Breakfast In America

OK, OK Mangey, I am posting!!! Geezzz!!! Anyway, the parental units have arrived...and brought loads and loads o' chocolate!! So by the time October arrives I will probably be 10 pounds heavier...no, I won't do that to myself as I know how hard it will be to get those 10 pounds off.....

Anyway..got them out of the house for a bit, as Satan has taken them to Walmart and I gave Satan Sr. a mission to count how many obese greasy haired white trash people he can find in Walmart, as they should be out in full force at this time of the day...like I said, I am not one for being pc......

And speaking of pc......on Sunday Liz, Jen, Hil, evil spawn, and I went to breakfast...and had majorly bad service, I told Liz she had better not leave a tip...and Liz and Jen being the good women that they are felt bad not leaving a tip, however, Hil (who can be quite evil herself, hence she created evil spawn) absolutely refused to leave a tip as well....and again from my previous post from before, why do we have to feel obligated to leave a tip when the service is so bad..isn't leaving a tip meant to say ,"hey thanks chick for the great service, you went out of your way to make my dining experience a pleasurable one." Now a days it like, "Hey my boss is a scum bag and only pays me barely minimum wage, and now I am counting on you to pay for the rest of my salary!" Well, again, in that same token, if I am your "said " boss " for the hour that I am dining in your establishment, that I am gonna treat you like I am the boss. And if you do what you are supposed to do , then you will get your tip.

HOWEVER, if you can't seem to know the difference between a wine glass and a cup, then you are not off to a good start, and when you need to be asked twice for that cup...don't tell me you have 6 things going on at once, well, yeah, you are a waitress....... and gee, then lets serve us, but forget evil spawns scrambled eggs....and say oh, its coming....when you just served us omletes, what, your chicken can't lay eggs that fast, and you had to wait for the scrambled eggs?? And then look at us like we are the ones with the problem, when we are finished with our meal, and finally bring evil spawns breakfast, and we now ask for a container for it as we need to go.....and then take forever retrieving plastic container, and then wait another 15 minutes bringing us our bill, and then never return to get the bill, and we have to hunt you down to pay...... sorry this boss says you are a fuckin' lousy waitress who needs to get out of the service industry and find something you are capable of doing...and no I am not going to leave you a tip for your lousy service, not to mention, your eye rolling skills............

I know there are alot of waiters and waitresses out there who should be paid alot more and should get the tips that they deserve, and for those of you who are those people, I applaud you as you get a lot of shitty customers.....but for the rest of the crap servicers out there....you are not getting my hard earned money to pay for your lousy service...not gonna happen.....

Anyway, hope you enjoyed my 1st rant of the week....I was speaking to Jen on Saturday, and did tell her, I am not pissed off all the time...I am quite a happy individual, but I usually don't write about my happy experiences as I don't have a problem with those...but if any of you would like a happy story...I am sure I can dig them out of the cob webbed coffin, and write a few of them out for you.....

Yay! Rant on, Vampy! I eat this stuff up! By the way, love that new pic of you on Liz's photoblog. I tend to have that look on my face, too, when people snap my picture.

I had a similar experience at a supposedly 'upscale' restaurant last night...service was so bad the owner came over and actually apologized for the inept waitress.

Elizabeth said...

Well, I didn't leave the tip - and I haven't felt bad about it. This is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Pacifica. As Hil said, we think the staff was all sharing one brain cell that day! Of course, Hil and I had lunch today and although the service was good, it was just...bizarre. I think it's whenever Hil and I are together that makes weirdness happen....

PS- Talked to England Boy again today.

And apparently the Reeses' (yes, Reeses) low-carb peanut butter cups weren't satisfying enough - I hust had ANOTHER sundae!

But now I thrown out the rest of that damn ice cream!

Jennifer said...

I dont know where I get my compassion from, but I guess I just felt like some tip was necessary, to say.. 'you kind of did your job but not good enough'... for two reasons, 1)they were total airheads and 2) being the airheads that they were, they probably thought you forgot the tip all together instead of purposely leaving it out.

But I know I have bad days and maybe they were just having a bad day, they didn't smile much at all. Maybe a relative died... maybe they have mentral cramps... you never know what's going on in someone else's life.

But you did what you wanted to do, that's just my opinion. (speaking to you, liz and hil) :)

I went to this dive bar for dinner last night. The check was $43 which I put on my debit card, and left $8 tip in cash. My bank's web site is saying that I have an outstanding $97 charge to the dive bar. I'm like, what the fuck? I think an $8 tip is not too bad for that total. I'm hoping it's just some kind of mistake.

Autumn said...

I was in a similar situation and the friends did not leave a tip.. hehehehehee

Elizabeth said...

Bunny, it probably is an error - I get stuff like that (in "pending" status) all the time on my debit card. Check in a day or two and if it's not gone, then of course dispute it. But most likely it will disappear, and the correct amount will be there.
