,,,Now, you can be seated downstairs!



Im talking again about the well known outing place in Amman... the one that has all this strange reservation policies....

And as we decided to go there yesterday... I was shocked as one of the guys who are responsible for all the reservation issues was explaining to us- me and my friend- how things work,,,

He said '' on the phone when you call to do the reservation, we wouldn't know you personally, and this makes it hard since it means we don't know your age... etc! And for this reason we tell you we can make an 'unlocated' reservation only...
But now since you are here and we can see that 'mashalla' ... your looks, outfits,,, you deserve to be seated downstairs... !!!!''

What a sick disgusting strategy...!!!!

    I'd be tempted to tell that guy, "Good thing God's reservation system doesn't work that way..."

    OK.."cracking my fingers"..here goes nuthen!
    Since I'm not in Amman..which well known place with a strange reservation policy are we talking about?
    Since I'm not in amman..does not being in amman qualify for getting a reservation? that's strange!
    but then again, what are the strange reservation policies? u need to know certain languages? do u need to have a minimum GPA..see here's the problem..in Jordan..some people have the illusion that when there's segrigation..couples only..girls only..absar shoo only..this makes them classy..I just got back from New York..had a blast..reservations were made on the phone..regardless of looks..gender or political afinity..and people are respected..as long as they're respectful..in Jordan..and to be more geo-socially accurate..west amman..some people get their respect by choosing the people who are ready to pay them to sit on their chairs..drink their half ass coffee..and smell their smoke contaminated air..
    Ignorence is dangerous..the illusion of knowledge is even worse!

    I hate those snobs at restaurants, I was making a reservation on the phone for ten people for an early dinner and the guy on the phone, asked me are you relatives ? or colleagues? what is it to you !! after I informed him that we are friends he asks me is every one going to eat ? if someone does not eat they have to pay the minimum charge !! reservations in Jordan suck !!

    Averroes.. In order to get a reservation or to enter a place you need to be asked so many questions and need to be examined etc.. it's so annoying and it's not even worth it!

    tamara... hahaha this is hilarious! Are you relatives or colleagues!!!! what difference would that make.. they're just stupid and come up with all the stupid reasons to give you every single reason not to call them again!!! And what's with the 'are you all going to eat' question?? ... this is another 'nahfeh' from our respectable outing places!

    Tamara..I'm actually surprised that he didn't ask you what each and every one of you would be wearing..and gave you some fashion tips!
    When an ignorent person gets a degree of control..they kill themselves misusing it.

    have a picnic!

    Averroes... picnics are amazing.. and it's something different at least! BBQs are the best... you get to eat really good food, enjoy the weather, view, all the preparations and you won't have people getting on your nerves with the stupid reservation policies!
