A Los Angeles restaurant owner is fed up with no-shows and he is taking action! Red Medicine owner Noah Ellis is taking to Twitter to out people who make reservations and don’t show up. Ellis tweeted from the eatery’s account:
All the nice guests who wonder why restaurants overbook and they sometimes have to wait for their res should thank people like those below.

He then lists the no-shows by name and the time of their last reservation. So why did Ellis decide to shame the no-shows? He says they’re bad for business! Restaurants often have to overbook to make sure they fill their tables, causing long waits for the customers who actually do show up.
So what do you think about the restaurant calling out the no-shows on Twitter? Is it a good idea or not?
