NO JELLY? NO JAM?


WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY JELLY?  IF YOU'VE GOT PEANUTS AND YOU CHEW THEM UP REAL MUSHY, THEN YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE JELLY TO GO WITH IT!

Once in a while, I’ll come across a resident of the woods who has unusual diet demands. This character is quite the persnickety diner. I’ll put out peanuts and sunflower seeds and of course, that’s just not good enough. I’m asked why I don’t have bananas available.

I might put out a fabulous selection of fruit, and berries…but noooooo, couldn’t the kitchen please whip up some peanut butter cookies?

Another thing that is a source of contention…corn. If I put out cornbread, they would prefer corn fritters. If I put out hard shelled corn, they go on strike…they want little corn chips.

I’m to the point that I don’t care if I lose a customer…I can no longer tolerate such interference with,and manipulation of, my menu.

From now on, it’s my way or the highway……TO ALL MY FURRY AND FEATHERED FRIENDS OUT THERE…STAY AWAY FROM THE HIGHWAY!! I DIDN’T MEAN AN ACTUAL HIGHWAY!!!
