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.
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 ...)
