I don't serve anymore, but I would never DARE complain to anyone if I did not receive a tip, and if I knew that I was not going to receive one, I would do just as good a job, because I like treating people to a great experience. Shame on anyone that would say a rude thing for the sake of 5 dollars. With that being said, my defense is for the people that work their butts off to get through school and that someone would say, "You've never actually worked in a high stress job to compare it to, because you likely haven't progressed much farther than a waitress on your career path." That is unkind (and unfounded). And I will never understand intentional unkindness (or the presumption). You are right, I should not have said, "stay home or eat fast food" to make a point, but I would never say anything unkind intentionally.
Anyone that believes that good servers do not deserve a tip, has never been a server. It is a high stress job, and those of you who have never served will never understand. Great service = great tip. Anyone that disagrees is cheap and discourteous and should stay at home or get fast food for dinner.
