"This has never been a problem before."
"You've never walked up with eight people before."
"Oh come on, you can do it for me."
"Listen, ever since you've became friends with a certain person here you've constantly brought more an more people. Stop it. You walk up with one or two people ok, more than that and your waiting in line like everyone else."
"Well, you know he's waiting for me in there."
"I'm sure he is, but he's not waiting for all these other people. Believe me he'll agree with me. I can do you and one but the rest of your group will wait."
At times certain people need to be reminded that they really aren't that special. The rock star line is for friends and family of employees and the bar. It's not to show off to your friends about how great you are or how special you are.
The little blonde leaned in to my ear, whispering, "Come on, don't make me look bad to my friends."
I don't bother to whisper, "Hun, if these are your friends they won't mind waiting like everyone else because they just wanna hang out with you and don't care about the status quo."
At this she rolled her eyes, spun around, and told her group, "Come on, let's go across the street until this line dies down."
Five minutes later, Marvin comes out to the door.
"Hey man, you wouldn't let Mary in?"
"Actually, I would let Mary in. I just wouldn't let her take the seven people that were with her in and she found that to be an insult."
"Whoa, she had seven people with her?"
"Yea man, I told her I'd let her and one in but the others would have to wait but she didn't think that was very nice."
"That's messed up. Oh well, she just called me saying you were being all rude to her and that you wouldn't let her in. She didn't say anything about having all those people with her. Oh well, screw her, she's not that great. Ha, ha.."
