Johnson: Beeblebrox: When you sit across you're actually farther away. It's actually harder to have a conversation with my wife if the restaurant is even mildly loud.Absolutely! That's why I always sit next to your wife when we go out to dinner.
bikerbob59: I don't understand why people sit side-by-side at a table or booth.Sit across from each other people!!
Langdon Alger: my girlfriend is left handed and I'm right handed. One more thing that makes same side sitting a pain.
I May Be Crazy But...: Langdon Alger: my girlfriend is left handed and I'm right handed. One more thing that makes same side sitting a pain.So sit on her right. That way you can hold hands under the table while you eat, or whatever y'all are doing with your off hands.
NutWrench: I guess I'm not that easily freaked out.
Billy Bathsalt: //I think a discreet handy is guaranteed by the 29th amendment.
Dr Dreidel: [1630revellodrive.files.wordpress.com image 256x192]So long as you do not impede the flow of traffic, I do not care how you choose to enjoy your meal.// actually, he'd be in dork mode// "Hi, folks! Make sure you're not blocking the aisles!"
Holocaust Agnostic: Goddamned asymmetrical assholes! You don't need a perfectly even distribution around the table but at least make an effort. When you all lump together like that in unasthetic knots it ruins my dining experience.
pute kisses like a man: bikerbob59: I don't understand why people sit side-by-side at a table or booth.Sit across from each other people!!some restaurants have loud music or loud people. on the occasion that I sit next to my wife at a booth, it's because we can't hear each other and I'll be damned before i raise my voice for other people. i have no interest in joining the decline of humanity (which is loud noise).
Bronzemom: You know if your girlfriend sits left and you right Langdon Alger then you can hold hands while you eat that is called romantic . Hope that helps.
The Martian Manhandler: I'm only a Same-sider if the four-top has a cushioned bench on one side and chairs on the other. Why should I have to sit in an uncomfortable wooden chair when there's a perfectly cromulent seat on the other side?
Glancing Blow: Up next: Should people eat the European way in American restaurants or should the fork always remain in the right hand - left-handed miscreants need not comment.
S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: Being a host, I'm getting a kick out of these. While there is nothing wrong with it per se, it is weird. Mainly for the reason you're almost 60 years old and you look like a couple of 12 year olds on a first date....
eas81: Deneb81: bikerbob59: I don't understand why people sit side-by-side at a table or booth.Sit across from each other people!!We both wanted to watch the game?That's why they have a bar.

abmoraz: Most of you haven't read the actual article (or don't understand the "server-speak"). They aren't saying people that sit side-by-side in a booth or a table are creepy. They're saying that people that sit side by side on a "2-top" are creepy, and as a former server, I kind of agree.a "2-top" is a small table or end booth that is designed to hold 2 guests, generally across from each other.[t0.gstatic.com image 300x168](shamelessly hotlinked)People that take the chair around and squeeze both people on the same side of these are creepy, and generally a pain, cause they bleed into the aisles and affect the ability of servers and other patrons to get around.
tricycleracer: Booth = opposite.Table = share a corner.
steklo: toilet paper hang under the roll, vs, hanging over the top?
I May Be Crazy But...: S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: Being a host, I'm getting a kick out of these. [etc.]And when I want the waitstaff's opinion of my relationship, I'll ask for it./Also, I'm the greasy one in the relationship, not her. So take that.
