Pizza parlor etiquette
When I'm in a slice place, I usually like to use crushed red pepper and garlic powder. Many small shops will only have one or two dispensers of each. I'm posting this because I wanted to see if anyone else noticed the number of people that bring these dispensers to their table, and don't return them. The result is that I end up walking around the pizza place, slice on paper plate in hand and going to up to people's tables asking to "borrow" the crushed red pepper or garlic powder.
People, get it together! You need to season your slice at the counter -- if you must bring these crucial condiments to your table, then please return them when you're done dispensing.
Does anyone else have this problem, or have I lost it?
