Sonic Drive In

Not a lot of people know this...but, you are supposed to tip at the Sonic drive through! The girls there onl make 3.65 an hour plus tips and if people do not tip, we do not make money! It is ok that it HASN'T been happening for the simple fact that before I started working there I didn't even know this. But now you do!

It is the employers job to pay your wages, not the customers. If you only work for $3.65 an hour, I might suggest that you quit.
Just saying

Most the girls there are so darn rude they don't deserve a tip

Sonic is considered a waitressing service. So therefore if you are parked in a stall in the poring rain they still bring your food out to you. McDonald's nor any other fast food joint provide this service. There for if you expect them to carry your food to you, you need to tip.
Well

Making 3.65 an hour should mean that jf you dont make up your tips, your employer should pay you what you dont make in tips up to mininum wage..atleast thats how it is everywhere else

Tipping is a courtesy. Not a requirement. It is up to your employer to pay your wages, not the customers. No other line of work does a customer pay the employees wages, why do you feel it's expected here?

They do compensate. Tipping is just being a good person.

:Just saying:, I am truly sorry for the attitude you may get from 'some' of the girls...I for one take pride in my work and always try to do my very best to make customer's time a special one because that is my job! I have never worked fast food before now, and have always waited tables so this is new for me. And yes, they do make up for minimum wage if your tips do not cover it but I feel I work WAY harder than what it is required of minimum wage pay and I see that most if not all the girls/guys who I work with do as well!
My fiance works construction and makes 15 an hour and he says I don't work as hard which is true physically, but when it comes to emotionally...I defiantly feel I should make at least $10-$13 an hour. With the way our economy is today, point blank; don't come out to eat if your not gonna tip. Stay at home and make your own food. Truth, I get paid weither you come out and make me take you food to your car or not for my own health. Common courtesy would be just coming through the drive through if you don't plan on giving a little extra!

Point blank is, it's not my job to tip you. I choose to go to college to get an education. Instead of dropping of of high school, you too should go. No need to sit here an beg for money. It is not our job to pay you. It is not our responsibility to tip you. It we want to we may, but theres no rules to buy this an tip the waitress, bell hop or what ever you wish to call yourself. No other occupation does any one get tipped, why do you expect it here too? Do you tip a school teacher for a good lesson? do you tip the firefighter for rescuing the cat? Why expect to be tipped for bringing us out food, that we pay for. Its called service. Service you are being paid to provide by your employer.

If you want a tip then get another job. Don't set around and wait on someone to tip you when you work at a fast food joint. I never tip there and don't plan on starting. I do tip in a places like Cracker Barrel were a waitress checks on you. But that tip depends on how good they are too.
i hope

I hope they fire the English teacher at whatever college you attend.

You people should be embarassed. Were you raised by wolves? You show an extreme lack of class when you choose to eat out but yet do not tip. If your service is adequate, you should tip no less than 15%. If I receive decent service I tip 20%, great service 25%. I never stiff the waitress for problems in the kitchen. I would speak to a manager if the food is not up to par, that is not the fault of the server. Sonic is delivery only but you should still offer soemthing but not at the dine-in rate @Ask your employer: Of course, servers are not the only people who, dictated by etiquette, should be tipped. You just let all of us know that you have never stayed in a nice hotel, took a carriage ride or used consierge service. The first poster expressed her opinion in a kind way and you guys attacked her. Again, were you raised by wolves?

Where exactly is this stated when you place your order? What law is it? Your correct IT'S NOT, nor it is. Tipping is a courtesy, not a requirement. Why would you tip someone for bringing you your food, that your paying for. Whats next tipping the guy in the drive thrue for putting your order in a bag?

Why would you not tip the person who is waiting on you? If you can't afford a tip, eat at McDonalds. There is no sign saying don't pick your nose but it is expected that you refrain from doing so.
at a fast food place

Never heard of tipping at a fast food place. And tipping is something given for good service typically, but again, at a drive through?
Hmmm

No one is saying to tip at a drive thru. However, if your food is delivered to you (Sonic)then it is not necessary to tip a full 20% but an acknowlegment around 1$ is the polite thing to do. Emily Post is available online. It is suggested reading for most of you. If you go to a resturant where wait staff serves you then you are a classless idiot if you don't tip at least 15%. If you can't or won't tip, go to your Moms house or McDonalds.

Sorry but I'm not giving a tip at a fast food place. I don't tip at McDonald's so I surely ain't going to tip at sonic. If you don't like your pay at sonic then get another job.
