25 Days of Giving Day 19: A Good Tip for Bad Service

December 19, 2013

Tonight after work I went out for dinner with some of my coworkers. I’ve been really fortunate both in my current and past jobs to have worked with some pretty amazing people. I’m really grateful that I’ve  been able to make some awesome relationships that don’t stop at the workplace, and had been looking forward to going out to dinner with a handful of those people tonight.

So tonight when we had terrible service and it took THREE AND A HALF HOURS I knew I still wanted to help our server out. No he didn’t handle our situation well at all, but I knew that he wouldn’t be getting a good tip from the rest of the group. So I made sure to give him a good tip to help him out a little. Hopefully his next night goes a little better.

    I like this idea for a give, especially for bad service, because you never know why that person was having an off day. Maybe they just ended a relationship, or a loved one is sick, or they were up all nite with a baby, or maybe they’re just an idiot. We don’t know anything except that we’re all human.

    Glad you enjoyed your evening!

    You are WAY more giving than most people on most days, but this takes the cake! I wouldn’t have even thought of this – great example!
