  • Once you have served for a while, you can usually pick out the assholes from the decent people. And if you are in a small town like I was, you waited on the same people ALL THE TIME, so you got to know who tips and who doesn't. And those that don't tip, tend to get ignored... That's how it works... I was making less than $3 an hour, if you couldn't be bothered to tip, I couldn't be bothered to answer your hoots and hollers!

  • No that wouldn't be nice. That would be mean. Maybe that is why I didn't make it as a waitress. I've always thought it was important to be nice to everybody. I always thought it was a reflection on me and my work ethic.

  • I was a waitress for more than 5 years and I learned to treat everyone the same and not even look at my tips until the end of the night. And I stayed in the same range for the most part every night.
