Maury and his wife showed up to a very popular restaurant, but it was very crowded. Mrs. Maury went up to the hostess and asked, "Will it be long?"
The hostess appeared to ignore her and kept writing in her book. So she asked again, "How much of a wait?"
The hostess then looked up and said, "About ten minutes."
A short time later they heard an announcement over the loudspeaker, "Willete B. Long, your table is ready."
