I've been an EA for the past 11 years. I work with a great man who is very busy and often times he has to take clients out to a fancy restaurant. Usually, he's on top of things but sometimes he needs a last minute reservation at a really nice or busy place in order to close a deal. We work in a public company.
At first I used to get all frustrated and calling restaurants like crazy until I found a little site that allow me to get a reservation at the last minute by paying for it. Not much only $5-$15 bucks.
