Ha ha...

Women are consistently the worst tippers. Its a soft grift, 12, 13, 14%, as I said above, always subtle, never generous. Rarely does a woman give 10%, almost never about 15%.

Waiters are pretty much the only tipped job that you earn so little an hour. That is why the tips are so important.
still why should i tip so much knwoing that the person is working another 4-5 tables? should a waiter honeslty expect to bring in about minimum 80 an hour? I pay quality solictors less.

Not saying it never happens, but thats a really good way to lose your job over $2 or $3.

I'm not saying it does happen but, you can never be to sure.

I always checked on the customers at least twice after bringing them their food and refilled their drinks whenever the buser was busy. The experience definitely opened up about the harsh reality faced by service industry members.

People complain about waiters/waitresses feeling entitled, you should have seen how entitled some of the patrons felt. Since my income depended on customers, I, sometimes, felt like a slave trying to earn that 4 or 5 dollars. People show no respect nor common courtesy to the waiting staff. Often those who demanded and requested the most end up tipping the least.

I definitely learned a lot working at those places and realized a common courtesy between two people can go a long way.

Like some of the above posters have said, stereotypes exist for a reason and they were so true 99% of the time when I worked as a waiter.

that's greed to teh max.

my brother works for a chinese restarurante and he's convinced the owner is the real life version of Mr.Krabs. The other day he was pissed off because one of the cooks gave a customer a free eggroll. total loss; $1.

It's espeically endearing if the recommended dish is the most expensive on the menu. They have your best interests in mind.

In my 4 years of restaurant experience, I have never seen this happen. That could a be potential lawsuit situation.

last time i went to chili's they charged me an extra $30. anything is possible.

You just dont want to conform to a different system. I get it.

You KNOW they dont make $80 an hour. They make about 10-20$/hr over a 9 hour shift. If they made 80 there would be much more and better waiters out there.

lets keep your 20 an hour basis. that is an absurd of amount for the job being done? honestly they make about 40 k being waiter more than teachers make or jobs that require greater skills

I do, but I just don't like the experience of it. You are usually signing it right in front of the person and it ads a layer of unwarranted guilt. I wish they just wouldn't do it in the first place, since there is no real reason these people should EXPECT to be tipped.

My last year as a waiter was 1995 or 6. I made 60k that year. Its not much money. Stress? Late nights? No benefits? Problems getting loans from tip wages? Really man, its a shitty job that most would rather take the lower paying job. BUT, its the kind of job that if you hustle you can do well.

Best night I ever had was NYears eve 1994, $700 bucks in 1 night.

You want to complain about pay? There are bartenders out there making over 100k easy, many more. To pour a fucking drink? Serve a beer? Now thats bullshit.

Having done both jobs, I can assure you 1000% that a waiter's job is much harder than a bartender. Barternding is easy.
