Free Denny's breakfast?

During the Super Bowl, there was an ad for a Free Grand Slam breakfast at Denny's on the Tuesday following the Super Bowl.

I read about it and it turns out people were waiting up to 2 hours to eat for free at Denny's. Besides the fact that they could have worked those two hours and afforded a decent breakfast, what really made me sad was thinking of the servers.

First of all, you're a server at Denny's, so you know your life didn't quite take the positive turns you were hoping. Then, you have to wait on the people that would frequent Denny's. Now, they're giving away the meal, so everyone is going to have a bill that's $0.00. Which, 7% of that (which is what I assume the normal Denny's tip is) is$0.00.

And, you have to assume that it's going to be crowded and the kitchen will be backed up so people will be cranky waiting for their free meal, and probably take it out on you.

Of all the days and places to wait tables, that is the worst I could think of, followed closely by waiting on Al Roker at Red Lobster during "All You Can Eat Shrimp" (MORE SHRIMP!!!)
