Valentines. You would think it is a great holiday to work, and it probably is in a lot of other places. Not at an urban Red Lobster. You might think people would be out celebrating, and would be generous. Wrong. You might think the guys would be tipping to impress. Wrong.
High ticket totals and low tip totals. One of the worst nights of the year. It brings all the classless and clueless trash out, and we have to paste on a shit eating grin on and bend over and take it. Over and over again. Now I know what cute boys feel like after their first few days in prison.
I think we need to start a system like some cities are using to shame John's busted with hookers. We need to photograph (mug shot style) our crappy tippers, and then post the photos on the internet with a blurb about their crime for the world to see. We could compare our customers to the database CSI style to help us make an informed decision on the quality of service we will provide.
