Wes and I recently went to dinner at Cheddars in Webster. I love Cheddars. I have a passion for someone named Monte Cristo. He goes straight to my hips. But I cant help myself. It all started when I was 15 and did not have to worry about deep fried sandwiches and powered sugar.
I digress. We went to Cheddars and were seated and our waiter greets us "Hi welcome to Cheddars! I am your waiter, you are going to have great service tonight! I have not been a waiter here long but I have been waiting tables for a long time, and you are going to have great service tonight". Umm terrific, seems a little over the top but we will go with it. So Mr. Fabulous brings us our teas and takes our orders.
Then he comes back "Hi welcome to Cheddars, have you been sitting here long? I will be right with you" ............ What? Wes and I look at each other, half expecting to be on punked or something, "You took our order" "what? man I'm so busy tonight let me check and I will be right back" So off he goes. He comes back and he did indeed take our order (and apparently something with it) and life is good. So Mr. fabulous refills our drinks a few times, which was painful each and every time, and then he says "Do you guys know what day of the week it is?" We say "Yes Its Saturday night" he says "What? Oh man I lost a day somewhere, I cant believe its Saturday night"
Then comes time for the check, he hands us the check then immediately says "Do you need change?" whoa buddy let me check my wallet.
So do you agree? Is the phrase "your going to have wonderful service tonight" code for "get ready for some sucky service"
