We end the week with Elly wondering if she and Claire should tip the Waitress From Hell.

(Strip Number 4487, Original Publication Date, 30 March 1985)

Panel 1: As they get ready to leave the Restaurant Of Chauvinism, Elly reminds Claire that the service was terrible and the waitress was rude.

Panel 2: Claire talks about the lukewarm coffee, the absence of cream how they had to ask Man-Stealing Mandy for the check three times.

Panel 3: Claire says that she can't remember when she had such a thoroughly unpleasant meal. Elly agrees.

Panel 4: When she turns around and asks Claire if they should tip the girl anyway, Claire reacts to what Elly said as if she proposed joining the Kiss Army.

Summary: As someone who's got relatives who live on tips, I really don't have much use for a plot arc that takes the side of petty idiots like Lynn who inflate their hardships because they won't admit that the world doesn't rotate around them.
