I bet he will eat everything, and lick the plate clean too...

very good post,,,a marriage is more compromise than appeasement...

Default Called to make a reservation and they asked me to call back

yeah, yeah, first world problem. But I'm still a little annoyed. I called a restaurant a few minutes ago so a little after 11 am local time. Said I wanted to make a reservation and they asked what day - I said for this upcoming weekend, and was asked to call back because "it's the lunch rush."

This was a time when it was convenient to call and I thought not even 11:30 was early enough that it wasn't during the main lunch hour. Just not the kind of customer service I'd expect, esp. since this is a nicer restaurant, not a casual place.

Am I overreacting or was this a miss on their part?

Yes, you're overreacting.

Yeah - bad timing. Call around 3-4 PM.

Yes, you're overreacting. You may have been speaking to someone who isn't accustomed to taking reservations. They may have been short staffed. They may have just had a large party show up unexpectedly, also expecting a certain level of customer service. After all, if you were a customer actually present in the restaurant, wouldn't you want their attention on you, rather than on someone planning for the weekend? The person on the phone felt you would get better service if they called you back later.

A person in person is more important than a person on the phone.

Well, nowadays, sadly NO, but in this case yes.

Yes, it's annoying. That's why I like to make my reservations online, preferably OpenTable.com, so I don't have to deal with a busy staff.

I was just about to suggest that plus you can make the reservation any time you want, even at 3 A.M.
