She had gone to the bathroom. The bill was well over $300 worth of food and drinks, all things SHE insisted on ordering. He solemnly goes to pull out his wallet and starts tearing up apologizing that he won't be able to tip. He further explained he was a server too and that she didn't know he wasn't rich and she actually walked out on him because he had told her he was on a scholarship.
I was flabbergasted, and kindly reminded him that at this country club we do not take credit cards nor cash, we only charge to accounts. And so her father got a hefty bill--rest assured he signed a handsome tip to me in her name. Last I heard her father cut her off.
12. I work at IHOP. About once a week two middle school/early high school age kids come in and sit a table away from each of their parents and kiss and and hug on each other excessively. One time I think the guy was getting some action underneath the table. The parents just maintain conversation and pretend not to notice. The kid is also a huge jerk who never tips.
13. I used to work at a very small neighborhood restaurant. Everyone that came in was a regular. Most were couples in their 40's-50's out for a quiet dinner, but there was one stand-out.
A VERY handsome man in his early 30's would come in, it seems, only to break up with women. About twice a month he would come in with a beautiful woman and partway through their meal she would be crying. I always tried to clean the tables near them for as long as possible but I never heard much of his speech.
He always tipped well and was super nice to me and my coworkers, it was just brutal seeing him bring in a new lady and knowing what she was about to go through.
14. I was working in a small restaurant with two floors. A woman and a man came in and I had a table for them upstairs. It looked like they had a first date because they were asking those "getting to know each other"-questions.
After ordering food the woman had to go to the toilet, which is downstairs. As she walked to the stairs, the food arrived. She walked down, tripped and fell all the way down knocking her head on the ground. (continued...)
