Overheard on the Street: A long wait for a table

This was not overheard by me, but was overheard outside of an Upper East Side restaurant and reported at the end of a review in the NY Observer:

Outside the restaurant, one of the customers was smoking a cigarette and talking on his cell phone. “I went home with one of the hostesses two weeks ago,” he said. “When she saw me tonight, she said I’d be waiting a long time for my table.”

Made me smile.

Foreplay is SO important.

I had what I thought was a cute comment, but when I read Margi's, I'll pass.

She nailed it, so to speak!

Yeah, Margi...but the afterplay is priceless. :-)

"Foreplay is SO important."

If that was the problem, she should have seated him immediately, had the waiter rush their order and slam the check on the table along with the entree and told him to get the fuck out.
