Service in DC - Bad is the Norm right? [Moved from DC/Baltimore board]

I've been here almost a year, and I'm not sure what to make of the waitstaff in this city.
Does it pay particularly bad here?

I've done it all - ethnic, high brow, low brow, chains, indies, low dollar and unbelievably high dollar - and by and large the service pretty much sucks
- inattentive
- forgetful
- purposefully ignoring you
- down right rude

Or is this more of an East Coast thing? (cause I thought service in NYC was uniformly mean-spirited)

The only good service I get on a regular basis is my local Ethiopian place.

Southerners, what's been your experience?
Transplants?
Natives?
