A Conversation for Getting the Most out of a Pizza Restaurant Chain

Another Value for Money tip ...

Just an innocent bystander

For the first time in my life (yes, really) I recently went to the pizza thingy with the red roof. I must say, it was MUCH better than I had expected. Anyway, while trying to get my last slice of pizza from the pan to my plate - and not noticing that the pan was positioned somewhat awkwardly on the edge of the (small) table I of course managed to drop the entire thing to the ground. Not to worry, waitress to the rescue ! If I would like to have another one, on the house ? Well, since you insist smiley - smiley (It WAS smaller than expected so I was still hungry...).

That's what I call great service and value for money. Of course, this trick (which it wasn't...) shouldn't be pulled too often (at least not at the same place...). Don't forget to be real nice to the waitress either.

In Britain we don't encourage tipping as such in fast food joints. Which probably explains why the staff are always so miserable!smiley - biggrin

I'm an Aussie, and nobody here ever tips at any fast food places - it's unheard of. Then again, we have minimum wages that are probably better than in the USA, even though that's not saying much!

The red roof establishment in question isn't a fast-food place, as such. Nobody tips at McDonalds, but we're talking about a place where you sit at a table, and a waitperson takes your order, brings your food, refills your drinks, and clears away your plates afterwards. It's a sit-down restaurant. I know there's less tipping in the UK than in the US, but I just thought I'd clarify.

The type of place is kind of irrelevant to the tipping equation - It's a cultural thing. Us Aussie's are possibly the least tipping people. The only people who can regularly expect tips are Barstaff (hey they sell you beer that's worth a tip) smiley - biggrinsmiley - drunk
