Rosalynd Harris, who works at Busboys and Poets in the northwest part of the nation’s capital, told The Washington Post she was beaming with confidence Monday after taking part in the Women’s March over the weekend.

    Eighteen-year-old waitress Sadie Elledge was working the lunch shift at Jess’ Lunch, in Harrisonburg, Virginia when a couple, in lieu of a tip, left a message on their receipt that said, “We only tip citizens.” Sadie, whose father was born in Honduras and mother in Mexico, is, in fact, a U.S. citizen who grew up in Harrisonburg. “I’ve had people make comments like ‘Go make me a burrito,’ but that’s at school and I don’t pay attention,” said Sadie, adding that the insult wasn’t that big a deal to her. But when her grandfather, John Elledge, heard of the incident...

    Most food servers get tips from customers when they do the job. All Sadie Elledge got was a xenophobic insult. On Monday, the 18-year-old waitress was working the lunch shift at Jess’ Lunch, in Harrisonburg, Virginia. At one of her tables was a couple that ordered two gyros and a salad. Elledge told WHSV reporter Isabel Rosales that she gave them decent service, but when it came time to pay the $26.11 bill, she found a surprise on her receipt. Instead of a tip, there was a note: “We only tip citizens,” with the signature of one “Ada M. Doriot.”...

    <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...

    New Jersey waitress Dayna Morales was expecting a tip after serving a party of four on Wednesday, but instead, she found a hurtful handwritten note. “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life," the note read. Deeply offended, Morales, who is a lesbian, posted the receipt to Facebook, and then sent it to LGBT group Have a Gay Day's Facebook page, where it racked up over 3,000 comments and quickly made its way around the web.

    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...
  • Larger Breasts Pay Off for Waitresses, Study by (Cornell) Hotel Professor Finds

    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...

    I guess in a way Senator Dodd's decision not to seek reelection means that the other half of the Kennedy / Dodd “waitress sandwich” bit the dust (so to speak). 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...

    Chris Dodd is one lucky old fart. The guy survives lots of heavy, HEAVY drinking throughout his life, the kind where you can't remember the crap you've done the night before and don't know how you got home, became the co-creator of the waitress sandwich with Dead Kennedy, and lots of sex with a number of different women without picking up herpes or AIDS, and the ol' boy comes down with prostate cancer this July. He's not lucky because he has prostate cancer. He's lucky because he's got an awesome private Senate healthcare plan, and a clinic to go to...

    So it turns out the Clinton camp didn't tip after all. Kos is running with this: Esterday said "nobody got tipped that day," and NPR should have checked with the Clinton campaign before the story aired to see if any tip was left and how it was done. We regret that this was not done. On Thursday, Esterday was sticking by her story. "Why would I lie about not getting a tip?" she told NPR. She also maintained that her co-workers at the restaurant had not received tips. A Clinton campaign staffer called on Esterday at the restaurant Thursday after...

A Clinton campaign staffer called on Esterday at the restaurant Thursday after the story aired. The staff member apologized to her and gave her a $20 bill, according to Esterday. The Clinton campaign confirmed that visit. The campaign also produced photocopies of receipts showing $157.46 was paid to Maid-Rite on a VISA card on Oct. 8 for meals consumed by the candidate's entourage. The tip was supposed to have been paid in cash, and...
