16 Of The Most Annoying Things You Can Do In A Restaurant

"Nothing makes your heart drop like getting sat at 9:45 p.m. when the restaurant closes at 10:00 p.m."

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the most annoying things restaurant customers do without even realizing it. Here's what they told us:

1. Throwing full beverages into the garbage not realizing someone has to take it out.

2. Assuming the server remembers you from the last time you came in.

3. Demanding free bread as soon as you sit down at your table.

4. Coming in 15 minutes before the restaurant closes...

5. ..Or camping out long after the restaurant has closed.

6. Completely disregarding your server by immediately ordering drinks instead of greeting them.

7. Asking your server to make your drink "strong."

8. Telling your server to smile.

9. Not pushing in your chair after you leave.

10. Not tipping properly when you use a gift card or order off a happy hour menu.

11. Complaining to your server about additional charges for extra ingredients.

12. When parents don’t pay attention to or allow their children to open multiple sugar packets and pour them on the floor without attempting to clean or at least leaving a 20% tip.

13. Parties of 10 who walk in and expect a table without calling ahead.

14. Seating yourself instead of waiting to be seated.

15. Breaking a glass and not telling anyone.

16. Telling a host that you see "open tables" available as you're waiting.
