We need to give thanks for (and to) certain folks....

... by 'certain folks' I mean: maids in hotels, garbage men who pick up our garbage, busboys and busgirls who pick up our dirty dishes in restaurants, and well, anybody who takes care of us, including our parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and for today I mean: WAITERS AND WAITRESSES.

Yes. Today I'm going to be thankful for those people who wait on us... whether it be at Taco Bell, or at Chili's, or some fine high-dollar restaurant like Del Frisco's (which I've never been to, by the way - but might want to go to on my birthday.  Oh wait. I want to go to Joe T. Garcia's in Fort Worth!)

Anyway, I want to thank those folks who wait on me - wherever they are.

And I want to thank Delta Johnston, a friend and fellow dealer at LoneStar Antiques (5605 Denton Highway, Haltom City, TX), who posted an important post on Facebook not long ago.

By the way, here's Delta with her husband, Dan (whom you might recognize from Artisan Center Theater in Hurst, TX) ...
Dan and Delta are wonderful people.

Not too long ago Delta posted this on Facebook....
Did you go there - to that link?
Did you read it?
Did you get it?
(Click HERE if you missed it.)

That 10-dollar-bill was NOT 10 dollars!
It was a Christian tract.

I'm all for Christianity, as you know.
But I am NOT for just giving out a little pamphlet about God INSTEAD of a good tip.

Waiters and waitresses get very little in actual pay.
They need tips.
Good tips.
... if you pray before the meal you need to give them a GOOD tip!!!
Otherwise, I believe you are a hypocrite.

And if you stay at a table a long time, you should tip WELL.

I know there are times you don't want to tip well.
Sometimes the service is awful.
But maybe a huge group came in before you did - and they didn't have reservations.

That happened last Tuesday (11/19/13) in the LoneStar Antique Mall Tea Room.
Two (yes, two) huge groups came in last Tuesday with over 12 people each... 
and well, it affected all of the service in the whole tea room.
And the tips weren't good.

And the precious waiters and waitresses went home dead tired,
with not much money to account for all their work. 

And that made me mad.
Well, sad anyway.

No mad.

Well, I'll call it 'righteous indignation'.


 So here's a tip: TIP WELL!!!
