Dear waitress at inner se gastropub, I feel I should explain. I'm the kind of guy who tips a barista 50 cents to a buck for pulling a muffin out of a glass case, so you'll have to understand that me leaving a $0 tip is uncharacteristic. Our food took almost an hour to arrive, people were seated, had eaten, and left before we got our meal. It felt like you forgot to put in the order for our food. You brought me the wrong meal, then you wanted to blame me for ordering the wrong thing. You brought me a take out box when we asked. But you didn't drop the bill til 15 minutes later, and didn't bring us a pen to sign the receipt. So we scratched a 0 into it, and left it for you. Don't worry we won't be back. Next time we'll hit the food carts.
