Typical welcome in a Brussels bar

In my last four years in Belgium, I think only once the waiter came to me and ask me what I would like to drink in less than a minute!!!!!

Last halloween I went with some friends (yes despite my looks I have friends) to a well-known beer bar at the centre. The room for non-smokers was almost empty, so we sat in two tables.

The owner came after 10 minutes to take the order. We were not fully ready since our discussion was very intentse, so we asked for 5 more minutes. Do you know what he replied??

"Please I need you to make your order now, I have to make business here!!!!"

We were then, completely speechless after such warm welcoming.

Welcome to Service in Brussels I said!
