John Friday’s Response:

I'm not quite sure how to respond. It seemed to me that the attendees had a very good time, and I thought I handled all special requests quite promptly and completely. I'm hoping (truly, truly) that the rating is a result of clicking the wrong box. If my performance was in fact that bad, I sincerely apologize. John
