experiences? Please tell us.)
Q. I know you have a sign at the door saying 'No food or beverage allowed from outside' but can we bring our own wine?
A. Because your wine falls in the category of beverages and it comes from the outside of this restaurant and anything included in the category of the beverages that come from outside of this restaurant is not allowed in this restaurant.
Q. Your sign should be more clear.
No matter where we are Italy or United States the village idiots
are always with us, some more aggressive than others,
some sweet, some just needing someone to love.
PS. If you think for a moment we made these up, think again!
