You Sometimes Meet Famous People Waiting Tables


Recommended Posts

As many of you know, I wait tables. For the last year I've been at the only fine dining restaurant in my town, which is also the state capital. It's nothing to wait on a slew of senators, the Lt Governor, or a couple of Governors (not to mention Cabinet Secretaries yadda yadda). Occaisionally, we actually *do* get people who are famous out in the real world :P . Quite a few months ago, I had the pleasure of having Don Meredith seated at one of my tables. Granted, the name may not mean anything to some of you, but he was once a pro football player and was one of the commentators for Monday Night Football for many years in the 1970s (as well as the famed pitchman for Nestle Ice Tea).

Anyway, tonight I got to wait on the lovely Ms. Marcia Wallace who is in town to sign her new book at our local bookfair (which, believe it or not, is a rather big deal every year). Ms. Wallace is probably best known for her long-running role on The Bob Newhart Show in the 1970s (the secretary) as well as numerous guest appearances on a variety of prime-time series and game shows (most notibly on Match Game in the 1970s). Younger TV viewers will recognize her as the voice of Ms. Crabapple on The Simpsons. From firsthand experience, I have to say she is one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and she was surprised that I recognized her. She made a point of commenting on my surprising knowledge of pop culture.

Just a cool thing that happened to me tonight that I thought I'd share. :)
