We've all been in crazy situations, and I want to know how you handle entertaining fiascoes and bad restaurant behavior. I'll present a situation and you tell me what you would do. Here's the latest scenario:
You're at a small (but popular) restaurant that sells burgers and sausages to go. When you place your order you're told by the abrasive girl at the counter that your wait will be at least 15 minutes.
Ten minutes into your wait, she suddenly cries out to everyone present:
Hey, listen up everybody! The tip jar is right here, and if you could make a generous contribution that would be great . . . dollars only, please!
What would you do?

When this happened to me at a San Francisco restaurant, I was so stunned I wasn't sure what to do. Thankfully, I didn't have to make a decision, because my sweetie, who was waiting with me, wound up putting a dollar or two in the tip jar. If that were to happen to me again, however, I don't think I would tip her. Her salty attitude, combined with her demand for a bills-only tip at a restaurant with no service would not garner a tip from me.
