I'm sitting in a restaurant and the tables are extremely close together.

The woman on the next table keeps flicking and swishing her hair literally centimetres away from my food and its driving me mad.

Because for all I know she is flicking dandruff everywhere Envy

Yuk! I would have to say something. Some people have no self awareness do they?

I would have asked her nicely in the time it took you to write that post Grin

ask her if she's got nits and recommend her a treatment.
Exercise class last week. Woman at the front spent the whole hour doing and redoing and swishing her hair. Angry

Next time she does it just say "oops careful your hair nearly went in my food then, you don't want in it"

I would swish back - just twice (with immediate and very prominent effect lol!)

Therapyornot · 04/07/2017 15:51

Now she's dancing and swaying to the music (whilst swishing her hair!) nearly got me in the eye!

I'm going to have to say something along the lines of Cwitch's suggestion

Ask her for confirmation she doesn't have nits. . .

Cough or sneeze in her hair. She'd soon keep it out of your way. Grin😷

Even better, let her get food in her hair. Hold a forkful of food nonchalantly in the firing line and let her swish in to it. You lose one forkful of your lunch but it's a sacrifice for the greater good.

brandish your cutlery around and get a fork in her hair, that'll stop her.

Is it Kristen Stewart?

or get a glass or something very sticky and fruity and next time she swishes shriek, and accidentally hurl your drink over her, claiming you though a giant hairy spider was jumping at you.

I was on a long haul flight once and the woman in the seat in front swished so violently that her hair HUNG over the back of her seat onto my tray.

So I leaned on it. Didn't happen again. Grin

Order some greasy chips and garlic mayo. Do some swishing of your own! Grin

GirlInASwirl · 04/07/2017 16:14

I hear spaghetti has huge cling-on potential!

BitOutOfPractice · 04/07/2017 16:16

Drives me mad. That chewing gum you had in earlier...

Ktown · 04/07/2017 16:17

I would state loudly that you have nits and they can junior quite far

Surely it is just a teen girl? It is abbot of a thing at the moment with them

Therapyornot · 04/07/2017 16:21

Ktown not a teen. Looks like she's in her early/mid twenties. Anyway I finished my meal and got up to pay and accidentally knocked a glass of water over her! It actually was a genuine accident but I can't help thinking my subconscious was at work here Grin

Where is that restaurant? You should've complained to the manager about the closeness of the tables , that's bonkers Grin

diddl · 04/07/2017 16:29

Have you got an elastic hair band to offer her?Grin

AvoidingCallenetics · 04/07/2017 16:34

It is a pet peeve of mine that restaurants put tables so close together. Especially expensive ones. If I've gone out for dinner with dh, I want to enjoy the rare opportunity to speak to him privately. I don't want to hear other people's conversations esp if they are talking about sloping off to the loo for a quickie or feel like I am having dinner in a group!

Anyway, can you tell the restautant that this eas a problem and it made you uncomfortable and reluctant to return?

MrsTerryPratchett · 04/07/2017 16:37

Is she flirting with someone?
