Wow Mike, sounds like you get a little cantanerous when the old feed bag is not tied on right away.As a very former waitress, I can tell you the ladiesalways are served first. Not only is it good manners, but any good server will tell you it's the woman who decides the tip 9 times out of 10. Next time try clinking on your glass, the servers just love it!
We had to keep playing musical chairs on the Century last September because my father was convinced the waiter ALWAYS served him last. I thought it was pretty funny. Our table always waited until everybody was served before starting each course. We will see what happens on the Zenith in April.
