Liberty's hilarious post on the 'minimum wage ' thread made me think we need a separate thread were we can vent about bad food, bad drinks and bad service. My wife has worked in the service industry and has no gripes with sending food back which always makes me a little uncomfortable as it kinda sets the atmosphere. Server didn't make the food after all. But sitting at a bar I will send back a beer that's all messed up. I'm not a beer aficionado by any means but when I say no fruit or veggies in my beer I'm serious. I also know my European beers and that's NOT " how they do it ". If I then get a lemon, lime or god forbid an orange slice the heat is on. It's amazing how many bartenders in that many bars across the USA do not know how to pour a beer. The don't flush the glass, they stick their thumb in the glass, pour it wrong, the CO2 pressure is wrong or the temperature is wrong and then they stuff fruit or veggies in it. I HATE that!!!! By the way, on occasion I do tip 50% or more if the service is great but the meal is cheap like WaffleHouse or similar. Some great personalities working at WH!
