Makenzie and Steven Schultz recently went to a new restaurant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where they left a 150% tip even though the service was terrible. They were celebrating their wedding anniversary and hired a babysitter.
Makenzie Facebooked that the restaurant had one server for its 12 tables. ''So here’s the deal. Our service tonight sucked. Took 20 minutes to get water, 40 minutes for an appetizer and over an hour for our entree. People all around us were making fun of the restaurant & how bad the service was. Yeah, it was pretty terrible. But, it was very obvious that the issue was being short staffed, not the server. He was running around like crazy and never acted annoyed with any table. At one point we counted he had 12 tables plus the bar. More than any one person could handle! As I sat there and watched him run back & forth and apologize for the wait, I said to Steven… Wow, this used to be us. Waiting tables. I don’t miss it at all and I never loved that job. I did it for the tips. Steven and I agreed it would feel good to make this guys night when he would probably be getting minimal to no tips due to slow service. We walked out before he saw this and I’m not posting this for a pat on the back. I’m just sharing this as a friendly reminder to think of the entire situation, before you judge. And always always always remember where you came from.''

We are soooo happy to have the wives and girlfriends of the Bills back for another year of The Better Half Of The Bills! Listen Tuesday mornings at 8:10 to get an inside look at the NFL life! This morning Emily Urbik, wife of Bills lineman Kraig, gave us an incredible look at an off season in which one of their closest friends was cut from the team, they bought a new house and had to attend 7 weddings! Wow! That’s a lot of dresses and gifts! Oh…and we talk football too!
