Rude prompts LBI restaurant in Beach Haven, New Jersey to post “be nice” message
BEACH HAVEN – A restaurant owner on Long Beach Island said “extremely rude behavior” from a customer generated overwhelming support from the community during a stressful summer.
The labor shortage more than a year after the start of the pandemic has been felt statewide this season, arguably having the biggest impact in bustling Jersey Shore towns filled with visitors.
A post on Sunday on the Facebook page of Bistro 14, located at 830 North Bay Ave., urged kindness in the midst of the crisis, following a particular incident the day before.
Karen Vaughan and her husband, Rich, own the restaurant, of which Rich is also the chef.
“We’re so dispersed with a staff shortage, supply chain disruptions – it feels more personal to me in my opinion. This should never be tolerated, “Vaughan said in a written response to New Jersey 101.5, adding that she can only speak for her own business and just wants to support” my staff who have shown us their dedication and courage this summer “.
“I am also worried that there are people who will turn the tide because I am complaining about people who come to eat and that is not the case,” she continued.
The response to the message of kindness and patience was received very positively, Vaughn said.
A month earlier, at least one restaurant in Ocean County made the difficult decision to close for the summer.
The Brick’s Corner Post Diner reported that the “labor shortage” triggered the call, with the hope of reopening in the fall.
In the spring, labor shortages also impacted New Jersey farms, as Agriculture Secretary Douglas Fisher said he heard from farmers struggling to find enough workers for this growing season.
