Today:

Little G: These apples don't look very good this year.
Me: That's a buckeye tree.
Little G: Oh. Where's the apple tree?
Me: It's that tree over there, with the apples on it.
Little G: Oh.

General:

Apparently ACORN is a secret police group to ensure that Obama's health care reform passes so that he can kill everyone over 60 (?)

Also, around here at least, it's not really customary to tip on free meals, as tips are based off of a percentage of the total amount of money you paid on the food.

Also, around here at least, free meals are usually buffet style.

I guess around there your waiters must get paid a full salary then because anywhere I've lived they make ~$2.40 an hour plus tips.  If you are getting $0 on tips, that's one hell of a crappy pay.

They don't get a full salary. I just don't think anyone tips on free meals.

Although as I said, I've never gotten a free meal anywhere that wasn't A) A university sponsored event or B) A buffet.

And I've never been to a hotel, ever, thta had a wait staff at their breakfast places.

My Co-Workers are alright.  One's got a constant pickle in her ass that I've learned to live with.  But since I mostly work with females (waitressing), a staff member usually has "drama" with another staff member.  Its tiresome.

Otherwise, at work this week:
I got tipped $2.19 (included nine pennies) on a $48 tab.... during the meal, the man commented how he "thought his meal was going to be Prime Rib Beef.... Not Prime Rib Steak"
I didn't laugh, but I did pause in a moment of silence.

Waiting tables fucking blows ass. The people I work with are mostly related to me, so while we don't always get along, I don't really have any real animosity towards them. The customers, however, can range from awesome to terrible. We're currently accepting this particular fucking coupon that brings in some of the shittiest customers. We add mandatory gratuity on every time said coupon is used.
