Chinese Restaurant Tables and those who move them

"People who come into a restaurant, rearrange the tables, eat, leave, and don't put back the tables from where they originally found them."

So that was my observation. Here I was at my usual Chinese take out place. It's cheap, and actually fairly genuine. The menu is mostly americanized but they have a few dishes that is catered to the chinese palette. Pretty good all around.

Here I am minding my business and I noticed this big family of adults and children, roughly 15 or so individuals in the group. They pulled a bunch of tables together so that they could all sit and eat together. No big deal. People do that all the time.

What bugs me the most is that after this group was done eating none of the adults bothered to put the tables back to their original position. How do I know? Well, each table is supposed to be by themselves and not placed next to each other. This group had 4 tables placed next to each other.

This may not seem like a big deal but what happened to common courtesy? If these kids were playing with their toys at home, and when they were done they didn't put them back, what do you think their parents would say? Do you think it is appropriate for you to go to the supermarket push around one of their carts and when you were done just ditched it at by the curb where you parked, not even to at least return the cart to the cart return corral or back to wherever you got the cart in the first place?

Remember VHS? Some of you may not remember that not too long ago when you used to rent movies on VHS it was common courtesy for you to "be kind, please rewind". What happened to those days?

Maybe it is just me but I suppose people are getting lamer by the day. Quit being lame people and pick up after yourselves. Clearly you're not setting a good example for your kids because none of them bothered to do what you should have done in the first place.

Shame on you! Booo!!!
