Alright people. Here is something you may not realize or understand... the people that wait on you when you go to a restaurant get paid on average $2.15-$3.50/hr nationwide. That means that they completely depend on tips to pay their bills and support their families. If your service was terrible by all means don't leave a tip, if your food wasn't good.. that is not your servers fault and they should not be punished for it. By the way.. When you don't tip somewhere whoever was waiting on you is going to tell everyone they work with that you didn't tip.. thus they will not try to take care of you when you come in because who wants to get paid $2/hr to bust their ass for someone?

The main concept to take away from this is this... DO NOT FUCK WITH THE PEOPLE WHO FEED YOU

Maybe you should have stayed in school past 5th grade, then you could have got a better paying job.

Then who would wait on your fat f*cking ass every time you go out to eat? Are we to assume that you'd just draw a chair up to a communal trough and start snorkeling?

Show some goddamn respect for the people who do the jobs you can't, or won't. And f*cking cough up a few bucks to pay them while you're at it.

save ur breath amigo, sows like that will never learn to treat the peons with respect

they also never notice the boogers and earwax and ass sweat and other assorted excretions hidden in their meals

because you might not remember your waiter, but you can guarantee he or she remembers you

food for thought ;)

bon appetit!

You must not live here. If they make it past 8th grade we hire them to run the city. If they get past 9th grade we vote them in for Governor.

I can see why you don't get tips. People who speak and act like you should not be allowed to work in the public. By the way, what did God have to do with this?

The way I look at it if you have a job like that than you earn your tip I start out at 2 bucks then if your good i go up front there if I don't get a refill it goes down if your rude as hell it goes down just cause your miserable at work don't make your customers miserable as well just my thoughts

I admire the perseverance of whomever has gone through this thread enough to RATE people up 7 or 8 times EACH. That takes a ton of dedication, and a severe lack of ANYTHING ELSE to do on a weekend.

Most people would go on a ate, or hang out with a fiend, or go bowling, or something. But one dude thought this thread important enough that he spent his Friday AND his Saturday doing nothing else but rating posts in this thread. Over. And Over. And Over.

That is truly special.

Who gives a damn? Stupid girl shouldn't be working anyways. She needs to be at home in the kitchen and washing clothes. Everybody knows that women can do good jobs. Stick to what you are good at ladies. Being a servant to men. Who let a woman speak in here anyways? Blasphemy.

I've been married twice and I've yet to be a servant to a man. As far as tipping, if you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to dine out.

Anyone who would use such language as I've read on here shows their level of intelligence and earning more money is not likely in any career for them.

Tips should be given to those that earn it, not automatic. Paris lacks alot when it comes to those that earn a tip.

Sometimes people only have enough money to pay for the food so the restaurant should pay enough so that employees don't depend on tips. I don't tip when I don't have enough money to do so. As a waiter you just have to know that everyone will not tip. If you cannot handle that, don't become one.

Just because you bring me my food does not mean you've accomplished being a waiter or waitress. There's more to it.

Attitudes like what started this thread is why restaurants don't make it here and why Applebee's has yet to arrive. They know the pool of people to hire from is almost non-existent.

Peace Out.
