Applebees set the 18%. Basically Applebees raised their prices and then dictated to the servers what they would be paid.
Here is a better idea. Applebees should increase the price of all items on the menu 18%. Then pay the servers a higher wage. That way everyone will knw what something is going to cost, what they will make in an evening and the Goverment will be assured of getting its full finger into the witholding tax pie.

I really hope you get a great deal of enjoyment looking down your nose with contempt and ignorance at servers you deem to be "uneducated" because in all likelihood most of them have achieved a higher level of education than you have. You seem to have an awful lot of pent-up anger and resentment towards these young, good-looking, hardworking people in the hospitality industry.
Hmmm, I wonder why? Could it be that you are so riddled with your own insecurities that you think that by stiffing servers on an everyday basis somehow gives you a bit of a power-trip over them? It appears that you are overcompensating for something.
Do you have ANY idea what you are eating and drinking, lol?? When you frequent the same establishments repeatedly and gain a reputation as an arrogant, snooty, demeaning pig who refuses to tip, the food and drinks you are served always contains a few extra little treats.
You know that complimentary loaf of bread that comes with your meal or the bun with your sandwich? The server or busboy has wiped their ass with it. Mayonaisse on your sandwich or dressing on your salad? Think of a creamy colored bodily fluid and that's what's in it. Your drink? Yup, a "gray snail" or piss and if you are really an ass to the bartender, you get "bartender's friend". Everything else that you eat or drink you can figure has loogies in it or has been wiped on the floor. Eating mexican food?? God save your soul, LOL!!
So go ahead, get your jollies treating the staff like crap and laughing about it, feeling all superior to them and then coming here and bragging about it. It is US that are laughing at what a dumbass you are and knowing everything that you are ingesting, LMAO! I guess you sure showed THEM, didn't you??? Watching you eat and drink those special concoctions was worth WAAAAY more than ANY tip, Einstein!!
Now you hit the nail on the head! Your attitude is the exact reason I refuse to leave a tip! Thank you for proving my point, obviously educated people don't "wipe their ass" with bread but apparently that is common place in your world as a server? Also honey I don't frequent anywhere I would be hard pressed to eat in the same place twice a year so I am fortunate enough to avoid your uneducated antics! But thank you for showing the true colors of your profession and reinforcing my points!

I am a server and at our establishment there is an 18% gratuity for large partys, ive worked at two other restaurants that do the same. I cant believe this lady, go figure shes black im sure she b****** and complained the whole time anyway! For those of you saying serving isnt a real job I dare you to try to do what we do for one day, better yet 1 hour! I have a degree in business admin and id still rather wait tables anyday besides sitting on my ass behind a computer screen all day and make LESS than i do now. Serving is fun and exciting and seeing new faces everyday never gets old. We bust our asses to take care of you, so what if you have to wait a couple second for a refill we deserve a tip everytime people dont realize how many people we have to tip out too... hosts, bartenders, barbacks... bottom line if you cant afford to tip stay your hoosier a** home and remember KARMA is a b**ch! ;)
applebees you wont be getting my business, i like tgi fridays better anyway lmao
Better yet get a real job and quit griping! I'm sure you have a degree, just like all the strippers in Brooklyn have degrees but would rather strip lol! Also if you are making more serving than you would in business than you don't need tips. If your brain is hurting that's because you just got dealt logic by a real college graduate!:)

This is not the first time a receipt has been left with such a message. It is not the first time a server has been told this. If Christians really want to do "God's work" then perhaps they should not go out to eat on Sundays or learn how to tip! By going out to eat on the Sabbath, they are only insisting on companies to open and have people there to serve them. Stay home, have a group BBQ, I do not care. However, by going out to eat and asking "Why you are not at Church, or Why should I tip you more than I tithe" it should be obvious we have to work, and you keep stuffing your face every SUNDAY! Beside God only ask for 10% you can give more that is pathetic that a pastor quotes the minimum. By the way "Christan Tracts" are not a tip either.

Better yet servers could offer decent service and as a result get a tip. You get a tip for exceptional service nothing more nothing less.

Here's the real problem. He has a college degree and makes less than a server at Applebees so he blames the server for life being unfair when he should be blaming himself for being a barely employable loser due to a horrendous attitude and pathetically annoying personality.

This reminds me of the opening in Reservoir Dogs.

Old School is the slimy, shifty little punk named Mr. Pink.
