One night at Boma we waited and waited and waited. We finally went to ask and they said the beeper wasn’t activated or something. They said they had called us but we were sitting about 30 ft from the podium, couldn’t have called all that loud. So we asked how long and was told “sorry, you have just to wait until the next table”. I was a bit annoyed. I talked to the manager and basically was saying this should not happen. So we get seated after 5 or 10 min. Food is good, everything is fine. We stuff ourselves silly and just when we are about ready to burst, a chef comes by with a dessert. He just drops it off with a smile and a nod. We are thinking “do they have the right table?” , maybe it was somebodies birthday and we got it by mistake. So we are sitting there feeling guilty and the manager comes by. He set it up. We thanked him, we didn’t know what it was, but we thanked him. They were deep fried oreo’s . So we talked for a bit, and took the whole thing home (BCV). I remember getting on the bus and the driver says “here’s my favorite passenger, she brought me a doggie bag”.:laugh:
So from that point on if we see a number of people who arrive after us but are getting seated we double check the beeper.
