Called a small low-to-mid-price restaurant to see if I needed a reservation for that evening. No answer, no answering machine. Okay, no problem, I'd just call back later.

Phone rings a little while later. It's the restaurant. Did I call them? What did I want? No, they say, res not necessary. Then they ask about the specific person in whose name the phone is listed. I give brief explanation, probably sounding a little curt, and the call is ended.

Yes, dinner was tasty. But the call-back was somehow a little disconcerting, nothing to get wound up about but...maybe a little creepy? Opinions?
