Lum's in Junction never closed during all of this, but has gone back and forth between just a take-out window, just take-out from inside, limited inside seating, back to just take-out, and now is back to inside seating. 'Food is excellent, as always.

And, I know the dad and two sons can't work all day, every day, and I'm sure they deserve a huge break, but they've hired some kids. An older lady is there that's always been there, and I assume she's the supervisor, but the two boys (17, 18?) working the counter are a couple of self-absorbed dweebs. 'Refuse to acknowledge you're standing there and were deeply engaged in discussing, I think, a video game. bang The lady finally said "Hello sir, how can we help you?" and I told them what I wanted. She stepped away and then the kid making the sandwich stops, does this dumb-arse sarcastic face and puts his hands out because she walked away instead of helping. I would have fired his spoiled little butt right there. I wanted to come across the counter and, as my mother was fond of saying, "pinch his head off!" There was another young kid working the pits; 'didn't look too thrilled, but he was working hard.

Maybe it's a later shift, temporary help, etc., but I worry about any restaurant that starts letting a bunch of teenagers run a place. As long as the lady is there and rules with an iron fist, maybe, but kids have spelled the doom of many a great restaurant.

So it just wasn't me when we went there not long ago. Sounds like the same group we dealt with. Liked it better when the original guy was there all the time. Always been a Lums fan but the last time it seemed the three working there thought they were doing us a favor by allowing us to eat there. Oh well.

Good help is hard to find these days, especially good YOUNG help. Not many kids with a work ethic these days.
