I'm Worried !

That i may be turning into a Grumpy Old Man ( I hope not ).

On Tuesday evening , my O.H. and i decided to visit Sabores Restaurant, which is one of our favourite's in the area.

Then i remembered the recommendations on here, which were vey favourable about Ali Baba's.

So, we decided to have a look at their menu .

We climbed the steps , and in front of us was a stand with their menu on.

As soon as we started looking at the menu ( which looked very good , for choices and price ) , the young Chinese Waitress came out front , holding the door open for us , and said - "Table for Two" ?

I explained very nicely , that we were just looking at the menu and thanked her .

She stood there , still holding the door open and staring at us .

This must have lasted at least 2/3 minutes, while we were looking at the menu . We started feeling uncomfortable .

My O.H. and i felt pressured , and as a result of this young lady's persistance , we thanked her and walked away ( back to Sabores ).

But for her action , we would have gone in , and tried this restaurant .

So , am i a Grumpy Old Man - or not ?

I don't know you so you may well be Grumpy and Old! LOL but I do understand what you mean and maybe if you were younger you may have been more adventurous and you will never know what delights the young Chinese waitress could have had in store for you! ;) ;)

It seems like quite a common thing to do in Asia, in the same way that when you walk into a shop a sales assistant will attach themselves to you like a limpet and try to sell you anything that you so much as glance at. I suppose they think it will encourage you to buy, but for me it just puts me off and I make for the door as quickly as possible.

Maybe it’s a cultural thing?
Anyway, there’s nothing wrong with being a Grumpy Old Git, especially when people want your money.

Pete.

My OH would tell you (and I disagree) I’m a fully paid up member of the grumpy old git club as well and I fully agree with your post. So get used to it when she says I’m a grumpy old git I just tell her less of the old.....then I run.... well as fast as my arthritic old hips will let me but glad I’m not alone perhaps we should start a club
