    This is a true 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 pull 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, Montana, she had occasion to go to dinner at a restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait that evening was about 45 minutes, with many ranchers and their wives sitting and visiting while they waited.

    All eyes turned to the door when Ted Turner and his wife Jane Fonda (now his ex-wife) came in the restaurant and wanted a table. The hostess politely informed them the restaurant has a first come, first served policy but that they should have a table for them in about 45 minutes.

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

    The hostess answered, "Yes, but you'll still have to wait 45 minutes."

    Then Jane Fonda demanded to speak with the manager. When the manager came
    out, he cordially asked, "May I help you?"

    "Do you know who we are?" both Ted and Jane asked.

    "Yes, of course I do. 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, Ms. Fonda, I certainly do. And 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 night. Goodbye."

    Maybe there is some justice, after all.

    Being a viet nam vet I take my hat off. I hope its true, if not I hope all the diner owners in Monatana are listening. At least feed her the scraps those fine people in the diner dropped on the floor. Excuse my bitterness.

    I don't believe erumor or snopes or any of the other liberal sites. It's another way the liberal front is trying to keep a handle on their out of control weirdo's.( I wanted to say perverts, but you can't say it because it isn't politically correct and we know who introduced and enforces the politically correct.-- correct again, the perverted liberals. Next we'll be having religion police like Saudi Arabia does.)

    I could only hope that it was true.
    Jane Fonda and Ted Turner can both rot in hell.

    Nice story but it's an old myth that never happened- I used to frequent the place where this was suppose to have taken place.

    Give it a rest!

    Jane has paid her debt, applogized forever and is more conserviative than you may think.
