What takes the cake is when the manager has to apologize for the server because she doesn't know what he/she is doing.
My feelings also.

I just got back from Michael Moore's "Capitalism - A Love Story" and I highly recommend it. You may not agree with Moore's final conclusion but you will surely be lead to introspect.

In other words, hijacking the thread as usual.

No. A little side banter is okay.

I went back to the entire thread and checked. I have contributed at least FIVE posts relevant to the discussion before I inserted the Michael Moore recommendation, whereas JavaPhil contributed exactly ZERO posts before he stepped in to scold me for straying. Sweet, Mal.

I would not "tip" anything to Moore...I'd give him the New York sign that the drivers use there quite often, which consists of two words. The guy is an idiot. Off topic, yes, my "tip" for the day. Now back to Alaskan tipping. The IHOP in Wasilla has improved service some; but food is sometimes served just luke warm. That's usually when I lower the tip amount.
