Back in the day, I waited tables, and I have no idea how I would've reacted if some dude, instead of tipping me, decided to give me a horse. This actually happened to this lady, and she seems happy about it! I speak for most waitresses, I think, when I say that cash is better than a poem, compliments on what a great waitress you are (minus the tip), or. . . a barnyard animal. But maybe that's just me.
