Jamie Oliver: ‘My customers steal napkins and toilet handles’
Chef says 30,000 napkins go missing a month
JAMIE Oliver has complained that patrons at his chain of restaurants have acquired a taste for items that are off the menu: linen napkins and toilet flush handles.
The TV chef said that thousands of napkins go missing every month and that he had been forced to weld the handles on to his toilets.
Jamie said: “I have noticed things in this recession.
“Like people nicking the linen napkins from our restaurants. We now lose about 30,000 a month.
“And there’s another thing: every restaurant of mine has the old-fashioned Thomas Crapper toilets because I’ve always thought they look wicked.
“But they’re really expensive and we’ve had to have the handles and flushers welded on because people were unscrewing them and nicking them.
“Honestly, some people were coming out for a meal and going home with half a toilet. Bonkers!”
