I think Jesus left a tip.
He was a circumcised Jew, right?

RE: Observations about America through a server's eyes
OK, it's official, Americans are the best customers EVER!

I had a guy today try and pay on a card we don't accept (and he had no other way of paying). Most people woulda had a tantrum about it, he apologised to us (I couldn't believe it, even I wouldn't blame it on him and I usually blame customers for everything), and even offered to go round and put his 15-20 items back himself, twice.

We don't accept cards that require signatures.

We have chip and pin which is harder to defraud.

I bet he stole the card. I woulda punched you in the eyes. Don't accept cards that require signatures. Evil man you are.

BC

You need to work in a better class of restaurant. And, if I'm ever in Columbus I'll stop in to Outback and try to get your section. You'll love me, I'm a great patron. I'm always polite to the servers, my wife and I always make our kids say "please" and "thank you" to the servers, and I generally tip over 15%, probably closer to 18% on average and often 20% or above. It depends on the server. Average gets you 18%. Making an effort gets you 20% or more. Being a douchebag gets you between 0 and 10%. The other thing is I never blame the server for problems from the kitchen.

My wife and I both worked in service industries. I worked as a cashier at a Pathmark in highschool and my wife as a bartender for years. We both make it a point to never treat people the way we were sometimes treated.

It's really not that hard not to be a dick to people. Common decency and respect seems to be a lost art in our society. Pity.

Btw, I would kill my kids if either of them ever acted the way you are describing. Absolutely unacceptable.
