55. Kicking this. I've found that most tipped workers work damn hard for their meager compensation.

Many are on their feet all day long, dealing with customers who are cantankerous and impatient and distracted and self-involved. And, when they don't tip or leave just a few stray coins, DAMN FUCKING SELFISH CHEAPSKATES!!!!!!!

Hey, sorry to sound like such a hard-ass, but I can remember when I waited tables through college at the campus coffee house. I also was charged with managing the place. Both were hard jobs. I ran my legs off for people who came in for coffee and bagels and the live music we served. Many were parents of other students. Many of them were clearly well-heeled. More than once I had tables-full of very demanding people who ran me ragged, ordering everything, double helpings, extra this, more of that, sat there all evening, and left nothing. Or maybe if I was lucky, they'd leave a few scattered coins on the table. I never forgot that. It made me appreciate servers bigtime! Those folks work damn hard!!!!
