I know it has been talked about before, but I have to say it. What the heck is wrong with people not tipping at a (buffet) restaurant???? Don't you realize that your server makes at least 3 times as many trips to your table to clean away your never-ending mountain of dishes than if you are at any other restaurant? And what about the rice and chicken balls you drop on the floor because you somehow think that a buffet-style restaurant is comparable to eating at a pig trough? Last time I was at high-end restaurants (names removed), I don't recall anyone dropping their food on the floor or leaving half of their meal spread across the table, nor did they stiff the server for a tip. Remember the next time you are eating out, as this counts for ALL SERVERS, they have to pay out a percentage of their gross sales at the end of their shift, so if you didn't tip them they are still responsible for paying that amount of money to the restaurant. On a $200 meal that is at least $8 out of their own pocket and I am damn sure serving you was not worth it.
