I can’t believe I saw a customer do this at a Tully’s at WNY

Going out to eat with family and friends at a restaurant in Western New York is one of the best things to do, especially in the summer.

Personally, I love going out to eat in sit-down restaurants. It’s one of my favorite daily activities. I say daily, but in reality it only happens once or twice a week.

There are plenty of great places to go, whether owned by a local or national chain.

However, sometimes there are cases that leave you confused about what some customers are doing. You might be thinking about not tipping, and while it’s something that should never happen, another thing I saw last week puzzled me.

My fiancée and I went to Tully’s on French Road in Cheektowaga (near Depew and West Seneca) last week for dinner. It’s one of our favorite places to go and the food and service are always good.

However, we saw a customer do something I don’t think I’ve seen before in a sit-down restaurant.

This client was part of a large group of people; maybe six or seven at a table. To make enough room at his table, this customer kept putting dirty dishes and cups on an adjacent table which was being cleaned by staff to prepare for a future customer party.

This customer did this at least three times, and each time the staff was confused as to why dirty dishes kept appearing on this cleaned table.

I want to have a table cleaned for your party, but that should never happen for obvious reasons. I’ve never seen that in all my life.

I don’t know if anything came of it, but I felt bad for the staff who worked hard on a busy evening to wait and clean the tables.

Has anyone ever seen something like this?
