let's say you're dining at a family style resturant (applebees, red robin, tgifriday's etc). your dining companion has been finished for quite a while but you are only 3/4 the way through your dinner. your waitress comes by, asks if you'd like any dessert or if there's anything she can bring, then after you both say no, she leaves the check. would this bother you? i had a table tonight that was SO bothered by this senerio that the slower eater came back to the restaurant and spoke to me about it. at length. she was nice enough, but i tend to be a little sensitive (understatement :shame and now it's really bothering me. i can't sleep. yes, i know i'm silly. i'm just curious if it's her personal mission to "educate" waitstaff about her pet peeve, or if it's something that really bothers people...b/c i just follow what i've been trained to do. thanks y'all.
