If you have not read about this situation at all here is the information you need to know:
A waitress in New Jersey was not given a tip for a $112 bill, which was for a table of eight people. Instead of leaving the tip portion of their receipt blank, the customers wrote “LOL” and to the right wrote “1 hour for food” which I would assume means they waited too long to tip. The 20 year old waitress at D’Jais Bar & Grill was waiting tables for the summer to pay for school at Rutgers University.
Now I will not be a hypocrite and say I do not get mad at bad service at a restaurant but I do not punish my waiter or waitress for things that are out of their control.
Unless you see your waiter/waitress doing double duty in the kitchen do not be a jackass and not tip.
And if they are doing double duty, give them a pat on the back for me.
I also understand that communication comes into this situation.
Did the waitress let them know of the kitchen being behind? I do not know. I was not there.
Even when my service is deplorable I leave at least $1. Because people have bills to pay.
Your waiter or waitress is a person too and they are not always putting on their best face or having a good day.
Have some compassion
I am very forgiving. Some people are not this nice.
I’ll admit I get angry when tips are required and the service was bad (tips are required in a lot of restaurants in NYC)
But I still keep my composure and give the waiter or waitress their fair share of money.
Don’t treat the person doing their job as a slave.

So what’s ironic, is that as a past vegetarian, I will be writing this post. Keyword past. Please do not consider me a trader vegetarians, but recently I have been loving hot dogs and burgers. Predominately burgers.
McDonald’s burgers, grill em at home burgers, Steak n Shake, Shake Shack, you name it. I’ve tried them all since giving up being a vegetarian and it seems unlikely at this point that I will stop.
Burgers are satisfying in a weird way. Not that tofu is not satisfying. Veggie burgers are tasty and good. But veggie burgers are so light that they sometimes leave you wanting a little more.
This is not me shooting down being a vegetarian. If you don’t like beef or burgers (or meat in general) more power to you. But some people just cannot give it all up. I didn’t eat beef for at least five years and gave up meat entirely for about two or three years. Chicken is just chicken but when I tried a burger again, I knew in my mind I would not be able to stop.
Maybe I’ll celebrate National Burger Day by eating one, who knows?
If you don’t eat beef, try a turkey burger. Or if you don’t eat meat at all, try a veggie burger.
Everyone can celebrate National Burger Day, don’t just leave it for the meat eaters lol.
