I didn't know $20.00 plates meant a 'nice' restaurant. Shit, Red Lobster has $20.00 plates.

Well, I guess it's a nice restaurant for kids.

if i was waiter... the only thing i would have for a customer who is rude and bossy under 30 seconds would be a fuck u very much... then i would get fired... it would be worth it to see the look on a bossy, self-involved, rude customer.

Yeah it bothers me a lot when people don't treat servers well because my mom used to be a waitress, and I would sometimes have to go to work with her and see all the shit she took from customers. She is actually a very good server and the type of person who is very friendly/outgoing, but she still didn't even very good tips. So we were really, really poor until she got re-married.

You didnt indicate minutes or seconds in your original post. Which is what lead me to ask.
Why are you lying about something that we can all go back and see for ourselves?

You're going to wait 20-30 MINUTES for a drink???? LMAO!

Somehow I just don't believe that.
Just like I don't believe you were being sarcastic. THere was no indication that you were.
You went on to defend yourself in such a way, that no one who was kidding would do.

Why can't you just admit you're high maintenance as hell?

I can be a very generous tipper when the service is great. I love going to a restaurant and have the waiter/waitress recognize us.

This one time at a restuarant, the waitress spilled tea on my husband and I and our entire table. I'm not one to get mad, so I thought maybe she's having a bad day, everyone deserves some slack. What pissed me off was she came back with a pile of napkins and handed them to us so we could clean up her mess. I was a very angry person at that point, I think I tipped her 3 cents.

i tip all the time, bad or good service.... because yeah.. everyone has bad days..and i cant expect good service all the time. and also because my mom is a hair stylist and the majority of the money she counts on is her tips... (a.k.a. my lunch money.lol.)and i just think about that when i go and tip..i just think about my mom and maybe that person that im goin to tip is in a similar situation.

I always tip, when i was a pizza delivery driver i used to get soo pissed when people would give me like $10 for their pizza that came to a total of $9.90 and theyd wait for their dime...i mean come on if you are that hard up for cash pick up the damn pizza and save yourself the $1.50 delivery charge. geez.

I leave 15% unless they are really good i give them 20%. if they suck ...well it depends.

last bad tip I gave to a waitress, she deserved it.

First they split our group up, and seat us across the building from each other. Then they don't even take our orders for at least 15-20 minutes. then when they bring our order they bring the wrong thing and try to argue with us about what we ordered. We wait about 30 minutes for our food to come back. in the meanwhile a sign off the wall falls and hits my brother. the waitress walks right by and starts flirting with some guys at the table across from us taking pictures with them. after eating we wait for almost 10-15 minutes for our check (this is after we told her we are ready for our check) we don't get any kind of discount for their messup of our order. We left a penny faced down. If i had any glue i would of glued it to the table for her.

no win situation.

but it didnt have to be, if that person had done her job appropiately.

the amount of my tip is directly affected by how good the service was

....and how much I've drank.
