>It must be me…#4


I really enjoy the States, especially the North East, north of Boston.

Long coastline, nice people, enough history to make it cultured.

Portsmouth’s got the Seacoast Theatre with a good show that kicks off at 7:30pm.

So I pop in to the Outback Steakhouse at lunchtime, make a reservation for 6 pm. 

“No problem” (Nothing’s ever a problem…)

Front up at 6pm and….. the wait is 30 minutes.

You can imagine how the conversation starts off – “Well actually, I’ve got a reservation for 6pm..”

You have no idea how it continues.

“Well actually, you only have a “call in”. That means that you “call in” and it cuts the waiting time by half”

On reflection, it’s best to accept the situation.

You can, of course, insist on getting your table toute de suite.

It’ll be right next to the Used Beer Department, they’ll bugger up your order and be about as friendly as an Aeroflot flight attendant.

Probably spit on your food as well…..
