This is Bloomberg Opinion Today, a local pizzeria of Bloomberg Opinion’s opinions. Sign up here.

You’ve been here: It’s Saturday night and the line for the local pizzeria is comically long. You finally get seated, only to realize your waitress is somehow in charge of 40 other tables, each with equally ravenous customers. Eventually, you place your order and try to distract everyone by scrunching up straw wrappers and dropping tiny bits of water onto them until they’re writhing like worms. After the awe of that wears off, you start folding paper napkins into tiny triangles for flick football.
