A pet peeve of mine...

Tonight Kevin and I went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner--their cheese fries. Even though it's an appetizer, it's quite filling.

Anyhow, the waitress was one who uses "we" frequently. "How are we doing tonight?" (Ummmm....WE are doing fine, how 'bout you?) "Are we getting low on drinks?" (Ummmm...you aren't drinking out of my glass are you???). She was a sweet gal, and did a good job waiting our table, but that "we" thing is just a little annoying!

Is that something waiters/waitresses are trained to do? It seems more and more common.

Well, "we" enjoyed our cheese fries tonight! ;-)

First time we went to an Outback Steakhouse, the waitress sat down next to my husband and started eating his fries!

LOL! That is funny...and bad, Tracy!

Tammy, I've never noticed the 'we' thing. The thing that gets me is when they seem to forget about you. We sat down some place once, she got our drinks, and then she never came back to take our order. One time we were somewhere and the people ordered their appetizer...they got their appetizer...and then I heard them later flagging down the server (after they had finished their food) saying they wanted to order their dinner. Ouch.

Oh Tracie! LOL That is awful! That waitress wouldn't have gotten a tip from us. My goodness, how rude!

Kinda reminds me of the way that preachers say "Tonight we are going to preach this message. . . "
