I find her article contradictory on this point:

If you must stiff, for whatever reason, just do it. Don't tell me that you lost all your money, that you don't have change, that your husband has the tip and he'll be right back. Why? Because every time I bring a drink I'm hoping to make money, and if you're not going to give me a tip, the last thing I want to do is stand there and waste more time.



However, in the next paragraph, she says the following:


Quote: cocktaildoll.com

Ignoring me when I bring the drink is another popular tactic. These people hear quite well when I come around offering drinks, but when I bring it, suddenly they're deaf and blind, can't hear or see me setting the drink down. I never let people get away with this one. I always bring their attention to the drink, "Here's your Bloody Mary." I'll repeat this a couple more times. If that doesn't work I'll say, "Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you ordered a Bloody Mary," then start to walk away.



So, does she have time or not have time for "stiffs"?

It's both, I'm sure. Her feet hurt, those costumes dig in, the tray is heavy, and she's working practically for free unless they're tipping well. So she's sounding off.

I cocktailed for a while here and there. My worst was, they had let close to a thousand people in on 4th of July to a bar rated to hold 300, an indoor/outdoor lakeside place with no air conditioning. They had given up on us providing service; we were just going around with bus tubs grabbing empty cans, bottles, and glasses, and people were going up to the bar for their own orders. Everybody was sopping with sweat and drunk as hell. A guy seemed to be sympathetic, said "boy, you look really hot and tired". Me, holding a nearly full tub, agreed. Him: "Here, this'll cool you off!" and threw his drink in my face.

I decked him with the tub, right across his grinning puss. Standing ovation. Amazingly, did NOT get fired.

Using "boy" in this context doesn't necessarily mean "boy" as in a young man. It's likely an interjection. Like "Boy, I'm tired" instead of saying "I'm really tired". Regardless, dude deserved to get decked anyway.

I'm sorry tring. I guess I have to quit trying to interject humor. But it is my strong suit seeing as how math isn't?

Heck it was a riot on my end, somehow I think Babs got it? I know wiz didn't, I hate to think it is only me that thinks I'm funny however that is what my wife tells me often.

The more I hang around this forum the better I realize how poor a form of communication writing is, and what an art skillful writing is.

ps Babs is so not a boy, she is a lady

I'm really bad at internet sarcasm, but I will also be one of the first to admit to that. Hearing tones of voice really helps me out on jokes like that...whoops.
