Another Pet Peeve: Wobbly Tables

Buen Provecho | May 7, 2002 02:48 PM

Does this irk anyone else, or is it just me? It seems like bad form to be jamming wadded napkins under the leg of a table or chair and yet, I'd almost prefer that to having a shipboard-type experience of sliding plates, glasses, or votive candles whenever a tablemate wants to emphasize a point or rest his/her wrists on the table. I don't make a habit of carrying an assortment of shims around with me when I go out to eat. And why oh why would a patron be seated at such a table when other non-wobbly tables are available - I'm talking about a regular and/or well regarded patron here, not someone the waitstaff wants to get back at for some reason. Any thoughts?
