Back I like tipping if restaurants and not against rewarding a server for a job well done but something happened yesterday that really burn me up. Went to a restaurant for the first time. It's one of these restaurants where you order at the cash register. And then you go around the back of the restaurant to big pick up B or. That's fine out of the thing that hurt me was when they ran my credit card guy flips the screen around. And says this is where you add your tip. In this green gives you the option of adding 1520%. 25% or more. And I'm thinking. Wait a minute they wanted to hit. Before I get my food in before I can make a judgment on my order. Secondly there's no servers you just I just give my you're the guy. And I had to tip right then and there. And like an idiot I checked what Christian because I want BJ and good but hasn't stated Gary my brackets and to wait a minute here amen brother what's going and. How's. Had that is burned my career in for years. But I'm an old waiter so I'm very mindful not to get in the way of other waiters make him money. At this new trend. Hit them believed to have been people that restaurants that don't wade onion. Our drives me crazy man almost lost my stuff last summer. We were out in Cooperstown area campus right the family was and we went to this barbecue joint. Wright did was one of these deals where no news. AD you know you just walked in and it's complete chaos okay. You wait in line you hope here in the right line you get up there actually take your order okay it will what he had like they'll tell you the mini. So I guess it's personal. Yeah anyway you get there you pay and it's just chaos and you go sit anywhere you want. And they call your number right and you're like every error. And then though bringing yourself and that's it all you're on your own for all your refills. They're up again and it was the same thing will we pay they are like OK would you like to add. 15181.
