After mentioning a good waiter, I have to bring up the bad one as well. Actually, I believe that is where the name is derived from. 'Wait' How many times have you sat at a table only to wait on the waiter? Is it the food that is the hold up? Do they have to run to the store to buy more product? Are they planting it out back? Perhaps they are waiting for the chicken to lay an egg. The possibilities are endless, but most of the time you hear the waitstaff having a great time in the back while you sit waiting. That is when the tip meters starts ticking. If the waiter is waiting on us, that meter reaches higher limits. However, when you have to wait on your waiter, the ending bill comes out cheaper as the tip drops below a dollar.
Which would you prefer, lower bill or higher service? I choose service every time. Happy Eating!
