So on New Years Eve my boyfriend and I went out to eat a one of those chain sports bar and grill restaurants. I couldn't help but notice the table that was on the other side of my boyfriend. They were ridiculously loud and obnoxious, and I'm pretty sure they were between 16-20 years old. Their server seemed really sweet, she was quick with their refills. She had a smile on her face the whole time. I remember this because I was thinking to myself I'm not sure I could be that nice to them. So after she brings them their change, they are joking about not giving her tip, or just leaving her a quarter. Then they get up and leave, bumping into other people having dinner as they leave. I looked on their table and they didn't even leave the poor girl ANYTHING for a tip. I think that is horrible! They knew better than that, b/c they were JOKING about not leaving her anything. I felt so bad I threw five dollars down on the table. GRRR!
She later came up to me and told me thank you, she'd had a really bad day and it meant a lot to her. So I felt happy. But still, I wish those people hadn't been so rude.
