Also I remember frequent low tippers and meticulously plan revenge

I really like the idea of SPope in full Damir talking about the wine list. 

 

But seriously, we can't accept tips at my place- the people who nevertheless leave money on the counter make us happy, and even without tips the cheapskates are obvious (and kinda pathetic).

The most expensive meal I've ever had happened to also be the highest tip I've ever given. It was in London at a Michelin starred restaurant, 12 courses + 6 amuse bouche + petit four , 12 wines + dessert wine + dessert sake. I was so drunk and happy by the end I just threw money on the table. Ended up being like 60% tip.. £400 frown.gif

Is it still generosity if you're expected to have to pay a tip?

even if the person serving me isn't having a great day and is curt/terse/even downright rude i tip 20%. working at a restaurant sucks.

that said i live in BC where the minimum wage is almost $11 last I checked, and you can't pay anybody less than that. america is twisted.

I pretty much follow the same procedure, I am not going to restaurants to talk about MY RIGHTS AND BLABLABLA SERVE ME. I just give tips 15-20% on a constant basis when in North America. I also tip third world workers cleaning my room or taking care of other stuff as a matter of principle and not as a calculation of how much they suck me for tip. I'd love tip to be included in the bill everywhere by law (say 15%). "Serving" the entitled assholes of today is already enough trouble in a life.

Just increase prices and pay staff a decent wage, adding a forced tip is a stupid way to do things as it creates confusion - prices on the menu should be what you pay.

I prefer to tip in cash so the waiter has money for weed tonight.

Regardless, ITT: posters who have been worked in restaurants, and posters who have not worked in restaurants, and Fok who leaves an older item from his vast belt collection each time he grabs some takeout.

Yeah, pretty much this. I don't want to have to contemplate the intricacies of the food service labor market before I sit down and order a meal.

The perfect sentiment to end this conversation.

Always tip your delivery guy at least $3. More if it's shitty out.

waiters/waitresses, deposit your tips on a regular weekly basis, even if you just withdraw them right afterwards. after a year or 2 of doing this regularly, you can use those tips as provable income in financing situations, just by providing bank statements to prove your average tips. it sucks seeing people unable to obtain financing because they're paystubs don't show their tips and only the minimum $2.50 hourly rate. even in situations with decent credit.

I know. The same with your corporate loan underwriter. One of the least tipped positions one can hold. People really don't have a thorough appreciation for the amount of work that goes into creating your average commercial credit product. At the end of the process, nobody really ever stops to think, "Hey, what about the person who put this whole thing together? What about a little something extra for that guy?"

FTFY

I don't think I've ever gotten particularly good or bad service at a restaurant.
