Not necessarily. You go to top places because they are the 5 star recruits. The 1 stars are at IHOP. They might be good, but not like a good place.
K, so you want a drink? Which one? Rum and coke? Sir have you ever tried Sailor Jerry instead of Captain Morgan? You want an app? That's an excellent selection sir as it is one of our most popular! However, would you be opposed to try the potato skins with smoked duck confit, serrano ham, creme fraiche and beer cheese sauce? That's my personal favorite! How would you like your steak cooked sir? Are you looking for something lean and tender or would you like a lot of marbleization like a ribeye? We can blacken that for you if you would like. Choice of 2 sides and my fav is DEFINITELY the creamed spinach. Goes excellent with the steak and pairs great with that cabernet you ordered with the red meat!!
IHOP, Hi welcome to IHOP, my name is Melanie. Are you ready to order?
ha, ha, well I go to a large church so I can't say that I have actually seen my pastor tip, although I would be shocked if he doesn't.
All of my Christian friends tip, well to be honest all of my friends regardless of faith tip.
I will say this do, getting off the faith issue of the story, I have noticed women generally tip less than guys, and this story does involve a woman.
Give me the second one everytime, I'm there to eat, not to hear about every flippin' thing you have in your restaurant.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
please elaborate on your question
Guess its just me. To be honest nicer restaurants don't do that much for me because I pretty much know what I want anyway.
Moral of the story is I tip well at IHOP, I do 30-40 percent there, maybe 16 percent at nice restaurants. Just me.
btw, if you came to one of my places I used to bartend at, you would tip me A LOT more than 15%. I did things like this, I bought newspapers every day and set them on the bar. I printed out crosswords and sudokus for people to do. I had a board where I wrote down today's weather and tomorrow's every day. I had standings up for sports. If it rained, I got the cheap 2 dollar umbrellas so my regulars if they forgot theirs that day or didn't know it was gonna rain, they stayed dry. I had EVERY charger imaginable for people for their phones. I had tums, aspirin, etc (all illegal by the way. you can't give out ANYTHING to somebody at a bar). I had gum, mints, toothpicks.
My regulars would come in and say, "this isn't a bar, this is home!" Because I coached hoops and bartended, I was naturally called coach and everybody knew my name. I personalized and remembered everything I could about somebody. I went ABOVE AND BEYOND hospitality to the point if your bev nap was torn, you got a new one. Every person that came there was serviced like the president.
I smiled, laughed, talked, chatted, listened, told jokes, started debates (my favorite) and announce a winner to them. I also played credit card roulette with a group of 12 guys. I would take all their credit cards including mine. If I picked one of their's, that guy paid. If it was mine, I picked up the entire tab.
Haha same with me, I can read the menu.
Like I once told a buddy of mine that was a waiter, if I freakin; wanted that steak, I would have ordered the darn thing.
I would do more than 15 %, but I also wouldn't need any of that stuff probably
"love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control will become evident in every Christian within the first few years of Salvation"
What, in your opinion, constitutes salvation?
Believing in Jesus Christ as your savior and Lord and his sacrifice for your sins, accepting him and asking for repentence. Then if one is genuine in the previous things Salvation (justification) happens and the sanctification process of God using the Holy Ghost in your life to change you to be more like Him begins. We will not ever be sinless on this Earth, but we will change, I certainly did. Good works, and things like the fruit of the spirit come into our lives naturally at that point, Salvation is not works base in that we earn our way to Heaven. But it is impossible to actively invite the Holy Spirit into one's life and to have an ongoing relationship with God and not have good works and things like the fruits of the Spirit as a byproduct of God working in our lives.
I have often said to people, if after what you consider your salvation experience if you cannot point to specific parts of you that changed within a year, you need to reexamine your Salvation.

til your phone died one day and you yelled out, "coach, hook me up, bro!"
Roger that, and respect. But you do realize you're speaking from the perspective of an Evangelical Christian, and that your views on salvation do not necessarily jibe with 'every Christian'? The vast majority of Christians, actually...
I do realize that, and I am always learning, some of my beliefs have changed over time, I have never believed that I am perfect in my belief structure. I think most Christians are not perfect in doctrinal beliefs simply because there are so many different variants of Christianity out there, it would be pretty arrogant not to believe that I probably believe something in error. But what I said above I believe are some core basics if one believes Jesus Christ was the Son of God.
Obvious it is impossible to go over an entire belief structure in a message board.
So what do you believe are the basics of Salvation, if I may ask?

Well first off don't let my avatar fool you, im not religious at all. Its just a holdover from some long ago thread where i was mocking some boob for invoking the bible to support his nonsensical, intolerant viewpoint.
I was raised Catholic though. So id say that all the human superlative things you mentioned would lead you to salvation, rather than salvation leading you to those things. But yeah i would think that accepting JC as the man is part and parcel. I think the fundamental difference (for papists, anyway) is that salvation is determined (or granted) at the end of the line. You gotta earn it.
And apologies if im misinterpreting you. On the mobile I often miss stuff/don't see context.
Yes Catholism is very much a work based to Salvation, I'm the opposite, I believe the works are the by product of God working in you, not you earning your way to God.
I totally undertand the error when people use the Bible to totally support their reasons for their faith, or what is right and wrong. I believe in the Bible, but without my personal experience of what God has done for me, it is meaningless.
LIke I said, my entire religious belief system hangs on Jesus Christ actually being God's son. If He wasn't than I'm totally in error.
And I think people who go around quoting Bible versus as a club to beat others morally are either 1) a new and weak Christian, or 2) just aren't a Christian at all. I firmly believe if one is truely a Christian, they should have plenty of examples of what God''s love as done for them to use as a testimony. People change because of love, not bashing people with moral rights and wrongs. For example that group that goes around and bashed homosexual families at their funerals. There is no Love there, just anger and I for one do not believe those people are Saved, they certainly don't know the God I serve.
Nice speaking to you, Hope you have a great weekend.
You as well
