Don’t clear your own restaurant table
Re: Restaurants soon to open in B.C.
I have never been a fan of cleaning up my table tray and waste after eating at a fast food restaurant. After all, it is the job of the restaurant staff to not only clean each table, but to ensure each space is properly sanitized for the next user. I encourage other customers to do the same.
It’s time we stop doing the job on behalf of restaurants, despite that restaurants love it when we do their job for them. But we are doing a poor job! Most table tops are never properly cleaned. A cleared table gives the appearance as cleaned, yet it is potentially germ infested; definitely un-sanitized. Now more than ever, this act of customer kindness must stop. Our safety literally depends on it. Germs can cause serious illness and it is up to the restaurant staff to properly clean and disinfect every table after use, not the customer.
