Fuck the Smiling Dog Saloon-- x-posted [Apr. 8th, 2007|08:34 pm]
Fort Myers- the place to be
The Smiling Dog Saloon: I was once banned from this place and made the mistake of apologizing to get let back in. Yeah, I know. I can even make subcategories for this one:

a) John can suck a dick: First of all, if you were to look up 'Sniveling' in the dictionary, this fat fuck's picture would be posted up right next to the motherfucker. His greasy little chin seems to be directly attatched to the balls of the equally disgusting owner, Mike, because he's clutching onto the ridiculous pipe dream that he's going to own the bar someday. This also turns out to be a magnificent excuse whenever he has to say something to someone that he know's they're not going to like. He'll lumber over, drop the bad news, and then sorrowfully explain that it's not his decision, it's over his head, and you'll have to take it up with Mike. Then he lumbers away hastily and disappears (Probably in search of his spine).
John normally only has bad news for males, though, because when he's not being entirely useless in that category, he's trying to get underage girls drunk (going so far as to let them in the bar when it's supposed to be closed to the public, probabl;y to avoid cockblocking competition) so he can feel them up! Classy.
He's also got another magnificent trick up his sleeve. When he doesn't like a particular person or group of people, instead of giving the real reason, he constantly complains they don't tip. {I fixed that shit. I stopped tipping the bastard and made sure that the other bartenders put my tips DIRECTLY into their pockets} The last punk show we had went off without a hitch and everything worked out well, but why isn't Liberty! allowed back? Oh yeah, the place smelled bad and they had too much feedback between songs.

b) Mike can suck a dick (I know he already does, but c'mon, it's just a figure of speech that translates to "I hate him":
Fuck Mike. First of all, he makes gay men look bad. Hey, you know that stereotype of the gay man who tries to get underage boys drunk so he can have sex with them? That's Mike! He's even hit on the bouncer's 14-year old brother and offered him drinks! He has sex with his illegal immigrant underage workers who work at his restaurants behind the bar. He gets sexual favors from underage boys by allowing them to drink in his bar.
He also fucks over the homeless. There was a guy, Jimmy, who worked 24+ hours for Mike and John and was promised a wage and a bar tab. This was back in September or October. To this day, the poor guy has only seen a bar tab. Mike tries to justify this by saying he let Jimmy sleep in his truck when it was raining. Fuck you, Mike. Go molest some more children. If you tried to touch my little brother, I'd probably kill you.
Speaking of killing people, word around the campfire is that you can't talk shit about Mike because his family is all Mafioso and they'll come to your house and go all Christopher Walken on you. News flash: Mike is gay. He used to be the manager of TBL, for God's sake. Italians, being strict Catholics, hate the gays. His family has probably disowned him.
So Mikes a cheap bastard in more ways than one. What? you'd like another example? Why doesn't the lazy fucker fix the lock on the bathroom door? Nope, he'd rather put TV's up in front of the bar because it'll bring in more business. I'm just waiting for one of the group of roving idiot dudebros who populate the bar on Thursdays (beerpong night) to grope a girl he walks in on and for Mike to get sued over it.
Mike should also start paying his employees a decent wage. Half of them aren't even listed with the IRS because Mike doesn't want to include them because he'll lose money. And that's half of the LEGAL ones.

I guess this is a moot point anyhow, seeing as how high school kids have big mouths, and it's inevitable that the police will eventually hear about it and shut the bar down. So make sure you get your underage drinking in today!!!

* by the way, I'd like to make a note of two things (1) I love Claire. She's sweet as hell and a wonderful bartender. This is in no way an attack against her. (2) I have nothing against illegal immigrants. Hell, if they work harder than I do, they SHOULD get the fucking job. Hell, the main reason they're here is because we fucked their countries in the first place. I also like the people that work at the Grill personally. I just hate how Mike exploits them just to make a quick buck.

I think I'm going to try and get banned again the next time I go.

Interesting new site for anyone looking for a job...or MIGHT ever be looking for a job in SW Florida. Not sure if they're based in Florida or not, but they do have a lot of referrals to Florida employers. Neat idea.

I like Fort Myers [Jul. 5th, 2006|08:54 pm]
Fort Myers- the place to be
[feeling |excitedexcited]

Hi! I'm new. I'm so happy that there is a community for Fort Myers and Lee County. My parents want to move to the Ft. Myers area in a couple of years. I'm not sure which city they want to stay in. If I move with them, I'll need to find a job.

I went to Ft. Myers a few years ago. I like the small cities of Cape Coral and Ft. Myers. The trip from Tampa to Ft. Myers and Naples was worth the time and money. Fort Myes is not as crowded like Tampa. But Tampa is a big city. I really want to visit Ft. Myers again. I also want to visit the Everglades National Park. I also like the Greyhound bus station and Southwest Airport.

I do remember one observation: Traffic from Naples going north on Route 41 was heavy during rush hour.

I want to go visit the quiet shores and watch the wildlife.
Do wild alligators roam in the Fort Myes Area? I remember that my gology teacher said he fed alligators at the University of Florida.

Hi all [Mar. 10th, 2006|10:03 am]
Fort Myers- the place to be

Hi, I'm new to this group/community thing. I live part time in Fort Myers, and go to college in Rochester, NY. I was in Fort Myers last week for Spring Break, and read in the News-Press an article about a restaurant in Naples that is selling Garbage Plates. The Garbage plate, for those that don't know, is a plate of homefries, macaroni salad, and cheeseburger pattys, or hot dogs (no bun) all mushed together and covered in hot sauce. It originated in Rochester, NY. Here's the thing though: the restaurant it originated in, Nick Tahou's, has copyrighted the name, and has been known to sue over infringements. They once had a lawsuit over a restaurant who served "Plat d'Refuse," which is French for Garbage Plate (they lost, though). But using the exact name, Garbage plate, causes some concern. Hopefully they don't find out before I get a chance to go there and try one!

[the tunes |number one fan]

so i am a moderator for this rockin community, and it is kind of dead as of now.
i just had a feeling that some people may have forgotten that this was a community because the last posting was from september.
i honestly do not know why i am updating here because i don't have much to say and am really sleepy.

is anyone doing anyting fun/exciting for winter break?
break is really short this year, especially canterbury's because we are just that cool. i counted it and it is only 12 days. for some reason i remember winter break being so much longer when i was younger.
i'm not quite sure what is happening here besides the fact that after christmas=tourist season x10.

oh by the way...i know a lot of people that are in this community live in fort myers, but i thought i'd mention this. i work at a restaurant called 'the sandy hook' in pine island, and we are hiring. specifically dishwashers, which are really hard to find cause it's a gross job. my boss told me to advertise it, so here it is.

renée, my co-mod, likes it there too, but she lives too far away to work there.

alright i am hopefully going to go to sleep.
i feel really weird posting a long rambly update about nothing in a community. it seems more of something i would write in my own journal.

Healthcare jobs in the Lee County area? [Aug. 25th, 2005|01:27 pm]
Fort Myers- the place to be

Hi All-

I was wondering if any of you fellow Ft Myers area residents knew of any healthcare related jobs available in the Lee County Area?

I recently moved back to Ft Myers (Cape Coral specifically) from Orlando, and am in desperate need of a (preferably full-time) job in the healthcare field (administrative, clerical, insurance related, medical records related, etc etc). I have applied to numerous positions so far, such as at the Lee Memorial Healthcare system, as well as other medical offices and establishments in the area. I have my AA already, and and just three classes/three months shy of a Bachelors in Health Service Admin w/ a minor in Health Info. Management.

I figured it couldn't hurt to ask you all, as some of you may work in the healthcare field already or may know someone who does, and therefore may know of some job openings that I might now know of myself.
I am getting so bored/broke without a job that I may need to resort to some part-time work while I search for a better job related to my degree...

thanks in advance for your help!
you can reply here, AIM sky731, or email sky731@aol.com

Hi, I live in the cape...
$50 for who ever wants to come to my house and pull all the weeds and grass out of my flower beds.

I'm not kidding. I can't do it. I was just out there for an hour and only filled half a trash bag.

Comment if you're interested.

P.S. Only if your serious, and can do a good job, but it's pretty simple. pull them by the roots and put it in the bag.

...Oh yea. and it has to be done by tomorrow at 4:00, haha because I have to pick up my mom at the airport.

I'll buy you pizza and supply water!

My husband and I are moving to Ft. Myers in September. I've accepted a job there. I am a bit worried because all I hear from people is that it's "old people's town". Is this true? We aren't clubbers or anything, but would certainly love things to do on weekends, etc. We're both in our very early 20's. How is Ft. Myers? We LOVE Florida and have wanted to move there for ages, and now we have the perfect opportunity! Please give me the 411! :)

Thank you!

i would love for this to be "the" community in fort myers
especially considering the obnoxious posts about terri shiavo on "the" fort myers community
i would tell you how awesome/amazing the fort myers beach film fest went, but i can't make it
due to... transportation problems.
so, if this community is to continue promote it
tell your friends
i'm desperate
