The restaurant I work at has a regular who is probably here 6 days a week, if not 7. The patio allows dogs, so he, along with his dog, come by. He has a couple beers, hangs out, and leaves. Rarely orders food. But he tips nicely, is easy-going and happy to shoot the shit when possible, and his dog is an extra good boy.
Just a fun story from a brand new server that not all camping tables are an annoyance. I've already had several that were frustrating, but I'm always happy to see this man and his dog sit in my section.
