tipping - don't forget to

This may be marginal for the list, but want to remind people to tip their waitstaff, especially now. I read an article about how restaurants, feeling the economic pinch, are cutting staff, meaning the remaining staff works harder than before. Especially in local places, where prices are not real high, this means the waitstaff is working harder for low wages and lower tips. If you have a favorite local spot, be sure to tip appropriately.

I went out for a quick breakfast at a local place last week, I saw a table of 4 and a table of 2 near me both stiff the server. She did a fine job, was pleasant, took orders promptly, refilled coffee, etc. I left her a bit larger tip than I needed to, I just felt so badly for her. It simply isn't right.
