The Kindness Litmus: How You Treat Your Waitress


With this custom of tipping, comes a certain amount of power and control. How people use that power and control is an interesting indicator of who they really are as a person. I think every person who eats at a restaurant should have to be a server at least once in their life. You can learn a lot about people, when it becomes your job to serve them. You learn, for example, that the ones who shower you with wordy compliments about a job well-done, are usually the worst tippers. And there are other times when the tip doesn't matter - like when waiting on the sweet little old couple, who are still living in the 50's with their 50¢ tip, but who leave you with the most valuable tips about life.


Yes, please be kind to your waitress, and show that kindness in your generous tips. It usually reveals more about yourself, than any service (or lack of it) on their part.
