The 90 cent tippers

Posted on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 8:59 AM

Two weeks ago my girlfriends and I head out on Wednesday night to a certain bar on Argyle Street. We sit, and the waitress starts off a bit rude and unpleasant — I put it off to her being on her rag, but then the server gets even ruder as I ask for a item not currently on the menu, and she gets annoyed that I don't even know the menu ( it would have helped if she gave me a menu ) then she gets our drinks wrong, is rude about meanwhile we are all trying to be nice, our food finally turns up and you can't even manage to bring the other drinks we ordered 30 minutes ago or cutlery or napkins, a girl had mussels and she had to open them up with her hands boiling hot? I mean really is this even happening? My friends never complain I always do but this time they were thinking of stiffing the bill the service was that bad between these two girls and the attitude I mean is it that hard to crack a smile? We were not drunk, not rude, not loud... trying to be happy and nice and yet you were rude throughout the time we were there and we weren't the only customers leaving midway through our meals. With an empty bar you can't manage a smile not once? You gotta be rude and snappy? Maybe your dad died but really did you think you were getting a tip out of us? you would have made 70 bucks in tips just off what we had ordered so far... too bad for your boss he must be a total idiot to hire such bitter bitches. —Don't Go There
