My mom was a waitress. I knew, early on, how hard her job was. And how little she got paid, relying on meager tips. Now that I am an adult, for many years I have chosen a restaurant to go to just days before Christmas. I choose a less expensive place, where the waitresses/servers likely make less in tips. After my meal, I leave an extra large tip ($20) with a note saying "Merry Christmas". I don't have a lot of money, but I have always had a soft place in my heart for waitresses.
