13 Things You Should Never Do in a Restaurant
Arrive Right Before the Kitchen Closes
If a restaurant closes at 11, that doesn’t mean that you can show up at 10:50 and expect the staff to be okay with it. The staff has most likely had a very long and hard day, and there’s a ton of cleanup to do before they can go home. Don’t make them stay late just so you can eat.
Sit Down Before the Table is Cleared
Yes, the table is technically available, but you’re not going to get service any quicker if you sit down before it’s cleared. You’ll just make the busser’s job more difficult, and have to look at a whole bunch of dirty dishes.
Change Your Baby on the Table
Yes, some people actually do this. People have to eat off of that, and that’s just about the last thing that your fellow diners want to see… or smell.
Bring Your Dog
Bringing a service dog is one thing; bringing a tiny Chihuahua in your handbag and telling the staff that it’s your service dog is another. Restaurants are not places for animals, unless you’re sitting outside.
Lie About Allergies
If you have a legitimate food allergy, make sure you tell your server as soon as you sit down. If everyone at the table suddenly has gluten, dairy, eggplant, coconut, and avocado allergies, the staff will know that you’re making it up.

a bucket of misfortune on a Tuesday
Good day reader! How’s life treating you so far? Well, I hope it isn’t as bad as how it’s treating me right now. I know quite well how cruel life could be. I could say that I’ve been whipped in the ass, point blank, numerous times by life. I wanna pour my heat out on this post enumerating all the misfortunes I experienced today. There’ll be a list of things you won’t consider reading if you’re in a good mood, so I’m giving you a chance to back out and do something worth your while. Oh, so want to read on? Alright then, let’s start. First I woke up early, which is good coz I’ve been late MULTIPLE TIMES the past week, BUT the thing is I didn’t get enough sleep. They decided to fix the roof of my apartment and I hope you can experience first hand the noise they’re making. Rainwater’s been seeping through my ceiling so I reported it to the landlady who obliged to get someone to fix it AFTER OVER A YEAR of wiping the floor every time the slightest bit of rain would fall. Yes after over a year. Imagine the stress I’m feeling right now. And we haven’t even reached half of my list yet! After having dinner with former colleagues I went to the office to start my first work day for the week. I came in on time only to find out that I LOST MY FUCKING HEADSET! I work in a CALL CENTER, I take in CALLS so having a headset is a must. I probably managed to break half of the grammar rules ever established so pardon my atrocious mistakes. I couldn’t bare to go back and edit them. Let me continue. Oh you know what I don’t even want to go on. That’s how pissed I am. If you know me well you’re probably laughing now. A friend had a fit laughing at me when I told him everything that happened today. I’m so pissed that I was already thinking of googling a group of people who are planning to commit suicide and join them on their next gig, or should I say their first and final gig. My shift just ended and I left my tumbler in the office. I decided to buy myself a new Starbucks tumbler to remind me of this day. the day when bumuhos lahat ng kamalasan at sinalo ko ng buong buo! I have to stop now and reflect on the things I’m doing. Ponder about how I should fix my life and make the next days better than it is now. adios!
the first time I had a chance to meet Karen Francisco was during Visprint’s writers convention… my copy of Naermyth wasn’t with me that time… nasa hiraman… and because of my burning desire to let everyone know how good our local authors are pinahiram ko ng pinahiram yung book and other locally published books and comics na meron ako… hanggang sa ayun nagkawalaan na… yung iba di na nasoli… LOL… fast forward three years and tadaaaaaah another book signing event happened after all those that I missed in between… finally had the chance to buy a new copy and have it signed… #naermyth #karenfrancisco #fanboymodeON
