Thanks for the replies my mother works in a truckstop in a small town in the state of NY (Dansville) I am sure that most people have not heard of it and thanks to all who do tip !! My mother also chooses to work because she at 73 still feels honored to provide her 4 adult children with Christmas presents even though we have all told her that is not necessary..I have 2 brothers one who is 45, one who is 43, I am 34 and my sister is 30... we are very lucky to have amother who is so thoughtful and sacrifices her health not only to make ends meet but still wants to give her adult children (who for the most part can provide for themselves) a few tokens of her love.!!! Take care everyone and hope to hear from people soon and will post again!!
