Went to dinner one Saturday night – a modest thing at a local shopping centre. Took a friend and we had drinks and a meal. The food was excellent and the staff pleasant. It is such a delight to be able to go to a local venue rather than traipse halfway across town to try to find a parking space in a dodgey neighbourhood*.
But what gives with no serviettes or napkins?
None. Not for me and not for anyone else in the place. I had a pocket-handkerchief and the front of my shirt, but that was the only assistance I was going to get with splops and spills. Someone forget the paper napkin order this week? Or is it another one of these ” new-trendy ” things?
I’ll visit again, because it is nice enough, but I’ll take a bedsheet with me and throw it about if I am forced to use it as a napkin. Might even offer an unused corner to diners on another table. After all, what are manners for, eh?
*Any neighbourhood I park in is dodgey
