I'm useless at booking tables at restaurants.

The chain ones are all bookable online (in theory; in practice, it's another matter). The non-chain ones — that is, the ones I actually want to eat at — usually only respond to phone calls.

I hate making phone calls to anyone for any reason. Restaurants are a particular unfavourite, as I don't know when to phone and it's invariably the case that when I do phone they don't answer. I have to keep trying and eventually three or four hours they answer and are only taking bookings for tomorrow. However, if I ring them the day before then they think I want to book a table for that day instead and they get snotty about it.

We went to a chain restaurant today, Frankie & Benny's. It's going downhill, but at least that means we don't have to book a table.
