    Managers and Key personnel are people too. There's a lot of favoritism. I've been doing this job for over 20 years (I so am ready to retire) and am good at it. I know the ins and out way too well. There's a fine line between being suffocating of your guest and seemingly ignoring them. There's a lot of acting too. I don't really care if you like your food, but I'll help you have an enjoyable evening out. You'll never know, though, that I don't care about anything more than the tip you're going to leave me.

    There are still a lot of people that tip 10% regardless of the service. There are still a lot of people that will complain just to get a discount. And just yesterday I got stiffed by a couple because there were babies crying at another table. I still had to tip out $2 for their meal, though. It cost me to have to wait on them. meh.

    Did you realize that in your last paragraph you mentioned irritations that can primarily be attributed to female servers? That's what I mean. Male servers are assumed to be better and have fewer expectations than females. I understand that very well, but I thought it was interesting that you highlighted that without realizing it.

    My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. My actions are the ground upon which I stand. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
