The Crotts Saga Continues…

Recently, it was brought to my attention that Mike Crotts has been using his title as a State Senator his past to get him special treatment at a local restaurant, which will remain unidentified. This is a report on how to abuse a position you don’t have but wish you did. Its also a lesson in unbridled, total arrogance. And its a lesson in how having been the Chairman of the Ethics Committee in the Georgia Senate doesn’t mean you have any ethics.

    Uh,, didn’t the story say they had called ahead and made a reservation? Where’s the arrogance in that?

    Chief Partain knows the owner of the restaurant and asked him what was going on. Partain was told that Crotts had had his “assistant” call ahead on several occasions to have them save a table for his arrival, due to various important “meetings.” In this case, he and his party arrived late so the tables sat empty while others patrons waited their turn.

    I’ve worked in a resturant before. Call ahead seating is acceptable, but they only put your name on the waiting list. They don’t have the table ready for you when you arrive. This isn’t like Bones or Ruth’s Chris. This is a national chain, they don’t have reservations or anything like that.

    The point is that Crotts is using his previous status as a State Senator to get special treatment.

    I think the problem as I read it is that the restaurant was told he had a meeting with the Governor. He also presented himself as a State Senator.

    In any case, this seems to fit the character of the person involved here.

    Will Mike Crotts announce that he’s putting in $200,000 of his own money (and not) again? Seems to me that he’s really got to watch those poker games a little more carefully to learn how to bluff.

    Special treatment at a restaurant! Is that bastard still using his Legislator discount card at the Waffle House. I thought they confiscate it at the same ceremony where they take your license plate.
