Zagat Now Explains How to Not Be an Annoying Douchebag in Restaurants

Following up on the success of the 10 most annoying restaurant trends, Zagat is now listing the eight most annoying things customers can do to annoy their waiters.

Most of the instructions are common sense: Don't leave your crap all over the table when the server comes with your food. Don't enter the kitchen during service. Never text while ordering. Others, though, aren't quite as obvious. Apparently it's rude to ask for water for the whole table when only you are thirsty because it's more work for the server and wastes water. Because, you know, those three glasses of water were mighty pricey.
