About Me

Hi, my name is Randy Hill and I am just one of thousands of people around the world, tired and frustrated with the lack of consideration that is displayed by a growing "demographic" that I call, "the great unwashed and ill-mannered." People who can't seem to get outside their little world long enough to see the stress that they create on the rest of the population.

I've created this blog and online store as an outlet for this pent-up frustration...and also to have a little devious fun while I'm at it!

Have fun and keep it down while you're in here. Thanks.

Waiter leaves dining tips

By Randy | July 31, 2008

I read an interesting little article in USAToday at lunch this afternoon. Steve Dublanica has written a new book titled,Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip — Confessions of a Cynical Waiter (Ecco, $24.95) Here’s a choice little excerpt:

Q. In the decade you’ve waited tables, have customers become ruder?

A. People’s social graces are diminishing somewhat. Civility is down.

Q. What are the five worst customer sins?

A. Not being polite — your basic please and thank you. Tipping less than 15%. Grabbing the waiter. Ordering things not on the menu. And saying, “I’m friends with the owner.”

Read the rest of the interview here.
