Or, get this, pay restaurant employees a fair wage and charge transparent prices for food and drink with a possible table charge or gratuity charge added to the meal to afford the higher wages.

They byzantine tipping system is a giant headache for everyone and old timers will still drop a few bills anyway as people adjust.

I like to put one of those fake christian bills that looks like money but isn't in there but I fold the real money tip under it so they can go through a rollercoaster of emotions and call me a motherfarker until they realize what's up.

Tallying up every charge that isn't a food item on your bill is just passive aggressive bill padding. Just say your burger meal costs $11.45, not $6.45 and $5 I have to pay my employee charge.

It also has the knock-on effect of essentially lieing about the price of the food to your customers. Your regulars wouldn't mind, but the shiat fit you invite to your business isn't gonna be fun.

In the UK, it's pretty common to have pooled in restaurants to share with kitchen staff, and in pubs it's relatively common to split tips between all barstaff (because tips in pubs are relatively rare, and almost always from elderly men to female staff alone).

Management? Fark off.

The argument against this is that particularly skilled or, let's be honest, sexy servers can make real bank in busy establishments or especially high end places.

On the other hand, that just means literally everyone else is making sub minimum wage or subsidizing the corrupt industry by paying wages on top of the food bill so a 20 something bartender with a fit butt can make a shiatload more per hour than a most people would call a fair price point to do the same work.

Same. Having been a delivery driver, I put like $1 in on the online order, so they can cover their ass & say they got tipped, then tip in cash. Bare minimum $4 (for a total of $5) and if they bring the plates/napkins/sauces/pepperoncinis/cheese/red peppers as ordered, that's $20.

Why yes, I only order pizza delivery while farking drunk & generous, why do you ask?

Obviously, staff are actually also paid in the UK...

No. A table charge is just to let you know you pay to sit down here. No water and free breadsticks, although typically you get a little snack to begin with. Most places I've seen it rarely even have employees plural.

The gratuity charge isn't passive aggressive bill padding, it's aggressive bill padding, ie tipping, but you the customer don't have to do the math homework and you can't leave one one of those weird christian fake bills that Jesus would have literally horse whipped someone for leaving in lieu of money, so it's a win for both sides.

Americans would probably freak out at first till they realized it was cheaper and less stressful in the end.

The trick is you can.  you just have to go to special bars with hot staff and inflated prices on drinks and all you can drink plans or, get this, still have fit bartenders  but not have to pay extra.

So all you really lose is memories

This.
Nobody on my groceries list is there an added value item for store employees placing my items in easy to reach places, or a "clean floor gratuity charge".

You have employees, let the price of your product reflect the cost of having employees.

What?  Stop the thread, this is important.


At a regular watering hole slinging favorited! and grog, all you can drink can be as low as $10/h and your wait staff is probably not gonna be different looking than the staff at mcdonald's because the wages aren't much different. Prices there reflect what drinks are endless.

But at places that hire pretty girls (or guys) exclusively, you're getting better beer, but more than $30/h.  You're still basically paying more to see taut flesh, but the guys are making a decent wage back in favorited!-town too, so the homely and the people there for booze not skeeze are also winning.

Everybody wins. Ubuntu!

Downside: the delivery driver saw a $1 tip on the takeout order and tea-bagged your food & spit on it on the way over there because he thought you were planning to stiff him.

There's a banker in my town that I absolutely despise.
He paid for new carpeting in his favorite coffee shop.
He got the money by charging people $35 if they were one cent over.
If he sees you having a bad day, he laughs.
If he's having a bad day, he wants sympathy only from his "equals."
Any sympathy from someone he views as beneath him, he takes as an insult.

MISTER laugh-reactor, you're worse than that banker.

Last time I ordered food online to be delivered it showed the total and asked how much I'd like to add to tip the delivery driver.  The options were an amount or leave it at $0 and then the [Submit Order] button.
I paid with plastic but my intention was to tip cash to the driver so they'd get all of it right then but as far as they knew they were going to come out and I wasn't giving them shiat.

Nope. You've never been a driver. There's a code.

If there's a change-only or $1 tip, that means the customer was a driver/tipped employee themselves & know how to circumvent the delivery driver minimum-wage.

It's when there's a $2 tip that's you start the tea-bagging. $0-1 means there's gonna be cash. The customers that stiff, you already have their names burnt into your soul, Mr. King & Mz. "Godbwye" license plate lady that tried to have your 6 year old hand me a wadded up bundle of cash that was $7 short, 5 years ago.

And God rest you Dr. Nance, that'd tip $5 on a $10 order of Honey Chipotle wings & cheesestix. 11 years ago.

And fark you State of Kansas DOT & your $800, 3 car, down-to-the-penny pre-printed business check delivery in 2006.

We know the tippers & stiffers.

There's a code.
