    A Scotish Man

    has been going to the same restaurant for years every Sunday at breakfast.

    One day as he is leaving the table and headed for the door, a waitress calls after him....."Hey, McPherson, do ya know the difference between a Scot and a Canoe? A canoe tips once in a while."

    lol...oh the lack of abuse when you're not. One thing I've found around here is that if you're nice and tip really well with the nice waitresses(even if everything wasn't perfect) the first time in a restaurant, then all subsequent visits you're treated like royalty.

    For a long time I was on a first name basis with most of the local waitresses, frequently got moved to better seating, and received "extra" deserts, half off meals, etc... All because I was polite, and tipped well on the first visit(an usually subsequent visits since I was treated well continuing forward).

    Good joke though...

    When I was growing up my father taught me that 10% was kind of the smallest tip to leave unless something was horribly wrong with the service. My daughter, quite up on things, tells me that now 20% is the minimum to consider. I am not shy about even telling an employee's boss how much I was disappointed if they did something bad, but I don't want to send that message unless it has been earned. I do 20%+ now.

    'Course I don't go out to eat as much now, as when I lived in Fantasy Land (where I thought I could afford it).
