You are always on your phone
As you already know, it is very annoying when you ignore your waiter or waitress because you check your Facebook, read a message on WhatsApp, or scroll on TikTok. There is an essential rule that everyone should follow, namely that if you want to be respected back, then try to do the same.
In this sense, if you expect your server to give you their full attention, then you should pay attention to your interaction as well. In fact, you can stay on your phone as long as you want after you order your food.
Don’t forget that you went out to the restaurant to eat something delicious and relax. “There’s a concern that you end up with a dining room of people snapping photos, and that somehow impacts the dining experience of everyone,” said Peter Naccarato, co-author of Culinary Capital.
