Tickets, what are they?

Tickets, what are they?

Dear Salient,

Why the ridiculous 'ticket' system in the downstairs cafe.

1.Wait in a queue (5 mins).

Look at the sandwiches and cakes.

(Behind a screen with the notice; please do not help yourself)

(2 mins).

3.Ask for sandwiches.
4.Told have to pay First and get a ticket. Complain you haven't come for a ticket but for food and wish to be served as you pay.
5.Told will get food only when you have got a ticket. Buy ticket. (3 mins).

Wait again for ticket to be collected.

(5 mins).


Ticket collected.

Again repeat order.

Lady called down other end. (5mins) Returns.

Again repeat order.

(Total - 20 minutes).

8.Leave and write a letter to Salient requesting an explanation for this frustrating inefficient ill-conceived system.
— "please do not help yourself"
