National Waiters And Waitresses Day

Did you write this down on your calendars? It’s National Waiters and Waitresses day today. Oh noes, you forgot? Well, according to Holiday Insights, you really didn’t need to do much preparing:

You already recognize your waiters and waitresses every time you go to a restaurant. That recognition comes in the form of a tip. The tip should be commensurate with the quality of the service.

You can recognize your waiters and waitresses on National Waiters and Waitresses Day by giving them a little something extra. In addition to a generous tip, a card or simple verbal recognition is sufficient.

Wow, even the Waiter at WaiterRant doesn’t ask for a card. His only input: “If you go out to eat today you have to tip 30%” that seems fair enough. As a former server, take it from us, unless you’re a regular who servers really know and like, a card is going to wind up in the same place as your chicken bones and paper napkins. Drop a couple extra dollars on the table and try not to be a jerk while at the restaurant and we guarantee you it will brighten your server’s day.
