A suggestion from an old guy who tips well

Published: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 06:43 PM.

I’m a huge fan of waiters and waitresses and consider good ones to be hugely talented and probably superior in marketable skills to most of those they serve. And I admire this young lady for working. I just don’t think her bosses are setting the right tone.

I think restaurants should insist their floor workers leave metal thing-a-ma-jiggers in their tackle boxes until they’re off, and then they can rig up to their heart’s content. Just a suggestion from an old guy who tips very well.
