What Happened To The Waiters?

(I missed yesterday's posting; you have to get used to being back home and I wasn't. There is a certain rhythm to life and, once disturbed, poorly resumed.)

There's no white tablecloths, there are no legions of waiters (each one indicated by a number) at breakfast:
1. Assigns table
2. Takes you to table and arranges napkin
3. Brings coffee
4. Asks about juice
5. Brings menu
6. Asks about muffins, etc.
7. Fills water glass
5. Takes order
3. Checks for coffee refill
5. Brings meal
7. Tops off water glass
3. Refills coffee
6. Checks if you want muffin
5. Asks if meal is fine
3. Comes around occasionally and checks coffee without asking
7. Ditto #3 about water
1. Wishes you a good day as you leave

It doesn't get much better than that. Until lunch and supper.
