X’mas eve dinner

So it was decided that we were to have dinner together this evening. It was after all, Christmas eve. Simply another excuse to pamper ourselves and fill our tummies I say but my mum insisted that it was one chance we could all have dinner together.

So my dad started making phone calls to restaurants to make a last minute reservation. Like we do every single year, not learning the lesson.

“Hello, can you transfer me to your coffee house or restaurant line?”

“Of course sir, please wait a moment.”

The person manning the line probably got this the entire week.

“Hi, XYZ coffee house, how can I help you?”

“I would like to check if your restaurant will be having a christmas dinner buffet tonight?”

“Yes we are sir,” the lady replied.

My dad then gave us a thumbs up sign, “Ok, I would like to book a table for 4.”

“Sorry sir, but all our tables have been fully booked for dinner.”

Dad’s expression made a 180 degrees change.

“Then why didn’t you tell me that directly,” he flared up. “instead of wasting my time talking to you I could have made a call to another restaurant!”

And he slammed the phone.

Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you all have fun tonight.

Addendum: Evidence that your friend have too much free time to do this on MSN.
