We always get straws after getting a water glass with lipstick stain still on it more than once in restaurants. Yes, we sent them back.Yeppers, and if they bring those packets to your table and you don't use them, they get thrown away. Same with other condiments and drinking straws. We always tell the wait staff that we don't need straws.
We went to Pearls seafood restaurant last year. Big sign on the wall saying no more plastic straws to protect the sea turtles.
I didn't know we had sea turtles in Ok, but just shook our heads and ordered.
Later that year we were in South Padre Tx and visited the sea turtle rescue station where one can watch them do surgery and medical care on the turtles injured by props, other critters, etc.
Ordered a soft drink at their snack bar and got plastic straws. Asked one of the docents about the plastic straw thing being a danger to the sea turtle. We got a roll eye and a short explanation that basically said that was BS.
We ate at Pearls a month ago. It appears they are issuing straws again.
Wonder what changed their conviction?
