    <p>Lets start with the "boys don't tip" part, since Sapp wrote it in giant letters across the check.</p> <p>The waitress' explanation?</p> <p>"We were busy. I walked over to his table. It was him and one other guy and I said, 'Hey boys, what I can I get you to drink?' And he was like 'We're not boys. I'm a man,'" the waitress said. "I mean, saying 'Hey men, what do you want to drink?' sounds kind of weird, I think. I go with 'boys' a lot. It sounds more youthful."</p>

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona judge on Monday set a September court date to try again to determine whether convicted murderer Jodi Arias will be put to death for killing her ex-boyfriend nearly six years ago, court officials said. Arias was convicted by a jury in May 2013 of murdering Travis Alexander, whose body was found slumped in the shower of his suburban Phoenix home in June 2008. He had been stabbed multiple times, shot in the face and had his throat slashed. But the jury deadlocked on whether the former California waitress should be executed or face life in...

    BRIDGEWATER— After the story of a lesbian, ex-Marine waitress who claimed she was left an anti-gay note in place of a tip caught worldwide attention, she promised she'd donate the replacement "tips" she started receiving from supporters to the Wounded Warrior Project. But the organization, which supports injured service members, couldn't verify it had yet received any donations from Dayna Morales, who has been off the schedule at Gallop Asian Bistro since a couple claimed the note was a fake, Patch reports.

    A gay server at a New Jersey restaurant who made headlines when she claimed a couple did not tip her because of her lesbian lifestyle may have some explaining to do. A couple came forward to say they were the ones who Danya Morales waited on at the Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, and they produced a receipt and credit card statement showing that they in fact did leave a tip – about 20 percent of their bill before taxes, New York’s WNBC-TV reported.

    BRIDGEWATER, NJ, November 26, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A lesbian waitress' story about anti-gay patrons who wrote on her receipt that they refused to tip because they do not “agree with your lifestyle” is a “fraud,” according to the family involved. A man and woman, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted New York's NBC 4 to say not only did they not write the message, but they actually left the waitress a tip. Earlier this month former Marine Dayna Morales said she served a rude couple at the Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Dayna Morales, Dayna Morales Instead of...

    I do not know Courtney Scaramella’s faith life. But I applaud the 23-year-old waitress for taking a stand against the owner and general manager of the Los Angeles sports bar where she worked when they decided to sex up the uniforms worn by female employees. When she was hired by the sports bar nearly five years ago, Courtney and her fellow female employees wore a uniform of shirt and pants. But that changed recently, when the ownership ordered waitresses to wear tiny little school-girl skirts. Courtney went so far as to try on the skirt, but the petite young woman...

    Stacy Knutson, a struggling Minnesota waitress and mother of five, says she was searching for a "miracle" to help her family with financial problems. But that "miracle" quickly came and went after police seized a $12,000 tip that was left at her table. Knutson filed a lawsuit in Clay County District Court stating that the money is rightfully hers. Police argue it is drug money. Knutson was working at the Fryn' Pan in Moorhead, Minn., when, according to her attorney, Craig Richie, a woman left a to-go box from another restaurant on the table. Knutson followed the woman to her...

    Prof. Michael Lynn, marketing and tourism, surveyed 374 waitresses about their perceived “sexiness,” breast size and other physical characteristics and correlated these results with the amount of tips the waitresses received. His results indicate that evolutionary instinct trumps the ideals many patrons profess. Though most customers say they reward service, Lynn reports that quality of service has less than a 2-percent effect on the actual tip. Instead, he found that waitresses with larger bra sizes received higher tips — as did women with blonde hair and slender bodies..... Lynn explained that his study could be useful to a potential waitress...

If you are like I was just a few months ago and have no idea what a “waitress sandwich” is, just go to Google as I did while trying to verify a story. It is apparently more well known than I knew because all one has to do to pull up 128,000 articles on this subject is to type “Kennedy D” and Google will fill in the rest for you...

Her personal plight is intercut with the stodgiest moments of Romney's speech for maximum dramatic effect.

    ANGOLA, Ind. -- A waitress got more than a $5 tip for her friendly service. She also got a $10,000 gift. Jessica Osborne was so overcome she cried so hard she could barely breathe. When she told a co-worker what had happened she called her a liar. ''I got that a lot,'' Osborne said. The money came from a mother and her two sons who want to remain anonymous. The three were regular customers at the Pizza Hut in Angola and she remembered their order: two Mountain Dews, a cup of hot water for a bag of tea the woman...

    There is an image at the conclusion of Adrienne Shelly's "Waitress" that producer Michael Roiff can't get out of his mind. It's of Shelly's young daughter, Sophie, walking down a dirt road with her onscreen mother, played by Keri Russell. "Yeah, that's the one that I think is the hardest for all of us," Roiff says. What makes it hard is that Shelly died last November, shortly before the film was accepted to the Sundance Film Festival, where it subsequently became a hit (it opened in New York last week). Now, of course, Shelly will never know what became of...
