    formula to get tipped-

    be helpful+be friendly+ask them about themselves and show interest+ offer them some coffee or driving directions + flirt a little bit = good tips

    This reminds me of that episode on South Park with the restaurant like "Hooters" for kids called "Raisins".

    Hey, Whatever!

    My Cleveland uncle who had plenty of money used to stay with us when he visited Florida, then take us out to dinner as a treat. He was a lousy tipper. Once he left a waitress 2 cents - she followed us out to the parking lot and threw it at him screaming "I don't need your insults."

    If you get truly bad service, the piece of paper seems like a better idea.

    yeah- the piece of paper could at least provide entertainment value... and you could show it to your coworkers while complaining!

    Yes, I'm sure that does work quite well. Unfortunately my uniform consists of a long-sleeved button-up Oxford shrit with a tie, khaki pants, and an apron. The only part of my skin that you'd be seeing is my hands and my face...although, I find it hilarious that from time to time I still do get hit on.

    There was one time when I had out-of-town customers and when they went to pay they had put their credit card in the check presenter, but little did the man who was paying know, his hotel key card had "stuck to the back of his credit card" so I had their hotel key and credit card. When I got to the computer to run the card through I started cracking up, and turned to the other servers in line and was like, "Yeah, I guess my table really liked me tonight..." When I went back to the table I gave the man his check presenter and then handed him his hotel key and said with a big smile, "Thank you, but I'm gonna go ahead and assume that you didn't mean for me to have this, right?" (this guy and his wife were probably around 50+ yrs. old) He turned bright red, and his wife started laughing. Yeah, they left me a great tip that night.

    Those nasty people who are attracted to personality or smiles should be shot. It should all be about boobs and arses!

    /Sarcasm (note for the uninitiated)

    Shame on you to have a presence which trascends your clothes

    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
