The following 10 rules are posted as a service to restaurant workers everywhere who are too polite to say anything to rude and obnoxious patrons for fear of losing tips or even their jobs because some moron pitches a fit when they are called out for being stupid, rude or obnoxious.
- There are 4 kinds of toast, order one.
Order the one you want without asking, “What kind of toast do you have?”
- Shut up and look at the menu.
Blab to each other AFTER you order, don’t keep the waitress waiting.
- Don’t ask stupid questions.
If you need to know where the coffee was grown or the name of the hen who hatched the egg, eat at home.
- Don’t flirt with the waitress.
The same table of old men every day really? The line and the men get OLD fast.
- Control your kids.
I know you think they’re cute, they’re NOT, keep them quiet and sitting with you.
- Control your voice.
I know you think what you have to say is important, it’s NOT and saying it LOUD doesn’t make it any smarter, shut-up, others are trying to converse normally.
- Put your cell phone ringer on buzz.
No one wants to hear your crappy ring tone for 3 minutes while you fumble through your coat to find your phone blasting away.
- Don’t talk on your cell phone in the restaurant.
We don’t want to hear you blab. Go outside and spare us the boring details
- No video clips.
The rest of us do not want to hear your stupid YouTube video, save it for the taxi ride home and bore the driver to death
- Kids video games.
Just say NO and actually pay attention to your kids.
