    But that's just my opinion. You, of course, can tip however what you want (I just hope it was at least the normal customary rate).
    No, if I had dropped below 15% I would have said something. I usually tip about 30%. The service wasn't really that good anyway, but the LSU hat rubbed it in, especially since I think I've seen her on campus. I thought about asking if she was a Tech student, but I knew that if she said "yes" I would have to be rude, and I know better than to be rude to the person about to carry my plate from the kitchen.

    Besides, LSU is always classless, so at worst I would have been answering her in kind. :icon_wink:

    On the other hand, maybe I should have complained to the manager. This was on Friday night before the game, and I noticed a lot of folks in Tech gear eating there, I presume out-of-towners in for the game. I guess you could argue it's okay since it wasn't actually on Saturday, but it was game weekend.

    So, since this was on a Saturday and if she was wearing a Bearcat or Cougar cap she would be out of line, too.
    30%? Wow big tipper! The ATAC fund could use you.

    Yeah, my wife is uncomfortable with my tipping habits, especially because I only gross $10,000 a year in income.

    Last time I checked, the Bearcats and the Cougars were both Ruston-based teams. Since when does LSU have a campus in Ruston?

    Shouldn't every business push for wearing all blue on Friday and Saturday...i thought the city denoted it as "Code Blue" day?

    So first day of class, my accounting teacher has all the people raise their hands that are going to the game. I raised mine of course, as well as Juice, and Luke Burnette. He then asks who in the class were lswho fans...and after half the class had raised their hands, he called them "absolute morons"...he is by far the coolest teacher I have ever met.

    As an accounting graduate, I stand tall today, as a hunch over my computer. Thanks.

    Who was the professor? He will be rewarded.

    That deserves its own thread. I almost didn't read this thread because I thought it was all about Applebee's, and we never get off subject.:icon_wink:

    Well he is a Bama fan. He still actually lives in Alabama while teaching at Tech. Kind of weird.

    Ah, that's interesting...

    I bet that is one hell of a commute home in the evenings, and a 12 cups of coffee on the drive in... You watch, that Prof will have very bad reviews of him at the end of the Quarter all because he pointed out the Homerism!


    I have a small memory of something like happening during one of my classes while at Tech. It might have been Doc Stokley during one of his classes, and it could have been something said to a Tech red shirt while they were on the sidelines during a game...while they were wearing a LSU hat...
