Why don’t people clear up after themselves at food courts?
“Do you clean up after yourself in all restaurants? Agreed it’s unfair to make more of a mess than you would in your own home, but let’s agree that people eat out precisely because they don’t want the hassle of cooking or cleaning.”
“Matt, a food court is not the same as a restaurant. In a restaurant you are given your food at the table, in a food court you are expected to take your food from the counter and are in turn expected to clear out the table that you sit at. Its as simple as that. If you don’t want to wipe the table clean then that’s fine, that’s what those cleaner guys are there for, but the least you can do is to dump everything on the tray and clear it off the table.”
FOOD COURT ISSUES...?
“Its the mentality of people in Dubai i.e someone gets paid to do everything for them. I feel that the cleaners’ job is to wipe the tables or clean up a mess from the floor. The concept of serving the food on trays is designed so that it’s easy to pick up your tray and empty it in one of the many bins. Even the bins are designed to make it easy to just tilt your tray into it. You wouldn’t leave your trash in a park (where there are cleaners), so just because a food court has a roof, doesn’t mean its not a communal area. Thats just my opinion and how I was raised. “
