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're allergic to nuts.  This waitress is a veteran, she has a mind like a sponge, there's no way she forgot.  She looked right at your food when she picked it up, saw the nuts but crossed her fingers and hoped you wouldn't notice or care.  When you point out the nuts to her, she acts astonished and brings it back to have the cook just scrape them off and send it back out.

At the end of your meal the waitress brings your bill.  It's going to be $30 for the pleasure of waiting out in the cold for 45 minutes, sitting down to be neglected by a waitress for an hour and eat terrible food from a cook who has no idea what he's doing.

But you better farking leave a big tip you asshole.

They should start a game show on this. Hidden cameras. If the waiter claims the exact amount they make on tips and report it correctly to the manager, they get a huge bonus/raise/promotion, etc. If they lie, they get arrested for tax fraud.

Only a white person would refer to $9/hour as "slave wages".  Slaves were generally paid a lot less, like, zero.

And it's not so simple that servers t make $2.65 an hour - if their tips don't bring their gross up to minimum wage,they are paid minimum wage. Which isn't much, but when the Democrats had control of Congress with a filibuster-proof Senate, and the Presidency, from July 2010 to January 2012, they didn't bother fixing this. Or anything.

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.


I *think* the standard is that if you are serving yourself at a buffet, but the waiter is refilling your drink/water/cleaning your old plates off, then you leave 10% for good service whereas 20% for good service at a *real* restaurant.

What I find baffling (having worked in the food service industry when I was younger) is that the waiter/waitress gets a tip at all. People will come back to a restaurant if the service is mediocre, but the food is excellent. They will not return if the food sucks... yet the cooks typically get *no* tip out.

It would make more sense to me if the roles were reversed. A set wage for waiters/waitresses and tip wages for cook staff.

But the waiters/waitresses here will get get sand in their vaginas after reading this I'm sure.

Their rate, including tips, must be >=$7.25 an hour.  This is federal law.  Some states are higher.


That is the rate at which they are taxed at if they're assumed to have made more than $30 in a month. Which means you can work the entire month, make $50 on top of the $424 you would bring in in wages, and then you're taxed as if you're making $7.25 an hr, or $1160 a month

kidgenius may be your name, but call someone you know who is a server and have them explain it to you.

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.


I agree on church people- I grew up in a conservative area and Pentecostal groups would go to eat after church, in groups of 10 or more. They really thought that leaving $1 total for all of them was a reasonable tip.

never worked as a waiter, but...

tips are not what they make in addition to their normal wage. tips is what they earn; their paycheck is diminished by the taxes they pay. if you can't afford to leave 20%, you shouldn't be eating out. and you should leave at least 15% unless the service was really catastrophically atrocious, like the kind for which you'd need to talk to the manager about.

as for why do people work in such jobs? not sure why anyone would stay too long in them; the main advantage i see is the mobility--you can easily change jobs if you want to. but that's not really the business of the customer to decide that they're not going to pay someone. i personally find the business of being a funeral director kind of strange. does it mean that i can opt out of paying for my father's funeral (knocks wood) when that day comes? i may not approve of the iraq war, and certainly some soldiers signed up specifically just to fight in it---can i have their pay and benefits withheld because i feel that i'm doing something more noble?

people are a bunch of farksticks, and while i think going away from the tipping model is desirable, if you don't approve of the model, then find restaurants which pay the waiters well enough that they don't have tipping, or cook your own food. refusing to pay the waiters for their work is a pretty bad thing to do, and you should feel bad.

Several years ago, I was traveling on business and had dinner in a small, upper-end family restaurant in the small town I was working in.  I was dining alone.  Service started out pretty good.  Waiter was prompt and efficient.  However, just after my appetizer was served and I had ordered another drink, a table of 4 cute young girls was seated in my waiter's section.  He was all over that table and I was neglected.  I had ordered another drink but that no longer seemed important to him.  While he was at the bar or in the kitchen getting stuff for them, I noticed them going around to other patrons who seemed to be friends and trying to scrape up enough money to pay the bill.  Of course, romeo didn't notice that.

After about 20 minutes of waiting, I got his attention and motioned him over.  He came over and apologized for forgetting my drink.  I asked  him to hold on just a minute - I wanted to talk to him.  I explained to him that I was just as impressed with the young girls' looks as he was but that I was very disappointed in the turn the quality of my service had taken once they walked in the restaurant.  I told him that his other tables appeared to be somewhat annoyed as well.  I then asked him to look at his tables and make a quick analysis.  I was a stranger in town, most likely on business and therefore putting my tab on an expense account.  There was another table with an older couple, obviously well off.  Another table with a family and, from the way they were dressed and behaved, probably above average income.  Then there were the 4 girls.  Obviously co-eds.  I explained that I had observed them hitting up friends and acquaintances in the restaurant hoping to come up with enough money to cover their bill.  And I suggested that, unless he was guaranteed getting laid or at least a great BJ from one of the young girls at the table, his best bet for a tip was going to be to give superior service to the tables where it looked like there might be some money and not be swooning over the one table.  For a moment, he looked at me like he had been pole-axed.  He gathered himself, took off for the bar and brought me 2 drinks, explaining that one was on him for the delay.  For the rest of the evening, my service was impeccable, as was that for his other tables.  He didn't neglect the 4 young women but he didn't spend any more time there than necessary.  I tipped him well.

A couple nights later I was in the same town, went to the same restaurant.  I was seated at a table and shortly after, the hostess came over and asked if I would mind sitting in a different section.  Seems the young man had seen me come in and asked that I be seated in his section - he wanted to make sure I was well taken care of.  And during the course of the evening, he admitted to me that the girls had stiffed him on the tip.  My service, however was impeccable and I tipped him well.

It's a slacker job. There's rush times at conventional mealtimes, and a lot of waiting around otherwise. You don't have to learn much and you can blame your customers for their troubles.


Are people oafs? The majority of them are, both servers and customers.


Why do people keep working server jobs? It's better in their view than the alternative, which would require more commitment.

I uinderstand why people biatch about tipping, especially the automatic gratuity nonsense, but this is the system we live under (where wait-staff is paid $2/hour). Don't like tipping, get them the minimum wage (at least). I also have been known to ask in advance for the auto gratuity to not be included and, if the manager refuses, I get up and walk.  If the manager agrees, I'll tip extra because of the principle, not the money.

Stopped reading here, because that is just straight up not true.

It depends on the state, you nitwit.

They get a base pay of $2.65/hour. They get bumped up to $7.40 as a minimum if tips don't make up the difference.

$2.65/hour + tips.

I tip well. I see it as a karma thing, and even if the waiter/waitress sucks, I tip 15%

That said, I don't think the point is not tipping. The thing is the BS of making a point of not tipping. Don't tip your server? Fine, that is an option. But then don't rub it in or use it as an opportunity to make a point. Like the tract BS. Your not going to convert anyone with your phony tip bs.

If I was a waiter, I would write down info like credit cards #s and whatnot. Give me a religious track, I post your CC info on irc.

It is sort of true.  Sort of.

That's what you make per hour.  Then tips are added on top.  Then your hourly wage is calculated based on your wage + tips and if that is less than the federal minimum of $7.XX/hr, your employer is required to make up the diff.

Take-out. Same great food. Less fake happiness, Squatting-to-be-eye-level-friendly, "Did everything turn out alright?", "how was your meal?"-managing, conversation interrupting, loud plate smashing, line-dancing, & happy birthday singing, plus you don't have to do math at the end of dinner.

As a former food service slave from WAY back, I always make sure I tip well. If the service is great, I tip even better. shiatty waitstaff still get a decent tip from me, just because I know what it's like on that side of the serving tray.

One night, after a particularly bad experience with a trainee waiter, I tipped him roughly 25%. On the way to the car, my girlfriend said, "Why did you tip him that much? He was AWFUL!" I just replied, "Look, I've done his job before. It's miserable when you know what you're doing. It's his FIRST day on the job, so he's going to make mistakes. In the grand scheme of things, what is the right thing to do: give someone a little extra encouragement, or walk out of there with the measly $10-15.00 tip still in your pocket? That money means more to him right now that it did to me."

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.


If you substitute them for dinner it works.

Paying anyone less than minimum wage needs to be outlawed.

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?


Of course not.  The owner would rather have you subsidize his workers than pay them himself.

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.
