I was working one of our usual slow days, which, for some reason, was quite busy. My boss had to pop up to his house to get something and left me in charge of the restaurant for a little while. As I was kneeling down and explaining the menu to a customer, another one walks straight past me (past the maitre de’s section) and into the kitchen, asking the chefs (who have nothing to do with the front of house) to find her and her family a table – despite her family not yet being in the restaurant. I quickly excuse myself and rush to stop her, guiding her back to the large sign at the front of the restaurant that read PLEASE WAIT TO BE SEATED.
