The server then proceeds to be crestfallen, give you a facial expression that says "oh crap" and then slinks away.
Often times we get desert, and occasionally an appatizer which more than makes up for the lack of booze drinks and bumps up the ticket total. If he/she had only stuck in there they might have found that out. Sorry that you think your tip will suck due to a low ticket there Skippy, but when you are visably irritated by the lack of alchohol drinks I decide to skip desert and appatizer and you aren't going to get more than 10% unless you really knock my socks off. Sortof a self-fullfilling prophacy aint it?
I tend to add an extra dollar or two to the tip for servers who are still good despite my lack of alcohol for that reason.
I figure they work just as hard to get my Mt.Dew and Water.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
