|Annoying Thing Number 272: Blurry Waiters|
At least someone else agrees with us on the stroller thing: "Park slope parents are the worst!!!! Bringing their kids into the bar for happy hour, crying over a restaurant not having a kids menu, asking if they can bring their huge stroller into the restaurant, leaving a huge mess, with food all over the place, and saying sorry but leaving a small tip."
One reader thinks that threatening to take your table away if you don't confirm your reservation goes too far: "A reminder e-mail or call, with a request to be sure to cancel if you don't intend to keep the reservation, should be more than sufficient."
And one reader blames the customers for enabling all of these annoying occurrences: "These places are going to stop doing all these annoying things when people stop falling for it, when it hurts business, or becomes outmoded. If people would stop throwing money, and crazy amounts of it, to be treated this way, it would change the picture."
