Guess Who

lil while reader, first time poster [although i've commented]

my sister and i went to an ihop a couple weeks ago, no big deal.

we get seated and told that someone would be with us in a few moments. okay, no big deal. it was about 7pm or so, not too busy but not dead either. no one came, and it was getting a bit of a line [we could see them from our table] eventually about half an hour later [we timed it] with STILL no service [no one even came to get our orders or anything] and even after trying to get the attention of a nearby waitress who was just wiping off a table [was merely going to ask her if she knew who was to be our waitperson for the evening] ... still nothing. the waitress ignored us [we were in a booth, she was at the table right next to us]. we just stood up and walked out. as we were walking out, we saw about 6-8 people just standing around, near the doors to the kitchen, not doing anything but talking. we warned the others in line about what happened, but no one else walked out.

we went to perkins instead, told them why the slightly sour faces, and got excellent service from them. [we normally get really good service from this perkins anyway but this was better than normal, maybe they were trying to make up for ihop?] ... excellent enough that they got a 6 dollar tip [the total was barely even 15 bucks lol]

does anyone think we would have been in the wrong [or, at worst i guess, posted about in customers_suck] for asking to see a manager about what happened at ihop?
