We had a party for a friend in the tea room. The room is lovely, decor sweet and time evocative. They have plenty of beautiful hats for patrons to play in.
What they lack is the flexibility it takes to give customer service. The tables were set and we waited for the birthday girl. No service until she showed up- we played with hats and picked our seats. We fineally asked and could have punch while we waited. We then had to explain that an extra guest had come- we were fine with sharing food, we just needed an extra place setting.
This is when the fury began. We took one place setting so the one was not alone at a table, but the tea nazi insisted that four move from the head table. That left three at the head table? And why was there room for one at another table? And we at the little table were given left overs, no tea for us, no condiments either. Meanwhile the head table with four had two trays ( for six, originally) and everyone at " real" tables got seconds and left with to- go boxes. Oh, and there were twenty unused teapots around. Everyone, including us, were full and had alot to talk about. The food was good, really. And we did enjoy ourselves. Just don't throw a wrench in this womans plans. She can't take it. Not without taking someone down with her.
