In 2007 I worked in a restaurant that served casual food to upscale clients and there were two regular occurrences that were shocking to me:
#1 The number of parents who would let their children run and crawl all over the restaurant was mind-blowing. The place was dimly lit, and I would constantly turn a corner with a tray full of hot food only to trip over a toddler rolling around on the floor.
#2 The tables were outfitted with Peugeot pepper mills and customers would constantly steal them. They were nice pepper mills that cost between $40 to $50, but if you could afford to eat at this place, you could afford to buy your own damn Peugeot.
Entitlement. It’s what’s for dinner!
