    Of course, one good sneeze will take care of a lot of the problem :)

    Sometimes I feel like that happens to me every day!

    Opus should go back to his first idea – bacon and eggs… and I know just where to get the bacon from.

    Applebee’s is putting those contraptions in as well. We were at the one in Columbus, OH recently, and they had them. We didn’t actually use it, though. But why do you need a printed receipt? With all that technology, can’t it just email your receipt to you?

    I really hope TJ doesn’t have actual decision making power just because he’s a financial contributor.

    “Carl”? Unusual name for a female.

    Why would you leave a 15% tip for terrible service?! Waitresses and waiters EARN their tips. If you tip them for lousy service, you’re paying them for NOT doing their jobs.

    For service that’s average, by which I mean adequate, I will tip 15%. For good service, it’s 20% or more. For poor service, I don’t tip at all – because they didn’t earn it – AND I talk to the manager and explain just what it was that sucked.

    But if the service goes beyond poor to absolutely terrible, they’ll get a penny. That way not only does the manager get to hear how bad the service was, but the waitress also knows that not only did the service really suck, but she also failed to give any reason for it.

    Throughout the course of the meal, I’ll give her plenty of opportunity to tell me if she’s having a bad day, or if they’re shorthanded, or if there’s SOME reason why I’m not being treated as a valued customer. If she DOES give some explanation – or tries to give one, or even just averts her eyes, like maybe it’s something she just doesn’t want to talk about – I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt, and give her a decent tip anyway. So I don’t need to discuss it with her afterward, and I’m not “avoiding conflict”.

    I don’t like having to talk to a manager about one of their people, but I do it, because if they don’t know there’s a problem, it won’t get solved.

    Well, some things in life are more important than chasing the neighbourhood critters.

    We have a few of those restaurants around here. My favourite places to eat.

    Looking at that pile, I’d say she had to go back for a couple refills!
