While I understand your point, the fact that you can get in to the calendar (if you try for days and days and finally get lucky), try to select a time and then not have any available is ludicrous. Once into the calendar, you should have a lock on whatever times are available.
this doesn't make any sense. is it really that important to get into this stupid restaurant that you are going to fire off this many e-mails to some developer who really, really doesn't give a shit that you aren't going to be able to go eat your poncey umami-scented scallop fetuses or whatever? they got things to do! a thought: maybe if you weren't harassing the developers all day with your "look at me i'm old and don't understand how the computers thing works" nonsense, they would have time to finesse the code and improve the speed on the site!
not that it would improve the speed on your crippled, arthritic, old man fingers, or your comprehension of calendars, which is really the bit that needs to be improved.
I THINK I HATE NEW YORK BUT EVERYWHERE ELSE IS WORSE!*
* except staten island which is made of ponies and sunshine.
UPDATE: staten island is technically in new york?!?! wonders never cease with this magical island!
