fireclown: Before this goes all crazy, has anyone experimented with a restaurant where servers are just paid a decent wage to start with so that tipping wasn't necessary?
feickus: Ok guys got a quetion about tipping. At Chinese buffets do you leave a tip? I tend to leave one but not as much as I would if I was going to TGIFridays or some place like that.
kidgenius: MmmCrime: Look at the hourly pay rate on a pay stub for most servers. You'll then understand why you're wrong.Their rate, including tips, must be >=$7.25 an hour. This is federal law. Some states are higher.
ModernLuddite: Sweetheart, I'm sorry that all those tips from lonely old men you made when you were 18 dried up now that you're 24 and the other waitress is 18, and you thought you could wear a tight shirt and make rent by the first Saturday of the month. I really am. But have you thought about GETTING A JOB DOING LITERALLY ANYTHING ELSE?
Ecobuckeye: This story is an obvious fake.A boozehound orders no olives. Those things take up space.
davynelson: i don't bother going to restaurantsmostly so i don't have to tip some dumbass to bring me the food.i'd rather go to a place where i line up and take it away than wait on some idiot to bring me everything.
LadySusan: Here's my CSB:I'm a starving college student and it's my first wait job. A family with small kids comes in. They order big pizzas and drinks so it's a big order. I'm in the middle of BFE so large orders are not the norm. True, the kids spill their drinks so I have to cheerfully bus and reset the table and they leave a ring of trash around the trash covered table but when they leave I am so excited to finally be getting a nice, big, juicy tip. The restaurant is empty so I rip through the crumpled napkins and there is NO TIP!!! Those bastards.Soon thereafter I start studying who tips and who doesn't. Families and church people...you go over into that other section where the new server is. Rich ladies at lunch who don't seem to have ever worked...oh hell no. I'm not even going to bother. It's my job. If necessary I'll give you some service with a very, very small s. It's a job and I'm a pro. Regulars who always tip? Anyone who looks blue collar or like an ex-server? Bikers? Hell yes, you sit right down and get some great service. Your order goes in first. Your drinks come out first. I'm waiting for your food and delivering it first.Well, unless you're a dick. Giving a tip doesn't let you be a dick.End CSB.
Smeggy Smurf: fireclown: Before this goes all crazy, has anyone experimented with a restaurant where servers are just paid a decent wage to start with so that tipping wasn't necessary?It's called McDonalds
D_Evans45: DeadBaby: From what I've read on Reddit and other web sites is that older people and African American women are the worst tippers in existence.Most black women work plenty hard for out money, we dont expect to pay peons twice to do their damn job right the first time.
WhyKnot: it would suck to be a port-o-potty cleaner as well...jeez.Servers, get over yourself all ready; if you don't like your job, get a different one.
MagSeven: WhippingBoy: A always tip my server well for the food she gives me.And by "server", I mean prostitue.And by "food", I mean sex.What do you mean by "tip"?
gingerjet: Or guard patrol in Iraq. At least you are in doors most of the time. Or 75 hours a week months straight to make a development deadline. I've never worked a service job in my life but I've fark'd enough waiters in my lifetime to know that waiting tables isn't the hardest job in the world.
Taima: Wow, what a bunch of cheap bastards in this thread. Is giving a few extra bucks to your server (or person from another service profession) really going to hurt you? If so, then who really needs to get another job?
thismomentinblackhistory: Ladeeda: Get a job that pays at least minimum wage? I would not work any job that paid $2.65 an hour.You can make $750-$1200 in cash (tax free if you want) working 5 days a week where I work. It's legalized drug dealing. Paychecks? Those are those pieces of paper I forget to take to the bank.
PJ-: At the same fact, I show up with a date and have a meal that last 30 minutes, but the bill comes to me saying $100. Why the hell would anybody deserve making $30 an hour off me alone.
thismomentinblackhistory: If you don't tip, we usually start slow -- we'll make a comment or stop opening your beer.
JesusJuice: I never tip and neither should you. It just perpetuates a broken system.
tricycleracer: ChipNASA: [4.bp.blogspot.com image 640x960]/flame onA black customer didn't tip??? Whaaa?

John Napkintosh: holy shiat no. tipping exists to give those who actually deserve it recognition for being decent at their job.
lennavan: It's your first time to this particular restaurant. You look around, the place is packed. Heck, it seems as if it has been packed all day. But you're hungry, your wife doesn't want to drive around and you heard this place has good food so you walk up to where the hostess is supposed to be to put your name in. But she's not there. So you stand around and wait until she finally comes back. After glancing at her list of names, she tells you 15-20 minutes. Really she knows it will be more like 45 minutes but she doesn't want customers to leave so she fudges the numbers.You look around, there's just a single bench for seating in the waiting area and it's occupied. Some people are packed in like sardines in the inside waiting area but most people are waiting outside in the cold, so you follow suit. After 30 minutes you ask the hostess how much longer. She says any minute now. Another 15 minutes go by waiting, standing outside in the cold. Your feet hurt and you're cold but your name gets called so you go get seated.You sit at your table with your wife and wait. It takes your waitress 15 minutes before she bothers to come by and introduce herself. Your waitress has 42 other people to take care of, a full load. You're just 5% of her work load and boy does she ever treat you like it. She says "Hi, my name is, and I'll be your server, can I get you some drinks?" Well you order your drinks but it's another 10 minutes before she bothers to bring them out. When you do get your drinks, they should have come with a warning - drink slowly. There's no chance she'll notice your drink is empty and when you ask for a refill, that's another 10 minute wait. Somewhere around 20 minutes after you sat down the waitress asks if you're ready to order. Yeah, we were ready 15 minutes ago, where were you? When the food comes, it's terrible. Turns out the cook is new and keeps screwing up orders. The waitress knows it. You asked specifically for no nuts because you'r ...
fastfxr: GET A DIFFERENT JOB, YOU WHINY WANKER.No one is forcing you to do this.Go work on a farm or ranch....then come back and whine./Sorry...can't stand people whining about something they have 100% power to change.
yelmrog: Tipping is the price you pay to eat like the nobility used to, to have people wait on you like servants. Don't like it, don't eat at restaurants.
kidgenius: dv-ous: stonicus: FTFA: It's your fourth shift in a row at the restaurant, all doubles because you only make $2.65 an hour...Stopped reading here, because that is just straight up not true.It depends on the state, you nitwit.No it doesn't. It's a matter of federal law. It's not allowed.

Kanemano: No one thinks about the dishwasher, he there before the servers show up and he's there when they leave, he makes no tips, but he still has to pay rent, gets truly minimum wage with nothing extra except a sandwich at the end of the night.where is his essay?
Farce-Side: Wasn't this the plot to that movie "Waiting" with Ryan Reynolds and that other guy? What is that guys name?
