This one's been bugging me for awhile. I absolutely love this little sushi place across the street from the store I work at, it's my number one place to go when I eat out. One night, we go there at around 9 and the place is packed, we consider going elsewhere but decide to tough it out. There are a couple tables open (about 3 in a place that holds maybe 20) so we get seated immedietly. 10 minutes pass. The waitress walks by, I start to ask for a menu, she cuts me off saying "Just a moment," without even stopping or looking at us, she just hurries by. It almost seems now that she's purposely avoiding us. The tables are set up in a square, and rather than going straight down the isle where we're sitting, she'll walk over to the next isle, around, and back up, where she walks twice as far to get to two tables behind us. 5 more minutes have passed.

Finally, Another waitress comes over who seems to know the people across from us, they chat for a minute. When they're done talking, the people at that table said that we were trying to ask for something. She gives us our menus immedietly, along with our tea, takes our order about 2 minutes after we've gotten our menus, and bring us miso soup within another minute. She jokes around and is really nice, and the food comes really quickly (considering how full the place is). We ended up leaving a $5 tip on a $10 meal-in cash, so that it won't be credited to the other lady if we're in her area (I don't know how these things work).

I was so glad the second lady came along, the first lady was really a bitch. I don't consider being curtly told by a waitress who won't even look at me that she's too busy to give me a freaking menu. Every other time we've been in there, she's always there looking hostile. I don't know if it's just our appearance since it's always my boyfriend and me who are ratty looking college students, or if she's this rude to everyone, but I just find it unacceptable.
