so, i'm at dinner at the artists palate and a waiter at the next table is doing magic tricks for the kids at his table. I mention it and say, something about wishing we had magic tricks too. at the end of dinner my waiter comes out and apologizes for not knowing any magic and promises to learn. needless to say I was mortified. he was a perfectly adequate server, just not magical. I hated that my musings had either been heard by or reported to him. I watched my tongue at dinner every night after that. I realize they need to be able to hear people at table for the crush show, but why were they listening at other times? it felt very intrusive. imagine what else you might discuss with your nearest and dearest at dinner... has anyone else had a similar experience?
