An old gentlemen and his elderly wife were told that there would be a 45 minute wait for a table at a busy restaurant, because they had had turned up there without having made 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, so he spoke to the restaurant manager and as a result the elderly couple were seated almost immediately.
Well 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.
