    Elly and the other lady really got served! (As for the man in the corner, he probably got good service.)

    It’s tough when you are trying to have a nice dinner out with your new girlfriend and then the service is bad. As for me, I prefer it when the restaurant is full of customers. I find I get better service when the place is busy than when the place is nearly empty as this restaurant appears to be.
    I hope this storyline doesn’t turn into a rant about waitresses.

    There was a time when etiquette suggested that women did not tip as well as men (presumably because the men made all the money), and as a result women received poor service.

    It’s mainly by service level. A person who does their job with a smile and is courteous is going to get a lot more tips than a person who does poor service. A good rule is to treat customers how you would like to be treated. Ignoring a customer like the first panel does happen and it usually means no tip or a reduced tip. It also means the manager is probably going to fire that person if they make a practice of being rude to customers.

    I went to a great restaurant with my hubby and had great service. Following week, took 3 girlfriends and were ignored. It was awful. Never went there again, so the whole restaurant suffered, not just the waiter.

    We just had Tuesday breakfast in the Veranda Room of the St James Hotel. A lot of food for the money (leftovers for 3 days – I should have taken a minute to meet the cook), great service. All very Midwestern and friendly.

    It is still a fact that girls don’t tip like boys. After 32 years, my wife still gives me static about over-tipping. When we go to our normal eateries, I NEVER have a problem with service. I wonder why? Seriously, it’s only a couple bucks here or there- why do women have to make such a big deal about it?

    Mainly because it’s closing time…

    @bwana…at my house it’s the opposite. My (former) spouse was (probably still is) a very “frugal” tipper. I put myself through college by waiting tables…trust me I am a very generous tipper!

    If you talk to any current waitress the low tipping is still the case. I don’t know about them getting poor service though.
