post #92611 of 109053
When giving one more dollar is like stabbing yourself in leg or when you start pulling out the calculator on your phone. Unless you don't really care about your service and your gonna sit there for a long time and your not even thinking about time as an issue then that's really on you and what you expect. But you get a lot of needy people in restaurants.

Right.

I do as sinnedk, for the most part: double the tax. It's fast, easy, and about 18%. If service was really good, I'll add few bucks. If service sucked, I'll tip the tax (that pretty much never happens).

Look at the total bill, after tax.

Move the decimal point one number to the left.

Multiply by two.

The easiest way to figure out a tip that might help to compensate for the abysmal, lower-than-minimum-wage wage that your server is paid.

Holy shit, we are on a forum where we discuss buying two thousand dollar jackets. You don't have eight bucks to add to a forty dollar meal? Bullshit, fuck that.

Who says that? Tip depends on service. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

Is it my English? I think I'm being pretty fucking clear about tipping 18% +/- 5-10% depending on service.

And I think it's pretty fucking clear that denying someone a livable wage by not tipping (due to the fact that shit laws allow restaurants to pay servers far below minimum) because your sandwich was late or the waiter wasn't chipper enough is appalling.

Please do not put words in my mouth, mr. fireflygrave. If my food is late or the waiter is average, that doesn't mean the tip will be smaller. Food issues are generally not the fault of the server. However, if the waiter is repeatedly forgetful, rude, or otherwise grossly unpleasant - then yes, I won't tip as much. Think of the other side - the waiters that are awesome. I should be tipping their shitty counterparts the same? Give me a fucking break.

Okay, sorry. I'm going to tone down my rhetoric; I'd rather have a discussion than a shrieking match.

First of all, you really aren't punishing the rude waiter in most cases. Most restaurants now (in my experience and the experience of friends who have worked many restaurant jobs) pool tips. All the tips go into one big fund which gets split by percentages according to job- busboy, waiter, host, etc. So, you don't really stick it to the server who was rude, you just reduce the salary of every employee who works at the restaurant. All of them are punished.

Additionally, I would say that even if it is a restaurant where you personally know that tips aren't pooled, you should speak to a manager rather than not tip, at the very least 18%. In no other job, even in other areas of the service industry, is the customer given control over the worker's salary. Sure, they can complain and the worker may be fired, but the customer cannot just dock the guy's pay, which is what you are doing when you don't tip. Like it or not, the reason that restaurants can pay $2.50 an hour, as ridiculous as that is, is that it is assumed that the tips made will average out to be equivalent to minimum wage. In this one situation, you legally have the right to cut the server's pay based on your evaluation of how well they do their job. I would still say that is unethical to do so.
