This almost happens at every restaurant - ElSherlock

That happened to me at Starbucks, but then they gave me the wrong one and the right one, and the wrong one was so much better! - sadical

2 words: Panda Express.

One time, at Taco Bell, I ordered no sour cream and I got extra sour cream.

5 Watching everyone get their food around you

And you are sitting there waiting - Randomator

6 Your food isn't cooked right
7 Being the last person to get your food at your table

Then, you can steal other people’s food! - sadical

8 Hearing people chew

My brother Lol - 2storm

Absolutely disgusting!


9 Can't see the TV

T.V. at a restaurant? - Userguy44

Who cares?

10 Arguing over the check

Asian parents do this all the time!

(in a restaurant in LA/Vegas)
Mom: I'll pay
My aunt: No I'll pay


The Contenders

11 Slow waiter

Hey, patience is a virtue. - Lucy1402

12 The person who orders a lot
13 You get the unattractive waiter instead of the really hot one
14 Rude waiters
15 Dining with a messy eater

Honestly that applies for even dinner time at home. It’s SO GROSS eating and watching half my family members use their fingers to eat food such as spaghetti! It’s even worse at restaurants though because then every other person there can see them too!

16 Having a baby near your table screaming and crying the whole time and ruining your enjoyment

About 99% of the times I go out to eat - DrayTopTens

This is incredibly annoying. - Userguy44

17 Not getting your included item

At a buffet that's in my area, they give out free fortune cookies to the diners. Once I dined there and I didn't get them. I tried to ask, but they didn't response.

I saw where they kept the fortune cookies, and when they aren't looking, I stole some :D

18 Loud music

Don’t happens to often. - Userguy44

19 When someone else at your table gets an entree that looks more delicious than your food.
