We rate events to some degree in the catering business. There have been some great ones, some good ones, some ok ones, and a handful of "can we please never talk about that one again" ones. We often laugh that it cannot be the worst event unless 1) the cake falls, 2) one of our servers disappears, never to be heard from again, or 3) someone pukes all over the floor.
We had a first today though. First time we had to call 911 for somebody. The guest ended up being ok, but it was a very worried full room of 220+people for awhile. We also broke two doors, had to improvise our tooshies off, and someone DID puke. Actually more than one did. But thankfully it was outside and it was raining so I didn't have to clean it up this time.
Let's hope that is the last EMS (and puking) episode for awhile.
