Just found out it was first broadcast in 2011
found the French maitre d' guys faux sincerity really uncomfortable. Like when he was describing how to greet some customers 'oh, it's SO wonderful to see you back, how great. I have a special table for you over here'.
I know it's the game, but surely only the least emotionally intelligent people would fall for this shit. I'd never be back again Be polite, efficient etc but please crawl back out from the inside of my arse.
I'd prefer it if I was barely considered human in the eyes of the waiter or waitress. Robotic as possible please.
(also at least they're older now than they were then)
