Jay Porter | Observations From A Tipless Restaurant, Part 1: Overview
I didn’t bookmark this when I read it, but it keeps springing to mind. All parts are worth a read, on the nature of restaurant tipping, differences between good and bad waiters, the male patron / female waiter relationship, etc. (via Kottke)
Happy 90%, Relaxed 90%, Awake 30% / Alone, or with strangers only / Indoors / At home / Texting, email, social media + Listening to music.

“A flavour of what might be in our future.” This must be @stml coming up on Newsnight…
@pkqk Phew, a lucky escape!
@blech @genmon @annapickard I think saving 30p per mince pie would have been the least complicated bit of that operation.
@tomstuart 60% OFF! REDUCED! (Felt obliged to follow that tweet up with this, just for you.)
Faced with 60% off Heston’s mince pies in Waitrose I stuck to my “No mince pies until December” rule. I must be unbearable to live with.
A social media pat on the back for @pkqk’s day of successfully debugging a fatal but very silent bug.
@mattsheret @iamdanw Yeah, BFI. Or somewhere else with seat booking (like Barbican) and turn up 15 minutes late. A gamble though.
@pkqk @alicebartlett You should see what Shashi says about you! He’s all “be happy and prospering” but he’s quite a mouth on him.
@alicebartlett @bergcloud Aww, and I thought me and Shashi had something special going on!
@TwitterUK_SME I have all of the email notifications settings unchecked or my accounts. Why the cock are you sending me emails?
