Does this waiter think you're ordering weirdly? Possibly.
Are you apologetic? Indecisive? Do you suddenly become weirdly macho?
There are tons of annoying ways to order in a restaurant (just ask a member of any wait staff). To prove it (and shine a mirror on our own weird behavior), Zagat hired two actors to demonstrate just how much people change their personalities when faced with a menu and a pen-poised waiter. (A personal pet peeve: People who don't make eye contact with the staff. What are you, the Queen of England?)
