That is a perfectly reasonable question to ask the hostess of a restaurant over the phone. Said nobody. Ever.
I went out for breakfast the other day with my son. We were driving up and down the boulevard looking for a specific place called "Les Filles du Matin". The caricature on their logo had caught my eye a while back; it reminded me of Judy Jetson, it was so cute. I had made a mental note to drop in there one day. However, it was nowhere to be found. That being said, we walked into another restaurant.
When the waitress came over to take our orders, I asked if they were new. The name did not ring a bell and I hadn't recalled seeing them here before. She answered that they had been here for a while, but but due to the high volume of calls they were receiving from male patrons asking if the waitresses were topless or dressed "sexy," they had to change the restaurant name. They change the name from "Les Filles du Matin" to "Choco Coco".
I had to ask...why on earth would they be receiving those kinds of calls? The reason - apparently if you open up a breakfast place next to a bar, some people naturally assume that clothing is optional. Huh?? On a main boulevard of a suburb? Located next to Videotron and Pizza hut??
I didn't think that this type of knuckle dragging moron still existed. I can't imagine how creepy those calls were and how the owners must have felt each time these imbeciles would call in the morning for a cup of coffee and their jollies on the side.
It takes all kinds, folks.
