Please don't take my plate away

One of my pet peeves is when waiters feel the need to take my plate away before bringing the check.

I'm a slow eater so I usually finish last and in an effort to please my fellow diners, waiters will continually offer to take my plate away when I'm not finished. I don't mind if they bring the check so we can get squared way while I finish eating. To me, that's not a problem. But more often than not, waiters will not bring the check until they have cleared my plate. It's annoying!

How do you feel?
