but these kind of conversations are driving me insane:
*Phone rings at Cal Shabs*
Me : California Shabu Shabu, can I help you?
Earthling : Ummmmm, will you guys be busy today around 7:30?
Me : *Shaking Magic 8 Ball in order to tell the future* I'm not too sure, but the usual forecast says that we get busy between 7:00 to 8:30.
Earthling : Ummmmmmmmmmmm, ok. Do you take reservations?
Me : I'm sorry, we don't. Every seat is first come, first served.
Earthling : Well, what if I have a party of six?
Me : yeah, it's still first come, first served. Again, i'm sorry.
Earthling : Ummmmmmm, can you write my name on the list?
Me : No, sorry, but one of you could come early and scribble down a name.
Earthling : Hmmmmmm, could you save me 6 seats at 7:30, would that work?
Me : It would work, but unfortunately, that would be making a reservation, and we don't take reservations. Your best bet would probably be to come in a bit earlier just in case, but we do have lounge seating where you can grab some beer or sake. I also just brought in a Galaga/Ms. pac-man machine that would rock your socks off.
Earthling : What? Ummmmm, ok. Thanks.
Me : You're welcome, hope to see you tonight!
Sometimes i feel like smashing my phone against our grey tiled kitchen floor.
Quick and Easy Tomato Chicken Stew - Even though the key ingredients here are tomato, chicken, and chicken soup, but in fact it's the cilantro that make this dish shine. I didn't expect that ...
