UnderCover Waitress: Probably Not Plagiarism

Probably Not Plagiarism

FB Fan Page:

More likely, this is a case of great minds thinking alike.

I chastised a waitress on this blog recently for getting her undies in a bunch over people asking for water and not drinking the whole glass. Far from being a devout environmentalist, I believe she is simply and understandably tired. Glasses with water are heavier than empty glasses, and she doesn't want to have to clear them. She considered this an important enough problem that she wrote to an advice columnist in the paper.

It turns out, I am not the only person who noticed. Ask Amy has another reader who responded with this helpful suggestion.

DEAR AMY: I have a suggestion for the "Frustrated Waitress" who complained about the waste when customers who ordered water didn't drink it.
Instead of throwing out that full glass of water, pour it into a container to water the plants in the restaurant (or outside). At least the water wouldn't be wasted. -- Deb
DEAR DEB: Great suggestion!

Excellent suggestion if I say so myself. It was the first of two that I offered "Frustrated Waitress." I sincerely hope she took my second suggestion.
