|Lunch is served.|
I went to a little cafe for lunch recently, and when I got there, the hostess seemed baffled by my presence as she proclaimed, "There's a wait list, sir." Really? A wait list? That's a little self-important, don't you think? It's just a wait. A wait list implies it's going to take a year and possibly several deaths before I'll have the opportunity to receive what I'm requesting. There was literally one couple in front of me.
