Hi, I'm Katie, I just joined. I not a waitress but I do work for a catering company, I help prep the food and then drive to it to whatever function is going on, and then set up the buffet line, and refill any food or condiments. It is rare to get a tip, since most functions we do are for schools. But today was so nice, I got a $100 tip from a church group of little old ladies. When she asked for the bill she also asked if a hundred dollars was enough of a tip! This was even after I showed up to the function late, but I was able to get everything set up on time to eat with help from her daughter. The coordinator even went up to the microphone and asked all of the ladies to give me a round of applause for a job well done.

I have a question, do you think I got a nice tip because I did well, or because I may remind them of a granddaughter (I'm 21 but look a lot younger, I'm constantly asked when I graduate high school), OR because I wear glasses? I know this question came out of left field, but I have noticed I have been getting bigger tips than other servers. I'm still new there and everyone else has been working there for years. I'm the only one who wears glasses, and I have been told by a waiter friend of mine that he always goes home with like 10% more tips when he wears his glasses. I've tried looking on the internet for a study, but I couldn't fine one that involved glasses. Just curious.
