Yesterday after a big client meeting, I had a business lunch at a well-known steakhouse in NYC.
When we sat down, the table was set with white napkins. However, the waiter offered me, the only female in the group, a black napkin.
After seeing my confused face, the waiter told me why. His answer makes sense. I have dined at very nice restaurants but I had never been offered a different colored napkin than my dining partners.
Is this way more obvious to others than it was to me? Anyone know why I got a black napkin?
Post your guesses (or the answer) in comments below. I’ll post the response in the comments tomorrow.

I’m guessing it had something to do with lipstick and or make up.

The white napkin would have left lint on my black skirt.
Who would have thought?
