Does not apply to me...I worked and supported myself as a server for 5 or 6 years...tough work! And I don't hesitate to leave $0 tip for poor service.

That being said, I am not some hard *** who expects perfection. A lot of things are out of a server's control and I certainly don't hold blame. But keeping me informed when things go wrong will go a long way. Avoiding my table because you forgot to put my order in...not so much. In the past year, I have left at least a 20% tip probably 90% of the time. I can recall exactly 2 instances in the past year when I've left $0 and we eat out a lot.
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.
