I dont think we should be required to or expected to. We do not get tipped to go to the restaurants. That is their job, that they chose to take, And if we dont go there they will not get to work. So why should we be expected to give tips,,, that is their job.

Don't you know they only get 2.15 an hour. If you don't give tips then they don't make anything. Take your cheap ass to Taco Bell!!!

Never in my life have I not left a tip, although I once left a nickel because the service was that bad. I tip based on the service I receive. Good service I tip more and poor service gets less.

My mother worked as a waitress for several years. Her wages were about 75% of what the rent was. She had 2 kids and was on her own. She actually worked one places during the week and a half of a day either Sat or Sun at anaother place. She also took other girls shifts in the evening occasionally. Had she not received tips we would have not made it. If you have a problem maybe you should talk to the owners and find out what they pay these hard working folks. If the waitres is rude maybe you will understand why. You don't have to accept the rudness but you might understand. I can never recall NOT LEAVING a tip. Just try to be fair.

When someone accepts a job that only pays 2:15 an hour, that is their loss. We should not be expected to make up their pay with our tips. Do I get a tip for working 12 hours in a factory or in the mines,,, no I dont. Thats just what a tip has become, mandatory, because they dont get minimun wages from the employer, so the public is expected to make up the difference. If they dont like the 2:15 an hour, they could go to McDonalds OR Taco bell and work for 7:25 (gauranteed) an hour. Its easy to get a waiter/waitress job, because the employer is hoping the public will make up for the wages he does not pay them.

What a cheapskate you are. If you dont want to tip dont go to a restaurant with waiters or waitresses.

Actually just go to the same place twice. People tend to remember the tightwad who didnt tip considering that is food off their own table. Just dont ask what is in the special sauce. I wonder how many boogers and such you have eaten over the years. LOL

That is another issue, why should we fear some immature person messing with our food because they dont get what they want. Bet you have eaten more than I have.

WE dont need to fear, non-tipping tightwads are the ones who get boogers in their food. 20/20 even did an episode in which food servers admitted to spiking rude and/or tightwad customers food. Remember that next time you eat out. Just tell them you refuse to tip out of principle(cheapskate) and then ask for a side order of boogers. Hahahaha

Is that the reason it takes so long to get our food at some restaurants? The server is in the KITCHEN collecting the specimens. This is so disgusting to think an aduld would do something like that. They dont need to be around our food.

I hope they do spit in this persons food for being such a tightwad! I have working as a waitress but it was to people like this person. I busted my ass, made sure they had refills, made sure their food was fresh and hot and made sure their orders where correct and they give me a small ass tip or non at all? We waiters and waitresses remember who tips and who doesn't and its so funny to watch a cheapa$$ eat a nice load of snot in their food lmao!

I know this is an old thread but felt compelled to bring it back to the top because, as time goes by money is getting more scarce and you servers need to remember the customer's are the ones who are keeping you a job. PERIOD...Usually people tip what they can afford unless their service was terrible or they just had money left for a tip! I'm not going to go into a Restaurant and not get what I/we came to order, in order to pay you an extra large tip from what I could afford. I don't know how many times that I/we have went to eat and the prices have gone up, or how many times that I/we changed our minds about what we wanted to eat once we got ready to order. I tip what I can afford, and the place you work does ALWAYS have to PAY YOU the difference to make you earn minimum wage; which I see all of you waiter's/waitress's omitting from your responses. Also, I have known way too many servers that ALWAYS report only half of their tips and pocket the rest free of any taxes.. You people DO NOT PAY MY TAXES in order for me to eat a place you just happen to work at, I pay my food tax when I pay my bill. You do no more than any other person does on any other job and, in fact, quite often the people you are walking around serving works a lot harder than you on any typical day. Also, if you are so damn nasty to do something nasty to my/our food, I hope that you get the same sh*t when you go out and pay what you can afford.. I DECIDE YOUR WORTH, YOU DO NOT DECIDE FOR ME WHAT YOUR WORTH IS. I'm going to pay you what I WANT TO PAY YOU!! Sh*t if you people who are lazy, smart@sses, slow @sses, nasty jack@sses, poor servicemen/women can decide your worth or you'll do something nasty to my food then all the rest of us should be able to demand our worth to our bosses, the public etc too, but we don't now do we. Quite often every where we go someone is waiting on us and you and you leave them no tip for walking around and performing a service for you. You greedy jerks need to stop and think about the big picture not just inside your greedy little box.

I hate to be so negative but honestly.. Have you guys read the law at all concerning wages.
If a waitress does not make enough tips the hour that she works then the owners have to make up the rest. I have worked as a waitress. I have never felt that the customer had to leave me a tip. I have never asked a customer if they wanted to leave a tip on their card. That should be their choice without me asking. I can tell you that in 4 years I had 2 customers that did not leave a tip. 1 was a little ole lady raising her grandchild the other was a young man that brought his girl friend in and she over ate. He barely could pay the bill. I think that waitresses should quit trying to play on the customers sympathy and do their jobs. The tips will come.
