Service dogs

Chicago hot shot

First off, this restaurant is great for the community. The owner did not know the amended laws to service dogs. The owner has a business to run and has to go through rigorous health inspections. Obviously the owner of the so called service dog did not want to relinquish as to what type of service the the dogs serves as. Yes I understand that the owner doesn’t have to disclose as to what disease or medical condition the handler of the K9 has but the law states the handler must say what type of service dog is. Read the law you!!! Don’t discriminate this restaurant because of some asshat that put a service dog harness on his pooch and is using it for the wrong reasons. Mr dog handler was at the car wash two doors down and had no other choice but to put a service dog imposter vest on so he can knock out two birds with one stone. Get a car wash and lunch. The moron had obviously abused the power of service dogs. Grow up what’s next your gonna steal the valor of our soldiers that serve and protect our great nation and have true legit service dogs to help with ptsd or any true medical condition. The truth is this guy was getting a car wash and couldn’t leave his dog in the car, so he puts a service vest in and goes grab lunch to facilitate the time it takes to wash his car. True discrace from this coward.

Possibly the WORST APP EVER


So almost all google searches for a restaurant include the yelp listing and reviews as a top result. If you make the mistake of clicking on it thinking you’ll get more information, you will instead be led to a page which asks you if you’d like to open up the result in the app. That just a formality and not a true and actual choice because even though you’d be perfectly happy to continue reading the result that has your interest right there in the mobile-version website, you actually have no choice but to indeed select the open-in-app version. Once you do that you will have one of two completely frustrating experiences— you will either be prompted to update the app (because this app seems to require thrice weekly update), or you will in fact be taken to the app, but to a thoroughly generic page which bears no connection to your original search, must less your original result. If you haven’t yet fainted from hunger in the now 13-Minute long experience, you may start your search all over again from within the app but it will never bring you the same result of the half-read review that originally caught your eye in your google search. To spare myself this agonizing frustration I have deleted this stupid app from my phone and when googling restaurants only click on Trip Advisor reviews so I don’t have to be dicked around in the Yelp app circle of hell any longer.
