Thumbs up Ted Turner and ex Jane Fonda---good story

Montana Restaurant








This is a great story! The radio station America FM was doing one of its


"Is Anyone Listening?" bits this morning.


The first question was, "Ever have a celebrity come up with the 'Do you know


who I am?' routine?"





A woman called in and said that a few years a go, while visiting her cattle


rancher uncle in Billings , MT , she had occasion to go to dinner at a


restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes;


many ranchers and their wives were waiting.





Ted Turner and his ex-wife Jane Fonda came in the restaurant and wanted a


table. The hostess informed them that they'd have to wait 45 minutes. Jane


Fonda asked the hostess, "Do you know who I am?" The hostess answered,


"Yes, but you'll have to wait 45 minutes." Then Jane asked if the manager


was in. When the manager came out, he asked, "May I help you?" "Do you


know who we are?" both Ted and Jane asked. "Yes, but these folks have been


waiting, and I can't put you ahead of them."


Then Ted asked to speak to the owner. The owner came out, and Jane again


asked, "Do you know who I am?" The owner answered, "Yes, I do. Do you know


who I am? I am the owner of this restaurant and I am a Vietnam Veteran.


Not only will you not get a table ahead of my friends and neighbors who have


been waiting here, but you also will not be eating in my restaurant tonight


or any other night. Good bye."





Only in America , is this a great country, or what?





To all who received this, it is a true story and the name of the steak house


is:





Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse, 204 W. Main, Manhattan , MT 59741 , (406)


284-6929

While I like the story, it's apparently not true.

I was hoping more for a 'Jane Fonda gets here face caved in' story.

I can promise you this:

I would NOT accept Jane Fonda and a number of other celebs I can't stand, in my shop as clients. Unless it would just be a terrible business decision. I wouldn't risk my business over it, but why would anyone let her in ahead of other customers? It's not like she would be coming back as return business. It's not like a small town restaraunt is gonna get flooded by more business because a great bitch ate there. Hell, she probably would have asked for the meal to be free too. That lady should be tried .................................... nvrmd.

I find it interesting how many people get just plain red in the face and agitated at the sight or sound of the words Jane Fonda. I am not choosing sides or voicing an opinion .....but that's just one deal that most Americans are not willing to forget after such a long time...interesting

In my case, it's one of many. But this thread happens to be about Jane Fonda. Ted Turner is the afterthought.

I can't stand Tom Cruise, Matt Damon and Alec Baldwin either.

And of course there are the Dixie Chics of the world...... Blah......

Matt Damon actually thinks the President can shoot off nukes on his own if he wanted to...... This idiot actually thinks he's Jason Bourne for real.

Ryan Leaf former NFL quarterback did the same thing at a resturant. My favorite come back for that question is " I am not a liberte to tell you who you are" Another Chargers tried the same stunt a couple of days ago with the police, he will probably be looking for a new team next season.

How bout this;


Have any of you ever tried to USE that line?



I did. "Uh.... Do you know who I am?"

Or, "You don't know who I am, do you?"

I've never gotten anything but a smart ass response.

It's always,,,,, "I dont' care who you are."

Or, "Ya, I know who you are. You're the guy who was just doing 75 in a 65 zone".

I am from Montana and Ted Turner and Jane Fonda are not well liked here. It would not surprise me if they aren't seated right away pr even refused service.

And if you get up to this area Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse, 204 W. Main, Manhattan , MT 59741 , (406)284-6929 is one of the best places to eat. I highly recommend it. There are a few great places up here.

If you are come to the area and need any info or just want to cruise let me know. Montana is a grate place to visit.

That Russian officer in Hunt for Red October wanted to settle down in Montana.

But, I'd LOVE to cruise on some of those wide open roads.
