Uhhhhhhh Houston, we have a problem.More coupons and more people that don't know how to tip. I had one table that not only tipped shitty, they had three obnoxious kids that left a huge mess.
Then there was the table that had a couple that I was just about ready to drop drinks to when the man burst in to tears. The woman tried to comfort him from across the table and I could see the shock in her face (the man was on the phone when he started crying). I dropped the drinks and high tailed it out of there to give them time to process what ever bad news they got.
It turns out the man's friend committed suicide.
They managed to get through their meal and I gave them dessert on the house. I felt so horrible for them.
Luckily we had enough staff to cover all the people that came through the doors and things went smoothly.
