<quoted text>You seem very racist, or maybe you just don't like women.

I tip 7%, that's all I think the job deserves. I'm easy to get along with, just leave me alone and stop asking if I need anything else. That pisses me off and I deduct from the tip.

If you don't like it, get an education and a better job. Sum of those servers r n college dumbass! And if u wanna tip shitty or not at all then screw u! If u hav never worked n the restaurant biz u just don't understand and u never will

If you can't at least tip 15% of your bill then eat at home or get it to go. Do you understand servers make under min wage and you are taking a table they could be turning over while you sit there and talk then leave a lousy $2 for a family of 4. At least tip 15% of the total or eat at home. They remember who tip good and who tip bad just remember they serve your food!! I promise they only take care of the good tippers. I always remember if you gave me a crappy tip last time. If so your getting crappy service this time. Ill spend more time with my other tables.
I agree somewhat but then again if this is your attitude while serving me and my baby than you best not be thinking your getting a big tip. Anyways, I'd probably just asked for a different waitress. I don't play that way.

Oh and I much rather eat at home. I like to know what I'm feeding myself and my kids. ;)

Some of us servers ARE working on an education. A lot of those who are in school and working are single parents and dont enjoy the degrading job we do, but do it to the best of our ability to pay our bills and raise our children whom we get no help with. what a lot of people dont realize, a lot of places make the servers do a 'tip out'.. I have to tip out 3 percent of my food sales to the bartender, hostesses, etc. If my food sales are 600 and i get 7 percent tips i am making 42 dollars. After tip out i make 24. If your check is 20 dollars and you leave 7 percent thats 1.40. After i tip out on the food you ate I am making 80 cents. Not to mention we do more than just take care of our three tables. Go back in a kitchen one day and observe the servers. Its awful. But serving jobs will work with single parents school schedules. If you get good service, tip well.

I would think the tip should be based on the tippers salary. If you don't make good money, then 10 to 15 percent and if you make good money then 15 to 20 percent.

You are preaching to the choir. I have 13 years in the service industry under my belt. I tip between 15-40%...usually closer to 40. I was just making a point about liberals who complain about union workers not making enough and those same liberals not tipping. I'm on your side buddy.

If the tipper doesn't make enough to tip 15%, he shouldn't be eating at the restaurant.

If they want to tip 10 percent so be it-- atleast they are giving a tip. It's what they can afford...
They could be mean and not give a tip at all.

A lot of the waitresses or waitors on here sound ungrateful... If someone is giving you a tip atleast they attempted to. You are nobody's boss to tell people they shouldn't eat out.

It can be your fault if you:

What you are saying is MOST of the time NOT TRUE at all, here's why, ask yourself:

1. WHEN do you put in my order? Do you wait or do you go put it in immediately after taking it? If you are double sat or triple sat, you can still go put in each order into the computer after taking each table’s order. By not doing that can result in a much longer wait and that would be YOUR FAULT.

2. FORGETTING to put in an order. My husband and I have experienced this for REAL that servers ADMITTED to our faces they have FORGOTTEN TO PUT ORDERS IN. All of them were appetizers, bar drinks, and a cup of soup.

3. Did you put in the order CORRECTLY into the computer? Have had many times servers ADMITTED to our faces they did not do that correctly. Have had wrong entrées before due to our server putting in the order wrong. Have had wrong bar drinks too due to the server putting in the order wrong.

4. Did you FORGET ANYTHING I ORDERED such as a SIDE DISH? We have had this happen a number of times as well.

5. Did you DROP anything I ordered? Luckily, we have not had this happen, but I have seen a server once drop some fries from a plate before and I did have a waiter spill some margarita martini when pouring into a martini glass. In other words, it is possible, not likely, but very possible.

6. Did you remember to GET my food? We have had a server do that before. Also, we have had a number of servers forget bar drinks to grab them from the bar quite a number of times during the years.

7. Did you bring out my food obviously correctly if you bring my food out? Do you realize how many times OUR OWN SERVER brings out DUH mistakes like the side dish is wrong, the entrée is wrong, something obvious is not correct bacon that isn’t covered up isn’t extra, extra crispy when you can clearly notice that it isn’t without touching anything, etc.? Every DUH mistake you bring out is YOUR FAULT I am waiting for what I did order by you wasting my time bringing me the wrong item or wrongly prepared item or forgot something. While we all make mistakes, I would have to say a good 90% of the time, servers NEVER COMPARE THE WRITTEN ORDERS TO THE FOOD, because they are TOO LAZY and DON’T CARE!!

If it’s another server, it still doesn’t make it the kitchen staff’s fault I have the wrong side dish for example since that is something that’s obvious. It’s either my server that didn’t put in my order correctly or this other server that didn’t compare the ticket to the food or that this other server did compare the ticket to the food, but just missed it(HIGHLY UNLIKELY, but possible).

So QUIT LYING to the public, because what you are saying isn’t true MOST of the time. MOST of the time, your server had SOMETHING to do with HOW LONG YOU waited for your food or bar drinks. I didn’t say always, but most of the time, your server is WHY you are waiting longer in general. That is the truth, you can’t argue with facts. I KNOW, WE EXPERIENCED IT!! My husband and I have been going out to eat just about almost every weekend(2-3 times a weekend) since Nov. 2000 since we met, so we know more than you do!!

If it takes forever to get out the kitchen, you should be *CHECKING* on WHERE THE HELL THE FOOD IS. The kitchen staff could have not even gotten the order and the more time you take to find that out, the more time you have taken from us due to *YOU*!

I also thought about some more things that the server can control with how long you wait for your food:

1. Once, we had a Red Lobster waitress had our 2 entrées on the tray as well as 2 side salads that were for a couple that wasn’t even there when we ordered. Anyway, instead of bypassing their table to hand us ours first since WE DID ORDER FIRST(common sense would tell you that it takes more time to cook food than it does to fix a side salad anyways even if it wasn’t our server that delivered our food, but it was our waitress that delivered our food), she decided to hand them theirs first off the tray. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS IN THE SERVER’S CONTROL TO HAND OUT THINGS OFF THE SAME TRAY IN THE ORDER IN WHICH IT WAS ORDERED IN!!

2. Once, we had a waitress that greeted us which we ordered an appetizer as well as our drinks when greeted. I saw she tucking in chairs at empty tables and pretty much doing everything but coming back to get our entrée order. Well, I found out what happened. She brought out our appetizer and when I asked she said that she wanted to wait to put in our entrée orders. The thing is, that delayed us more by not at least coming to GET our orders. That way, when the appetizer was ready, we wouldn’t have gotten delayed eating our appetizer since we then had to give our entrée orders when we could have given our entrée orders WELL BEFORE THAT and we would have gotten our entrées faster due to that she could have just left to put our entrée orders into the computer after delivering our appetizer instead of taking time to order when our appetizer was sitting in front of us.

The point is, SHE delayed our entrées as well as to be able to start eating our appetizer because she could have at least TAKEN our entrée orders and then when our appetizer would have been brought out, could have immediately gone to the computer to put our entrée orders in.

What she did was make us wait while our hot appetizer was sitting in front of us, we couldn’t touch it, because we had to order our entrées and could have done that wayyy before that.

She also delayed our entrées because we had to spend extra time AFTER our appetizer arrived to give her our entrée orders when we could have done that wayyyy before that.

3. Once, we had a waitress that assumed that because they were out of raspberry topping for a cheesecake slice when we had ordered dessert that she’d bring us strawberry. Turns out, she knew when she put in the order that the computer had it the manager told us. So she did it on PURPOSE to be so lazy and uncaring as to not come to ask if we wanted the next closest thing. We didn’t, we sent it back, so she had MORE WORK. Also, she didn’t even think about what if someone is allergic to strawberries. I just honestly can’t believe someone would do that. If they are out of something, common sense would be to come to see if the next closest thing is ok. Not everyone wants the next closest thing. So it wasn’t like it was just getting the order wrong by accident or by not verifying the written order with what she was bringing or putting in the order wrong by accident, this was on PURPOSE to be LAZY and to ASSUME. I didn’t know at first that she did that. I thought at first she just was that stupid(or truly just messed up(highly doubt it)) to bring us strawberries on top of a cheesecake when we ordered raspberries.

Continued:

4. Your server delays coming to get your order or delays you ordering due to personal conversation. We have had that before as well. Once, we had a waiter that we didn’t know after waiting 15 mins. for a table on Mardi Gras day ask us BEFORE we ORDERED ANYTHING “How’s y’all’s Mardi Gras”“Go to any parades.” See, I don’t mind chit chat with a stranger, but be considerate to do it AFTER we have our orders into the computer so you don’t take up our time. THAT was in the server’s control as well. We have also had servers not come to get our order due to playing around. That’s in the server’s control too.

So just remember BEFORE you go blaming the cooks, you might want to truly (THINK) BEFORE YOU BLAME THE WRONG PEOPLE!!

Sure if you put in the order as quickly as you could as long as it is in a fair manner such as I wouldn't expect you to put in my order if you had food to deliver because that food was ordered BEFORE mine, but if you had time to buss a table, you have time to put in my order BEFORE doing that; that you would have put in the order correctly and brought it out as obviously correct as you could possibly see, and you checked on the *TIMING* of the food where it was, and you brought it out as SOON as it was ready if you had the chance such as if you have time to clean up, yeah, you have a chance, THEN you wouldn't be at fault, understand?

My point is,*ALL* of those goals have to be met for you to not be at fault and A LOT of the time, those goals are *NOT* met. We have had servers *ADMITTING* they forgot to put in our orders, ADMITTING they put in the order wrong, SAW they brought us the wrong food, etc. You have **********LOTS********** OF CONTROL HOW LONG SOMEONE WAITS FOR THEIR FOOD WITH ALL OF THOSE GOALS YOU HAVE TO NOT MESS UP ON TO HAVE IT NOT BE IN YOUR CONTROL!

I am not even registered to vote, much less give a crap about politics. I am not interested and my vote wouldn't have helped anyways. I think it's boring politics personally and life will go on with or without my 1 vote.
