  • I think it's rude when people accept or make calls on their cell phones at restaurants. Even if they are a couple of tables away, they have to shout over the restaurant noise, and we all hear their conversations.
  • I agree with Lyn. I can't stand people who just HAVE to make that phone call and when it rings, they should say I will call you back or leave the dining area. I just can't enjoy my meal listening to someone else's life story or conversation.
  • I think it is extremely rude when people bring outside food into a restaurant. When I was a kid, I either ate something from the menu at the restaurant I was taken to or I didn't eat.
  • i think its rude when people are very load in restaurants when you go for a quiet meal
  • When someone chews so damn loudly and smack their gums, I have to sit my fork down and wait.
  • Leave a poor tip.
  • There is a litany of rude behavior I would like to see eliminated! Cell phone conversations, screaming children, children who stand up in the booth and turn around and stare at you, blowing one's nose at the dinner table, loud conversations, picking one's teeth, coughing without covering one's mouth........... Good grief! How hard can it be to act nice for a short while?!
  • Parents let their kids scream, holler, run around, pull on my tablecloth, cry, and knock things over. AND they say nothing to them. When I enter a restaurant, if I see kids, I ask for another table. I don't dislike kids, but it seems parents are either unwilling or unable to teach them manners and control their behavior. Same goes for other public places. Teach your children when they are young, or they grow up loud, obnoxious, and ill mannered.
  • Swap the salt and the sugar
  • Cell phones are high on my list too, but letting ones children go unsupervised is right up there.
  • Talk or laugh really loud. Some people are just so into themselves. They just don't get it.
  • when people stare at you when you're eating
  • Other then cell phone...BLOWING YOUR NOSE at the table. ewe! Excuse yourseld and go to the bathroom. Who wants to hear that? That and the whole clearing your throat like you are about to spit up a lung oyster and swollow it again.......
  • Loud laughing and noise.
  • Unless it is a family type restaurant, I don't think babies and small children should be there. They're bored and everyone else is annoyed by the screaming and running.
  • Phone calls and staring get on my nerves.
  • burping or blowing their nose at the table.
  • Let their kids make a racket and run riot while I'm trying to enjoy my meal. If they can't behave, leave them at home!
  • It depends on the setting really. You honestly can't expect fine dining manners at a table in Chick Fil-a now can you? If I am paying for a nice meal, in a somewhat nice atmosphere... the atmosphere should be taken into consideration. I always ask for a booth in a corner and usually wait for one if I can't get one right away. Reason? Because it will set you up for less traffic, less interaction and less to have to deal with. Preventive medicine to avoid the inevitable stupidity that you encounter with any group of strangers forced to share a small space. My biggest pet peeve is when people you dont know, come up and ask you what you are eating and if it is good. I send them to the waitress and tell them to ask her. That... is her job, not mine!
  • I've seen two parents change their babies diaper right there at their table in the dining room at Ruby Tuesday's! The wait staff saw it and did nothing to stop them! Would you like to eat at a place like that?
  • Disgraceful behaviour
  • I waited tables all through college, and I must tell you that in my experience the overwhelming majority of rudeness stems from out of control children. If it's not the parents getting upset, it's the folks at the next table getting upset. It's positively shocking how some children rule over their parents.
  • Talking on a cell phone, I am sure a lot of others said that too.
  • Talking and laughing VERY loudly be it to others at their table or on a mobile. I was at a work dinner at xmas and a different work party (a few tables away) of girls were unbelevibly loud and drunk. To the point I wanted to smack them in the face to shut up. My young son called to say night and we couldnt hear each other over the racket. They were disturbing the whole resturant I guess loud belching n farting is pretty rude too (not to mention smelly hee hee)
  • I would vote for talking on cell phones. We took our daughter our to dinner from the time she was a baby. At 18 months we stopped - behaviour at that age is too unpredictable. We started again at 4 years old and her bahviour was impeccable. But we told her what was expected and if she did not behave next time she would stay home with a babysitter. It worked.
  • snotty people that bring there pooches in bags in and feed them bits from table thats rude too
  • Talk too loud on cell phones. Not discipline their kids.
  • floss their teeth..pick their nose! and the cell phones..yep!
  • Leaving the table looking like a hog trough.
  • Make out. This is a public restaurant, not a motel. You eat in a restaurant, you have sex in a motel. I do not want to hear your cellphone conversations. Some people talk so loud, they do not need a cellphone.
  • Foul language
  • leave shitty tips
  • Snap their fingers to get the waiters attention.
  • Letting their little darlings run around screaming.
  • stare at people
  • A group of people next to us one time kept burping all the time, no manners at all!!
  • A story as told to me: My husband was having difficulty in maintaining his sex drive(much to our dismay).I finally convinced him to go w/ me to a sex therapist.After a few visits and making little progress, the therapist gave me a small bottle w/ 3 capsules inside. "Open a capsule and sprinkle the contents on his mashed potatoes.If all works well within a few minutes he will not be able to control himself and will insist on making love to you...." The next evening as we sat down to eat supper I sprinkled the capsule's content on his potatoes... My God! Even before we finished our meal despite all my protests he threw me on the table and made love to me right then and there!!!!!!! There's only one drawback to this episode... We have been banned from ever eating at Denny's Restaurant ever again...
  • Sitting around talking on those damm Cell Phones ... It is so annoying that a person can't hear themself think ... I've been bothered to the extent that I've got up and walked out before even being served ...
  • Numero uno pet peeve: treating the waitstaff badly because they think they are powerless. You can tell a lot about the character of a person by how they weigh up the relative worth of a person and by how they treat people that they presume to be worth less than themselves. 2) Allowing children to behave badly, not teaching them manners, not paying attention to them. 3. Trashing the restrooms, not wiping up after themselves. Whatever happened to flushing? Or if you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat? 4. Getting drunk in a restaraunt and behaving like an a**
  • Blow their nose.
  • After the kids thing, it would have to be the perfume. Some women can't go anywhere, unless they bathe in the stuff! I make a loud complaint about not being able to smoke, when they seat someone stinking like that. I can't believe how angry I feel right now, just thinking of it. I appreciate yer on a date, but OMFG, I'm trying to eat FOOD here!!!
  • have there cell phones ring on as loud as it can go and it rings. Put that shit on vibrate man. also whiny kids.
  • picking their teeth at the table with a toothpick, using foul language, picking their nose, belching extremely loud
