This is not a problem because I love to people watch and I make up stories about everyone sitting around me and the waitstaff.
Out running errands yesterday and after donating blood the day before I had a sudden hunger for something beefy like a rare steak.
Outback Steakhouse, hadn’t been there for years and couldn’t remember why I never want to eat there ….
I don’t ever go into a restaurant when I’m eating alone during their peak hours. I don’t like taking up the table just by myself. It was about three in the afternoon perfect nonpeak hours.
I looked around as I walked in and saw that they were not busy at all. I was taken to a table where I read the dessert menu, the drink menu, read about each one of their salads, read about all of their steaks and entrées, still had not seen a staff person.
Well I take that back about a dozen staff people had walked past me, I could see one talking on a cell phone, a couple were just doing side work. A few glanced at me but didn’t bother to say anything.
Yikes! Up until that point I was just bored. Now I was annoyed. Got up and as I was leaving I told the hostess that no one had even spoken to me. She stared blankly at me I don’t think she even remembered seating me earlier.
Well now I remember why I don’t eat at Outback Steakhouse!
But if I ever want to write a post about being invisible I’ve got lots of experience now. Thank you for that Outback Steakhouse but “Make my Day”? Not!
