22: bartending. $100.00 tip from 45 year old woman. I’m not going to lie…it turned me on and I fwcked that woman up at 50.00 hour. 500.00 a month was good coming out of undergrad heading toward grad school in couple years. I also let her do things to me she had obviously been dreaming about.-first time with THAT lifestyle…including voyeurs giving instructions etc…
when you are getting paid like a bitch one does what they are told0
Didn't work as a waiter/waitress, I delivered pizzas for a time, though. Best cash tips I got came from two different spots in the delivery area we had, both upper class subdivisions. 1st one was $30.00, and then the other was $60.00 because it was a late night/closing time delivery.10
Tip:Bill ratio? I got a $20 tip on coffee to-go once at a diner by a hunting tour guide who returned later with a brown sack FULL of fresh boar steaks individually wrapped in butcher paper. That sack had to be worth $200? I had a big cook-out with friends.0
What Girls & Guys Said
Not really received tips.
However we have collectively left circa £100 before but was worth it and the cash was going directly to staff.13
I worked part time as a server one Summer, the largest tip I got was $100. The table’s food and drink bill was just over $500, so it was close to 20%15
I've been extremely fortunate in life that I've never had to do any waitressing work.17
I would never do that, I wouldn't be able to stand it, as a worker I would lack patience for people and hospitality0
I once got £50 once (not regulars came in late on a Sunday and made a big complex order but all 3 of us left got one)0
I applaud you for being a waitress but being a waiter is not really my thing0
100% on a $40+ meal0
I was never a waiter0
In my college days I worked at a fancy Mexican restaurant for awhile and quite often got 20 or 30 dollar tips. A few times I got a 100 dollar tip.
I quit when others complained it wasn't fair and wanted to do tip sharing, but reality is (as you may noticed with your co-workers) is some just don't pay attention and work as hard as others but still feel entitled to getting a good tip.
I’ve definitely noticed that a bit too with some of my coworkers. Usually it’s the ones that don’t work as hard or aren’t prepared often that complain about others getting larger tips than them.
I always try to do the best job I can because every customer deserves my best, but I feel like tip sharing would take away from the effort that myself and others put into the job, just so others who don’t nearly work as hard benefit.
Exactly, they switched to tip sharing after I quit, per sections... not everywhere but anyone who worked in a section would share in them for that section. I'm glad I left, others complained they never got tips but I always did.
Some though all they needed to do was take an order, bring food and bring check. They never did refill's or check on them.
Good luck in the new job though.
That definitely does sound like a good time to leave, I don’t know if I could manage to work with that either.
It’s always important to make sure your customers are happy and that you check on them to see if they need anything. A lot of the time there’ll be a refill or something along those lines, and in the end you’ll usually be rewarded for your effort.
Thanks! 😊 It’s been going well so far at least, and I think my boss has taken a liking to me even if he pushes us a bit at times. I’m hoping to save enough to go to college and get a degree in nursing eventually, but we’ll see what happens
