With a majority of Americans now favoring the legalization of marijuana, some restaurant diners have started to treat drugs a bit too casually in public.

I agree, a story about a couple leaving meth as a tip is a clear indication of a national general trend caused by marijuana.  You're just crazy if you don't see the link.

You're asking a journalist to understand the differences between things? The same people who think that anything that fires bullets is either an AK-47 or a Glock? The ones who can't tell the difference between Brits, Aussies, Scots, and the Irish? These are not the brightest bulbs we're talking about here. I'm surprised they didn't say "meth" is short for "methadone" or something.

Um, if it's anything close to a half-decent restaurant, I'm sure the waiter can find some decent blow on their own time.

A couple of high school kids thought they were being real clever when they left me maybe half a gram of ditchweed as a "tip". I followed them into the parking lot, gave it back, and said "You forgot your trash."

Manager asked me what that was all about, I told him. He said "Disrespectful, not leaving you a tip."

/have done it as well with people who leave a pile of coins as a tip on a $50 check, as "Sorry, you forgot your change."

Have you ever considered the possibility that you're just not a very good server? I'm not accusing you, mind, but when a bunch of different people act in the same manner towards you, you have to at least consider the possibility that it's you, not them. I had to do that when I realized that I wreck every relationship I'm in by only dating crazy evil women.

Good size joint? Ok, fine. I won't smoke it, but maybe I'll sell it for a few bucks. I also won't call the cops.
Meth? fark you. Don't want that shiat, and don't want those assholes thinking they are clever by giving me that shiat. So, again, fark you.

/not you personally.

No, as I waited tables for 7 years through HS and college, and those two incidents (and one other) were the only times it ever happened. Managers were always sad when I moved on to another place, as I'd do wacky crap that kept everyone (staff and customers) entertained.

I will be insisting that my son get a waitstaff job when he's able, as it was the steadiest stream of drugs, alcohol, and high school tail I've ever encountered.

But a nice fatty was always welcome.

Wacky, not obnoxious. Like wrapping my feet with no-stick and pretending the floor was an ice rink. Dunno why, but everyone thought it was hilarious.

Perhaps I should have said "Non-Farva-like shenanigans". "Wacky" conjures to mind an image of Andy Dick on Family Guy spilling luggage out of the overheads saying "WOW! That was wacky!"

For me it conjures up images of neon-colored hells where children scream or laugh but you can't tell which and everything has a kind of shimmering haze like the start of a flashback in the 80s and some old guy with wild hair wearing a colorful suit, leaping or dancing or having a seizure, it's hard to tell. Also there's midgets, or maybe those are just the kids seen through some strange filter.

Pretty sure this describes every single birthday party I went to up until about age 14.

Then you should understand why I have a deeply-seated loathing for wackiness. I am also not a fan of zaniness or kwaziness.

Everybody who's been a server, bartender, or food delivery guy has gotten tipped drugs at some point. I don't know anyone else who's had an experience like mine, though.

CSB:

I was visiting a friend at college, and we ordered pizza. I had long hair and a certain... "look" about me at the time.

The delivery guy showed up, I paid for the pizza, then he pulled out a huge baggie of weed and asked me if I had a bong handy, because it was some really good shiat that he was just dying to try.

I didn't, and apologized.

He said no problem, the dumped half the baggie on the counter because the shiat was so good everyone needed to try some.

He left us a ton of weed, easily worth more than twice what we'd paid for the pizza.

Weirdest drug-related experience of my life.

Knowing the food-service people I've partied with in the past, I had to fix that.

It's the Oregon Coast. It's usually safe to assume that all the locals enjoy meth, but the exception does prove the rule.
