Don't get me started!

Oh! Well, there you go. You went and got me started. Well, too bad for you, but good for those who care to hear the rants of a typical student/waiter/model with an opinion on lots of things that you didn't even know you cared about. Warning to all: I offer no apologies to those who are insulted by the contents herein. If you see yourself in any of my postings then maybe you should reconsider your actions, as they most definitely affect others, and not in a good way. Keep an eye out for future rants, (a.k.a. postings) as I don't see things getting any better any time soon...PEACE!!!

The purpose of this blog is to try to educate those who choose to dine in public and the proper way to do so. And for my first entry I'll focus on the sensitive subject of tipping or,(as we in the business like to call it), "pay". Imagine having a bad day at work and your boss comes up to you and says "Hey, today I'm not going to pay you." That's what it's like to get a lousy tip or no tip at all. So if you have an issue, allow us the chance to make it better, and if you can't be made happy, then just don't over-tip. 15% is standard in this country for food service, anything less is like stealng service from the server. SO...If you can't afford to pay for the service then you really can't afford to eat out. The tip is part and parcel of dining in public. Consider your actions and if you feel you shouldn't have to tip, then eat in one of the many choices you have that don't require tipping. You have no shortage of options. And please don't think that the "verbal tip" works. If you tell a waiter that he/she did "great", show it in the tip. Nothing bothers us more than working, being told we did well, but still only receiving only 15%. We're not working hard because we love you...we do it for the money, just like any other worker. Short of saying you're ugly or fat or stupid, a server deserves to be paid. And in the cases where these adjectives are accurate, a tip still applies...Think about it. And if you are not sure if you should leave that extra dollar, leave that other dollar, It's just a buck. And you could probably use the good Karma after all, right? Ciao
