Just a ridiculous retarded American mentality and culture. People working hard just because they get tips. I am staying in South Korea and it's every bit (if not much more) modern in living conditions etc. However, with these service industries (cabs, restaurants, etc) you don't tip. What's even crazier..is that the service is still 100x better than back at home. They treat you so well, just because it is their job and they know other people can easily do what they do. They appreciate just having a job and making sure they do a good job at it.

I like the In n Out mentality. Pay a reasonable wage ($9 an hour to start if im not mistaken). Get rid of this tipping wildness. Gotta tip everywhere, bartenders (and I was one), etc. It's ridiculous.

Personally, I like a system better where everyone is rewarded if the company/restaurant is successful. Also, rewards people for staying with a company longer. Turnover is a huge cost and waste of scrills in restaurants. Simply, have a year-end bonus (even for part-time workers). If the company does good, everyone gets rewarded.

end rant/

The reason we have tipping is because it works (better service). If you dont like tipping, go eat somewhere where they hand you your food on a tray, and note the difference in service.

In Quebec, the minimun wage is 9,90$ and the minimum wage for workers who make tips is $8.55

Me, I always give 15% if I received a very good service or if the waitress is really hot

I like how this angry narrative about tipping always gets thrown at the small person, like the waiter or bartender, but no one ever complains about how the corporate restaurant itself, is ripping you off left and right with prices and such. You don't want to tip? Then demand that corporations and restaurants pay their employee's a decent wage. Waiting tables and bar tending are not minimum wage jobs. Actually go work 8 hours straight in a busy restaurant or bar, and you'll find out it's just as hard, if not harder then your BS, cubicle, desk, insurance claims, medical debt, collared golf shirt, douche baggery you perpetuate daily.

You realize if they paid their employees more, the price of food would go up too right?

No shit, that's why when these rants come up it's pretty ridiculous. You're gonna pay one way or another. Bottom line.

Tipping is sort of weird. Sometimes when I go to out to eat with my family 5-8, I always tip like $10 because of the amount of times the waiter needs to go back and fourth getting drinks. You also need to keep in mind that my table size is 5-8 at times but that waiter is also servicing 2-4 other tables and could be servicing 20+ on any given hour. If I go out to eat with 1-2 people I only leave a $2-3 tip. There shouldn't be a required tip. That pisses me off. I've had waiters botch orders, take 30 minutes to bring me my drink, and appear as if I was just wasting their time asking them for refills and extra sauce.

I mean these waitress/waiters are making at least minimum wage PLUS tips. This is almost $20-40 per hour. How is that even fair? Thats a very very good wage for someone without a college education and doing some trifling work.

Other jobs like CPAs or attorneys do not get tipped. In fact, with these occupations, people try to take advantage of them and demand free consultations before even signing a retainer with them

No other occupation requires tips, but why restaurants? If those waiters/waitress feel they are underpaid, they can always get another job.

People who work much harder jobs don't even make $20 per hour.
1st question: are you a total idiot?



2nd question: are you a total f--king idiot?



3rd question: have you ever thought about googling this matter if you had your questions?



sorry to be so harsh, but your numbers and your research make you look like a total rich-kid, sheltered buffoon in the OP. maybe you've learned your lesson since then, but i didn't read that far. but good luck with that shit, since you obviously need it......

Or how delusional Americans are about how prosperous their fellow Americans are.

I really can't wait for the time when people stop eating out and get back to home cooking (not anytime soon since this and the last generation of women can't cook for shit) just to shove it in the tip-whores faces. Make a big deal about tipping when they lay you off due to lack of demand. *fades back* "Hostess!"
