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?


You should just stick to the vending machine.

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.


Stop going to the places that you know will expect a tip. And stop going to places that you know are consistently bad.

When I go into Subway I give the person behind the counter making my sandwich penny stock tips. Then in exchange I take a couple bucks out the jar labelled "Tips" when they're busy ringing up my order. If they don't like it they're free to take away the jar.

FMR1969: There are so many ways the "Leadership Team" could have handled this well and only one way they could have mishandled it.

And yes I am saying they mishandled it.

East coast mgmt. should have walked back to the truck , ordered another round for more employees, tipped and of coarse asked who got the tip last time so they can be reimbursed. Finding out that no tip was left, they could have fixed that oversite, apologized and then watch twitter miracles happen.

Head Office should have explained how to do the above or something similar where everyone wins.

Neither mgmt. teams have the savvy to be called "Leaders" and neither deserve a Bonus (aka TIP) this year as they exposed  their entire organization to further ridicule with their response.

It may not have been the smartest move by the guy at the food truck to complain on Twitter, but  I can sympathize for his need for more money. The Occupy protests and events around the 2007 financial collapse showed how me  the people at the top (and the decision to complain to the food truck owner came from the top) can't lose while those at the bottom have to beg for every win.

I will also add that the decision to get the Twiiter poster seems like an opportunistic abuse of someone who has relatively little power.  Again I would conclude that the need to squash someone who is powerless to fight back is an indication of that managers abilities.


Try again when you gain some literacy.  Your post is nonsense.

To soothe their butthurt, I tweeted to  Glass, Lewis and Co. i would provide them 35 free lunches from my food truck!

I make a real heady cream of mushroom.

Good lord, do people really not understand preparing an order for carry-out is harder and more disruptive than serving a table, for a good server?

Tip for carryout, if only because EVERY time the person will do a spit-take and look at you like you made their day/week/month/life.

This thread is lousy with cheap bastards.

These lowly minimum-wage food truck employees need to be put in their place. It is unacceptable to insult a SHAREHOLDER ADVISOR. Why, these folks are better than you, and deserve respect. Minimum-wage food truck employees should be thankful for the chance to merely be in contact with SHAREHOLDER ADVISOR'S feces.

pute kisses like a man: tripleseven: DarkSoulNoHope: lewismarktwo:

$7 for a sandwich in a business area is pretty reasonable.  if it's on fresh bread with decent ingredients, that's not bad at all.  however, if i was in some gas station in the middle of no-where.... i would not pay $7 for a sandwich.  lunch prices include a convenience price, by which i mean, the mark up a restaurant can charge for that location. it is a business afterall, not some humanitarian service to make sure we're happy and fat.

/ air at sea level is a lot cheaper than air on mt Everest


Wait.. isn't that the exact opposite of what you meant to metaphorize?

The My Little Pony Killer: thamike: WE SHOULD START A FOOD TRUCK, LIKE THE COLOREDS!

Plonk and good farking riddance.


Haha, you dumbass.

About 90 degrees.

thamike: Have you ever tipped a drug dealer?


Yes. Quality product and to-your-door service are worth a little something extra.

i didn't put much thought into it... but, it's not the opposite.  if i'm selling air tanks on mt everestt, i'm going to charge a lot more than if i'm selling air tanks at 0 elevation.  for one, it cost more to get the air up there.  for another, you can't really go any where else to get that air.

so, like the business lunch, if you want to walk some place close, you're going to pay more, among other reasons, because you have less options and the food maker knows it.

This article from Yahoo says the lunch truck worker moonlights as a reporter.  I think the guy was waiting for a story to AW.  If it was not this tip shamming, it probably would have been an expose on the lunch truck or the industry.

Again, I said drug dealer, not pot dealer.  It's an entirely different set of customs.

But then again, it was obviously a facetious rhetorical question.
