      May I quote myself?

      The service is the thing. I've had a couple of servers who said "no problem" in response to "thank you" who gave excellent service, so I really didn't care about the verbal lapse. But most times I find that people who can't pay attention to details like that can't adequately pay attention to any details to provide the sort of service that merits a $40 tip on a dinner for two.
      How 'bout you stop "playing internet" with your pointless speculation about my mental state for a minute and read what I actually wrote? Or is that another "old-fashioned" skill to you?

      I think it's becoming more and more apparent that these patrons just want their ass kissed. It warms my heart to know that beneath every smile and nice gesture, the servers probably hate their guts.

      We've come full circle when I think that they should "get a real job."

      Snark snark..

      The problem is that once everyone gets a ribbon, there's no point in trying any harder than the lowest common denominator- and if you do, you'll be damned for it.

      Ah. The smartest person in the room who refuses to answer simple and direct questions. By the way if YOU had read, and thought about what you post, you'd see that almost all posts defending the fictional "banker" were met with strong disagreement.

      Please move along and pollute another forum.
      You're deluded if you think your insipidity moves me.

      Is that how other industries work?

      I'm not here to move anyone, change anyone's opinion. I'm here to engage in discussions, maybe have a laugh or two. The idea that people come here to change people's minds is frightening. This isn't the right place to do that.

      I do appreciate you going back three pages to pick out my response to your post, though.

      going to add a rant about a server the other night.

      typical local bar, friends and i go there every other week or so for their wednesday wing night (25 cents and they have good sauces). miller light was on special $2. me and 3 buddies. i had 20 wings, onion rings, and 4 delerium tremens drafts ($5/ea). chris had 2 delerium drafts and 20 wings. nick had an east end draft ($5). gabe had 20 wings and 2 miller lights. all-in about $60. not everyone had cash, so we asked to have seperate checks (on the menu, parties of 8 or more no seperate checks.

      meanwhile my brother in law and some of his friends came in, sat at the table connected to ours. we pay, i hang out and have a couple more beers. the waitress comes back at one point in the evening and bitches about having to split the check and that 3 of the guys didnt tip. i saw the tips, she made $18 in tips off a $60 bill. 30% . totally uncalled for.
