People that don't tip
not poor

lol @ poor people.
i guess if i lived a life of low standards i would be hesitant to tip too. everyone has an excuse for their financial situation ... but it seems those people take it out on others by not tipping. likely, these are the same people that they are entitled to service equal to that of fine dining when they spend 5 dollars on chicken wings and 0 on the water because the coke is too expensive.

oddly enough, the average richmond ky server has a much higher education level than the majority of the patrons they serve.

however, in regards to my ball sac, it needs a good gargling. get to it.

No I'm not buy neither are servers technically. Any restaurant has to make up ur pay if u don't at least clear minimum wage in an hour. U don't JUST make 2.13 if u don't get a single tip. And besides that, servers make decent money anyway! All it takes is a couple tables leaving u at least 5$ and u are making 12.13 an hour. That's good. Yes I know some people don't leave that much but some leave way more. And most servers have more than 2 tables at a time too so that's even more per hour. So just be happy with what people give u

technically the restaurant is supposed to make up that wage to equal out to minimum. unfortunately it does not always work that way. it is common practice for managers to change tips in order to pay less. this is very illegal, but never exposed. a few years back i worked as a server for a week before changing jobs. i got my w-2 from them the next tax season and found out they had claimed an astounding $300 in tips for the 4 nights i was on the floor. they screwed be over and there was nothing i could do about it except pay the taxes.

this happens daily and 99.9 percent of servers have no idea. they get used to not getting a paycheck so they never question tip claiming.

Also the server is suppose to tip the guys who clean the tables at the end of night. You ever think about that.I tip on how good my service is.lowest i ever paid is a buck for poor service. This thread just shows how Richmond is full of low lifes who all they can do is bash every thread and put everbody they can think of down Frankly my dear i do not care what you all think of me and i would not even be here if i was not done wrong. say what you want because over half the cops and city workers r scumbags just thinking how to beat somebody out of there money or not tipping.
Have you ever drove on I 75 threw Richmond and never seen a cop not have somebody pulled over?
I hope the servers put a little something in your food for free
Your fav guy to bash over and out
That's their fault for tipping the table guys! Those guys get a full pay check. They don't make 2.13 an hour. The restaurant is already paying them to do it and that's their damn job! The hell if they deserve a tip at all

You know nothing. Most don't get a full paycheck since they are technically working for tips also. Some restaurants the servers tip the bus boys, people that take out their food, the bartender, and the hostess. That's easily anywhere from $10-$20 automatically taken away from them at the end of the night.

So say on one particular night (and this does happen) all of the assholes that say "ah she'll make plenty from everyone else" comes in and sits in one girls section. She works all night, takes 15-20 tables, and makes $40. She has to tip out all of those people, and even if she says "Sorry I didn't make much, I'll tip out what I can," she walks away at the end of the night with $25 after working for 8 hours. Sure management is supposed to bump her check up to minimum wage (doesn't usually happen) and then all of that money on her check goes straight to taxes and she still gets a $13 check at the end of 2 weeks.

And yes, servers remember you. Yes, they are usually all pretty good friends and spread the word that you're a piece of trash that doesn't tip. Yes, that's why you get bad service and probably a little something extra in your food that you never even notice. I know exactly what I'd have ready for a guy that left me a stack of pennies. They wouldn't, but me and all of my servers friends definitely would.

That's not my fault. U can't tell me that everyone in the damn restaurant only makes 2.13. All those other positions are paid by the restaurant. They don't work for tips nor do they deserve any. They don't do anything.

Plus...no one is gonna get that many tables in one night and all of them only leave $2 each. Just not gonna happen. Some people may tip that but plenty tip way more

Trust me. It happens.

You can get mad about the food all that you want. I'm just saying that it will happen to you if you decide not to tip. May not be at every restaurant. May only be at one restaurant. But you'll never know which, and I wouldn't want to take those chances if I were you.

People who take jobs with tip-based income are gambling. IF they are well tipped, sure, they make out like bandits (and rarely claim it all on taxes). That's a big IF. Should they get stiffed, they don't make enough to cover the gas to get to work. So of course they must get on here, pulling heartstrings and making a case for how it's a "sign of class" and "common courtesy" to tip well, because it hedges their bet.

But the fact remains, they are gambling, and sometimes gamblers lose.

Sure, they could work a service job with a flat hourly rate - fast food & grocery & supercenter jobs are in no short supply - but then there's zero chance of those occasional higher gains. So they shun such stability in favor of their gamble on a higher payout.

In this economy, where everyone is tightening their belts, their bets aren't paying off as well. No surprise. Yet they argue their point all the more, even threatening poor service or criminal sabotage of a customer's food & drink in an attempt at low-class extortion, when mere heartstrings don't get them their contrived idea of "their due."

And this, they believe, will somehow inspire us to tip them MORE?

I think not.

Instead, I personally vow to patronize and reward only businesses and staff that have the good sense to avoid this archaic and unstable pay scheme, and avoid being put in a situation where my levels of class and integrity are called into question by quibbling gamblers who feel they aren't being rewarded enough for what little they do.

I myself make a fair living, on my feet, with absolute certainty that I more and for longer than they dare claim; I assure you, I deserve the money in my wallet far more than they deserve a piece of it, just for handing me some food and a drink. They act as if their jobs are some mighty deed worthy of song and praise, and woe be the wicked cheapskate for not rewarding them for their feats of wonder and glory. No, Bitch. You just carry some plates and pitchers for a bit.

I advise anyone who DOES occasion businesses with tip-paid employees to pay and tip via debit card only, not cash, so that these people are forced to claim those earnings on their taxes.

Perhaps they will eventually learn a valuable lesson: That the stability of taking a job at the minimum hourly wage or above might be consistently less than you imagine you're worth, but it's better than resorting to pandering and threatening like a spurned beggar to make an ill-advised and outmoded gamble-of-a-job keep paying off. If you were worth more, you'd not be doing what you're doing for a living.
