This Really Bugs Me

When people ask me if I can do a favour for them. Last night someone asked me that while my dinners were just getting ready to be taken out to the table. I wanted to deliver them and someone asks me that question.

The person wanted me to water their table. By the time that person asked me that and I had to think about it she could have done it herself.

Anyway the host did it who overheard her request. I ran my food. It takes less than 30 seconds to water your table.

I never ask anyone to water my table. In fact I rarely ask for help at all. And to add to that if you want me to watch your table while you go out for a smoke ask another smoker. That way it is a fair tradeoff.

This person had the nerve to get all pissy with me afterwards for not running out there and watering her table.

Too bad.........

Hell yeah that bothers the crap outta me. My girlfriend told me LAST NIGHT that the expression I use the most is "I don't like to be bothered." And it's true, I give it back the same way too, like to do it myself so people don't expect anything back. Water your own damn table!!

Hey, did you hear about the CEO who allegedly broke a waiter's finger for mistakenly bringing the bill to a table last Saturday night?
