My very first table tonight was a couple with their son. They looked vaguely familiar, but half the people who come in do, so I didn't think much of it. They asked to try a couple of our wines, so I got them a few sips of each. They didn't like them; the man decided he wanted a rum and Dr Pepper, but the woman still didn't know what she wanted. After another ten minutes, she decided she didn't want anything "right now". She never did end up getting anything to drink, not even water.
Ten minutes later, she still didn't know what she wanted for dinner either. Five minutes after that, nothing. Five minutes after that came the quiz. I spent several minutes going over all the steaks, answering stupid questions like "how big is the 9 ounce steak", explaining all the sides, etc. etc. Five minutves later, no decision. They arrived at 5:30; at 6:05 they finally ordered. At 7:20 they left, and left behind a whole $4.
The thickly bearded men next to them lingered as well; so did the nuclear family on the other side. They finally moved when the dinner rush was over; I was a second cut, was there until 10, and had a whole eight tables.
