I doubt that! From how you have responded to these threads, I'm not surprised he wrote you off because he didn't think you would tip him well! It is you that makes the manager's position so difficult! You're right, they are underpaid and overworked! Only because some people complain and complain to them about every stinking thing!
IF and let me emphasize IF you were ignored for 40 minutes, that does not only say something about that waiter, but the entire restaurant staff...in the restaurant I work in, we team greet tables...every table gets a greet within 60 seconds...if the entire restaurant let you sit there for 40 minutes, there are major problems there!
