Commentary Magazine editor-in-chief John Podhoretz declared victory on Tuesday after receiving a handwritten apology from the manager of Schnippers, a local New York City restaurant chain, after his lunch took over an hour to be delivered.
“I want to reach out and apologize for today’s order. Over an hour is too long to wait when you’re right up the street,” wrote Jahred Haynes, the general manager of the restaurant’s 41st location wrote in a handwritten note to Podhoretz on Tuesday, while also offering him a goodie bag of chips, brownies and shakes.
In addition to his role with Commentary, Podhoretz also regularly writes for the New York Post and is frequent guest on MSNBC.
Haynes, 37, told TheWrap that it was all part of the job.
“Sadly, I’ve been doing this about 20 years and over the course of my career, in general and with Schnippers, I’ve written many handwritten heartfelt notes just apologizing when we sometimes fail to meet expectations to our customers,” he said.
Haynes said Podhoretz ordered a black cherry soda, a sloppy joe with no bun with cheese sauce, and order of fires and that he was a frequent customer.
Before receiving his apology, Podhoretz launched into a four-tweet tirade against the restaurant. He later deleted the tweets, but not before they could be screenshot by Barstool Sports personality Dan Katz.
“I made an order more than an hour ago. I’ve now called twice. Been put on hold for five minutes each time. I will now tweet out that no one should ever order from you every fifteen minutes today and tomorrow,” he said tagging the company account.
“No one should ever order from you. Ever,” Podhoretz added. “Aren’t you ashamed of your dreadful, horrific service?”

Brzezinski said what Bill Clinton was to sex, Trump is to "decency"
"What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this president is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news," Brzezinski said in June 15. "I think it's that simple and we're desensitized if we even argue it."
"If the president seems delusional about his accomplishments, you can point no further than that room," Brzezinski said in June 14. "There are no real men in the inner circle of the White House... none at all."
“Donald Trump, again, being a schmuck, thinking he can buy people’s integrity by inviting them over to the White House and wowing them,” Scarborough said on June 7 when discussing a dinner party at the White House. “That’s how he thinks. I know that first hand.”
Scarborough said Trump “is not a sane, rational human being”
“If any CEO, in a Fortune 500 company, was behaving this way, he or she would be removed immediately… they would take him out, he would have psychiatric evaluation and he would no longer be the CEO,” Scarborough said on June 6.
Scarborough called Trump a “bumbling dope” on May 11 because of the way a meeting with Russia’s Foreign Minister was handled.
“Looking at the front pages of the newspapers here… The Wall Street Journal also, you look, of course, at pictures. The shameful picture where the United States press corps was kept out but the Russians were allowed in,” Scarborough said while holding up the paper.
Scarborough slammed Trump on March 31, saying that Russians are lucky that POTUS is “stupid enough” to pick up their fake news.
“We’re obsessed on how the Russians have hacked, how the Russians have tried to impact this, how the Russians have tried to impact the White House,” Scarborough said. “We’re really just playing into their hands.”
