How about a party of 7 coming in and eating and telling you it was the best service they had, the food was the best they had had, and $99. later you get a dollar...Yeah not...I gave it back to him and told him he evidently needed it more than I did.

If you can't afford to tip your waitress or waiter, don't eat at the restaurant. People don't you have any shame. You will sometimes be hit with a waitress who is not good at their job or new and learning. this is no different than any other service you might pay for. If you agree to pay the boy next door to mow your yard. You pay him! Even if it's not the quality your looking for. You may decide not to hire him again. If you don't pay him your stealing from him. A dead beat! It's the same with the waitress. You know the minute you walk into the restaurant if they have waitress and that it is expected of you to leave a tip. If you don't your considered a dead beat! If you don't like the label, tip your waitress or dine at fast food.

yep! Sounds like a dead beat! They had no intent to tip when they walked in. Shame on them!

Selling to a foreign country requires that you "tip" the officials in charge; is that different?

Just so the dead beats know.... The waitress is a very social person who knows all sorts of people who frequent her/him. you would be surprised and amazed at the business connections. if you don't tip or tip properly it can and will affect your professional business. I would say your business would never be recommended to someone and in some cases you'll never get the best deal due to your social ethic. Just FYI to the dead beats!

Is that some kind of weird threat? Am I supposed to give servers extortion money instead of gratuity now? I generally give 20-25% for good service but the second I see any kind of gratuity added to the check that is all you are getting from me.

If they have to pay taxes on 8% of their total sales then I can see maybe putting a mandatory 8% gratuity on a tab just so they don't lose money. Other than that if I receive s****y service from you I don't feel obligated to pay you for it. The 3$ an hour is for you doing their job my tip is for how well they do it. If you don't like your job/pay go do something else.

Of course I might just have left over spite from being a cook and getting payed 10$/hr nowhere near what most servers made after tips. I hated it so now I do something else.

I don't think it should be mandatory in restaurants that you wait on yourself.

Do they charge that for Buffet places ?

i work in a buffet place and I get your drinks, keep them filled and clean the plates from the table. 10% is what we have found to be ok.
