Agreed. Seems to me, it would be much easier for the owner to tell each of his servers that he will pay then X amount for the hours that they work. This amount should be at least minimum wage. Then, if the server does a great job and the patron sees fit, he can receive a tip in the amount that the patron believes the server is deserving. No more making the patron feel guilty if the server takes 30 minutes to greet the table, leaves the drinks empty, brings out the food cold, etc. No more servers having to worry about bills if the patron doesn't leave any tip.

Exactly! It wasn't that the CMs wanted to see the show....of course they are entitled to enjoy themselves as guests! It was the eye rolling and rude behavior that was wrong. I was a flight attendant for 9 years and when I used my travel privileges I had to dress and behave a certain way. (I.e. If a paying customer wanted me to take their middle seat I HAD to &I had to ask if there "was enough" when offered a meal). If she was going to behave rudely, like laughing at group of people who are asking her to sit or move... It was just kind of dumb of her to ADMIT she was a CM!

LOL, I"m going switch gears for a moment and revert back to standing during parades from tipping, travel books, and whatever i missed.

IMO, if you get there early enough, you have every right to stand during the parade. Not only is it a "first come, first serve" basis, but also, when I'm at Disney, and I'm at a parade I'm not just gonna sit there like a stick in the mud. I like to stand, take pictures, dance with the music, get the character's attention and have a good time!! Thats what these parades are about and while some people just like to sit there all mellow and not participate in the fun, I like to get into the show, no matter where I'm viewing from! It's like the lyrics state,"hey! get up!!! get loud!! start pumpin' up the party now!!"

That being said, if there's a small child near or beside me that can't see and there's room in front of me, or near me, I don't mind letting them beside me if one of their parents asks.

Also, its like everybody else said, if you want a good viewing spot?? Then get there early enough and wait like everyone else

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face. And may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars

Are we still tlaking about people who show up to parades late and think they are entitled to the same view as those who showed up before them?

Closed as the discussion has drifted off topic.

Please note that tipping discussions should take place on the dining board. Please read the sticky before posting however.

General discussions about different cultures should be posted on the main Community board.
