    Keller's books are great, and his techniques generally are as well. If I had a complaint, and I do, it would be that he falls deep into the "hokey pokey syndrome." What I mean by that is that in...

    Explain why it is the way to go. Most servers, given the choice, would probably pick tips because the average pay is higher. People other than the servers don't really matter in the calculus.

    FWIW, the history of gratuity is that it is paid in personal service encounters and not for products. I don't see how adding gratuity to a product, say food, is going to work. Social norms can...

    Carrots are going to crack a little. It's no big deal. Also, they are cheap so you can just take a few mm off the end and go on. One of the problems is that while the tip and end are on the board,...
