     - Alright, now it's "head waiter". Jesus. The analogies here are tortured enough.  impeachdubya   Jul-14-07 04:38 PM   #75 
  - Because at this restaurant you have an elected representative.  mondo joe   Jul-14-07 04:30 PM   #67 
  - It's decided by popular demand  sandnsea   Jul-14-07 08:51 PM   #99

     - I read a poll last week where only 14% of diners said they would eat there, so  John Q. Citizen   Jul-14-07 04:49 PM   #80 
        - And yet the diners keep asking for the same waitstaff over and over again.  mondo joe   Jul-14-07 04:56 PM   #83

  - That was great!  StarryNite   Jul-14-07 05:36 PM   #85 
  - Yep - part of her problem is she does not see herself as a servant  Annces   Jul-14-07 05:39 PM   #86 
  - Or: the problem is you think she's YOUR servant.  mondo joe   Jul-14-07 09:06 PM   #101 
  - That has got to be  tbyg52   Jul-14-07 05:49 PM   #88
