Last night we decided to get a bite to eat at The 99. We ordered an app in the bar while waiting to be seated and it had just arrived when we were buzzed. I asked the hostess if she'd please grab them for us and she said she would, but could we grab the menus (yes) and the plates, silverware, and napkins. I said no because we're already carrying coats, drinks, my pocketbook, and now the menus, but I said "our hands are pretty full. Would you mind getting them?" After a quick glare in my direction, she grabbed them and we were off.
Our server arrived- nice enough woman- but she called my husband sir and me dearie. Hmmm. Still no huge deal, not very professional, but we were in the 99, after all. I'm always distracted by all the TV's anyway, which in this case, the one I could see was tuned to FOX news and THAT's entertainment at its best. ( did you know that there are pole dancing classes for teenaged girls? Me neither, but apparently, it's good exercize.)
The very best part was this: A couple came in and were seated beside us. The woman told the hostess that the seats were wet. The hostess said, "Yes, I know. I've left you a bunch of napkins so you can dry them." Then she walked off. And the woman wiped off the seats. :crazy:
Call me a witch, but not only will I not carry my own food through a restaurant, but I also wouldn't be directed to complete the bussing job at my table.
