This is why it's best to give the money to the serving staff, and not the owner.

"Somehow, it’s a very appealing storyline…"

Eli, you made it look like that line was a quote, but it was really YOUR own comment.

Cause nothing's more fun than printing proven lies, eh?

What? Big Sven @ 2, click through on the Ben Smith link. You'll see those are his words, not mine.

I heard the NPR story this morning. The waitress's boss at her second job(at a nursing home) fired her because the local paper ran a photo of her with Hillary.(he's a Repugnican).
Can both of these assholes be declared the worst boss of the year?

@1 - Yes, always tip the server directly.

And, if I pay the bill with a credit card, I still try to tip in cash directly to the server. I always get the feeling that restaurant owners will somehow screw their employees on tip payouts if I keep it on the card.

A cash tip also gives the server a better opportunity to not declare it on their taxes, not that I would ever advocate breaking the law like that.

Exactly. Sometimes, when they give really good service, I like to tip on the credit card AND tip in cash (hint, it's not my job to do your taxes ... which go to stupid wars in Iraq and feeding Red Bushie comrades spawn).

Eli- sorry. I'm the asshole today (and many other days as well.)

Not as big an asshole as Sharkansky!

No, Sharkansky would not have any pangs of sympathy. He has no shame. The irony wouldn't even register with him.
