Sorry, we are full December 8, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in Marseille.
Orin, my graduate student, was visiting Marseille for two days yesterday. We went to a nicer place for lunch:
Us: We have 6 people
Them: oh. We are quite full, let me check.
Them: … Sorry, we are full.
Us: How long is the wait?
Them: Over 30 minutes. Very sorry!
Us: <discuss options…>
Them: Unless you’d like to sit in non-smoking?
The room they led us to was in the same area as the smoking room. And was totally empty — they must have had over 30 seats available there! 🙂
