An elderly gentlemen and his wife were told that there would be a 45 minute wait for a table at a busy restaurant, because they had had turned up without a reservation.
“Young man”, the elderly lady said to the waiter, “we are both 90 years old, we may not have 45 minutes”.
The waiter told them that he would see what he could do and as a result they were seated almost immediately.
It’s nice to have a happy ending for a change isn’t it, although I didn’t hear if they both made it to the end of the meal.
