I like going out to eat and I like to tip

I like to tip for any good service....not just going out to eat

so maybe that's why I don't see the issue

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

and that is bad

people should complain

how is it weird to say your service sucked?

are people worried about being mean? your waiter wasn't worried about being an ass but you are worried reporting their poor performance?

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.

I like when people speak up for themselves when they feel they have been wronged

you can be polite and respectful and still get your point across

what happens a lot is this becomes a pattern for people and they are reluctant to ever call someone out when needed

That seems more basic to me

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

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".
