Subject: Fwd: Dinner in Montana
This may have may the rounds before....
This is a great story! The radio station America FM was doing one of its
'Is Anyone Listening?' bits this morning. The first question was, 'Ever
have a celebrity come up with the 'Do you know who I am?' routine?'
A woman called in and said that a few years a go, while visiting her
cattle rancher uncle in Billings, MT, she had occasion to go to dinner at
a restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45
minutes; many ranchers and their wives were waiting.
Ted Turner and his ex-wife Jane Fonda came in the restaurant and wanted a
table. The hostess informed them that they'd have to wait 45 minutes.
Jane Fonda asked the hostess, 'Do you know who I am?' The hostess
answered, 'Yes, but you'll have to wait 45 minutes.' Then Jane asked if
the manager was in. When the manager came out, he asked, 'May I help
you?' 'Do you know who we are?' both Ted and Jane asked. 'Yes, but these
folks have been waiting, and I can't put you ahead of them.'
Then Ted asked to speak to the owner. The owner came out, and Jane again
asked, 'Do you know who I am?' The owner answered, 'Yes, I do. Do you
know who I am? I am the owner of this restaurant and I am a Vietnam
Veteran. Not only will you not get a table ahead of my friends and
neighbors who have been waiting here, but you also will not be eating in
my restaurant tonight or any other night. Good bye..'
