When I go out to a resturant, i always try to leave as much of a decent tip as i can. (being on a set income though sometimes i don't have a lot to give but i always go out of my way to let the watiress/waiter know how much i appreciate their good servies/ how i wish i could give them more if i don't have a ton on me) I also try to let the manager know (if they stop by the table- many resturants around here they do) if i've hand an awsome server- how good they were to hopefully get them a promotion/raise of some sort.I think i'm one of the few people left around here that actually calls the "how am i doing cards" some resturants leave behind and give the waiter/waitress a great compliment. So since i have a lot of friends that work in resturants- and i used to work in one myself- i can understand how crummy the pay can be....i ALWAYS try to tip. Now that being said- there has been one or two times where i have been in a resturant where the waitress was just soooooo vile and rude- so unhelpfull and a plethra of other things that i did not tip at all. One instance was where there was a bug FLOATING in the dip that a waitress brought me- i pointed it out to her and she said "oh, ok (insert a big SIGH and ) did you want me to replace that" Umm yes please! The lady went to the kitchen (we were back by the open door and could see- and to my shock, we watched her scoop out the dead fly, then bring it back Needless to say I NEVER tipped her nor did i ever go back to that resturant- that is just disghusting. I have had food poisioning twice now -and i will not tip/patronize a place that does things like that / However that is a rare exception to the rule- if i have a good waitress/waiter- there is no doubt that i will tip them as much as i can and make sure they get the recognization they deserve.
