How about this? One of my very favorite restaurant skits by Steve Martin (from back when he was funny) . . . Oh, sorry, I just went to the Bahamas for the moment . . .
Oh, I really HATE that! When I worked as a waitress, I would always wait to be noticed, never just swoop in and interrupt, for any reason... that's so rude and annoying! I found that the customers would notice me right away and make a space in the conversation for me to talk without interrupting them. After all, it was to their benefit!Waitstaff interrupting a conversation I'm having with friends, whether in the middle of my sentence or a friend's, to ask something like "how does everything taste".
Oh my heck, you brought back a nightmare.For me there are a couple of things that don't really make me made, but do bother me a little.
1. Wait and cleaning staff that will stand just to the side of you or in a corner and stare at you.
My wife and I went out for a special evening on our anniversary to a local restaurant called Mulboon's. It came highly recommended. We chose a Monday night, as Monday nights are slow in Utah restaurants, and shared the restaurant with one other couple.When I was stationed in Italy...
A friend and I went to a restaurant, at a well known Hotel, to celebrate my birthday. First thing when we sat down at a nice central table, the Gentleman who seated us brought a glass of sparkling wine to each of us. We were so engrossed in our dinner (Very Good) and the bottle of wine we ordered...we lost track of time...until we noticed we were the only table there. The staff was a very discrete distance away and very patiently waiting for us to finish our wine and conversation.
Very civilized way to enjoy an evening. (and no I did not tell them it was my birthday)
Oh, man, you got me on that one.The worst thing a server can do? Why, fail to boot of course!
But that would be because I spend part of my time working for the IT department /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif
