My family went out to eat tonight because we were running errands all day and I didn’t want to cook. I’m tired and need to take it easy until after I have surgery so we went out. My sister in law is visiting us so we total five.
We chose Red Robin because it is a very family friendly restaurant, usually. The food is good and you can get fruit and veggies instead of fries. When we arrived it just started pouring down rain. So we ran inside and they welcomed us in but then after they asked how many we had in our party they got a little quite and upset.
“We have three adults and need two booster seats”
It took two of them to decide where to put us even though there was plenty of seating because we got there before the dinner rush even started. I think it was between 4:30 and 4:45. Each corner in the restaurant had a round booth so that makes four corners. Only one of them was in use.
The greeter told the person who seated us where to put us but she replied..
“I’m saving that for a FAMILY”
Umm, what are we?
I think a mom, a dad and aunt and two children qualifies as a family right. My husband told me the statement made him a little sad because he thought it was quite obvious that we were a family. What could have been the disqualifying factor, were we not big enough?
