I Just Asked for a Napkin!


I Just Asked for a Napkin! - What Happened and Why?


Location: London, England

Student: Female 20  


I'm a napkin person. At every meal I tend to use a lot of napkins…say anywhere from 3-5, depending on whether the napkins are the flimsy paper kind or the cloth ones. Out at a restaurant, I never seem to have enough napkins. I always ask for more napkins. While in London I ate out often and I noticed that every time I would ask the waiter/waitress for more "napkins" I would get funny looks.  I felt as if I had asked for something dirty or disgusting. People knew what I meant, and always handed me more napkins. But they seemed to give me a weird look.

Why the strange looks?
