'Pokémon Go' Is Creating Horrible Restaurant Customers

By now you should all be well attuned to the phenomenon that is the real-life Pokémon hunt, Pokémon Go, in which legions of nerds use their camera phones to catch fictional creatures partially owned by Nintendo. It's already bigger than Tinder! And because of the mobile game's augmented-reality interface, it's having a huge, completely unanticipated effect on restaurants and bars.

Turns out, servers are getting pretty damn exasperated with the annoying way customers are behaving while trying to catch a rogue Snorlax. Check out the tweets below to see for yourself.
