Montana Restaurant- True Story

A woman said that a few years ago, 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, and 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 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.'
