Oh, no, no, I don't tip. No, I don't believe in it. No, no, don't give me that if she don't make enough money, she can quit. I don't tip because society says I have to. All right. I mean, I'll tip of someone really deserves a tipping. Like if they really put forth the effort, I'll give him some next door. But I mean, just tipping automatically, it's for the birds. I mean, as far as I'm concerned if they're just doing their job, she was okay. She wasn't anything special. Look, I ordered coffee. All right. Uh We've been here for a long ******* time. She only filled my cup three times when our coffee I wanted filled six times. Yeah, the words too ******* busy shouldn't be in a waitress's vocabulary, jesus, christ. These ladies aren't starving to death. They make minimum wage. I used to work minimum wage and when I did, I wasn't lucky enough to have a job that society deemed tip worthy. You know what this is. It's the world's smallest violin playing just for the waitresses. So, it's working at Mcdonald's but you don't give the need to tip them, do you? Well why not? They're serving you food, but no, society says don't tip these guys over here, but tip these guys over here. That's ********. **** all that. I mean, I'm very sorry, the government taxes their tips. That's ****** up. That ain't my fault. I mean, it would appear that waitresses are one of the many groups. The government ***** in the *** on a regular basis. I mean show a piece of paper that says the government shouldn't do that. I'll sign it, put it to a vote, I'll vote for it. But what I won't do is play ball and this non college ********. I get two words for that, learn to ******* type because if you're expecting me to help out with the rent, you're in for a big ******* surprise.
