To anyone who works in the service industry,

Today I turn 28 years old.  I don't know if I'm getting pickier with age or if things really are this bad everywhere I go.  There are people like me who think a waiter or bartender's tip should be reflective of the level of service provided.  Perhaps I'm missing something here, but I am of the opinion that the subtotal on my bill states (however marked up) the cost of the tangible food I just ate plus various other business expenses.  Your TIP is based on two simple things:  effort and attitude.  If you can't provide either, I shouldn't feel compelled to help you make money.

I come to a restaurant or bar to get away from my problems, not feel the wrath and/or apathy associated with yours.

Last night I stopped to grab a beer and some wings at Quaker Steak and Lube in Greenville.  The bartender was a jerk, ignored me for the first 5 minutes I was sitting right in front of him, never asked once if the food was ok or if I needed anything until after I had had time to finish everything, and treated everyone else at the bar the same way.  So, on a $16.50 bill I tipped him $1 (and he didn't even deserve that).

I have worked in the service industry.  I know what it's like to work for variable amounts of money on a daily basis.  I am a very generous tipper when good service is provided, and I'm more than willing to be a crappy tipper when it's not.
