.. but ignore me or treat me with disrespect, and you can forget it.
Right now I’m sitting in a Friday’s off 290. I hadn’t planned on eating here; I had actually planned on eating at Chili’s. However, after I arrived, a host said he would get a table ready. Then a hostess walked up, and sat three groups that had arrived AFTER me. I think she gave one of them my table.
Then she got to me and said, “It’ll be just a few minutes.”
At that point I said, “Why don’t I go elsewhere, then, as I was here before those people you just sat down?”
She gave a bit of a half-hearted apology, saying she didn’t know. I just turned and left.
I don’t like to think of myself as harsh or impatient, but that irritated me beyond belief. At least right now I’m eating somewhere where I was seated immediately and treated well by the waitress. :-) So, for those keeping score, it’s Friday’s 1, Chili’s 0.
