Re: Waitress Denied Tip for 'Gay Lifestyle' Gets Flood of Support

The west coast is a pretty good place to make a living in general, but I think Washington is the best of the 3. Oregon still has a stiff income tax and California seems to think they're a separate country.

Yeah, and I saw it in that Larry the Cable Guy movie, so it had to be real!

We did not have to declare our tips and they were not taxed in the old days.

I have been told that some people have spit on food or did nasty things to it, but never witnessed it personally, so I do not know if it is really true.

I had an old waitress argue with me that I ordered chicken wings one time.

I don't eat them because they are a pain in the ass to eat. Some people love them!

I always ordered chicken fingers and potato skins then.

On my way out, I handed her a quarter. Her whole attitude changed after that and she was nice and gave me what I ordered.

so is 'Portlandia' which can be pretty funny time to time...

also, if you've ever seen the documentary 'what the bleep do we know?', that's got a lot of beautiful shots of portland.

With my last post I was trying to convey that it is more understandable to not tip if the server is making the regular minimum wage. Here, in Illinois, they don't make minimum wage so I think it would be more acceptable to tip them. Since where you live they make $9.19, I can understand your point of thinking that tipping isn't necessary. Sorry I wasn't clear.
