paperless waitstaff: how do you feel about memorization?

Just curious here. How do you feel about waitstaff that memorizes your dinner order (and I mean when you're in a party of anywhere from 4 or more) instead of writing it down? Does this impress you or leave you anxious? Have you received your memorized order correctly?

(For my own part, I am not impressed and fret until what I ordered actually materializes, correctly. I don't feel it adds anything worthwhile and is unnecessary showmanship.)
