Saturday, November 10, was my friend Judy's 70th birthday. My sister, another classmate, and I took her to Jefferson, Texas to celebrate, shop, and eat. About 1:30, we decided the lunch crowd had thinned so we went into a resturant called The Bakery on Austin Street. We ordered fairly quickly and began to talk. Several people came in, ate and left and we still did not have food after asking the waitress several times what was taking so long. After 45 minutes I asked to see the manager. When she came I inquired as to why it had taken so long to get our food. She said they had been busy!! I said that I thought that 45 minutes to wait was excessive. She said, "well, maybe you should go somewhere else to eat". I was taken aback but, since it was 2 P.M., and we were starving, we waited. BIG mistake, the food was not warm, and the chicken fried steak was greasy. When a man came in that was appeared to be the owner, I asked to see him and told him what had transpired. He said and I quote, "we serve good food, and we don't want people like you in here, so GET OUT"!!! This is the first time in my 69 years that I have ever been thrown out of anything!!! Well, as the say, "there is the first time for everything"!!! We fould out later that he had been the Mayor of Jefferson at one time. WOW!
