Don't Get Your Hopes Up

One of our regulars comes in alone for a meal now and then. I waited on her one brunch shift and was pleasantly surprised when she left me $10 on a bill that was around $20. Very nice tip and I appreciated it.

Waited on her again, same shift, a week or two later. After I approached her table, she made a point of telling me that while she was generous last time, she does not usually over-tip and not to expect it today.


Word to diners: Don't tell your waitress what you are in the mood to tip today. Really, don't.
