Not About Food

"Time is up, you must leave now!"

The other night, called up a restaurant for a reservation at 7:30.

Was politely told they were booked, but could accommodate us at 7.

Was then also informed that if we took the 7 o'clock seating, we had to be out by 8.

WTF??

A mere hour for dinner?

Was this the pay phone version of restaurants?

And, what would've happened if at 8 o'clock we hadn't finished our meal?

Would we be forcibly ejected, arrested for trespassing? Shot on sight?

Has this happened to you?

(Note: We ended up at a different place ...)
