No service=No tip. Good judgement on your part.

The only thing I would have done differently is; If I'm already at the hostess stand asking for my check, that's where I take care of it and walk out the door.

i agree with tim, if they aren't paid enough to enough for their needs , then choose to give lousy service, they need to find another job. i usually will inform the manager.

another bad service scene is checking out at a store.the cashier makes no eye contact with me and is talking to another buddy. i speak up . i tell them that i am the one with the money. if they make a bad impression i will not shop at that store. then the store will lay off people when sales aren't good. and they won't have a job at all.

i managed in retail for many years. in training new employees i would tell them, nothing (short of a fire or a hold-up) is more important than the customer in front of them. on the other hand, i always stood up for an employee if the customer was just being mean to them. sometimes when i speak up and give the lecture the people with me are embrassed.we have become people that allow bad service to flourish, because we don't speak up.

so guess i am an old meanie, as well as tim.

I never allow abuse, no matter which side of the counter I am standing. I've even kicked family members off my unit if they are abusing my staff or their "loved one."

Almost 40 years ago I was a young waitress. In those days our paychecks were next to nothing so we knew better than to give poor service. But in those days when a customer recieved poor service they would leave a one penny tip. This told the waitress that she had done a poor job and left no doubt that she was not being stiffed by a customer who is just too cheap to tip. But I doubt that today a server would have any idea what it means.
