they already get paid, why do they act stank when they don't get extra? you're doing whats in your job description. isn't that what you signed up for? I mean I do it, but I just get irritated by the expectation. you knew how much youd be getting paid when u agreed to the job soooo

I think tipping is a nice gesture that keeps society grounded...once upon a time it was a luxury to afford to be waited on and we shouldn't forget that.  We are all so entitled now.  So I am pro tipping but but but

Stop the fcking complaining when you are in the service industry.  1. You chose it.  2.  With tips you can bring home a very decent hourly wage, more than a lot of jobs.  3.  Stop raising the tip amount because all of a sudden we are supposed to tip 18-20% like what happened to 15% or am I imagining that 15% ever existed as the standard?

If you choose not to tip your at-home beautician, then that's on you

but if you don't tip a waitress although there was no problem with the service, I'm judging hard

I will usually tip, but it just irks me that its expected. if they do a really good job then yeah I have no problem but if u did the bare minimum, uh you got a paycheck right? well consider that ur tip

however I just ordered some Chinese online and I tipped solely because I don't want them with my food before they arrive and im a repeat customer

but don't put a prompt on ur website like "please tip our drivers" like maybe u should pay ur drivers better so they wouldn't expect it sh*t

You pay for food and service is extra .. if you only want to pay for food and don't want to pay for service then just get takeout 

We all can tell the difference when wait staff go above and beyond and we don't like it when they do the bare minimum 

There's a lot of leeway in a personal service like serving food

I like having the leeway in tipping accordingly instead of a mandatory gratuity.

Yeah I think businesses should pay gas for delivery drivers because I don't like paying for delivery charges AND a tip.  That's why I haven't ordered delivery but once in three years.

they're also trying to keep the food cost down. They pay minimum wage or less for bargain food wait staff and drivers 

Do you prefer they add the costs of a living wage for workers into your bill without your knowing it?

What's the hourly wage for service workers? $2.90/hr? something like that.
We are subsidizing low wages for these people. In the end, companies win.

I don't have a problem tipping and I do but this excuse I do not like.
It's just corporate bullsh*t.
Same excuse the corporations trotted out when AHCA was introduced.

So let's not go there

they legally have to get paid min wage anyway, so if they don't get tipped by the customer then the company can bail them out. paying 2-3 dollars extra for the food wouldn't make a bit of difference anyway since they expect u to tip at least 15% anyway

I dont tip if i dont feel like the service was worthy of a tip...

You gotta stank attitude/not doing you're job correctly im not giving you sht

I tip well for those with good customer service....fortunately I rarely get horrible service so this is not a huge issue.

No that's a lie, they make anywhere from $2 to $5 an hour. the company doesn't swoop in and pay you extra if you don't get tipped enough smh

people tip beauticians? never heard of this strange thing.
while I understand (dont agree --i shouldn't feel obligated to tip, even for good service. Youre getting paid)what Ricky is saying about the service being somewhat separate from the food cost....
... at the salon, I pay you for a service...why am i tipping you again on top of that??

It's just a social custom to tip.
I don't look to deep into it.

It's just the corporations fuking us mostly but it's a social custom.

Many countries don't tip or expect tips though

Sometimes I'll give them a dollar.. but I think the expectation in that situation is odd

I tip beauticians if they go above and beyond...

Some beauticians dont listen, wanna tell YOU how they are going do YOUR hair, get really pushy and insist that they know what they are doing only for it to turn out looking like crap, dont let you look at while they are doing it(turns you away from the mirror)...etc

If they are really friendly, listens well, and make sure my hair is exactly how I wanted it yes I definitely leave a good tip.

but I think the diff is that chefs do get paid at least the minimum legally.  

Why is it legal not to pay servers the min wage anyway?  Seems like before there were labor laws it was the norm and it just never changed, are restaurant lobbyists that powerful?

I was somewhere kinda pricey for a work meeting and a waitress spilled just a little water on a man's shoe.
Wasn't fancy shoes just Sperrys or something.

He held his foot out for her to clean it off.

Omgggg it drove me crazy.
He had better paid her whole months salary for that bs.

...i am definitely not one of those "hard to please" customers..so if you dont get a tip its simply because you are a terrible waitress/waiter.

I dont get irate or mad if you forgot my drink or brought me the wrong order, people make honest mistakes.....this will not stop me from tipping.

I dont order my food with a million unrealistic modifications...and expect you to fulfill them all...

And I defintely understand if you have to wait more tables than usual so things might be a little slow...

None of these things stop me from tipping...really you just have to be a btch to not get a tip from me...

I tip 20% Min just to have good manners.
But when I was in training and when I have work meetings and I'm on the company expense I ball out of control lol.

I leave super super tips when that's the case.

But when I come back on my own dime they get the standard. 20%


Waiters be so happy to see but.
But they don't even know lol

He probably didnt tip because of her poor service.  I see this kind of thing too much.

I tip, the amount isn't going to break my pocketbook and I usually get good service

I'm not meant for that job, I respect them for doing it

1. Yes if a server makes 20 dollars after working 8 hours (it happens) the company has to make up the difference in minimum wage. A lot of places tell you if you dont claim more or get better tips they will fire you.


2. Servers get tipped because we deal with the demandds, we are the face, if something happens we get blamed, cursed yelled at and fired first. We have to entertain the kids while apologizing to the next table for the noise. Tipping is a thank you in my eyes.

Minimum wage is not required because of you are walking out with 150 and up we still get taxed o that that comes out of the little 100 dollar pay checks

I think tipping should be reserved for service above and beyond expectations.

People should be paid a living wage and the cost of that should be reflected in the price we pay for the service.

I don't like being expected to tip for basic services, like taking my order and bringing the food or completing my manicure without hurting me, etc.

and they expect too much from you too. If you tip $5 for a meal of $30, it is not good.
If you tip your hairdresser $20, it is not good.
If you tip $5 to your manicure, it is not good.


My sister works in the financial market. She thinks tipping is bs. She likes to say "if those people want to get tipped, they should study and work in a big company so they will get BONUSES".
After she said that, it made sense why rich people never tip.

Thing is, she never really worked a job that tips can help out, and I did, so I think people should be tipped based on performance. You do a sh*tty job, nothing. You do good, $5. You do great, more, depending what was the job, how much I already spent, etc. I am not giving someone $20 when my meal was $50, no sir.

I noticed that in some places though, the waiter/waitress looks at me aphrensive because they think I won't tip or will be a low tipper. I have seen actually some waiters/waitresses rush to my table as soon as I got up to check how much I left, and at those moments I felt like I should have not left anything.

It's not basic to question why we do it.

Not like tipping is some basic human function.
She wants to know why we do it.

That's not basic

I don't like that a friend of mine is a terrible tipper.
I tell her she needs to do better.

She just does it to be super cheap bc she really spends on any and every thing else smh

I wouldn't have a problem sitting next to someone who doesn't tip well. My problem would be dining with someone who complains of everything to the waitress. I am not interested in eating food that the cook and the waitress spit onDead

We all have our thresholds.

I went to chipotle with a dude...it was the first time we'd gone to a fast food place together. We're leaving and this negro took almost all the forks and one of the stacks of napkins. Like, it actually needed to be refilled.

That caused our first argument that afternoon. Just that one act told me everything I needed to know about him.

Not like tipping is some basic human function.
She wants to know why we do it.

That's not basic


I disagree

Most people only do it cuz society says/out of habit
That seems more basic to me

If bad tippers weren't looked down on, I highly doubt most would give the extra cash

That's why I do it.
I tip my 20% out of good manners.

I talk to management but saying a customer who is there for a service should consult management sounds weird.
They shouldn't have to go out of their way bc service was subpar

Most customers don't say anything and leave unsatisfied and don't return
That's with most everything

I will tip $2-5. sorry but all u did was bring out food, refill my drink a couple times and that's in ur job description. if you want any more than that become the manager. im sorry if that sounded rude but damn they really be expecting sh*t

I can see how requesting to speak with management and putting some one on the spot can be uncomfortable for some and it puts the burden of service on the customer who was there just to have a nice time.

I don't mind speaking up where my money is concerned but I can see how some ppl just choose to voice their opinion by nor returning or leaving a poor tips.

Even though that only hurts the server.


This is why surveys and follow ups are nice for some

Bad service: I'm not tipping and everything is going to be comped or I leave.

Regular service: If all you did was fulfill your basic function (take my order, bring the food, not f*ck up, etc) to complete the service then I tip, but only because I have to. This is why I think people should just get a regular wage, no tipping expected.

Exceptional service: Example that has literally happened, I felt faint and had to run to the bathroom to throw up and knocked over drinks and my meal. When I got back from the bathroom it was cleaned up and they brought me a new meal to go, and had already gotten my car from valet. They got a 50% tip. I tipped because I wanted to and would have done it even if they were receiving a regular wage.

didn't see southerns comment.  i tip because i know how the service industry works.  i factor the extra cost into the experience before going out if i am to be "served".

plus i tend to go to the same places over and over and over again.  they know my face.  sometimes have regular servers.

I agree ppl just speak up but in reality they don't so we have this...

I think consumers especially black consumers should speak up be it bad service or a bad product

I think not tipping your waiter/waitress is tacky. But other than that I don't feel like tipping is mandatory for others like the chinese food carryout or chipotles. 

My mil doesn't believe in tipping and she puts servers through the ringer. We have to tell her that she should leave a tip. We went out a few weeks ago and she tipped the waitress $6 and accidentally wrote $6 on the receipt to be taken off her credit card. Once she realized it she told the waitress that she didn't mean to tip her that much($12). I was mortified. That girl looked so embarassed. I just gave my mil $12 and gave the server some extra money. She was a really good server.

i often wonder if people realize how the irs expects  restaurant/bar workers will receive a minimum of a certain % in tips.  and if they don't (and thus don't report it) this causes major problems for the worker because the restaurant/bar will need to add additional tip income to the workers w2 to meet the irs minimum.  in other words, the worker could receive a w2 for more than what they actually received in tips.  so yes, it is expected that service workers in most restaurants/bars will receive tips.
