I always great with a friendly Hi! How are you today? Then it's followed with you have been to ***insert rest. name here***? The response is NOT: A coke!!! You're feeling coke today? Ummm okay? It was annoying at first but God knows how many server years later, and I'm seriously sick of the rudeness of this.
A post in another community made me wonder. Do your tables tend to order appetizers with their drinks? It shocked me when people did it when I moved here but apparently it's the norm in some places?
