No doubt that I have eaten bugs. We all have, but I don't run through a swarm of gnats with my mouth open.
Well I get it but if the food is gross what to do.. I'm usually pretty nice about it

life is full of unpleasant experiences and unpleasant people, and it is unethical to do that just because you can without being caught. A rude customer is only being an unpleasant person, but a server who spits in customer's food, that is unprofessional and unethical. He is not winning my sympathy.

and with such behavior, I doubt these servers will go much further than being a server in their lives because they are so petty in their small world, with the little pathetic "power" they think they possess.

It's exactly the same mindset that makes crappy servers expect and demand a 15% tip from you even if they behave like a-holes. Look no further.

Any server that demands a tip, should be reported to the management. Those kind of servers don't last long. Although, in all of my years, I have never had a server demand a tip.

Likewise. I've never had anyone demand a tip or behave as though they thought they deserved a tip.

Oh yeah? I've seen servers huff and puff because the tip wasn't sufficient according to them. I've seen them chase after clients and saying loudly "Sir, I think you've forgotten... something!"


I've also seen taxi drivers pull away aggressively and screech their tires when a tip wasn't what they thought they'd get.

Hahaha!


But none of these incidents were in Quebec! Well, the taxi was in Quebec but with an Ottawa taxi driver.


Of course, it could all have easily happened in Quebec as we have the same bloody tipping extors... er... culture!

I'll assume if i go to Australia i wont need to tip..
