“You made my mum eat poo”

Speaking of the shits, that’s exactly what was served up to the Whyte family in the Coogee Bay Hotel.  After complaining about the sound levels on the TV in the brasserie, the standard of service and the price of icecream (at $19 for an adult serve, a bit steep even by eastern suburbs standards), the family was served a free bowl of icecream. Jessica Whyte, the mother, explains:

“There were four scoops including vanilla, chocolate and hazelnut. At the bottom, there appeared to be chocolate. Greedily, I went for it ahead of the kids.  Thank heavens I did. The stench, the taste…I spat the food into a napkin and immediately I was sick.”

One of her sons screamed at the staff, “You made my mum eat poo.”

The Whytes sensibly took a sample to be tested. The National Measurement Institute came back with a report stating that “The sample has an offensive odour and physical properties simular to human excreta.”

The hotel’s general manager hit back, saying that the Whytes had demanded up to $1 million from the hotel and that they were treating the incident as “suspicious.”
