National Waiters and Waitresses Day

National Waiters and Waitresses Day recognizes the value and importance of a good waiter or waitress. When you go out to eat, they represent the restaurant, and are all the difference between a good or a bad experience.
You already recognize your waiters and waitresses every time you go to a restaurant. That recognition comes in the form of a tip. The tip should be commensurate with the quality of the service.
You can recognize your waiters and waitresses on National Waiters and Waitresses Day by giving them a little something extra. In addition to a generous tip, a card or simple verbal recognition is sufficient.
Waiters and waitresses should recognize this day by making sure by providing exemplary service (as always).

Acronym 'TIPS' means 'To Insure Proper Service'.. I reward both great and poor service appropriately. I also give a tip to the cooks when I can for great food.
Headed to the LASD luncheon in Vegas today - always fun to see everybody. Have a great day Sue.

Thanks Vanette. People I admire who do jobs I never would are waiters/waitresses and nurses. I always tip good too.
