Do You Sit On the Same Side of A Restaurant Booth?

Two questions.  One, are you a couple that sits on the same side of the table at a restaurant, instead of across from each other?  And two, if you are one of those couples, did you know it's making the restaurant hate you?


According to an article with anonymous interviews from restaurant staff, they hate "same siders"... because they tend to take longer to eat.  Apparently gazing into someone's eyes while you eat slows you down.


They also say that couples sitting on the same side of the table are more prone to public displays of affection, which can make other people in the restaurant uncomfortable.
