I read an interesting little article in USAToday at lunch this afternoon. Steve Dublanica has written a new book titled,Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip — Confessions of a Cynical Waiter (Ecco, $24.95) Here’s a choice little excerpt:
Q. In the decade you’ve waited tables, have customers become ruder?
A. People’s social graces are diminishing somewhat. Civility is down.
Q. What are the five worst customer sins?
A. Not being polite — your basic please and thank you. Tipping less than 15%. Grabbing the waiter. Ordering things not on the menu. And saying, “I’m friends with the owner.”
