Yes, it is sort of trite to complain about wait staff atÂ restaurants. Â Lord knows they take enough flack from rude customers. Â But we’re trite people, if you hadn’t noticed from reading this comic.
This is somewhat inspired by a recent New York Times piece giving fifty directives to waiters. Â That in turn reminded me of several personal incidents where I couldn’t get a waiter to shut up long enough to listen to me order. Â And you, dear reader, are all the richer for it.
