It's true, don't fuck with the people who work in the restaurant.
@Dazed0N0Confused 15 years ago I knew bartenders who averaged around $80k a year. They also had an advantage of being in the grey market with taxes. They obviously didn’t report all that money. You can make money in the service industry if you are a people person. You might not want that to be a lifetime career but just saying.

You got thumbs down by a high school dropout whose grand career achievement is taking a donut out of a case and putting it in a bag HAHA
@RationalMale hahaha.. thumbs down acknowledged.
@RationalMale Probably that blue anon "Mr Moron" guy above, who I'm sure works in a job where he gets tipped.
I treat it like 20% is "meh". They're okay -- or bad. But over means they are excellent.
I've also tipped at times even for bosses. I had this one asshole boss in the US who would complain that his french fries weren't cripsy or some shit like that... and use that as a reason to complain to staff and refuse to tip. Then I'd put the tip in for him -- and that was for an entire group. The tip alone sometimes set me back $300+.
I truly hate this tipping system but I don't see it as a reason to take it out on people just trying to scrape together a living.
But the good or service isn’t just the food it’s being waited on and having someone hand you your meal and if you need anything else so I think it’s cheap
I never said good or services was food. In any business, you pay money for goods or services rendered to you. That's being waited on, attended to, and the food. A tip is not part of that.
@Ripper_E I'll be quite accurate in assuming you don't have a job, right? You are paying the restaurant owner not your waitress for the food you shovel into your gob.
@SomeBlondeChick You'd be incorrect. I haven't been unemployed since I was a teen.
@Ripper_E - Oh? Wouldn't know. You know so little about the real world & how it works for someone who claims to be employed.
@SomeBlondeChick If you say so
They deserve the tip depending on their service
Yes, I agree
Not really. If the staff at a diner is bad, people write bad reviews and everyone stops going there. Pretty simple. What next, do I need to pay retail staff extra if I have a question?
I think the bigger moron is someone who continues to promote a terrible system because "that's just how it is." Also, I think only morons call other people "morons" over an opinion. Ain't that right, Captain Projection?Your post is also inaccurate and wrong. No other culture but the US has peer pressured tipping, and meals aren't $60 over here.
@RationalMale @MCheetahOK, dumbasses... let me try to bring this down to your level. Servers are going to get paid no matter what. You are going to pay $15, or whatever the menu says, regardless of whether you pay it as menu price + tip or just menu price, because if tipping goes away then restaurants will just raise prices to cover the wages of their servers. But thanks to tipping, we have the right to NOT pay some of that $15 if the server fucks up. WE HAVE THAT CONTROL NOW. Take tipping away and we LOSE THAT CONTROL.Guys, this is not rocket science. Pull your fucking heads out.
What a fucking moron. Probably a high school dropout.
@RationalMale I have two college degrees, including a masters, and I earn more now than a fucktard like you ever will, unless you win the lottery. Nice try though, dumbass.Now, instead of just calling me a moron and leaving it at that, how about you show some intelligence and explain why you think I'm wrong? Or are you afraid I will just embarrass you again? That's it's isn't it?
See the solution is to NOT go to those shite places that want a tip for the great effort of taking a donut out of a case, putting it in a bag, and handing it to you. And guess what? We see the empty shells of the buildings up for lease six months later, because everyone else did too. XD have fun being unemployed!
I never understood norms like that.
@Emperorxxxemilio the norms of not having a tip culture? I understood it when it was explained to me as to why tipping is seen as negative.
Well they make most of their money from tips so that’s dumb
@Emperorxxxemilio except in other countries where there is no tipping.
That’s still dumb to me
I had a classmate who was cumming in the special sauce. Thank lord that place got shut down
That’s rude and stuck up in itself. You sound like a hypocrite.
@Emperorxxxemilio if he's hot and rude then he's rude, meaning no tip. If he's hot and sweet then he's hot, meaning tip. Wheres the hypocrite
No agreed the customer is always right, if they’re not attentive they don’t deserve a tip
If the male server is hot you’ll tip more than if he were ugly? That’s pretty rude if you ask me and degrading towards men.
@Emperorxxxemilio well i gave the female the same amount so what you got to say about that? Lmao move along and feel free to tip them whatever i dont 🤷♀️
Reread your own post. It seems you’re having trouble with self-awareness.
@Emperorxxxemilio i did and i meant what they said. If i find them attractive i will tip them higher. Simple as that. Im not into women so they get the same tip as unattractive men 🤷♀️
That’s hypocritical and frankly fucking stupid.
@Emperorxxxemilio are you considering yourself unattractive or something? because you seem really triggered rn. Dude get the fck on and go on about your day so i can go on about mine
You’re such a toxic person. Before you call somebody else rude, look at yourself.
@Emperorxxxemilio and what are you? Get off my post before i finally block that ass. Cause thats clearly what you're starving for
Lol okay. Let’s see how far that attitude gets you in real life. 👌🏿
How would you feel as a server who doesn't get an actual paycheck and the bill is $75 and you get $2 to take home! Maybe you shouldn't be going out if your not going to tip on performance but someone's looks. Most of us take pride in our work. Maybe you shouldn't be going out anywhere except the strip club, where looks matter more.
@Dazed0N0Confused girl get the heck on somewhere. Maybe they shouldn't work as a server or at any job where they dont at least make minimum wage
If they’re not a good server then why would they deserve a good tip? It’s based on service
I mean i can afford to tip but i dont always. Yea that prob makes me a bad customer but i shouldn't have to spend more then im already spending on this highass food. I usually take my food to go instead of sitting there eating. And like i said, if its a hot dude whos sweet, im gonna tip higher than usual just for the good convo. It just is what it is. But People can't handle other ppls opinions
Who tips before they eat?
@Riebeck if you use Uber eats, you can tip beforehand but I always tip after they deliver
I see. That's stupid of uber. They defs gonna steal some toppings if you no tip
Agree. But too many people are sheep and fools who only do things because they're told to. I'm an American, but have lived and currently live overseas. Tipping is not a thing here in South Korea and meals are not more than they cost elsewhere. In fact, they're actually sometimes cheaper. When I lived in the US, I just wouldn't go to restaurants where tipping was expected. Fuck that! I have plenty of other places to eat, including at home, than to be told I have to give someone $20 to do the bare minimum of their job of walking from point A to point B inbetween being on their phones, when I don't even tip my doctor or lawyer for more essential services. As if it's our faults the system is broken. I work hard for my money, and no one tips me for being a teacher. I'm not going to waste my money on bullshit just because "it's what's expected of you."Tipping culture is just a exploit in the US to where those in power don't have to pay fair wages to their workers. And as Mr. Moron and others in this post prove, people are more than willing to screw themselves over at the cost of a better way of doing things. Tipping culture is absurd and idiotic. (Sorry for typing more than I was expecting to.)
No thanks for pointing this out. I agree with you a trillion%. Also how about this one. Just look at Uber eats delivery drivers they hardly ever get tipped. That's how you know its just part of the "culture". People are just brainwashed to do it without even wondering or asking why. I had this argument with one of my brothers the other day. I told him an easy solution to this is just to pay the waiters and waitresses more. I mean there are cashiers who get paid $10 an hour. You can't change that law for them? As far as delivery the same concept can apply. You shouldn't be black listed just cause you don't tip a delivery driver brining your food. I mean if your gonna make rule for the driving aspect you should apply it for all deliveries. I used to just do Uber and Lyft as well and I hardly got tipped for that.
Who you trying to tip in Iceland? Or do you have a really posh one that bags everything up for you?
@jack187625 it was a taxi driver, fare was like 900k, I gave a 1,000k note and said that's fine, service was amazing, we had to go round roadworks, he said at the start of the journey "don't worry, I don't charge you for that", He pressed my change on me, "no tipping in Iceland",
Sorry, was making a bad pun about the supermarket
@jack187625 you fooled me completely! nice one, I'm smiling now, thank God some of us still have a sense of humour!!!
You never know! You could of been real desperate for some chicken strips!
