I was thinking this too. When we have needed to wait for our table we are subsequently called out as Jones*party and I do not have an issue with this. If I were called Jones* whilst at my table I would have an issue.

I always give my full name. I tend to totally ignore them when they call my surname.
The last people who regularly used my surname were my teachers. I ignored them as well!

We never actually ate there as I walked out
In fact we have ditched it 3 times this trip as there is always a 30+ min wait after the ADR time. I never wait
Id be glad you walked out if you ripped me a new one over something so trivial.

Yup exactly what happens with us. Its seems totally reasonable. Same happened in restaurants all over Orlando as well.

I just feel sorry for the poor girl if it's the usual thing to call the surname and you rip into her and then walk out , maybe I'm just too soft .
