If some one doesn't tip then you really have no right to be mad, you get paid to do your job, some one else shouldn't have to pay you aswell.

I tip only when I get good service.

And now I wait for all the red thumb, from the entitled ***** who think that having to carry food around is such a hard ******* thing. Ive been a bus boy, its easy as **** . Sure you get a little tired and sore, but guess what, its called working, it aint easy, but its better than being homeless.

I definitely understand where you're coming from. I don't tip anyone with ****** service either.

However, I am a very good waitress. I have gotten the restaurant several great reviews and people even ask specifically for me sometimes. Waiting tables isn't just about bringing food out. It's about catering to every little need/desire a customer has. There's customers that I don't have to cater to at all, I take their order, bring them their food/drink, and check them out, never needing to ask them if they need anything; and then there's the customers who get offended if you leave them alone to take care of another customer for five seconds. You want a refill every ten seconds? Can't say no. Don't like your food? I'll take it back and fix it. You want me to smile, kiss your ass, and be nice even though your child just threw a fit and chucked his milk at me, soaking the only clothes I have to wear through the shift? You got it buddy.

There's also the fact that I am not paid the normal minimum wage for Colorado; I am paid 4.63$ an hour, the waiter minimum. If it wasn't considered polite/customary to tip for good service, my wages would not be adjusted to accommodate them.

Are you mentally challenged?
waiters make next to nothing for hourly wages, like a quarter of what minimum wage is, and they rely on tips to be able to pay bills and feed themselves, Should waiters make more money per hour from the restaurant? sure.
But if someone doesn't tip their waiter if the waiter wasn't terrible, then they are just being a complete dickhead.
like 75% of what waiters make, is all tips.

You're supposed to tip because waitresses make on average $2.13 an hour (At least that's the U.S. average). That being said I do feel that you're supposed to earn that tip and that you're not automatically entitled to one. In my eyes good service=good tip, **** service= **** tip.

That's not the point, in some resturaunts, they get paid far below minimum wage, and they get charged close to %15 in taxes based on the fact that they make money in tips. so depending on your state, if you tip low, you're essentially stealing from them, because they have to pay taxes on money they didn't make. In the united states anyhow. If we got rid of tipping, they would just up the price of the food, so they could pay the waiters, and busers more. Then you don't have a monetary say in how your food/service was, and the employees have less of a reason to work hard/fast.

Don't thumb him down you dumb ***** , what he said was 100% correct
User avatar #103 to #72 - RoyalNightmare (11/27/2012) [-]
The only thing is, people who work in jobs where they get tips can be paid less than minimum wage (and they often are). So those little gratuities really mean a lot to the girl making 5-6 dollars an hour.

You're absolutely right dude, nice to know I'm not the only one who won't reward crappy service. Pic somewhat related.
User avatar #97 to #72 - augustusxxiv (11/27/2012) [-]
I agree. In Japan, people don't tip anyone. The logic is, why should you have to pay them extra for doing there job? They SHOULD do it well, that's the expectation.

Then again, societal and behavioral standards are higher in Japan in the US.
User avatar #126 to #97 - capslockrage (11/27/2012) [-]
I don't think you realize how restaurants work, if people didn't get tips, there would be absolutely NO waiters, because almost all the money they make is from tips, you are paying them to do their job, not to do their job better.
User avatar #173 to #126 - augustusxxiv (11/27/2012) [-]
They should do their job better, as should be expected of them. You should try your hardest at what you do, no matter what it is. It's not extra credit, it's part of the assignment. (least in Japan)

As for their wages, that would be for the restaurant owners to sort out by paying them more.
User avatar #584 to #173 - capslockrage (11/27/2012) [-]
Yes, but then they would have to drive up the prices of food.
I'm saying that, with the current restaurant system how it is, if a waiter does their job well, you better tip them good, because they earned it, and if you don't then they are losing out on money that they need. if a waiter is good for me then i tip them $10 even if the bill is small.
(not bragging, i'm actually not well off with money myself.)

I am no longer going to reply to any one commenting on this.
You are all saying the same thing. Ya'll have a nice day now.

I'm a waiter and I get payed minimum wage. Not allowed to get tips because like you said, I get payed to do my job so why should the customers pay me? It doesnt make sence at all.
User avatar #186 to #90 - weinerdick (11/27/2012) [-]
Not very many food places pay their waiters minimum, is the point literally everyone with common sense is trying to make.
User avatar #93 to #90 - lazaman (11/27/2012) [-]
Exactly.
#81 to #72 - recoveryone (11/27/2012) [-]
Idiot, waiters are paid below minimum wage because their paychecks account for tips. Which means, that their tips aren't really tips, just another part of their pay.
#88 to #81 - lazaman (11/27/2012) [-]
THEY. DON'T. HAVE. TO. WORK. THERE.
if they don't like the Pay, they can leave, again, I shouldn't feel obligated to make up for someones ****** salary.
And they definitely have no right to be mad at me for not tipping them. The only reason I tip is because of good food, and good service. If you're gonna do the bare minimum, im gonna pay the bare minimum.
#89 to #88 - recoveryone (11/27/2012) [-]
Never said that you're obligated, because you're not, it's just(what I consider) the morally correct thing to do.
User avatar #95 to #89 - danytheop (11/27/2012) [-]
I was told to leave at least 5.
#92 to #89 - guinessguy (11/27/2012) [-]
why?
#96 to #92 - recoveryone (11/27/2012) [-]
Generally contributing to a person's salary that they suppose to get is seen as good thing, especially if the salary they are officially paid is designed to account for your contribution.
#98 to #96 - guinessguy (11/27/2012) [-]
But that system doesnt make any sence as it would mean that often the person will be payed below minimum wage if either people dont see it as morally wrong to pay what the menu says, or if there arent many customers. t makes the whole minimum wage system redundant.
#119 to #98 - recoveryone (11/27/2012) [-]
It wasn't just like, okay, the average waiter makes X dollars in tips, so we'll pay him Y dollars and the tips will make up for the rest. That will give him minimum wage. It was a hilariously complex equation they used to design this. But it still doesn't always work, because of the human factor. But don't worry, I'm sure that equation accounts for people such as yourself, who only tip in certain in scenarios.

******* Lord of Impractical Justice over here.
#75 to #72 - xheavymetalx (11/27/2012) [-]
You must be retarded.

Most waiters/waitresses make a huge majority, if not ALL of their paycheck FROM TIPS. They only get paid like $2-$3 and hour by the establishment. The rest is from tips.
User avatar #76 to #75 - lazaman (11/27/2012) [-]
I got payed 8 bucks an hour, not counting tips. If you dont like the pay, then dont work there, don't expect me to pay the difference in your ****** salary.

Oh and nice job copy pasting from 4 other comments.
User avatar #84 to #76 - TheFreak (11/27/2012) [-]
Waiting jobs paying 8 bucks an hour are not common and you're an idiot if you think the people working at these **** jobs have the financial security to quit their job and spend months searching for a place like that. Oh, and busing is nothing like waiting. You deal with dishes. They deal with the cheap bastards like you who can't be bothered with a common courtesy.
User avatar #83 to #76 - vortexrain (11/27/2012) [-]
I get paid $7.25 an hour, and get treated like **** . I think that I deserve a tip every now and then.
#82 to #76 - devout feminist (11/27/2012) [-]
******* idiot doesnt know the difference between a busboy and a waiter/waitress . all you do is clean **** up and bring food to a table. they, on the other hand, must handle the customers and have a great knowledge of the food being served. not only do they need serving skills, they must also need the people skills to encourage customers to return. repeat customers are what keep restaurants alive.
#80 to #76 - ryendan (11/27/2012) [-]
Busboys get paid more than waiters/waitresses.
Most places I've seen/looked/had friends work at in my area all say they made between 2 and 4 bucks an hour being a waiter/waitress.
Tips are an expected part of their income and the way society has treated it is that it's almost unacceptable to not tip, despite service qualities.
However, people like yourself still exist that only tip for good service. But people like my grandparents tip no matter what.
