This is one of the best things I've read in years!!! Let's all go there for dinner!!!

Montana Restaurant:


This is a great 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 come 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, MT, she had occasion to go to dinner at a restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes; many ranchers and their wives were waiting.

Ted Turner and his ex-wife Jane Fonda came in the restaurant and wanted a table. The hostess informed them that they'd have to wait 45 minutes. Jane Fonda asked the hostess, "Do you know who I am?" The hostess answered, "Yes, but you'll have to wait 45 minutes." Then Jane asked if the manager was in. When the manager came out, he asked, "May I help you?" "Do you know who we are?" both Ted and Jane asked. "Yes, 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, I do.

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 other night. Good bye."

Only in America , is this a great country, or what?

To all who received this, it is a true story and the name of the steak house is:

Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse, 204 W. Main, Manhattan , MT 59741, (406) 284-6929

If you ever get there, give this fellow a sharp salute, buy a steak, and tip the waitress. Keep passing this on. We should never forget our number one national traitor!

Though I'm a Vietnam era Vet and no Fonda fan, this story is like a lot of the internet drivel - it's hogwash!

Ted Turner has/had a ranch in Nebraska. I met him twice and he was standup. Met him when he was in the local sporting goods store and once when he was in a local café.

Jane Fonda I would walk across the street to keep from meeting her.
