Honesty


True honesty comes in many forms.  And last night, we were the recipients of an  “honest” opinion.

Walking into a newly opened restaurant in Michigan City, IN I asked the first person I saw leaving  if the food being served was good.  Now I know “good” is a subjective word, and truly didn’t expect any reply other than a simple “yes – it is!”.  I wasn’t disappointed in that regard.

“The food is wonderful”, this lovely lady replied, “but the service isn’t.  I suggest going elsewhere.”  She then proceeded to direct us to a restaurant that was across the street from our hotel, on Pine Lake, called T-bones.

We were so shocked to hear an honest opinion from someone, we got back into our car and drove to T-Bones.  And neither my husband or I were disappointed.  The service and the food was excellent.  Our waitress told us stories about the town, her husband, and the history of the hotel/restaurant.  We exchanged opinions about politics, Penn State Penalties, and other current events.  And being Martini Monday didn’t hurt either.

Honesty truly is the best policy all the way around!  A huge thank you to the “good” Samaritan who aided travelers in their hour of need.  Both my husband and I appreciated it very much.
