    I thought of this as I was reading the tipping thread and someone mentioned that they tidy up after themselves in a restaurant. It bothers me when people in a fast food place don't put away their tray and put their rubbish in the bin. What do the people of AH find rude or unmannerly?

    Not saying please or thank you.

    Door etiquette.

    Not holding the door for someone you know is behind you.
    Not making any gesture of thanks when the door is held open for you.

    When cashiers put your change on the counter even though you have your hand out for it.

    all the above but most of all being late.
    if you arrange to meet someone at 9.00pm anything beyond 9.10pm is in my book extremely rude without a very very good excuse ( serious accident, sudden serious illness, death in the family)

    Why does this bother you?

    They call themselves restaurants, and as in any other restaurant, i'm not going to bring my plate into the kitchen.

    I will expand your point about not making gestures of thanks to driving. I often let cars out of side streets if I'm in a queue of traffic. Most people nod, finger wave, thumps up etc. Those who don't after being let out I feel like demolition derbying their ass. :-)

    Oh the lateness thing kills me.

    If you agree with someone to be somewhere at a specific time and you turn up late, with no notice or excuse, you are basically saying "my time is more important than yours".

    These are the kind of people i stop making plans to meet up with.

    People who don't flush the toilet after using it. Either in their home or elsewhere. Manky mingers.


  • Moderators, Education Moderators Posts: 26,402 Mod ✭✭✭✭Peregrine


    People who don't push their chairs in after they get up and leave them strewn around the table.

    Or people who miss the seat. I don't mean just the bowl, the whole seat. It shouldn't be that hard to control. It's hardly a fireman's hose.

    The trays and bins are provided so the customers can do this themselves and it is expected of them. I'd never feel comfortable leaving my rubbish on a table for someone to pick up after me when I can do it myself.

    If you are aged under about 40 you have no idea how much timekeeping has improved in Ireland. There was a time when it was almost impossible to make any arrangements at all for anything.

    One example was a table quiz a group of us went to that was due to start at 7.30. At 8.30 there was still no sign of it starting, at about 8.45 someone casually turned up and I think the quiz started about 9.30, but by that time we had lost interest and left. And it was by no means exceptional.

    Eventually people got fed up waiting for stragglers and started, say, meetings on time, and refused to update late comers. Now most things do actually happen when they are supposed to.

    And it helps to keep the prices down which Is what we like about fast food places. Fast and cheap.

    Never had a bout of trick shots first thing in the morning? Sure yesterday morning, standing square and true aiming for dead centre. The stream went 90 degrees off to the right from the aim point and hit my right foot. Think I need a funnel and laser sight on it sometimes

    Some days you just don't know till you let it flow.

    When you're talking to someone and instead of listening, they're just waiting, mouth slightly agape, for their turn to speak.

    This in reverse. I used to work in retail and the most ignorant thing in the world is when a customer puts the money down on the counter instead of handing it directly to you. I find it very dismissive.

    I mean obviously there are hundreds of rude things people do to people working in shops/restaurants so I won't start into that. :mad:

    When customers throw their money down on the counter instead of handing it to you ( I hold my hand out until they pick it up and give it to me!) Or, even worse, holding a conversation on the phone while you are serving them. Some people lack even the most basic manners!

    People that correct your grammar/spelling...so rude.

    Who are you? My teacher/parent???


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,802 ✭✭✭beks101


    People who talk over you or interrupt you mid-sentence.
    People who start checking their phone mid-conversation WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE DO THIS.
    People who don't say 'excuse me' and 'thanks' when you stand up to let them out from the window seat on a bus/train and instead just plough passed you.

    Not thanking me when I leave you pull out of your parking spot/junction etc. Cunce.

    Oh this bothers me so much!!!!

    I'm actually an English language teacher so am well aware of grammar rules etc as I spend hours a day involved in correcting students.

    When I'm not at work, I'll talk however the **** I want to talk, grammatically correct or not.

    It's rare in real life (my oh does it to bug me though) but it's rife on the internet. I treat this little box I'm typing in like my mouth. I'm 'speaking' conversationally, I don't care if it's perfect.

    Suppose you're right. Two streams is the worst. How does that even happen?

    OK, and then you just leave it like that?:confused:

    The other day a lady's bag blew away from her in the car park and I caught it and went to hand it back to her, she ripped it out of my hand, no thank you, just turned and walked away. Pure ignorant behaviour.


    I also have a problem with people who cant ever be on time, its hugely disrespectful of someone's time. I'm not talking five minutes or being late and texting, I'm talking half an hour and just showing up.
    My in laws are like this and it drives me bonkers, its to the point of ridiculousness now that we tell them a meeting time an hour before we need them and theyre still late!
