So much can go wrong on your night out...
Dining out can be a special event to you, but it may be such a run-of-the-mill event for others that they ruin it for everyone else. Their loud, frequent laughing, ignorance of how disruptive their children are being, or arguing with the waitstaff to the point of harassing them can bum you out when you’re just trying to enjoy a nice meal. These people have some major issues with other diners, and they want you to learn how not to act when you’re eating out.
Loud live music to the point where everyone is just yelling so the music gets louder and everyone gets louder and it just doesn’t stop… help me… (Rad_Ben_Danklin)
Trust me, the wait staff hate it too. I used to waitress at a place that had monthly band nights and it was the worst. Not only was the place packed and we were running around constantly, but by the end of the night I had no voice from screaming myself hoarse trying to take everyone’s orders and talk to the customer. It’s impossible to even hear what people are ordering. (LadyEmry)
I just want control over the pepper grinder, instead of having someone come and pepper my food for me. I won’t mess it up if I do it myself, honestly. (prefix_memory)
A local restaurant here has regular sized black pepper grinders on every table, yet still come over with the giant oversized one to offer it. And I accept every time because I feel there’s a secret higher grade of pepper I’m unaware of that the reserve for the big one. (TrashbatLondon)
I was at the Weber grill and ordered a steak and it was delicious however the steak knives they had might as well have been a butter knife, it just made my initial impression of the tenderness/toughness of the steak all wrong.
It happens all the time too. I’m just so used to easily slicing into a steak or any other meat at home with nice knives that when the knife is tearing the meat more than slicing it it just feels off like it’s a lower quality cut that I’m paying three times the cost of what I do at home. I’ve honestly debated bringing in my own knife to places like that, but I don’t want to be that guy. (MEatRHIT)
