: : There is a few things that annoy me about guests coming into my place. Guests who come in at 1 minute till close, those are fun people.
: If the place is open until ten I expect to be seated if I get there one minute before. If you want everyone out by ten then close at nine!
Shuttle--I guess you're obviously not understanding her gripe! Yes, technically, if a restaurant is open until ten and you come in five minutes before closing you should be able to "expect to be seated." But, why on earth would you WANT to?? Especially, if you're the only one in the restaurant! Do you like the uncomfortable feeling of keeping EVERYONE (cooks, server,manager) there for at least another hour catering to you? (I know some people get off on that) How would you like it if I showed up at where YOU work at 4:55 and kept you at work for another hour/hour&1/2,while you're doing my bidding and wondering how you're going to make it in time to pick up little Johnny at daycare or make it on time for any of a host of (outside of work) obligations----hmmmm? Be honest! I'm sure your attitude about this would change completely. Servers have a life too--outside of you! Please try to remember that as in my opinion, it's just common courtesy.
