While ordering at what I assume it’s appropriate to call “Camellia McDonald’s” (Folsom and 56th in East Sac) I realized that almost every time I visit that establishment I am struck by the way the young staff is, to put it delicately, unburdened by the pressures of intelligence. I recited my order and this young lady looked up at me for such a long moment that I actually questioned whether I was in the right place.
But to put a positive spin on it, I want to hear from you about service you receive that is on the other end of the spectrum. I’m sure there are some specialty shops — cycling, high-end equipment repair — that kind of ruin the curve, but maybe there are some more mainstream establishments where the service staff is especially quick on the uptake. What do you say? Where is the smartest service staff?
