    I remember one time the waitress asked if I wanted anything to drink and I asked for a root beer, and she responded with, "Oh, we're out, sorry!"
    10 mins later, this family comes by and the little boy orders a root beer, and she responded with, "Sure!" and gave it to him. [​IMG]

    I always say we're out of certain items on the menu when I don't feel like getting the sides for them.

    most of the things mentioned have NOTHING to do with a waiter messing with someone's food.

    all the weak complaints either make the drink or not playing games....

    water complaints? if we dont drink it no biggie

    the party is supposed to leave right after the meal, we leave when the convo dies down or get awkward silence

    waiters are like celebrity divas cry about anything

    Hold on. In regards to #20. Kind of a similar question

    If you pay with a credit card, and then they bring back the bill and you sign it with the tip, do you have to give them back the credit card for them to getthe tip? I always just leave after it is written on the bill because that's how I've always seen it done. Do they need the card back? I hope not.

    ^^^no they dont need the card back, just make sure you write very clear the amount to be tipped.
