The $2.13 that we make an hour usually goes straight to taxes and we never see it. If a table does not leave us a tip (because we tried our hardest to please the over-demanding customer but couldn't)but we have to pay the bartender, bussboy, hostess, foodrunner,ect.. 37% of the 15% that we didn't make when we served you for the last 45 minutes. And an appreciative tipping customer could have been sitting at my table
: Maybe you should read through some of these complaints. As for staying home if we cannot keep a good attitude, it's people like you that think the customer is there to please you that bring restaurants down. It's a competitive business and many owners lose lots of money when servers have the kind of attitude you have. A fine restaurant will often change the mood of the individual that walks in stressed.
: Yes, dining is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, however, if it is not and it's because of the service, you get little if any tip from me!
: Tipping is at the discretion of the customer, it's not your right.
