Will you be interested to enter a creepy-looking urban eatery with spider webs hanging from the corners of the walls and skulls as decorations? Nope? I didn’t think so either.
How about a restaurant that has wooden stools, badly-constructed tables that look like they are about to collapse anytime during your meal, and cracked walls to keep you company during your lunch? Are you grumbling because you’re hungry or because you’re starting to lose your appetite and are about to walk out? Sounds like the latter, huh?
It is because customers are looking for clean and sleek ambiances that many restaurants are going for modern and/or sophisticated designs. Think soft cushioned sofa-like seats, marble tables, monochromatic walls splattered with abstract paintings, and of course, glass doors.
Yes, glass doors are beautiful. Yes, glass doors make the restaurant look clean, brighter, and very modern. And yes, glass doors can be annoying – and yes, you heard me right.
Just imagine you taking your change from your paid bill and then standing up to leave the newly-opened French restaurant, satisfied and happy with the service and the food. You walk past the other diners with much poise or suave and with a big smile on your face as the waiters and/or waitresses greet you a “Merci monsieur/mademoiselle” on your way to the door. Then *BOOGSH*!
Ow, my head! What was that?
It’s the door, dear. Looks like the glass was a little too transparent that you probably thought that walking straight out leads you directly to the sidewalk. Uh, unfortunately, that is not the case. There is that door that you needed to open first and you forgot. Ouch!
Ugh, stupid door! Who invented that anyway?
Alright, now that there’s a red spot (or baby bump) on your forehead, it would be smart enough not to turn around. I wouldn’t if I were you. I’m hearing giggles and gasps behind you so better not show your face anymore in order to save a little bit of your dignity.
Just pull/push that door and slowly walk out… and quickly run out of all the diners’ sight. Man, that was embarrassing! Just keep your fingers crossed that nobody took a video or a photo of that. Or else…
Hey man, I saw this video on Youtube where this guy hit his head on the glass door of that French restaurant across the street. It was hilarious! Now that I think about it, the guy’s back kinda looked like yours. Wait, was that YOU?
Now, who would be so evil to take that video?
I don’t know. Maybe some dude with a camera phone at hand enjoying your embarrassing moment?
Aw, come on. Don’t frown now. It was funny, admit it. Just be careful the next time you visit that restaurant or some other restaurants that have glass doors. You don’t want to get a second funny video of yours circulating around the internet, do you?
But that’s life: we learn from shame.
