seating the guests
where would you like to sit？
we would like a table by the window so that we can en－joy the view of the lake.
i'm sorry， sir. the window tables have all been taken.
what about one that is further back but still offers a view of the lake？
would you follow me，please？
it's number 14 and your waitress will be with you right away.
i'm sorry，the house is full now.
but if you would like to wait you are more than welcome to do so.
