What's too long of a visit at someones table when you know them (close or casualy) and they are out to eat and already have their food??

The proper amount of time is however long it takes to distract them so you can swipe that delicious hunk of fried chicken off their plate and slip away before they notice.

And on the flipside of that, if you are a waitress or a bartender and your buddies are there- please don't ignore them or give them less-than-your-best service.

Here's some restuarant etiquitte- if the bartender is your buddy and giving you free or cheap food and beers- you still need to tip them!!

Since they already have their food, more than a wave or nod is poor manners.

And for the love of Saint Martha and Theodatus, remove your damn cover!

Mostly it depends on how hot she is. And if she is buying rounds.

I think it depends on whether they keep buying pitchers of beer.

maybe justforfun was spelling that way just for fun.

IMHO, it should be like this

  1. See person/party
  2. Say 'hello'
  3. Move on

No more time than for them to skip maybe one bite.....then move on. Of course, unless they seem to want to be a Chatty Cathy, and still in that event, cut it short.

I think it depends on the situation, and you have to read people. Often, while I am out to eat people come and join us and I have no problem with it, in fact, I enjoy it. However, a few weeks ago, some friends and I were eating at this..ummm...person came and sat with us. He was extremely intoxicated or something, and wouldn't leave. I thought we were obvious about it, but apparantly not obvious enough. when he did leave we had the server remove the extra chair so he wouldnt be tempted to return. I think most people have the ability to know when it's time to go. A dead giveaway to stay is when I offer to buy you a beer!
