I am completely with Marga here. I have used a wirstband for two weeks
(at Oaxtepec), and for several days on other ocassions. I hate them.

Wristbands serve a purpose of identifying people who have /the right/
to have $service during a given time period, but they would not be so
useful in this case: What we need is for the restaurant to tell us,
"your group ate 185 meals". In order to do so, they must keep track of
how many people show up to eat. Having a wristband allows them to know
they have to serve $person but not $otherperson (and then write it
down), but if we need a token food status, we can spare them the
notebook — and us the uncomfortable damn wristband.
