I'm a waitress, and I make less than half of minimum wage.
The place I work at isn't fancy, and the people don't tip well.
I don't think I give bad service. I smile, refill drinks, and don't hover over their meal.
So, what makes you tip a waitress?
By the way, the average meals is 9 bucks, but most people come in pairs or groups of 3.
I need this money to pay for school, rent, and food. But, I'm making absolutely nothing. I worked 4 hours one day and was paid 16 dollars.
Where is a Che Pierre when I need it?

Most Helpful Guy
1. I tend to tip based on expected service immaterial of level of joint I'm dining at
2. Level of service includes but not limited to friendliness of the waiter/waitress, cooperation, promptness in service, attentiveness, support etc
3. I generally tip in advance as I go by the full form of TIPS - To Insure Proper Service
4. My tips are generally in advance and amounts to a minimum of 20% (I don't calculate nor go by global standards of calculation) and post the service there are times I have gone beyond 100% if the services have touched me in some way
5. Ofcourse there are times I go back cause the food was good but don't tip at all because the services were bad but these instances are so scarce that I can count on my finger tip
6. Immaterial of point 5, I've never complained in a way as to affect the waiter/waitress' job in any way
7. I always leave tips in cash and not add on to the card payment IF I pay by card :D1
