Complexity is not your friend

hostess sign
So, do I get to sit or what?

We’re used to being greeted by signs at restaurants if the host or hostess is busy. They often say “seat yourself” or “please wait to be seated.” This sign, however, was a first for us. Someone obviously thought long and hard about how this should be worded.

So, how do we know who the host is, and what should we do after he or she is seated?
