Maybe you didn't know this, when you sit at a dirty table you are being rude. It's akin to butting in line at a playground slide or pulling off an 'end-run' at your office, or entering a movie late and then expecting the theatre should re-start the movie because you in your arrogance and entitlement expect preferential treatment.
This is a very busy beehive of a family-run business. The servers run as fast as they can and as such it is difficult to track everyone by face recognition. When you sit at a dirty table the server, at most busy restaurants, can't tell if you are just finishing or just arriving and it throws the flow and rythm of things. I know because I've been a server.
There is an etiquette, or common courtesy to follow whether you are a customer or an employee/owner.
Most of us would get pretty testy if day after day, hour after hour, people kept interupting prodedural protocols and then blaming us when work isn't completed on time or errors are made.
I've eaten at this restaurant since it first opened. The food is fresh, affordable, of high quality, delicious; they make variations for me so I can always 'eat healthy'. Quirckey and quaint- I love it!
