: I am a slow eater and I dislike it when the busboytakes away my partner` dishes before I` finished.It makes me feel rushed.
I am also a slow eater and can't stand it when the busboys not only take away partners' dishes, but if I put my fork down for one second they appear and some even touch the rim of my plate ready to pick it up and ask if they can take it away. It ruins the meal for me. I also hate the routine "Is everything okay" when everyone has a bite of food in their mouth. Go away! If I need you I'll find you. Stop interrupting! Also, I can't stand condescending waiters who proceed to explain dishes. I'm a great cook myself and don't need to be told "Risotto is our Italian rice." Turns me off. Also don't like waiters who appear ready to take orders when diners have menus in their faces and are obviously not ready to order and are still deciding. That's a rush and I get bad feelings about how the rest of the meal is going to proceed when it begins like that.
