Why does the waiter look away

Why does the waiter look away? Every time I want to pay. I never like to make a fuss, Or ever, ever swear or cuss. Up goes my hand to beckon her, or maybe him, if you prefer, but I might as well scream and shout as the waiter always moves about. I look a fool as I pen the air, in an attempt to draw a stare. So, tell me what I have to do? A simple question I put to you? The waiter will expect a tip, But I might as well give the slip, If I’m completely overlooked, In this restaurant I should not have booked!

--Maybe the waiter does NOT want a tip! Try that the next time the waiter looks away! LOL. (Btw, I hate it when this happens)! :) gw

Me too. It's a pet hate. Sometimes I swear the waiter avoids you on purpose. Thankfully there are also some great restaurants where this isn't the case. Hope all is well my friend. RT
