It's Time To Go

What is the deal with customers who sit and chat at their table well past closing time? I mean if it is 10 or 15 minutes after closing, no big deal. But today, we had a table of three that stayed an hour and a half after we closed. An hour and a half! Were these ladies completely oblivious of their surroundings and didn't notice that they were the only ones left in the establishment except for the staff? Didn't they notice the music had been turned off? Didn't they see all of the servers polishing the silverware out on the floor? Didn't they have anywhere else to go?

It's Sunday afternoon at 4:30. We have been working all day serving you. Chances are we were up all last night serving you too. Don't you get it? We want to go home! People who linger in bars and restaurants like this obviously have never had a service industry job in their life or else they would understand that the staff wants to go home after their shift.

It's always the Sunday brunch crowd that pulls this crap too.
