Our customers are always right…except when they’re wrong.

April 25th, 2008 · 117 comments

Heather says this pizzeria in Victoria, B.C. has been confounding customers with its customer service “policy” for as long as she can remember. (Which I guess means…it’s working?)

Our customers are very important to us - as important as water is to life. Please remember that nobody likes bad water.

      Sarcastic Monkey, you are so effin classy and original when you attack someone who just tried to make a joke that has been running here on PAN longer than you have… why are you trying to start shit and insult someone because she made the “fucking delicious” reference… it just makes me think that you are not only a bully, but also not too self-assured that you need to attack that comment.

      I remember when it was a race to see who could make the first “fucking delicious” reference on a thread – it was a badge of honor. Ok, Sarah’s fucking delicious reference wasn’t the best, but it certainly wasn’t the worst! I believe I am gonna have to ask you to wear The Unitard for now….

    Perhaps this sign isn’t the only P/A thing about this place. A review I found:
    “best donair in the world
    Athena’s makes them big, bold, and beautiful. Their beef donair is 12 full inches long, and has 4 inches of girth. These things are a tradition within my circle of friends… go ahead and try to eat a whole donair… I dare you.

    The atmosphere inside is appropriately soup-nazi-esque. Just walk in.. pay the man your 10 bucks.. and you’ll be in donair heaven.”

      I guess I’ve never ordered from Athena’s, because I would remember that. Either that or it is a recent change in their customer service policy.

      He wants to know if “don’t be an asshole” applies to comments as well as TMHQ. He’s also pointing out the “ironical”ness of the fact that we’re all passive-aggressive to each other here in the comments.

      FTW?
      Amazon, if you lurk there please do us the courtesy of saying hello and introducing yourself there, not here. After all, you are minding our business, not too much to ask I would think.

      Mishee, shame on you!! Understood what you were saying, just could not fathom why.

      OutOfTopic obviously does not care where he/she/it is an asshole so why bother?

      Sorry guys my post was pretty obscure… But most of you got it totally right, this is:
      I’m Angrysh, true. It looks like a logical puzzle with no solution. I was trying to be a dick, no offence taken.
      Just to add a little to my initial point, GhostWriter’s comment is really funny but Canthz_B I’m sorry but you really “sound” mean, is it meant to be humorous?
      I don’t want to be an asshole seriously, just saying sometimes it is tiring to read certain comments, you guys used to be funnier before :)

      Don’t get me wrong, I knew exactly what you were saying, but I am saying that the first first rule of TMHQ was the rule that I already stated, and it is an inside joke with the regulars – so chill out everyone! :D

      Don’t tire yourself, OOT…no, it was not a joke. I can be mean, don’t like to be, but I know how.
      I’m really a nice guy if you take the time to get to know me. Try reading my blog (just click on my name) ;-)

      Ok, I’m kinda new here, so I have absolutely no clue as to what TMHQ is.

      Or why you guys are arguing about it…

      Help?

      Bella, I am also new. So I will join you in the dark on TMHQ. Maybe we can make shadow puppets and tell ghost stories.

    Odysseus: Oh Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, give me your help in this, the hour of my need.

    Athena: Brave Odysseus, know this, that customers are very important, as important as water is to life – but remember that no one likes bad water.

    Odysseus: What? How does that help? My men were just turned into pigs.

    Athena: Also no one likes water that whines.

    I think the beauty of this saying is that you can easily switch out the important objects. For example:

    Our customer are very important to us. As important as sex is to the reproduction. Please remember that no one likes bad sex.

    or

    Our customer are very important to us. As important as Hitler was to WWII. Please remember that no one likes bad Hitler.

    or

    Our customer are very important to us. As important as feminine hygiene is to cleanliness. Please remember that no one likes bad feminine hygiene.

      Or a bad Hitler with bad feminine hygiene? So, I wonder which atrocities he committed when he was PMSing and which he did the other three weeks of the month.

    But seriously, they make really good donairs. Ten bucks for meaty goodness? And they make a killer greek salad.

    Thanks everyone for all the laughs.

    Hilarious – I too have lived in Victoria much of the time and I remember this warning from at least 15 years ago. Correct me if I’m wrong though, but wasn’t it Cosmos Pizza that also used to or still also has this same packaging with the same warning?

    Anyhow, I was always so annoyed by this warning and the fact that the owner is clearly an asshole that I never order from them. I’m reminded to tell other people not to order either, just because of that arsy comment.

    I used to live in Victoria too! I recall being mildly drunk and calling to order some 3 a.m. after bar food and asking the guy, with no malice intended, if that was from some sort of Greek saying? Because, WTF? But he hung up on me. So, I never even got to try their thick juicy donairs. Shame, really.

    :D I was born in Victoria, BC, and I remember the Athena’s ad very well.
    It does have good pizza, though, and this one time I was short a couple bucks and he gave me the pizza anyways.
    So order from Athena’s, Victoria! :3
