My idea of horrible service is very bad. I am a former server and am very forgiving and relaxed as a customer.

Same here. We usually tip at least 20%, but we are very relaxed and forgiving customers like you. I understand when someone is just having a bad day and that mistakes happen, but most people can tell a difference between that and when someone is just a jerk, and I adjust accordingly. I'm usually more generous than not, but I have no problem cutting that generous tip if they are just bad servers.

Yeah, he was only 6 months old, he wasn't even regularly eating solid food yet, let alone enough to pay for an entire meal. All I did was grab some peaches and peas for me to eat, and gave him one slice of mashed up peach (which he at maybe half of) and maybe 4 or 5 individual peas off my plate. I would understand even if he was maybe a year old or so, and we actually got him his own plate, then I wouldn't mind paying for it, but that isn't what we did.

After 12 years of TTC #2, multiple miscarriages, failed infertility treatments, and two failed (not on our end) attempts at becoming foster/adopt parents in two states...we gave up. I stick around for the awesome conversation.
