So here is the background, my wife and I had been out for a walk and decided on a little impromptu late lunch. Not long after our meals were served served a piece of red pepper fell from my fork onto the floor ( I don't know if it is worth mentioning, but I like red peppers and the floor was a polished brick/tile). I didn't think much about it and went on eating my lunch, conversing with my wife. When lunch was over, waiting for the cheque my wife asked if I had picked up/cleaned up my mess. I answered that I had not. I need to add that sometime between the time the piece of pepper fell and when I was getting the cheque that I inadvertently stepped on the pepper, mashing it into the polished brick/tile floor. Things went downhill from there. She claimed that I had no concern about the people who would eventually have to clean up my mess and furthermore, I should have cleaned up the mess that I made. My opinion; although I fully agree that the piece of pepper fell from my fork, it was an accident (I wasn't playing around with my food) and that the restaurant does have people who can deal with this a lot easier, with the proper cleaning aids and possibly more graceful than I would have done.
