    First time I've listed any of these.

    People that invade the personal bubble. It's there. You don't see it, but it's there. Like, don't poke/hug/slap/nudge or whatever the hell you're trying to do. You'll get yelled at. I hate when people assume they can enter your space automatically.

    Couples who sit on the same side of the booth

    when there is no one on the other side. - like, is there a reason you can’t sit in front of each other? It just seems a little weird that you have to sit right next to each other when you’re sitting at a booth in a restaurant… They have 2 sides for a reason… use it.

    Bad waitresses. Like at Red Lobster,

    We asked for the check while she was checking on us(the one time she did) Then she took 40 min to check on all the tables around us. When she finally brought it she didn't even say sorry about the wait or anything. The restaurant was not even busy at all.
