Can I read that back to you?

James Kellerman

No, you cant.

One of my pet hates here in Singapore is the insistence on wait staff at restaurants to read the order back to you. This happens even in fairly good restaurants even with one item orders. I am not sure that ordering food really requires the same confirmation process as say, open heart surgery or launching a nuclear missile. The complexity and consequences are considerably less. It appears to be a lose lose scenario as well. If you read me back the order and it's correct at best the outcome is neutral but its a waste of everybody's time. If you read it back to me and you had it wrong then you look stupid, though certain disaster has narrowly been avoided. Can we not just have wait staff who are competent enough at their jobs that they don't ned to read back my one item order.
