I am the leader of the server revolution! Taking the power away from the customers and putting it back in the hands of the bartenders and servers. Yelp off!!!
Many years ago, we declared our independence from the tyranny of Great Britain, and began our journey as a country. I’m sure that after signing The Declaration of Independence, the guys went out for drinks and apps at one of their favorite restaurants to celebrate the start of a sovereign nation. And they were likely served by a waiter who wasn’t able to get the day off, even though he had requested it off a month prior.
I can only hope that Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Richard Stockton, and the 53 others made it worth their server’s while by tipping him well, because he was stuck working all day while they were getting drunk and waiving their Cocked Hats around while folk dancing to “Yankee Doodle.”
The July 4th celebrations will continue on from today throughout the weekend. Remember that bartenders and servers have not declared our independence from customers, so when you put your “John Hancock” on your credit card slip, leave a 20% tip. Cash tips are greatly appreciated as well.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!! Launch your fireworks. Eat hot-dogs and drink beer. Sing the national anthem. We deserve it.
Now tip your servers.
Until next time… Server’s don’t pay their rent with compliments.
