    Restaurants are always hiring if you want to be a waiter.

    Put a ring on it, they have a right to the house, the cars, the kids, your paycheck. And you have the right to be remain silent.

    You know I know that this is not what you want to hear but I don't believe in tipping not even to waiters I do it yes but don't believe in it why would you take a job that to make the money that you want requires people that are not your boss to pay to keep your standards of life I keep up with every penny of mine and don't believe in buying stupid crap if you want something wait 2-3 weeks and see how you feel it normally changes

    I always leave a $2.00 tip and always will. I guess being raised by a woman who cleaned homes for a living taught me to be a generous person. Some of us appreciate getting a nice clean shower room and realize your wages probably don’t compensate you enough.
    I used to deliver appliances years ago and 9 out of ten times we would get a really nice tip. Some days the tips would be a couple hundred.

    I just wanted to add.. Please understand that there are some drivers not making much more if not less than you. Likely struggling to support their families.
     
    dunchues, Coffey, tinytim and 2 others Thank this.

    Maybe it's because we dont see you. I seen a old gentlemen cleaning the showers. He should be retired and enjoying his life. So i left a tip. Waiters get tips, all because they talk and have a smile on their face. But we don't tip the cook who made our meal. Because we don't see them.
     
    TokyoJoe, Badmon and VIDEODROME Thank this.

    Wow I didn't even know truck stops had porters. Just figured they were regular employees like the cashier. Huh learned something new on the internet today.
