If you have ever gone out to eat with me you know that I don't tip as well as the server would like (sorry Jason) 99% of the time. I make a great deal less that a good waiter/waitress makes during the week so I tend to get the cheapest item on the menu and put down $2.00 on top of the bill. I basically rely on other, better paid, patrons to cover my cheap ass and hope the server doesn't get pissed at me. I vaugely remember getting in to this discussion with some of Jason's friends from work last year at his birthday party (damn one of them for getting me to drink half a bottle of Crown Royal) and their argument was that I should just not go out to eat. That is completely retarded in my opinion, it isn't like I want to short the server. When my buddies say "Hey, let's go over to hoosawasa and get some grub" what am I going to do? I am going to go get some grub that is what. Any way, I digress. The whole point of this was to point you in the direction of a really moving post that deals with this subject.
On a funnier note, George Carlin will be coming to Atlanta on May 8 and I intend to be there for the funny. If you want to join me then leave a post and some way to get in touch with you and I will see about getting us some tickets in the same section. I will probably order them around April 15 (next pay check I can do frivolous things with).
