Today, a customer at one of my tables left his phone number and a smiley face on the credit card slip. I was completely flattered until I looked at the bottom of the slip and realized that he had left me a $0.26 tip. FML

I agree- call him up and bitch him out a bit. Do it from a pay phone so he doesn't have your number to harass you, but tell him that if he can't afford to tip he can't afford to eat out. If he stiffs you like that, it's actually costing you money- you get taxed on a percentage of the food you sell, because the government assumes that you'll get at least a 10% tip. Educate the fool!

And Code_Monkey, if she's a waitress (which I assume she is), then there is absolutely nothing wrong with her attitude. Waiters and waitresses make almost all their money from tips--their wages are next to nothing. It's also considered extremely bad form to tip less than 15%. So unless she is a truly terrible waitress, this guy is either clueless or incredibly rude.
