In the same way I manage to choose the shopping cart with the screwy wheel every time I visit the grocery store, I also get seated at the wobbly restaurant table no matter where I go for dinner. It’s a small annoyance, to be sure, but a table that rocks back and forth throughout a meal can be distracting. It’s especially maddening if you’re on a date and that wobbly table is preventing you from leaning in close for some intimate conversation.
Fortunately, there’s a quick fix that is more elegant than simply shoving a folded napkin under the offending leg: thin slices of wine cork. Prepare a few slices of varying sizes, drop them in your pocket, then whip them out and pop them into place- to the delight and amazement of you dinner companion.
