What do you do at a restaurant if you received poor service?
This happened to me, where the waitress didn't believe that I was 21, and didn't think my ID was real, and had to call her supervisor over. She was also rude to me and my friends. I gave her a 10% tip. Was this a good move in that situation. Would you have given her anything?

In a situation like that I can understand being annoyed, but bear in mind how many fake ids they probably run into and how much trouble a restaurant can get into for serving underage kids. I know it's embarrassing to have a manager get involved, but since you did nothing wrong don't let things like that get to you... More

Don't go back is your best weapon. Note that in most states staff is fined for serving booze to minors so they are very cautious. This means THEY get fined not the restaurant so yeah sometime people will get pissy about it.

Im only 16 but this happened to my dad. He didn't leave a tip and he also went and talked to the manager about the rude behavior and the bad service. Other than that there really isn't anything more you can do, at least you didn't cause a scene and you seemed like the better person in this situation.

I live in Australia where tipping isn't mandatory (thank the lord!). Tipping is stupid!!! ESPECIALLY if you receive bad service. If I get great service, it's worth it to tip them because great service is very rare. For bad service like that, I would do whatever I can to punish them for it. Like complain about my meal... More
