    Currently its restaurants and haircut places making me wait long enough that I give up and leave because they're handling the online orders and people who "check in" online first. You have/had a paying customer directly in front of you, if the other people didn't show up first that isn't my problem. Or shouldn't be.

    I agree that would be frustrating, but I think that's just the nature of the online reservation beast. Unless they leave themselves an out (in fine print), their agreement probably means they have to block out that time for the online customer if they guarantee that appointment.

    It is frustrating to finally be the next customer up in line at Chipotle only to have them insert a large online order in front of you. If I walked in and saw 10 people in line in front of me, I would probably just say today's not the day and move on to another place. I do feel bad for anyone who has to staff an eating establishment in this current environment.

    I made reservations at restaurant here recently; we eat there several times a month and the owner knows us. He's had a tough row with the pandemic and all that crap.

    We were chatting away while walking up to the door. When I opened it was confronted by the back of a large guy; couldn't even get in the door; think, 'sardines in a can'. I left my friends on the sidewalk and 'pardoned' my way into the receptionist and told him we had a 7:00 res for four and was told that a TOUR BUS had pulled up unexpectedly with 65 passengers and that the 'house was packed'. He then asked if we could come back later ... I told sure, but not anytime soon. I'll call the owner tomorrow.

    Near the big river.
    Went to the Doc yesterday for a sinus infection. Sign on door now says Appointments Only. It was 8:00 AM they said first available was 9:30. Sat down, They called me at 8:02 and said 8:00 didn't show so come on in.

    Really, had to wait 2 minutes and walk across the waiting room...TWICE!!

    What is our world coming too!

    New one this week. Screen went out on the "infotainment system" in my Charger Tuesday. Dealers won't call me back, so off to order one online. Only 2 places carry these online apparently, and they have a 3 week backorder, to the cost of $1600. So I can still listen to the radio, but I can't see what station I'm on(presets got wiped when I disconnected the battery to see if that would fix it), can't see what time it is, can't see what temp I have the HVAC set on, etc...

    I thought I would indulge a little since I live such a clean life. Headed to the Oreos and they looked rather skimpy. No prob, checked the double stuffed and same thing. But, right next to them was Mega stuffed that used to be doubles. Walked on to cheapos for the day. It's as bad as TP now
