Last night was the first time me and DH had been out alone together in months. We were so excited to just spend time together alone. Being a Wednesday night, the restaurant was a bit slow so I made a point to mention to the waitress when she was talking to us that we had just had our 3ird child about 3 months ago and this is the first time we had been out alone since. I made the point to mention because already she was a bit chatty and seemed to be lingering a lot.
I was hoping she would get the hint but clearly she didn't. We didn't engage her in conversation when she would come by the table, every 5-10 minutes at least but still she would talk and talk. She asked DH how his food was and when he said it was good she told us about the time she was here on a date who had ordered DH's meal and then told us how disastrous the date was.
She was defiantly bored and it seemed like she was the only younger server on that night so I can see why but dude, we are on a date, leave us alone.
When I went to the bathroom, I pulled aside another server and explained what a pain our server was being but that didn't seem to change much.
So and the end of the meal, we got the check, it was $68.63 so I told DH to add only a .37 tip.
There have only been a handful of times that I have not left a generous tip but this is deffinatly one of them.
We DID tell her several times that we were fine and would let her know if we need anything
We did make it plane we wanted to be left alone, we did everything but yell at her to get away which we didn't want to do because we didn't want to piss her off while she was handling our food.
She was using us as her personal entertainment. She went on and on about herself all night long, it was obnoxious.
