Default Tips after getting food ?

Why do we, as a people give tips too people who give us/serve us food. Isn't it their job to bring us a pizza or fix us food at Red Lobster. Why give them an extra $5 for doing their job. Do you give people at WhatABurger extra cash for fixing you a burger


Have you ever given someone $3 for bagging your items at Wal-Mart, hell naw.

Have you ever seen Reservoir Dogs?

Look, they are poor and need money. Waiters dont always get paid that much and rely on tips to get more money. Plus, tips arent taxed.

Actually, only in the US do you not tip for bagging items. Go to the US virgin islands, you tip. And US is known for self-serve at gas stations. In other places, workers do it and you must tip them.

Its a common courtesy.

Yes, its their job to bring you food but it isnt their job to be extra nice to you. They can just bring you the food and thats it.

Having a nice server that is nice and can make jokes makes the meal more enjoyable.

I was always told that most wait staff at regualr restaurants get less than the minimum wage and make their money from tips.

Common courtesy man. Your waiter does pretty much whatever you ask them to do and therefore should be paid a little extra.

That's exactly right, servers/waiters/whateverthehell usually make like $3-4/hr and rely on tips as their primary income. Tips don't just go straight to the waitress either, it is all equally divided amongst all of the employess there. If you don't tip or you b*tch about tipping, you're a selfish as*hole.

It is their job to do that, That is what they get paid for. I have never tipped someone at Best Buy for doing their job.

The man speaks the truth. I almost slapped a guy at Best Buy before. I asked him how much an unlabeled DVD was and he laughed like an idiot and said "a million dollars". I said no for real how much and he said "i told you a million dollars". He did it two more times and i just ended up not buying it...


To answer the original post though, shallow as it is i only leave tips:

1. if the waitress is hot
2. if it's a man/unattractive girl who does a REALLY good job. I remember one guy kinda showed off by memorizing our orders off the top of his head...didn't write a damn thing down (and there were 6 of us) and got it all exactly right. I left him a tip for that alone

I had a waitress memorize our orders for 6 people at IHOP one, I was impressed and gave her a tip. Aren't tips supposed to be a percent of your bill? like 7%?

This thread reeks of ignorance. You all are probably kids though that think it's wrong to tip and just don't understand that if they didn't get tips there would be no waiters because they wouldnt make enough money to live on so no one would take the jobs. But you're just dumb kids so i won't hold it against ya.
