Okay, just had to get something off my chest. Tell me if I'm being a cow here... boyfriend and I went with a large-ish party of workmates (about 8 or so people) to TGI Friday's near here some time ago. I was sat next to my boyfriend, but not directly as he was at the head of the table (I'm at the first seat next to him on the long end), and I was having a conversation with the person sat next to me, when the waitress comes over. She seemed really bubbly and friendly, and asked if we were ready to order. A couple of us wanted a few minutes more to decide, so in the mean time she SAT DOWN IN MY BOYFRIEND'S LAP. Just plonked her skinny arse down on his knee like she had every right to be there! THEN took all the table's orders from that vantage point!! WTF? Is this policy? I didn't leave her any tip... before you start slating me, however, this is the UK where tipping isn't generally expected, and other people in my party did round their portion of the bill up to the nearest pound, so she did get something.
