You understand that by holding a table with out further ordering, in the waitress area, You essentially killed her opportunity to earn that night from it.
Essentially hurting someone that probably gets paid less than minimum an hour (because she gets tips). Hate tipping all you want, but frankly that was just as rude as her constantly coming to your table "bothering" you with her service.
Just because you don't like the system, doesn't mean its going to change.
The server came to our table probably 15-20 times in the first couple hours (seriously ... it was damn annoying).
She seemed to finally catch on that we were basically done with an hour to go and we were simply there to watch the event by that point (the bar charged us cover, so no big deal.
At the end of the night the server went to every table around us, giving bills to customers and taking payment. But she ignored us.

Did you read the OP? She was fishing for tips and more money for the bar (I don't blame her for the latter), and then she completely ignored us while taking payment from everyone around us. She did very little actual work for us. We could have walked out and I'm sure she would not have noticed. Why reward incompetence?
I live in a country where there is a respectable minimum wage therefore we very rarely if ever tip here,to me tipping is a clever con by corporate powers that be in places that virtually allow serfdom,quite frankly in this country you wouldn't get out of bed for whats on offer in the US hospitality industry and guess what our economy hasn't collapsed because people get a fair wage.
