When you ask for extra lemon, extra sugar, extra bread, and all the ranches and unlimited refills the entire dining process, run your waitress back and forth, say terrible things to or about them, and then complain and try to get everything free, you go directly to the top of their grievances, do not pass go or collect $200. A servers living is based off of tips, so when they do an above average job in SERVING YOU, it's quite the slap in the face to pick up the booklet and there's no tip and five dollars in change.

I tip accordingly to the service I would have received for basic services; that includes checking occasionally to see if I need anything-that includes refilling my drink. If I request extras and they are affored with no rolling of the eyes, etc, then I will leave an extra something for that server.There are rude servers as well as rude customers; agree?
Basics=15%
Bad Service=10% and a note explaining where you might have gone wrong. I will never leave you less than what you deserved.
What say you now, Waitress?

I tip according to service also. My normal tip for good service is 20%, but I have often left 30% or more. I used to be a server and I know what good service is about. The server isn't responsible for my meal preparation, but they are the ones who should make sure it is corrected. I only leave a lower tip for bad service.

While those both admirable, they are not common. As a former server, you were bombarded with compliants. This is just a written response from a person who only receives them. I do not understand what is so difficult about the concept: if you cannot afford to tip the person serving you appropriately, you should not be going out. Those situations call for eating at home, or the drive through window, where someone else's pay is not dependent upon a customer's rudeness.

Maybe you should look at your serving skills. If you're not being tipped properly, then it's quite possible you're not as good of a server as you think!

Same here, I always tip 20% for decent service and more for excellent service. If you dont keep my glass filled or even check on me during my meal then the tip starts going lower. Waitress at Lonhorn lost her whole tip the other night by the time our meal was over. She needs to chagne jobs.

I do tip according to the standards and beyond but I have read not only here and heard other places complaints about tipping. Listen , to all the whiners it's not the patrons fought that the business that employs you is screwing you and the customers as well with the customer paying the ridiculous prices let alone playing such a crucial role in your weekly financial well being. If you want guarantees your in the wrong line of work. Cause frankly its not a job that has a lot of requirements for employment , it's a gamble it always has been and will always will be if your not happy , find something new or make a difference in the world be the one to lead a movement to change the rules as far as compensation is concerned.

I see all these post about servers not getting there tips right? What about your local delivery drivers? They are wasting gas out of their own pocket bringing your food. Yet when they get to your front door you just sign your name and think "Oh the next person has them" or "I just paid a small fee for them to bring it I'm sure that goes to them". Fact of the matter is they get paid less when they are out on the road, get taxed on tips just like servers, but no matter how fast they get your food out to you some people will always give you exact change. If you can't afford a tip why would you not pick it up from the store? If you can't "afford" a tip you probably need to be eating something at your house anyway. Just saying its not just servers out there getting stiffed.

n an instance like that I leave a single $1 bill and write on it why the tip was that small.

MEMPHIS, TN -(WMC-TV)- Two women are facing charges after reportedly attacking a waiter at a restaurant on Winchester Road Tuesday night.

MOREAdditional Links
Police were called to Logan's Steakhouse just after 5:30 p.m.

When they arrived, they found the server, Tarik Louis, had been cut by a knife.

Police say it all started with a table of 25 people.

According to the affidavit of complaint, Shalonda Smith became angry because her food was not coming at the same time as the others.

She allegedly pushed Louis, hit him, and cut his forehead with a knife. Police say her sister, Starika Smith, joined in when Louis started fighting back.

The report says several witnesses reported both women chasing Louis with knives. According to police, the restaurant manager said it took seven employees to stop the attack.

The Smith sisters were arrested and charged with aggravated assault. They remain in jail.

The employees at Logan's Steakhouse could not comment on the incident.
