Do you also think all Europeans are elitist? Because they routinely spend two hours in a restaurant. Also, only 3 other people came into the restaurant the entire time we were there. Many empty tables remained empty. And you assume we were self-absorbed, when my friend spent a long time talking with the server, who kept coming over to chat because she was bored, about plans to host several future events in the restaurant. No, you are the one I assume is elitist. But not knowing you personally, I can’t say for sure so I wouldn’t jump to conclusions.
