Fashion, it's a seperate minimum wage school for food service/tip based jobs.

Damn that! Like at Olive Garden, all she literally did was take our orders and write them down, took it to the window where the cook was to make them, bought it out when ready, took my drink order and dropped it off, handed me the receipt. My food and drink came out to like 35 and I'm supposed to give her an extra 5.25 because of that? Damn that, she wasn't even nice or pretty. She got a 1$ and should be happy she got even that much.

And yes they make less than normal minimum wage but whos fault is that?

Poor service is not deserving of a large tip. I always toss in a few extra bucks because it goes to the hostess, bus boy, and sometimes the cooks as well.

They know poor service is equal to a low tip, so it's sort shooting yourself in the foot to do the bare minimum for your guests. The retards on here however don't see the point in tipping unless the waitress is "hot", becasue apparently that takes priority over quality of service.

They make some good money off those tips. I have freinds who pull in a 100 bucks a night. It's crazy.

I used to be a waiter so I kinda know how it felt to get a bad tip.

Look if you don't want to tip, then don't go to restaurants with waiters it's as easy as that. Go to Burger King or Taco Bell where they give you the food and that's it. But if you want the server to take your order, bring you the food and practically "serve" you, then tip.

I remember when these guys brought in my Plasma T.V. and they came like 5 hours early, so we didn't move the old t.v. stand, and the 2 guys offer to bring it outside for us. And these were two grown men carrying something that two teenagers could easily carry and afterwards they ****ing asked for gratuity. Funny part is my dad's English wasn't so good so when he stuck out his hand my dad just gave him a high five. The look on the guy's face was priceless.

Problem with tipping is the fact resturant overcharge for thier food. Not to mention adding tax ontop of the overpriced food. Then you have to accomodate the person who served you. So at the end of the night you're paying a lot of money. If you got the money, you enjoy the food/atmosphere and also how you were served then I guess the total cost isnt of an issue. Only thing that matters is how you felt during your night out. Eh

Tips is an acronym - To insure prompt service.

Watch this movie if you dont believe in tipping, or if you want to see a funny ass movie.

tips are considered part of their income. restaurants pay them less because tips are a given. this way, some of their income depends on job performance, and also it can't be taxed (I think).

basically their salaries pay the bills but they actually live on mostly tips.

Resturants pay them less and hike up food prices. You left that out. While the whole idea of paying tips, how much, poor waiter depends on tip (not saying they dont, they do) often overshadows how resturants get over.

No they don't you idiot. You order, pay 5$ and your empty cup and turd sandwich are given to you two minutes later.

There is a thing called atmosphere at restaurants that does not apply to McDonald's: people usually go out to eat with the intention of sitting down, having a good time, eating good food, and being served. None of which happens at McD's. They throw your 2 month old reheated "meat" patty on a stale bun with un-melted cheese and give it to you. Yum.
