If you prick us, do we not bleed?
if you tickle us, do we not laugh?
if you poison us, do we not die?
and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice.
I was tempted to write about my angst against 2 of our co-tenants at Mango Square who have been making our lives @ Beachroots very difficult. But I guess, being angry and writing about that would just make things complicated. The two events that happened over the weekend weren’t premeditated. An outburst of emotions is an understatement, maybe it was just our patience being pushed to the limit. We want to clarify that we, at Beach Roots aren’t war freaks and that we are nonviolent people who just want to run our business the right way. But then, the damage has been done and the best thing to do is to forget what happened and move on. It would be a vicious cycle if we keep on throwing sh*t at each other --- we would just be piling up the problems all the more. All we wanted is a healthy competition in this business as we are all adults here. We want to put an end to all the negative insinuations, intimidation, backstabbing, and badmouthing these tenants have been doing. This is a free enterprise and our customers have the freedom to choose which bar suit their taste and lifestyle. Just for the record, 80% of our customers are our friends, officemates and relatives.
So much has been done, a lot has been said and with that, we Rooters, rest our case.
