When people question my food choices, in a restaurant or anywhere, I
usually just tell them that that's just the way I like it. It's pretty
hard to dispute that, though some people will still try. If the wait staff
says anything about my choices, it's usually along the lines of, "are you
sure?" And I simply tell them "yes, that's really what I want, thanks."
They may walk off shaking their head and rolling their eyes, but they do
understand me most of the time, and I usually get what I want, too.
I did have one pizza place tell me that their pizza wouldn't taste very
good without cheese. I asked to speak to the manager and asked him why the
guy on the phone would say that. The manager was appalled and apologized
profusely. I ordered the pizza, it was great, and the manager sent
breadsticks along with it for free.
