Pipa oddness/rudeness

Chowbabe | Feb 12, 2001 03:16 PM

A friend of mine just called for a reservation for 6 people for a Wed night, and the reservationist told her that we couldn't be accomodated because they only have one table for more than 5 and it's booked for 8pm. My friend asked if they could put some tables together, and the reservationist snipped, "If I start putting tables together then I can't sit other people." Does anyone else find it strange that a restaurant would turn away a group because of the possibility of "other people?" Sheesh.
