|another thing i've noticed about europe (besides the personal space infractions, incessant smoking, and techno remixes) is that no one buses their own table. now, i have nothing against this local custom, but i feel as though i'm committing some gross, consumerist sin by leaving my dishes on the table and walking away. i think we just have fanatical waitstaff nazis that have us all under a reign of terror, fearing for our lives should we not bring our dishes in.
and the stares of amazement i get when i do bring my dishes to the counter. "who is this patron saint??"
there are some things about europe i wouldn't change.
