: I hate when I go to pay the check, and without looking the waiter says "is this all set?" Well the bill was 50.00 and I put a hundred dollar bill in the folder. Now it seems to me, when you do this you put the customer in an uncumfortable position, making him sound cheap saying "no I need the change." Or you just say to yourself "boy is this guy nuts". It makes the waiter sound like a untrained goofball. How about if the waiter said "I'll be right back with your change sir." reply "oh, no , that's all set.
: Try that guys, It works.

I am a former server who now is an assistant manager for a local fine dining restaurant. As a server I made sure that I always, no matter how much money was placed in a charge book, stated that I would return shortly with change. I also am quite sure that my servers do the same. I am not sure where you are located but if you are ever in the north Alabama area please feel free to visit The Emerald Coast Cafe!
