The Muthaship: And the Spotted Whooping Dung Owl.
furterfan: E5bie: furterfan: E5bie: 1. Tip shaming by name is NEVER okay. If you need the reasons why spelled out, you probably shouldn't be in food service.If you need the reasons spelled out to you, you deserve to be in food service, doing a job where you get minimum wage and have to rely on people giving you charity for doing your jobIf you only want inferior persons preparing and serving your food, you deserve what you're unwittingly eating.Personally, I would prefer it if anyone preparing my food had a minimum of a bachelors degree in a biology related subject. but, realistically, food service usually pays peanuts and attracts monkeys
bunner: I once had a server at a restaurant on an island I used to live and work on during the summer who was flawless.F l a w l e s s .Some Ukrainian kid.
steamingpile: it sounds like they had lunch catered and didn't tip shiat.
Spanky McStupid: doonerpjenkins: It's not unusual to tip at least 10% at a food truck...I should tip 10% to someone who hands me a sandwich through a truck opening? Please educate me: how much should I tip a vending machine that does the same thing?
furterfan: and then the thread descended into some sort of sexual confession thing
notto: steamingpile: it sounds like they had lunch catered and didn't tip shiat.They did not have lunch catered.The other rainy Monday morning, business was slow when a group of about a dozen customers sprinted up. This was at our second location, a stall the company opened in South Street Seaport to support the area while Hurricane Sandy repairs were happening. This group placed a huge order: three of this sandwich, four of another, three of the one that takes forever on the grill, two of the one that takes forever to assemble. Five or six milkshakes. The order came to just under $170.This guy tweeted at an entire company over the actions of a few of their employees picking up sandwiches for coworkers. This was not a corporate action by Glass Lewis and there was no catering involved.
skozlaw: Tipping is a stupid thing and I hate it. You're billing me twice for one thing.I hate it even more that every place you go has a tip jar. The Arby's in the food court has a tip jar. It's farking Arby's. And it's a slow Arby's at that. I'm not tipping you. Every time I decide to give you another chance you take 10 minutes to assemble a premade roast beef sandwich. And it tastes like ass. And you mumble the whole time and half the time you try to give it to me on a lunch tray when I asked for take out which is prominently printed on the receipt you just spend three minutes gawking at with your jaw at full slack.Here's a tip, lose the meth habit and go get a real job where your paycheck doesn't suck donkey balls.
bunner: give me doughnuts: They fry up several pounds in the morning, and put it in a warming-pan on the back of the griddle.As a rule, yeah. A lot of restaurants with Alto Shaams or convection ovens buy it on paper slipsheets and you bake it up 60 slices at a go.
RickTheVote: The stupid is strong in this thread.
Freudian_slipknot: E5bie: 1. Tip shaming by name is NEVER okay. If you need the reasons why spelled out, you probably shouldn't be in food service.Definitely disagree.Was working a shiat job at a diner for a while, and after a really hard day had a group of 3 guys come in, somehow order like $100 in food and beer (kinda hard at a place with $6 lunch platters) and they ran my ass off. When I grabbed their payment book off of the table they told me to keep the change.Literally. Change. Like $1.70.Went back, left a stack of coins on the side of the table and told them "you need this more than I do" and walked off. After that day, I didn't much care if I got fired because the job was shiat and it's easy enough to replace a serving job (or was at that time).One of the guys came and found me and explained that his "friend" had taken everyone's cash (with included tip) and told them they were all square - and used the tip money his friends left to cover most of his portion of the bill. The guy apologized profusely for his friend and gave me a $20.And now those guys know that their friend is a thieving, untrustable dickbag. I think I did them a favor./csb

A lot of restaurants with Alto Shaams or convection ovens buy it on paper slipsheets and you bake it up 60 slices at a go.Great. Now I can't think of anything but chewing my way through a half-dozen strips of thick-cut maple-cured bacon hot out of the oven.It's gonna be a long time till lunch.And then there is this stuff:[media.tumblr.com image 500x281]Thick-cut, oven baked, then you add the brown sugar slaze with the chopped pecans (or almonds), and bake it a little more.My family refers to it as "Bacon Crack."
rkane1: I tip for 'bring'If you bring food to my table, and come back and check up on me you get a tip.If you bring food to my house quickly, while it's still hot, you get a tip.If you bring my bags upstairs to my room, you get a tip.If you bring me home in your taxi, you get a tip.If you bring my car around to the front, you get a tip.If I walk up to your counter and exchange money for goods and I then walk away with the goods, you get the amount of money your menu states I owe you.
CheatCommando: Publicly, with a public apology to the client, so that other customers can rake your business over the coals and perhaps go elsewhere?
Skarekrough: meanmutton: I had no idea that the guy working a food truck was a customarily tipped employee.I think it had less to do with tipping for a typical persons order and more to do with a high-end financial company putting in a large order for alot of food which creates a higher level of expectation for the food truck.When you look at the business model of any place that serves food the workflow, staffing and even physics are geared towards "one person - one order." It's easy to think that accommodating a large influx of orders at one time just means more money, but for the food truck worker it just means that they need to bust their tails to get it done, and at a pace and rate exponentially larger than a regular order for one person.This is the same reason why when you go to some restaurants and your group is larger than a certain number of people the tip is calculated into the bill. A large group and their order is more work than what is typically asked for by the employee and as a result they should receive a higher level of compensation for it.
meanmutton: The reason they add in the tip for large groups is because large groups frequently skimp on the tip (it's amazing how people can't do basic math and split up a bill when they eat in a group) for individuals who are customarily tipped employees.
Deadite: I'll tip food trucks, though around here that usually means they're selling frybread.Which if you've never seen it or eaten it looks like this if you order whats known as a Navajo Taco around here.[25.media.tumblr.com image 500x375]They're also farking delicious with either powder sugar or honey or hell both. The people selling these by the roadside usually need the extra money and for these wonderful bastards I'll gladly tip if it means they can still operate and sell me more. I'll tip even more if they got homemade hotsauce that burns my nostrils walking up to the truck.With that said hipster/artisan food trucks that sell grilled cheese sandwiches for $7 will be lucky if I buy something from them. Which is weird since I'll go to cleaner looking restaurants over skeezy ones any day, but with food trucks I'll buy something from the ones that look like they're still running from the Zeta's over ones that aim for these guys.[stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com image 570x378]
poot_rootbeer: CheatCommando: Publicly, with a public apology to the client, so that other customers can rake your business over the coals and perhaps go elsewhere?How does part B follow from part A?
Eps05: HotWingAgenda: I can't imagine spending $170 on food from a truck. Then again, I've never heard of a food truck with a delivery boy. The entire restaurant has f*cking wheels, right?It's probably their fancy term for "minimum wage food industry worker". Once they start cleaning their truck at the end of the day they become "Sanitation technicians".I hope this story goes viral and shame both GL&co and Milk Truck both get humuiliated publicly. Then again, since GL&co are in the business of screwing people's money over, they probably don't give a crap about it.

E5bie: Glass-Lewis Co. didn't "get" the guy fired. His boss fired him. Period.
Musikslayer: For those who didn't read the article or the additional linked article:1. The guy who got fired wrote the linked article. He's a douche, and basically admits that.2. It wasn't 20 sammiches, it was 12 and 5-6 shakes.3. 12 people were actually there. This was not a phone order, 12 employees of Glass Lewis were ordering, separately. The fact that they paid with one credit card is irrevelant, in fact it was helpful to the truck as it saved credit card charges and was far quicker.4. They picked up their orders individually. When they did, the fired guy harrased them and asked if they had planned not to tip.So, to recap: the fired guy is an idiot and a douche. The 12 people were just 12 people standing at a food truck. Douche is shaming ordinary people, not some mega-corporation (BTW, they do financial research). The owner was correct in firing him.
NickelP: Sigh...: Glass, Lewis and Co. ....You have lost my business, and any referrals I might ever give because of your actions. First) Cheap bastards, nickle and diming the little guy? Second) Crushing some poor dude who works on a food truck.Food Truck worker dude... Tips are always voluntary. You were wrong to shame them. People are schmucks, get used to it. If you don't want bad tips, get out of the business entirely.Food Truck Owner dude... You need clear policies and expectations.Sounds like he has one. Food truck cooks are not permitted to badmouth customers on twitter or they will be fired. Pretty reasonable too
Southern100: Why? A food truck is just a mobile fast food restaurant. Do you tip at McDonalds? Wendy's? Jack-in-the-Box? Subway? Shipley's Donuts?How about if you order 20 pizzas from Pizza Hut and pick up the order instead of having it delivered? Do you tip then?What's next, tipping the people behind the deli counter at your local WalMart because they sliced you a couple pounds of ham? After all, we know they make shiat wages.

I had embarrassed him and the company and that was that."The "he thought I'd understood that" implies that he DIDN'T have clear policies and expectations.Is everyone in this thread just taking the day off from actually READING the articles?
puffy999: I really, really don't like waiters/waitresses who expect large tips in this country... I go to a restaurant for f*cking food, not to talk to you, so I've always wondered why the cooks aren't getting the tips.Anyway, a food truck, for a large order, should definitely receive some sort of tip. Those guys are doing EVERYTHING.
