Feasting on mouthwatering prawns accompanied by tantalizing drinks at a fancy restaurant is truly a wonderful experience; one can simply sit peacefully and eat all day long. Everybody loves to eat out once in a while, but your enjoyable evening or afternoon can turn nightmarish because of a few annoying people you come across at restaurants.
Restaurants are truly unique places; they showcase a cross-section of society. You will come across a variety of characters and personalities, right from the loner quietly having his meal to a bunch of crazy beings who will virtually try everything to disrupt your humble attempt to have a peaceful meal.
These people are a combination of both annoying yet entertaining, and we bump into these stereotypes every time we dine out. So, these are the 18 types of people you may encounter at restaurants.
Getting a food order out of them can a daunting task, because apparently these two lovebirds can't take their eyes off each other. They don't want any distance between them, so they will sit besides each other and let everybody know how much they are in love! They perfectly know the art of feeding their partner and simultaneously talking through their eyes.
If it's a working individual, then you just need to bear him/her for a half hour, because of his lunch timings. These individuals won't create a fuss over what they want, and you certainly won't be bothered by their presence.
In fact, they are so glued to their phones that they sometimes forget the other person's presence. If you are sitting at a table near this person, you will be forced to hear their financial as well as personal problems, because they tend to talk very loudly over the phone.
They believe in capturing each and every moment of their lives, so food is no exception. Also, they use a lot of camera applications and photo filters which you might not be aware of.
These ladies' booming laughter will surely shake up all the four corners of the restaurant. Either they are drunk or simply having a good time, but they surely rob you of your peace and quiet time.
They will order salad as their starter and also their main course. If they are out with somebody, they will even try to convince, no compel, the other person to start eating healthy.
Their area is full of smoke, it's as if they are planning to cloud the whole restaurant with their smoke. They are very irritating which can make even garden or open-air restaurants feel like gas chambers.
"I don't eat fries", "I am allergic to garlic", "I hate salads", and the list continues. They probably place the order five times before canceling it again. They find it hard to finish what is served on their plate, and you will often find them making faces if their choice of food was not ordered.
You will often see one or the other person crying, yelling, and the other party trying to quieten them down. Or it can be both individuals abusing and screaming at each other. This can be quite an amusing spectacle in a slightly sadistic way, especially if their breakup involves betrayal.
You will often see them staring into oblivion and asking waiters to get them another round of whatever they are drinking. Not to mention their favorite response―"You have no idea who I am" implying don't mess with me―when the waiter refuses to serve them any more drinks.
You will surely find at least one person who breaks crockery or maybe a cutlery has to slip down from their hands. You will either see an apologetic face or an 'I don't care attitude' on that person.
During the rest of the meal, all they will talk about is how the same dish can be prepared by using other ingredients too. They have tried and tested every dish in the menu and will indirectly appreciate their own cooking style.
