Waiter Keeps Grubby Paws to Self, Editor Irked

Bon Appetit’s online editor, Martha Simon, had a regrettable experience at a Los Angeles restaurant, and vents about it.
FBLA was right there with her until this part:

EXHIBIT B: Staff dotted the dining room in twos and threes, chatting, but when I later returned to my seat after a trip to the ladies’ room, nobody had bothered to refold my napkin.

If the waiter touches one napkin, he touches 50. And that means germs from 50 other mouths are on his fingers. Let’s not have a visual of that. No one touches the FBLA napkin.
And while speculation as to her dining location is running wild, it’s not a million miles from here.
