So last night our Sunday school class had its annual Christmas party and this year we went out to eat at Dave & Busters. We left the church at 3:00 in the afternoon and arrived at our destination at 3:50 and signed in at the desk at 3:55
We were seated at 4:50
Yup...55 minute wait for a table for ten. Crazy. Then we sat at our table for ten minutes before we were waited on. AND the server seated a table next to us and immediately took their drink orders while we sat and watched.
So then we explained that we'd been waiting in the building for (at this point) over an hour so we'd be able to get in on the order-before-5:00-and-get-a-special-deal thingy. Server went ahead and gave us the special deal.
But the story doesn't end there.
Server took our drink order and then came back and took our food order. We ordered an appetizer and our meals. Our appetizer came out before the drinks did.
Then the food came out. I ordered the Chicken Monte Carlo, "without cheese, please."
Server handed me a Monterey Burger, no cheese.
"Um, this isn't what I ordered, I ordered the Chicken Monte Carlo with no cheese."
"Oh, sorry, we'll get that right out to you."
So I'm sitting there watching everyone else eat and waiting for my chicken. Finally Server came by and said, "Your sandwich should be right out."
Hmmm... I didn't order a sandwich.
Shortly, Server comes back with another guy carrying my dinner and hands me the grilled chicken club.
"Um, this isn't what I ordered. I wanted the chicken...with the green beans, the dinner...no cheese please."
"Oh, sorry ma'am, we'll get that out as fast as we can"
You know, by this point I'm laughing. It was too ridiculous not to.
So my food....the food I ordered finally came out to me at 5:55, after everyone else at the table was done eating. An hour and five minutes after we were seated and two hours after we got there!
I ate it and it was gooooo-ood.
No, they didn't charge me for it.
After that a few of us (girls) stayed at the table while the men all went to play. I walked into the gameroom and saw one of the guys from church, he asked me something about how I liked it there and I said that, "This is what I imagine hell to be like." Truly not my kind of place. Flashy lights, loud music, tons of people. If I'm gonna be in a place like that I expect TobyMac to be on stage! Love concerts...hate Dave & Busters. Yuck. yuck. Yuck.
I say next year the GIRLS get to pick where we go for the party!
