    Substitute “pathetic” for “weird” and that’s me. But it’s hard not to feel that way when you go to a restaurant on your own.

    Marlene’s neck is so tiny.

  3. swishbin says:

    ohhhhh shit, scallion pancakes are the best

    everyone should be able to recognize them for what beauty they have to share with the taste buds of the world and appreciate them on this level.

    I, too, worry intensely about what waiters and waitresses think of me. Also, whenever I go to a place enough that the waiters or counter people recognize me I tend to stop going. I think I have mental problems?

    oh man, green onion pancakes are so delicious, i would order twelve of them too

    I kinda assume that all counter and waitstaff at any bar, coffeeshop, or restaurant I’ve ever eaten/drank at thinks I’m weird and annoying. The evenness of it all sort of removes that particular anxiety.

  8. Vance says:

    Well if you ever get that feeling of them staring you down, kill’em with kindness…or stiff em a tip. Both work.

    XD I love Mar’s dilated eyes. Her and Ben2’s relationship is pretty cool, btw.
    Funny comic. <3

    marlene’s neck looks a little weird in the first 2 panels.
    is it just me or has it looked like that the whole time?

  11. Robert says:

    Oh God yes I worry about that so much.

    Sometimes I don’t get what I want because I’m afraid they’ll think I’m a freak if I hold the tomatoes.

  12. Madeline says:

    I used to until I started waiting tables. Now I just try to make sure that any special requests I have are fairly common ones.

  13. ObstreperousB says:

    I love Marlene’s dilated pupils. She is high on FLAVOR!

  14. DM says:

    I’m pretty easy to please, so I never change my order. I tip well. My only REAL anxiety about eating out is that I talk to my friends about the STRANGEST, most INAPPROPRIATE shit.

  15. Suilean Dubh says:

    YES. Omigod I worry about that all the time! ALL THE TIME! Well, less now than when I was little and my mom would fuss at me for not making eye contact or wanting to order because I was TERRIFIED of the waitstaff. My mom has always had little patience for my anxieties.
