ya nice job ******* over the bus boy who did nothing
User avatar #4 to #2 - createdjustnow (07/05/2013) [-]
think about it. If the waiter/tress get's the tip, then they made the mess and busboy gets mad. if busboy gets the tip, he gets paid a little extra to clean up some water
User avatar #24 to #4 - killmani (07/05/2013) [-]
i am a bus boy you dont get the tip and the bus boy will just be pissed at the customer because he as a twat for turning a full cup upside down the waiter ill just tell you some asshole spilled a full rink on the table. and you will just realize that you made a guy who barely gets minimum wage job suck
#130 to #24 - chubbies (07/05/2013) [-]
I thought waiters split tips with busboys? Otherwise the busboys could do their job slowly and the waiters wouldn't get as many customers in. That's what my brother told me, who was a bus boy himself.

Don't not leave a tip. If you don't leave a tip, they'll think you're just an asshole who doesn't tip. If you leave a small tip, they're much more likely to recognize that you weren't satisfied with their tip.

If you got **** service, you should have all right not to tip. Thats how it SHOULD work. In reality, unfortunately, restaurants pay their workers **** and they have to basically live off of tips.
User avatar #122 to #3 - rangerofthesea ONLINE (07/05/2013) [-]
leaving no tip just makes you look like an ass...but leaving an insultingly small tip is the best way to go...lets em know you were willing to tip but because of their service you didnt think they deserved much
User avatar #125 to #122 - ILIEKPEPSEE ONLINE (07/05/2013) [-]
I'd say leaving no tip should honestly say "you dont deserve one", not " i'm a cheap, thankless cunt"

Some stupid ass places REQUIRE you to pay like 15% tip, so you know, this is a fun alternative...

That's only if you have a large party, and then it's automatically added to your bill.

It's because here in the states restaurants are the only places that are allowed to not pay minimum wage, so tips are usually the only way employees can earn money.

hate to burst your bubble, but restaurants still follow federal wage laws. Still isn't a **** load of money, but they aren't making any less than your local grocery store stock boy
#128 to #44 - chubbies (07/05/2013) [-]
Yes they are. Federal minimum wage is $7.25. The Federal minimum wage of a tipped employee is $2.13.

Some places unfortunately force tips. The system is broken as **** , they pay their workers dust from their pockets, make their customers pay the rest. It's called a GRATUITY for a reason.
#51 to #45 - jackassalope (07/05/2013) [-]
How is an automatic 15% tip on the bill any worse than them raising the price of everything on the menu and paying their employees more? It's just a part of the cost of going there. At least with the 15% gratuity, you know that the employees are getting the money.
User avatar #55 to #51 - ILIEKPEPSEE ONLINE (07/05/2013) [-]
i'd much rather see the employees paid better than my tip being their only good source of income.
#57 to #55 - jackassalope (07/05/2013) [-]
Well, that's an issue, forced gratuity or not. Restaurants are allowed to pay under minimum wage as long as tips actually put them over. So if the staff doesn't get enough tips, the restaurant is forced to cover the difference.
User avatar #58 to #57 - ILIEKPEPSEE ONLINE (07/05/2013) [-]
It's a broken system, like i said
#60 to #58 - jackassalope (07/05/2013) [-]
You also said "Some places unfortunately force tips."

I'm saying I don't get how that is "unfortunate".
User avatar #62 to #60 - ILIEKPEPSEE ONLINE (07/05/2013) [-]
Tips are meant to be an extra reward for good service, not compensating for the **** that the restaurant pays its workers.
#223 to #62 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
Because tips are not taxed.
Or rather, there's a minimum amount they can claim, regardless of how much they make.
And in a lot of places, the 15% gratuity is for parties of a certain size. My local Grapeleaf (Mediterranean cuisine) adds it for parties of ≥10
#49 to #45 - bbzz (07/05/2013) [-]
it's still optional

User avatar #194 to #31 - hawaiianhappysauce (07/06/2013) [-]
Some places actually include the automatic 10% tip in the bill, therefore you are required to pay at least 10%
User avatar #131 to #8 - useroftheLOLZ (07/05/2013) [-]
Waiters, and I think bus boys, are not paid minimum wage, as a % of their income is from tips, and such, so if you don't get tipped, you can loose anywhere from 50 to 30 percent of your wages for that day.

wouldn't your restaurant take 18% for having a party over 10 people??
#238 to #72 - fjupload (07/06/2013) [-]
my buffet doesn't take a tip out when they first pay. We have to remind the managers to push the customers to leave a tip if it's a big party.
#178 to #72 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
some places don't force it if they walk in I think
User avatar #193 to #178 - donkysmel (07/06/2013) [-]
no, if they walk in and there are a lot of people like say over ten almost all restaurants... actually I'm sure all restaurants do it it's because what if no tip is left the waiters are ****** out of their money it's auto.
User avatar #197 to #193 - SageGreybeard (07/06/2013) [-]
didn't even realize I didn't log in.

anyway, I work at a restaurant, and I don't believe we do it. then again, I don't actually serve those tables, and they might add 18% on without me noticing. all I know is we make it VERY clear to reserving tables that we do it.

dude, if you don't tip, then you are one massive asshole. It's not that hard to just leave a couple of extra coins on the table, especially when you have a good experience
#156 to #68 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
It's quite simple. In the US, waiters are paid **** all, so it's kind of expected to tip. In the UK, wages are significantly higher, so it's not as necessary.
User avatar #84 to #68 - kyoutu (07/05/2013) [-]
Not really, nobody tips in the UK.... It's just not expected.
They're paid to do a job by their boss, who pays them with the money I pay for the food.
I'm already paying their wages for eating at their place of work, don't know why I'm expected to just give them money....

User avatar #169 to #84 - srapture (07/06/2013) [-]
I'm 18 and I don't have much money, but all my friends and I always tip when we go out to a restaurant together. It's not mandatory, but it's just something we do because it's the right thing to do really. Don't make all Englishmen sound like pricks just because you're an asshole who doesn't tip anyone.
User avatar #240 to #169 - kyoutu (07/06/2013) [-]
Hmm, I'm from Northern England, I'm just saying I've never seen anybody tip.
I don't think it makes you a "prick", you're still paying their wages for eating there, they should be happy with that.
#74 to #19 - anon (07/05/2013) [-]
I absolutely dispise that, even for a terrible server, you are expected to pay at least 15% in the US, and your tip, not the money you spent on your food, pays their salary.

Pay your waiters a goddamn reasonable amount, and I'll tip them if they did a good job, a tip should be a reward, not an expectation.
User avatar #107 to #19 - milkandmore (07/05/2013) [-]
Everyone I know leaves a tip. We don't have to but we do because it's nice. Please don't generalise by saying 'no tipping in the UK'. I enjoy tipping, if the waiter or waitress has done a good job they deserve a tip and I feel happy that I've left one.

It's fine that you don't tip, in my opinion you should but I don't care either way. Again though, don't say 'no tipping in the UK'.
User avatar #164 to #107 - kyoutu (07/06/2013) [-]
Well I've never seen someone tip in the uk.
Why should I tip someone who's already getting paid with the money I spent at their restaurant? I'm already paying their wage, why give them more for nothing?
User avatar #246 to #164 - milkandmore (07/07/2013) [-]
It's the social convention. Luckily in the UK service staff are paid relatively okay compared to those in USA who get like **** all and rely on tips to get a decent days pay.

I don't care that you don't tip, but the way you're telling me you don't just makes you seem pretty snobbish. If they've done a good job (and it's the social convention to tip) then why not tip! I added that social convention bit in because I know you'd probably respond with some similar to 'well I don't get tipped for doing a good job where I work, why should they?'.
User avatar #247 to #246 - kyoutu (07/07/2013) [-]
Just because everybody else is doing something doesn't mean I should...
Either way, I would not say that tipping was a social convention in the UK.

User avatar #170 to #162 - pottie (07/06/2013) [-]
Not at all, in Britain, you don't need to leave a tip because waiters in the uk make a larger amount of money than other countries. I used to be a waiter for a very nice restaurant and you would only get tips if your service was outstanding. The UK gov said that a waiter must be above the minimum wage without the addition of tips, where as other countries can use the tips you collect on your shift to add towards your wage (making them pay under the minimum wage) A bit confusing to say, ha
User avatar #20 to #19 - Zeigh (07/05/2013) [-]
People always seem to forget that tipping is completely optional, it's a gratuity.
#75 to #20 - anon (07/05/2013) [-]
No, many restaurants (in the US) force an 18% tip on you (almost all force it on you if you have six or more people).
User avatar #80 to #75 - Zeigh (07/05/2013) [-]
That's illegal.
User avatar #104 to #80 - rplix (07/05/2013) [-]
It is a gratuity tax.

Think about it. A 6 person dinner could take two or more hours. In that time, the waiters/bus boys could do 2 or 3 other tables in that time. If tax was optional for that party, that would be a waste of time since they could do those other smaller tables and make more money.

I left a waitress a 10 cent tip because of how ****** she was at her job.I was at a buffet mind you, she Didn't greet me, come back to ask how i was doing, pick up my dishes, offer to give me a refill, and ignored me when i tried waving her down. I even caught her just standing around when she was supposed to be helping me and other tables

It really isn't that much of a problem, we get the tip and the person gets to leave feeling like they accomplished something.

Not leaving a tip is okay, the waiter'll look and go "Whatever".
Leaving money in an upside down glass, makes them want that money, but the only way to get the money, is to spill stuff everywhere. So then they have to do more work.
Essentially, you're tipping them for cleaning up your drink.

Even better, just flip all your drinks over, and don't leave money.
He'll have to take them off the table at some point.

If my waiter is rude, forgets to get me a fork when I ask for one, checks on my table twice within a 2 hour period, they aren't getting a tip.

If the food comes late or something, its not their fault so i won't let that affect their tip.

The whole point of a tip in canada is that its optional, and they have to earn it. If you do a ****** , job, you can stick with your minimum wage. If you want an extra 10-20$ you need to work for it
