Random Rant: Restaurants
First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day!!
I haven’t written a post since right after my wedding. Let me just tell you, it’s been wonderful. The husband keeps saying, “you’re my wife,” and that puts a smile on my face.
We have been enjoying our honeymoon and are glad the weather in Chicago is warming up ever so slightly for the rest of the week. Now on to my rant.
We just had Valentine’s Day dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Chicago. The food is always delicious. The service is always good.
One thing that really grinds my gears is when everybody who works in the restaurant stops by my table. I’m all for attentive service, but I can’t stand being constantly interrupted in my meal.
If I’m paying $600 for my meal, then by all means, send everyone from the bus boy to the manager to come kiss my ass. But if it’s just a regular $100 dinner, leave me alone. If I’m seeming to enjoy an intimate dinner with my husband, and were both grinning from ear to ear, Leave. Us. Alone.
After chatting with 6 different patrons and employees, I’ve had my fill. Thanks for the dinner, but leave me alone. Focus on people who look unhappy. Those are the folks writing fucked up Yelp reviews on your establishment.
Now that I’ve had my rant, I feel better, and now I will get back to enjoying my first Valentine’s Day as a married woman.
