Another tipping quandry
I know how much you like tipping questions, so chew on this:
Your Sunday column hit home regarding a situation my wife and I had last week.
When we attended a reunion in the East Cleveland, Ohio area, we stayed at a newly built Hilton Hotel. We had dinner with two friends on the night we arrived; there was only employee on the restaurant floor. She was the server, the busser and the bartender.
As a result, even though [she] was working extra hard, the service to our table was less than good. So should I have tipped a full 20% because she was doing her best, or tip 5% because the service was poor?
