The weirdest thing my daughter got in her Halloween loot was a pack of soy sauce but otherwise she had a good time and got a lot of candy.

your soy sauce trumps my "Who is Jesus?" pamphlet.... but still... who is disseminating religious tracts on Halloween?

I got far more trick-or-treaters than expected and ran out of candy, so I gave out comic books towards the end of the night.

I've been "tipped" in Jesus pamphlets more times than I could count.

WWJD? He sure as hell wouldn't leave a pamphlet as a tip...

It's one of the shitty things about working brunch. Church folk come in with largish parties, same group every week. They leave pamphlets and no or a meager tip. They end up getting a reputation and bad service. Not all of them leave bad tips but lots of wait staff are biggoted assholes who play the average.

A new party shows up in their Church best on a Sunday and get written off as bad tippers, receive bad service and leave a bad tip and a pamphlet because their eternal soul is in peril and they were terrible waiters. Both sides end up thinking less if the other.

Parents with young kids and black or brown people often get the same treatment.

I've heard some horrible shit, "I don't want to wait on those nigs." Tell my shitty coworker to give me the table and no I'm not giving them my next table in return. Treat people decent and usually pull at at least a 15% top in return, often more when they receive shockingly decent service.

I know a lady who was giving out coffee mugs. She'd just moved and discovered she didn't have enough counter space.... I'm not sure if they were an optional extra or mandatory in lou of candy.

a tooth brush.

"Yeah, thanks. because my kid doesn't brush her teeth most of the time and what she really needs is one so cheap you can hand them out dozens at a time."
