Not even a pear let alone a partridge...

On the first day of Christmas my customers gave to me,

Not a lot actually as one whole table of ten didn't show up despite being confirmed and having paid a deposit, which is odd to say the least. It's odd and worrying now that I come to think of it because if they show up some other day they are likely to be very disappointed.

I was also promised a number of celebrities for dinner tonight. Number of celebrities promised, two. Number of celebrities delivered, none unless of course you count the strange blonde haired kid from that show, Skins. Which of course I don't.

It's gonna be a long weekend.......

20 People trying to get Manuel's attention:

I wouldn't worry about the table of ten who didn't show up.

It was probably for a perfectly innocent reason. They were probably all slaughtered in Bombay.

Medbh said...

You mean it's going to be a long month.
Fingers crossed.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

Who knows what this Christmas will bring.....

Silverstar said...

Yeah, this year might suck. Folks are hanging on to their money. If they have any left after the last couple of months, that is. Sorry. I even had to cook my own Thanksgiving dinner.

Red hair, Red face said...

I have 2 christams parties Manuel...One with the wankers I work with now and one with the wankers that let me go...apologies, I may not have the Friday feeling today....

Also, fair play to you, still off the smokes.

Gwynneth said...

Who knows what delights the weekend will bring, Manny ;-)

Manuel said...

bock: fingers crossed

medbh: I feel old this morning.....

steve: hopefully a Wii.....hehehe

silverstar: it's gonna be a tough one...

red hair: bwahahahaha you have fun now, y'hear!


gwynneth: crikey......is that a threat or a promise? sounds like a threat...

Vicky Rogers said...

ahh dont worry about it. Teay you must be talking about cassie from skins. i dont like her either she is always saying like wow cool and than she would float back to her own world. i have to say my guilty pleasure is watching skins. please dont hold this against me

red leeroy said...

They probably stood arguing with another stressed out waiter who just quit smoking and who was adamant that they hadn't booked a table, then the waiter went home and blogged about it with wit and humour?! Well it's possible.

sheepworrier said...

You were expecting Pamela Valentine maybe?

fatmammycat said...

*Pats Manuel on the shoulder*
Sorry old bean, jaysus, people should at least call and let you know they can't make it. SO bloody rude.

savannah said...

damn, what a way to end november! let's hope that december is bright, sugar! even having 2 tops, but consistent is better than only one or 2 large parties in these down times. i wish you steady times! xoxox

Tuesday Kid said...

That wee lad from skins is in another show now called Britannia High, he's now officially this generation's Darren Day (oh dear).

MikeTheWaiterDotCom said...

Yep, don't you hate when a large party is a no show ... and often they do show on a different night... and if it's a 7:30 reservation....you hold the table till eight, in case they're just late...by the time it's obvious they're not coming ... it's too late to seat the table... the waiter is the loser ... :( ... well, you gotta try to make up for it next time.
happy holidays... mw

Native Minnow said...

Ruh roh. I hope things pick up.

A.B. said...

Weird. I wonder what happened to your table of 10? Did another restaurant steal them?

Trekkie said...

YOU feel old? What the hell is/are 'Skins'?

A.C said...

A wii ...A games console would destroy my life I'd have to go into gamers rehab.

Lottie said...

Im so sorry I didn't show. I hope the paparazzi weren't too much to handle.
