While I agree it seemed like some excuses built in ($30 an hour comment was laughable), it wasn't a horrific tip. My question would be, "How did you spend $54 on just two people at Olive Garden?"
BTW, patrons don't tip based on what the waiter did. You tip on everything. Who cares if 2 people served you or 5 people did. They split the tips at the end of the night.
Correct. The confusing part of his story was his issue with multiple people waiting on him...how in the world does that change your tip
