You're what the rest of the world calls an asshole. This is coming from someone who has never waited a table or worked for a tip a day in his life.
Pretty logical, strong point.
I'm not talking about meals, drinks, etc, I'm talking about the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. The point is, when you pay for more services, you are typically treated better than someone paying for less. I'm sure there's a better example out there, that was just the first that came to mind.

Do you really judge people by their occupation?
Why would you be concerned about the perceived poor choices a stranger has made in their life?
Would you be an asshole to an EMT who is trying to save your child's life? Would you think less of them because they "made poor choices" and are working a low wage job serving the public?
What exactly is your criteria for "success"?
Great thread.......not sure what's funnier the hypocrite pastor (15 member church=scam) or Giant Moose's douchie replies....

I waited tables at "The Chesapeak Crab House" in EL while at MSU.
If you are good at it (and I was) you could tell which patrons would tip well, and which wouldn't by the time they ordered. Then, you parse your time and prioritize service accordingly. I had one guy, a regular, typically ate alone, not a great tipper, but fun to talk with and he'd come in early prior to any rush. He got great service, there was no reason to do anything else.
If he happened to come in some night during a busy rush, the service wouldn't have been as good as he would have been further down the list. (He never did though, 4:30 clockwork)
Giant Moose....you are a prick....there are folks who didn't go to college for what ever reason, and those folks deserve a good tip if they deliver good service. Your policy of not tipping wait staff that is older than you think they should be is absurd.
The pastor in the story opened herself up to all of this when she decided to leave the note...if it hadn't been for the note, the photo would never have gone viral.
The server probably should be terminated for violation of company policy, but that waiters and watresses everywhere will buy that server a beer at any time. Hell I haven't waited tables in 25 years and I'd by her a beer.
If I had to guess... the more like himself, the more successful
So am I....If someone pays for "first class" should they expect to be treated or receive the same level of customer service as in coach? I would hope not. Same thing would apply at restaurants(I hope). A meal at a 5 star place should come with superb service and I would not expect that same level of attention at a Crapplebees. Now, even on the low end (coach and Crapplebees) the service should still be decent and at least attentive.

She must preach at the Church of the Poisoned Mind". The 10 Commandments have something about not testifying falsely against your neighbor. She must have forgotten that one.
I think if everyone had to earn a living waiting tables for 6 months and working as a retail cashier for 6 months, the world would be a much friendlier place.
yeah, I think we're on the same side of the issue, good conversation!
you can tell most of what you need to know about someone based on how they treat the people that work in the service industry. If you are ever curious about the character of someone you have just met watch how they treat waiters/waitresses, bell hops, valets etc... it takes seconds to know if they are worth your time.
I settle a ton of business agreements over dinner or drinks and if the person trying to schmooze me to get my biz treats the staff like crap...you no longer get my money. I just saw your true character, you suck. Its worked out well, because i never give money/contracts to assholes, which means i never get screwed down the road.

Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
Any change your regular was Mark Grebner. I worked at the Cheasapeake CrabHouse for a couple years (95-97) and many times he would be there by himself and we had good conversation.
Great place to work.....Sunday brunches were good for making money.
Won't ever happen. This restaurant standard is as entrenched as the two party political system.
Much like free speech on a message board, Applebees has no obligation to keep receipts "private" as long as they're not giving out financial information, unless she violated Applebee's policy, I think it's shitty she got fired.
I agree about just paying them more and not having to tip as much. It artificially deflates food prices to pay the servers, etc. so little, BUT places like Applebee's etc. need that pricing scheme to offer the disgusting quantity of food they do for so dirt cheap.
No, it wasnt Mark....I was there a few years before you.....I actually always made more money working nights!
Graduation afternoon / evenings were really great.
Probably the most fun I've ever had at a job...great staff, go in around 4, walk out around 10:30 with a pocket full of cash....walk across the street for beers with your co-workers.
This made me laugh
When i go to countries where tipping isn't the norm I can see the advantages to our system. I've finished eating & have been waiting 10 minutes before seeing the waitress again. Never even asked if I want another drink.

A lot of chains make their servers claim 15% regardless of what they make. So if you have a $200 bill and tip $20, they are still paying taxes on $30, and tipping out the rest of the staff.

Yep, I guess things are just about perfect... it's making me feel kind of itchy...
How 'bout we go get kicked out of an Applebee's
Grebner? Grading the profs? There has never been printed word that was more spot on than that little book, IMO.
reminds me of the bar and grill my little sister used to work at down in Boca
once the snow birds came down form the east coast, the owner would take coffee and free beverage refills off the menu
these old fucks would sit for hours, steal the sugar and tip like shit. Once the word got out about no coffee and refills, problem solved

Don't want to be harassed? Don't harass the staff and shove God in their face while you stiff them on their tip.
If she had just put a zero, the only people that would know about it would be the staff there.
It's gonna be hilarious when God gives this pastor a pustulant anal fistula.
