Servers' familiar behaviour

randyjl | Jul 21, 2012 09:05 AM

What do you do when a server proceeds to be too familiar? I am very offended when a server treats me as a long lost friend. The worst offense is when he/she sits at the table or booth with my partner and me. Once I gently complained that it was not appropriate to the server. His response prompted me to call for the manager. His response was, "That's how we train our servers." I responded that I would not be staying nor returning. He responded, "That's your choice."
