I posted in the other tip thread about how much do you tip, so you can judge there if I tipped well or not. But, seeing how f'n greedy people are, I'm not gonna tip anyone anymore. How dare anyone roll their eyes because they didn't get some complimentary cash for doing their damn job. I now see why businesses are more inclined to hirer foreigners for less, because even if you give the American what they deserve, they still have their hand out with this sense of entitlement.

If you take a job to work for 8-10 dollars an hour, you shouldn't go on message boards bitching about how the customer didn't pity you enough to throw you some extra change.

Nobody should be tipping someone who makes 8-10 dollars per hour.

But, because they make less, "WE SHOULD" tip them.

So a $2.50/hr job is livable?

Exactly, what's up with that. If anyone should be getting something extra, it should be people the people doing...I don't know, perhaps going the extra mile..ya know, SOMETHING EXTRA. But if you're simply doing what's in your job description, you shouldn't be complaining when you don't get some pity pay, let alone complain they didn't give you a decent amount when they do give extra.

Like I said, I'm not tipping anymore. Stereotype if you want, but knowing how many people have some warped sense of entitlement, they can just shove it.

Or maybe they shouldn't have they're hand out begging. Perhaps get a job where you don't need to depend on a pity pay from the customer.

It's hilarious how many want something for nothing.

LOL @ a thread created to justify cheapness.

You don't want to tip people? Fine. There's no law saying that you have to. You have the right to limit the waitress to the $2.50 (or whatever) per hour that she makes as her base pay while serving you. Happy? Great. Just avoid the higher-level establishments that include gratuity in your bill.

Whoa, now the people that don't tip are the bad guys now? Shouldn't the ones that made this $2.50 pay be the bad people in this.

Has anyone ever tipped the janitor for cleaning a spill that a grown ass man created?
