A: If you are wondering whether the waiters introduce themselves before taking a customer's order then it depends on the restaurant/ fast food/ coffee establishment.

At diners the waiters usually introduce themselves even though they wear name tags. At fancy restaurants the waiters will introduce themselves. There are a number of other restaurant categories I didn't include where the waiters/ servers often times do not introduce themselves.
