My dear Left Coast friend, you didn't answer the question. Why don't you tip someone working at a gas station or retail outlet? Why do you believe the only folks that have it tough are in food service?
Oh please forgive me! I figured it was common sense! Minimum wage for gas station attendants and retaliers is NOT $2.15 an hour, UNLIKE a waiter or waitress. Need I elaborate on this anymore, my dear friend?

If you`re open one minute or ten hours you`re open. People shouldn`t be allowed in a sec early or a sec late. I think you`re complaining because like you said "people suck". And you`re one of them contributing. You`re literally saying to everyone who reads this that even though the store closes at "Z" you don`t think they should enter after "X".
And by your standard what should the cut off be for your pre closed closing time? If the store changed the operating hours to accomidate your belief would there still be a pre closed closing time or would you be fine if someone showed 5 min till close then too?
People with a modicum of brains and class know that entering a restaurant at closing time is not a cool thing. Worse is insulting the server with a bad tip after inconveniencing all the people involved. The customer was too stupid or to careless with other people's time to behave differently. I support the angst of the poster.

A bad tip is another subject, I agree there.

Entering before closing isn`t "cool"? That`s ashame. Cause waiting is so tits!
I`m sure the managers and store franchises agree that it isn`t "cool", but they`ll tell you to operate within operating hours all the same. And I bet the waiter/waitress may be seething and grinding teeth doing it, but they do it knowing it`s thier job.
Like I said, if the store decided to close operating hours early would the pre closed closing time be in effect? It`s just a never ending sob story. And how is it an inconvienence to closing staff of a resturant? I`m sure the economy has much better positions for them if they want to quit.

What bothers me about every single one of these posts is the fact that anyone who waits tables and claims to make only 2.15 an hour is a flat out liar! Yes you do make 2.15 an hour at most places waitressing HOWEVER if you don't make enough in tips for the day to make your pay with the 2.15 total up to minimum wage then the company DOES reimbirse you the difference on your check. I bet most of you also don't want to get on here and tell the truth about how if you make over that amount most places won't make you claim the extra tips you make so therefore you avoid paying taxes on the money you make unlike the rest of the hardworking people in the food industry or anywhere else for that matter. Or how on some nights you get make more tips than most people make in two days working in a kitchen and you dont claim that for taxes either.. Does waitressing suck? Hell yes. Are people usually assholes? Yes! But the point is don't act like you get paid 2.15 an hour because you fucking don't. PERIOD.

I used to wait tables. It really ground my gears when customers came in right before closing time. But, the bottom line is, unless the establishment sets a last-seating time, then patrons can expect to be seated up to the time the place closes. (As irritating as it may be).

Does posting shit about paying customers count as "inconsiderate"? Lol...if you dont like "to serve" then quit. You need them, not the other way around. Theres a reason youre not a doctor....you couldnt handle it. I couldnt imagine you working in an emergency room...stick to refilling sodas and fetching cheese sticks.
Actually I'm one semester away from my Bachelors and trying to finish school with zero help from anyone, my parents technically made too much money for me to qualify for financial aid, wasn't going to complain though because they've done the best they could. I pay all my own bills bought my own car and other than student loans, which I owe considerably less than most people I know I've done it all on my own.

Never said you did.
That "?" indicates a question.
You said something like "... entering at closing time is not a cool thing". Which I sarcasticly replied "Entering before closing isn`t cool?". Because one, in reality if a resturant is closed the partron would be tresspasing. It`s either open or it`s closed. People don`t come in after closing time. And two, I`m just staying on subject. I do believe the poster said something like 10 mins before closing.
Anyways, what`s your point? That entering at or near closing time isn`t cool? Who cares. That`s a matter of opnion anyways. Ask the manager or store owner if it`s "cool".

I agree. But I also believe if you`re not prepared to tip stay at home or eat out of a bag in the drive thru. Crappy service or crappy attitude equals crappy tips. That includes that attitude like I`m violating sacred ground entering an establishment 15 mins before it closes. In honestly I wouldn`t do that, because waiters and servers all have that selfish entitlment and will most likely spit in the food.
