Rude Things People Do In Minnesota Restaurants
I was eating at a restaurant the other day when a man sitting next to our table pulled out his hanky and blew his nose as hard as humanly possible. I can’t even describe the sound, but there was blockage that was cleared – It was gross. You should probably excuse yourself to the restroom to blow your nose.
We asked our audience what other things they want diners to stop doing inside Minnesota restaurants and got hundreds of comments from customers, servers, and bartenders. Check out some of the most popular annoyances below and chat with us on our app to let us know what bothers you when you’re eating out.
Minnesotans Want People to Stop Doing These Things in Restaurants
KIDS GONE WILD!
Customers and servers chimed in and the top response from both was kids ruining the restaurant experience.
Kicking, screaming, running all around… we’ve all seen kids misbehaving at restaurants.
I don’t even get mad at the kids though.
To me, it’s the parents that aren’t paying attention or letting their kids run wild that really bother me.
GET OFF YOUR PHONE!
No one wants to hear you talking on the phone. The person you’re talking to probably doesn’t even want to hear you. Try texting.
Speakerphone and Facetime were especially annoying to people.
RUDE! Minnesota servers weighed in with things that bother them.
You’re probably a jerk if you shake your glass of ice to let your server know that you’re ready for a refill.
Tap your debit/credit card on the bar to let your bartender know you’re ready to pay. Yep, jerk move.
Stuffing used napkins in your cup… Yeah, that actually makes their job harder.
Leaving little or no tip – If you can’t afford to tip you probably shouldn’t be going out in the first place.
