    Reducing a business owner's revenue stream - particularly for a business owner as petty and vindictive as Metz - ends up hurting innocent workers. Do you really think he'd take a profit hit when he can simply let a few people go to make up the difference?

    Furthermore, as I've pointed out in another thread on this same topic, restaurant owners frequently assign shifts based on employee sales figures. The employees who sell the most get the highest-traffic assignments. Meaning if you go in and monopolize a table at Denny's for a few hours and only order coffee, the server ends up getting penalized with a less-preferable shift the following week/month or whatever.

    The extra $5-$10 or however much you're leaving as an "extra generous tip" won't begin to make up for a month of crappy shifts.

    Call me cynical. But the only "trickle down" economics I believe in is "trickle down pain." If there is a way for an owner like Metz to make employees pay for your principles, he will be sure to find it.

      I can see your point having managed enough businesses however I don't think you read my OP very well.

      Consume said beverage or cheap meal quickly.

      Floridians target one of his establishments once a week perhaps. A money hungry person such as Metz would figure it out. It IS about money after all.

      Of course you wouldn't want to hurt his sales too much as rectal wonders like John Metz would cry they had to lay off employees due to lost sales. We want the "real" workers to maintain their jobs after all.

      In no way am I suggesting an all out "assault".

      As much as I think Metz is a rectum I don't want to see him destroyed. I would prefer to just send him a message.

      Blanket statements are for IDIOTS until the IDIOT in question can back it up.
