I thought this would be an appropriate post to reblog since Sunday is a holiday and restaurants will be busy. Please remember if you are out eating that those working to serve you probably have kids or mother figures that they’d rather be spending their time with. Be kind and patient and tip well if it is deserved. And to all you mammas, have a beautiful and happy Mother’s Day weekend.
I understand some people think tipping is a way for restaurants to pass off labor costs to patrons. While I do not disagree with that, I also think as long as servers are working primarily for tips, then we should tip fairly when eating at restaurants that have servers. I would also like to add that I am a church going (admittedly at times more regularly than others) Christian in my thirties. I got my first job the week I turned 16 at Ken’s pizza and then supported myself through college while waiting tables off and on. I do not wish for this to be seen as an attack on Christians or to be a religious debate. I would just like to share my experiences and thoughts respectfully about what it was like for me to be a server working on Sundays.
