When you go out for dinner are you clean or messy

November 4, 2006 5:46pm CST
I work in a teavern and when i am doing a 'floor' shift I am absolutley amazed at how messy people are. I have cleaned up a table that was covered in food, with gravy smeared all over the place. The salt and pepper in the middle of the table has been filled up with soft drink, there is food under the table. People even stuff rubbish into their glasses instead of putting it on the empty plate in front of them. So my question is - Are you a clean diner in a resturant or are you one of the messy people? and if you are messy why, and if so do you do that at home - why/why not?

I wonder how many people will say they're clean but their waiter or waitress would say otherwise. :) I used to be a waitress so I always do try to wipe my table and stack dishes before I leave.

I am very neat and clean, and I get what you mean. I worked at a fast food outlet before and I think people take for granted that there are always workers to clean up their mess after them. Very disappointing for todays society.

I used to waitress, so I'm always cleaning up! When I go out with my kids I make sure to pick up anything the may have dropped under the table. I expect my kids to use the same good table manners when we dine out or stay at home. I expect them to clean up after themselves at home, so same goes for eating out. I, however, go the extra step and stack and scrap the plates so it's easier for my server to pick up. Dorky, I know, but I can't help it.

I'm always clean. You're going out to eat in public, and no matter what kind of place it is, you gotta be classy
