I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that

So I am bridesmaid dress shopping with my daughter in law to be and my daughters.  Lovely girl.  We stop at a restaurant, after the book store.  The book store visit was scary since all of us liked books.

In the restaurant there is this digital doodad that will take our drink order.  Neither the hostess nor the waitress understood my

"do I tip it or you?" 

"oh it will take the tips."

"if it is taking my orders why should I tip you?"

The waitress may have understood when I explained the human connection is how tips work.  Now maybe it will help make the waitresses jobs easier.  The electronic type things they have on taxis made for larger tips, more honest drivers.  But still....

  1. I went to one new local restaurant, not a chain, where you order at a counter and come to the counter and pick up the food. It wasn't a "fast food" place. There was no option for "no tipping" you selected 15 or 20 or 25% when you placed your order. I had to go back to the counter three times to remind them I ordered hot tea. I never did get it. I hope that tip goes far as I will never be coming back.
