We went out to eat at Chili's last night. Same Chilis we always go to, and we have never had a problem before...
So as we were looking through the menu, the waitress comes over and notices that my 3 year old had taken some sugar packets out of the little holder. So the waitress says "Oh do you mind if I take that away from her, I'm sure she's having a great time, but it's really a pain to put back." I should have said no, but I was like um ok, I know they are a pain because we always clean them up". We really do, we're not slobs. So I said to dh "I think that was a little rude, don't you?" and he agreed. We just brushed it off after that, maybe she was just having a bad day, annoyed with kids.... whatever.
So we eat our meal and as we are just about to pay, the lady cleans our plates up and my husband for some unknown reason grabs say "oh I wanted that" and my last chicken crisper off of my plate. So as the lady started to walk away I looked up and she was making a sarcastic "Yikes" face. She was definitely making fun of my husband. I told him and we both decided that she was just not a very nice person. So my very generous dh only tipped her 15% instead of 20%.
Was she being rude, or am I thinking too far into it? I know waitresses put up with some pretty crappy stuff from people sometimes.
