The only thing stronger than a server's biceps and capacity to tolerate bullshit is their hearing. Waiters, servers and baristas hear everything—including your private conversations. And they have no reason not to spill your secrets to the other waitstaff and, if we're lucky, the internet. Just another reason to tip your servers, and tip them well.

She started crying and said yes.
