Waiting Hovering here and there I'm constantly aware of my boss's aggravated eyes. His look repeatedly falls on the customer that just won't leave. One Mr A. Rush who reserved by phone two months ago the loveseat, the most popular and secluded table at Expectations, this tiny side street eatery owned by the guy with the eyes, my always-irate boss - Angry Dan. It's been almost three quarters of an hour and it is obvious to any normal person that this Mr Rush's other half isn't going to turn up but still he refuses to budge, insisting to me that she will definitely be here.

I'm thrown off for a slight second but then I motion to the waiting guests whose eyes are like my mother's in Sainsbury's car park, scanning for the next available place and I speak, 'Excuse me sir, I'm sorry to say but this is a restaurant and I appreciate that you have pre booked this table but we have other...' Suddenly he stands and offers his right hand. With his other he pulls out what looks like a Dictaphone from his jacket pocket. I'm in a daze as he tells me he's from The Standard and is mightily impressed with my patience and understanding. Angry Dan makes a beeline guessing trouble only to be corrected by this amazingly sober reporter praising me and assuring us his review of Expectations will be excellent.
