We are so lucky to be able to talk meaningfully with others and express our opinions without getting angry and belligerent. Yes, jay is a sad case indeed.

I would never WANT to be you. You are a self centered egotistical biggot. I would never want to be like you. I hope that you never procreated. I could not imagine another generation of your hate filled rhetoric.
What amazes me is how you can have a valid point on something and voice your opinion in a civil manner then the next time you type something it is like Jekyl and Hyde.
Are you Bipolar also? Could that be another affliction that you have?

So how do you act when you go out to eat. Do you act better than the person serving you? Do you let your kids act like animals? Do you treat your server with respect? How do you do it?

What,exactly,do you mean when you ask "Do you act better than...?" That's highly ambiguous. Please clarify.

I always carry my own silverware with me. When I roll in to P&C for some serious chow, I have a serving fork in my left hand and a serving spoon in my right. I keep shoveling food into my mouth until I feel as though I might have another blue tarp incident like I had at Aunt B's. I also carry my own blue tarp (in case you're interested).

Is that enough information on how I act?

Ambiguity aside, I meant do you act like you are better than the person serving you because you think you are “higher class” than said person. I understand that some people think that all of the time. I am directing the question more towards the average person.

While I'm paying the tab I expect to be served in a professional manner. You servants know of what I speak and if not be prepared to be held accountable.

Accountability is fine. In fact, I expect it. Customers also need to be held accountable for their actions as well. Nobody is better than anybody else. Remember, if the service providers weren't there, everyone would have to do for their selves. We wouldn't want that now would we?

No American is more entitled to the rights and benefits afforded by the U.S. Constitution than any other American. In that sense, no American is "better" (in the sense of being more entitled to the protection of the law) than any other American.

In terms of adherenece to social mores and codified law, are some Americans "better" than others? Of course they are. We routinely certify that by putting some of the worst Americans in jail.

Now, does every decent, law abiding American have an expectation of being treated in an egalitarian fashion. Yes, they do.

When such a person willingly takes on a job that , by it's very nature, involves voluntary, situational, transient servitude to the customer from whom you hope to earn fair compensation in return for at least good, if not exceptional, performance of the particular personal service for which you have volunteered, the customer certainly has a legitimate expectation of an enthusiastic attitude of quasi-servility, at a minimum, on your part.

The doorman who snaps "Open it yourself, you son-of-a-bitch. Is your arm broken" is not apt to retire early. Ditto for the waitress who cops a "Who the hell do you think you are. Go piss up a rope" attitude early on in the encounter with a diner. She will not fare well either. "Waiters" are hired to "wait" upon the needs of the customers.

Now, civilized patrons of waitresses, cabbies, doormen, barbers, etc, may well be for more intellignet and educated than those personal service providers. However, that difference in socio-economic and cultural status does not give them - nor do they seek - carte blanche to be condescending, much less nasty, to siad service providers.

My experince has invariably been that those who put on aires and talk down to service providers are invariably nuveau-riche pretenders. Rude, obnoxious, phoneys. True class acts are almost obsequiesly kind to "the help."

A waitress who has a class warfarfe chip on her shoulders, on the other hand, needs to get over it or find another line of work.

Locally, if you want to see waitresses who invariably have exactly the right attitude, check out Sonny's in Kingsland. Joe Loomis has a great eye for the right personalities. Moreover, he weeds out his occassional mistakes very quickly.

Another place with consistently excellent customer service - all over the country - is Cracker Barrel.

I might add I've never had an unfriendly waitress at Aunt B's or Peas and Carrots.

And then , there is any place operated by Linda Cagle of Boston.

The infamous "blue tarp incident" reportedly involved an "accident" that might have been prevented by wearing Depends that occurred in Aunt B's and a blue tarpaulin that was used to hide the sight and smell of the individual while he was wheeled out of the restaurant.

You couldn’t be more wrong. Neither young nor old but right in the middle. Not naïve or stupid. I get so tired of going out to eat and seeing someone treat another human being with disrespect. I assume you would be one of them judging by your posts. There are times when I see that the waiter or waitress is doing everything they can to make a customer happy. I know they are biting their tongue to keep from going off on this piece of crap customer. As said before, some people just can’t be satisfied. I have actually told a particularly rude customer to sit down and shut up and if they don’t like it they could leave. I was another customer at the time. The rest of the patrons were very shocked and happy by my confrontation of said individual. It turned out to be a MUCH more pleasant dining experience. And yes, I did see the whole show. From the idiot walking in the door and being told that there would be about a 30 minute wait, until the idiot left the establishment after bitching about everything the whole time. There was even a discussion about not getting what they ordered and the waitress surely screwed it up on purpose. I heard what the moron ordered and the waitress did get it right. The stupid customer obviously wanted a free meal out of it. He didn’t get it. The manger got involved after I told the customer off and he did end up paying. Don’t take out your crappy life on somebody else because you think you are better than them. The whole point of this discussion is to treat others as you would want to be treated. I can only assume that the negative responses are from the same people that take pleasure in making someone else’s life miserable. If you can’t conduct yourself appropriately then don’t go out in public. Just saying.

Wow, I won’t include your whole quote in my reply but I would like to paraphrase some of the more ridiculous statements that you made.
Jay:“When such a person willingly takes on a job that, by its very nature, involves voluntary, situational, transient servitude to the customer from whom you hope to earn fair compensation in return for at least good, if not exceptional, performance of the particular personal service for which you have volunteered, the customer certainly has a legitimate expectation of an enthusiastic attitude of quasi-servility, at a minimum, on your part.”
Did you know that some people don’t willingly take on a job but, out of necessity, take the job to actually contribute financially to society rather than accept government assistance and live off of others like so many do? I agree that you should always give 100% into anything you do, but, as stated earlier, some just cannot be satisfied.
Jay:“Now, civilized patrons of waitresses, cabbies, doormen, barbers, etc, may well be for more intelligent and educated than those personal service providers.”
Now, don’t we think very highly of ourselves? When I say we, I mean you. This is a very ignorant statement at best. Did you know that in with the job market the way it has been that there are more “service providers” with college degrees than any other time in history? Did you also know that the actual possession of an education does not make one intelligent? This has been proven over and over.
Jay:“True class acts are almost obsequiesly kind to "the help."
True class acts would never address a service provider as “the help”. Let alone obsequiously! Check your spelling.

Just saying.
