Subject: Re: US Dining
Graziella really hit on it! I received really bad service, but if I kept up the stereotype that a single woman is a bad tipper, I think it would have hurt future diners worse. Everyone should be treated with respect at a restaurant, regardless of who they are. I tip well, because I know how hard waitressing can be. I'm poor as a church mouse (yes, even if my name is cat:) but I try to show regard for them in the hope that they'll show regard for me (or someone like me) next time.

Probably a loosing battle, but oh well.
