That Tabled That Discussion, Part 6

, , , , | Right | September 21, 2020

My group, a total of four, walks into the restaurant. It’s busy; the line nearly going out the door. There is a sign clearly indicating that people need to wait, order, and then be assigned a table.

Hostess: “A group of four? All right, just one—”

Just as she’s about to find a table for us, another customer and four pre-teen girls take up the last table without ordering or waiting.

Hostess: *Looking a little put-off* “Oh, no… I’m so sorry folks! I… I can’t tell them to leave the table if they’ve already sat down. Gosh, I’m so sorry.”

We all assure her that it’s all right and that we’re patient people. It’s about five minutes into our wait when the hostess spots a table being bussed. She races over through the crowd to plant down our table number.

Hostess: “There! That one is yours now! Have a seat and enjoy your meal!”

At the end of our meal, we called her over and gave her a 25% tip.
