Done Eating, Not Dining

Ok, so chances are if I do this at work I'm trying to make you hurry up. What you have to understand is that I make most of my income in tips and if you're taking foreeeever to eat it's better for me to risk getting a very small tip from you as long as I can turn the table.

If you want to avoid feeling rushed, try making reservations during the slower times of day. Most servers aren't going to rush you if there isn't anyone waiting for the table.

Foot Fetish

huh. i'm from northern minnesota, and most of the homes around here are no shoes. most people around here are taught that it's just good manners to remove your shoes at the door. it's not uncommon to see someone with a pair of nice, clean shoes that they will change into at the party. and hey, it saves you the trouble of trying to walk over sod in heels.
