This is probably not going to be what you are expecting...I am a former server and I am also on occasion a customer myself! I have been in the business for over 20 years so I do know what I am talking about. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about getting good service when dining out. I have targeted this "advice" to "Urban" diners because honestly, when compared to rural folks, urban folks are more rude, self centered, and they lack common sense. Not sure the reasoning....that is just my observation. Stay tuned.
