    Yes. This has NOTHING to do with my post though.

    Given that these weapons are automatic vs. semi-automatic, please confirm that you have the appropriate paperwork, stamps, and/or permits to maintain these needless killing machines.

    Yes we(my husband and I) have the paperwork. Again, stop talking about off topic items.

    Um, obviously at least four packets of it. Who are you to judge anyway?

    on a more serious note all of your complaints sound like you are eating at an Applebees. Are you really mad that you aren't getting straws with your drinks? Are you really that guy who goes out to an expensive restaurant, expects perfect service and orders iced teas? Go eat your Dave and Busters chicken fingers and stop complaining that the wait staff is actually trying to be attentive to your needs you fucking dolt.

    First off, I am a 36yr old woman. Secondly, I get straws with my drink most of the times. Thirdly, when I go to an expensive restaurant, I order a soft drink AND some bar drinks could be wine, could be a mixed drink. What is wrong with ordering certain drinks? I mean is iced tea horrible or something? Seriously, I don't get what you are after with that one?

    I have never been to Dave and Busters since there are none in our state at all.

    If they were being attentive to my needs, they'd *ASK* MY PERMISSION to do the next thing instead of assume or tell me "I WILL GET YOU ANOTHER COKE", UHH, NO, YOU WILL *ASK* ME IF IT'S OK WITH ME SINCE I AM PAYING FOR MY TIME THERE CALLED A TIP! NO CONTROL SHOULD BE DONE BY THE SERVER! The customer controls their service, NOT the server! Who are you to tell me what I want for MY TIP MONEY, HUH?

    They aren't being attentive if they are getting me refills without asking, getting me ketchup I send back that is in my way, getting me the check when I am not ready for it, etc. That's wasting my time and putting things on the table I don't want not leaving room for the things I do want.

    You say you think I am eating at places like Applebee's, but bad service is at EVERY type of restaurant. We have had some of the worst service when our bill was $293 for just the 2 of us and the cheapest steak was $89 in 2011. This was a fine dining restaurant in Beau Rivage called BR Prime. It is VERY EXPENSIVE and the service was shitty. Our waiter took 8-10 minutes to get me a coke and a refill. Our waiter forgot my margarita from the bar and didn't even say he was sorry even though I STILL SAID THANK YOU and was NICE to HIM! You are dumb if you think it's non-expensive restaurants that have bad service.
