One busy night I am sat two tables at once. They are both two tops in
booths next to each other. No big deal I thought, I can just get both
orders back to back. Since they were both sat quickly while I was in
the kitchen, I didn’t see which table was first so I asked the one
hostess who indicated the nearest table was first. I go to the nearest
table and take their order and as I turn to the next booth the people
stand up. Of course I’m confused at first, but thinking maybe they
were called with an emergency or somehow just realized they couldn’t
stay. The man says huffily as they walk past, “We were here before
Soooo basically they waited to walk out until I had fully taken the
other table’s order, probably just so they could verbally jab me on
the way out. Then I would imagine they went to another restaurant when
if they had just stayed put their food would have been in front of
them before they could drive across town and be seated elsewhere.
Since they are semi-regulars I can sweetly explain the situation next
time I see them, and maybe they will feel as stupid as they acted.
