after work a bunch of us headed to murphy's for beer o'clock. i'm not sure that nerd friday is supposed to start with a few beers, too many french fries, and a balloon man, but i like it.
i also like the fact that we can always get a table here -- although i was really hoping we could get an outside one today, it was like summertime here in san francisco.
what i don't like is that our service is always spotty. tonight, the waitress took a bajillion years to retun with my credit card. everyone had to split, and i said i'd stay and deal with the check (they gave me cash, i'm nice but not free beer o'clock nice). a thousand years later i finally got up and went hunting for her. she was nowhere to be found, but a busboy said he'd hunt her down for me. another thousand years (i aged really well don't you think?) i finally got my credit card back. if i was more paranoid i might start checking my statement on an hourly basis, but i'm too trusting (and lazy) to do that.
