Not sure which fork to use with which course?
Scared of angering the lovely waiter with silly questions about beetroot?
Not sure what to do when the pork tastes like a wrestlers jock strap?
Like wine, like coke, not sure if you can ask for a pint glass of wine mixed with coke?
Worried that the waiter will spit in your soup because you asked to move table three times eventually settling for the one you were first offered?
I have the answers and if I don't I'll just make it up or blame you for being a dunce. Seriously, I do that all the time at work.

Testimonials from satisfied customers...
Plongeur asked about substituting, "Oh my, I feel all famous now! That’s rather excellent advice"
Dawniepants wondered how to deal with asshat waiters, "Lol, I shall bring a slipper and a firm tone with me in future"
Chum Natalie was concerned about how to deal with an over zealous waiter pushing specials on her, "Oh Manuel your advice has given me the confidence to dine out again. Thank you"
Obviously some people don't want to learn or grow or believe the waiter...
Not Twitter was skeptical with regard to my black pepper ceremony reasoning, "
Expensive, my hole. Couple of quid for a grinder. Put small cheap ones on the table , preferably ugly, and no-one will steal them. Everyone’s happy. Also, I believe the bit about the dead flies. You’re hiding the evidence."
But more people are satisfied than not. So don't be shy and suffer in silence as you eat food you don't like and suffer service from a waiter who needs slapped upside his head. Ask Manuel!
