Yesterday we decided to have lunch today at Burj Alhamam restaurant so i called the restaurant and I reserved a table for the family as I usually would. He then said ‘yes sir its available for that many people at that time, but there is one request, you have to come now and pay a non refundable KD20 to complete your reservation’ i said what? why should i come today and tomorrow? i will come tomorrow and in case I wanted to cancel i will call you, don’t worry. he replied .. ‘Sorry sir this is the only way. Its our policy in every Eid.’ and yes i ended up going and paid the KD20 for the table.
