Something needs to be done about the wait staff in restaurants that stop by to check on you 47 times during the first course alone. That being said, checking on us as we negotiate the difference between Koa Pad Lin Gee and Shui Zhu Yu is one thing. But, I will not be held responsible the next time a waiter asks how we’re all doing, again, just as I was about to deliver the punch line to the most hilarious joke ever. That soon-to-be explosive-with-laughter moment is interrupted, now gone and impossible to get back. Memo to the American Restaurant Association: please make it mandatory for all wait staff in restaurants to take joke-interruption sensitivity training. Thank you.
