Okay folks, I thought this was common sense/decency but apparently I was wrong. If you go out to eat in a restaurant please PLEASE give your server a decent tip! I know there are many folks out there who don't care what kind of service they provide, but there are also many who try very hard to give you an amazing meal/experience, and telling them how great it is DOES not excuse leaving them 5% (or nothing)! We get paid a lower wage based on the expectation that it will be augmented by gratuities. I love happy customers, and I will always do my best to please them, but if you stiff me, don't expect the same treatment when you return. I have bills to pay, just like you. If you can't afford to leave a decent tip, you can't afford to eat out. It's that simple. Stay home, eat fast food, but stay out of places where your cheapskate ways will impact someone else's financial situation.

Serving, but not for much longer
