I am serving a party of four. The ringleader of this table was an old grey-haired lady who seamed to feel that poking me in the side was an appropriate method for gaining my attention, even if I was talking to the table next to her. This went on throughout the dining experience, and I figured for the sake of my tip I would just not say anything….but some sort of retribution was a must. As I approached the table with the bill I was delighted to find that “the poker” was not paying attention to me. Never being one to let opportunity pass, I quickly poked her to let her know that I had brought the bill. She turns to me and says, “Honey, poking is very rude.” “Yes,” I reply, “and its really annoying too.” You can’t put a price on that.
