    Celebrity Perks that backfire and Warm Your Heart

    FM 100.7 (radio station) was doing one of their "is anyone listening" bits
    this morning. The first one was, "Ever have a celebrity pull the 'Do you
    know who I am' routine?

    A lady called in and said that when she was visiting her cattle rancher
    Uncle in Billings, MT a few years ago, they went to dinner at a restaurant
    that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes. Lots of
    other rancher types and their spouses were already waiting.

    In comes Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. They want a table. The hostess says
    they'll have to wait about 45 minutes. Jane Fonda asks the hostess if she
    knows who she is. "Yes, but you'll still have to wait 45 minutes." Then
    Jane says, "Is the manager in?"

    The manager comes out, "May I help you?"

    "Do you know who I am?" asked both Jane and Ted.

    "Yes, but these folks have all been waiting already and I can't put you in
    ahead of them."

    Then Ted asks to speak to the owner. The owner comes out. Jane again asks,
    "Do you know who I am?" The owner says, "Yes, I do. Do you know who I am?
    I am the owner of this restaurant and a Vietnam Veteran. Not only will you
    not get a table ahead of all of my friends and neighbors here, but you also
    will not be eating in my restaurant tonight or any other night. Good bye!..........

    Only in America, what a great country!

    Keep passing this on. May we NEVER forget the unprosecuted.
