Cafe Ordering Etiquette
I absolutely detest being interrupted while I'm looking at the overhead menu while standing away from the line and counter to order. Someone at the counter invariably calls out asking if they can help me with anything, then saying that if I need anything let them know. Yes, I will let you know if I have any questions and when I'm ready to order, but I'll go to the sign that says 'order here' when I am. Meanwhile I have to start reading the menu all over again to figure out what I want.

This happens at almost every coffeehouse and cafe I go to. It has gotten so bad that I start berating them before they actually do it, distracting myself from looking at the menu. *sighs and shakes head*

Haven't I posted about this before?

maybe you are just a little to distractable?

Oh, that's certainly possible. :-P It's not easy for me to decide what I feel like eating.

You offer me too many choices and it takes me a moment to listen to my stomach to figure out what it feels like eating. I may not be picky (most of the time) but I still have to pick something. :-P

One of my pet peeves as well. When I'm standing back and looking up at the menu what exactly do they think I'm doing? Daydreaming? When I'm ready to order I'll step up to the counter!

Maybe it happens to me more than most and seems like more of an issue since I go cafe/coffee house hopping very frequently. *shrugs*
