    People seem to give RRL a pass with its "appropriation" of Native American themes and imagery.

    Most line cooks don't become servers because they don't have the interpersonal skills required for the job, at least in fine dining. Every restaurant's different but they don't always work longer hours than servers. Of course I felt bad about their low-pay relatively especially for sous chefs who do exactly the same thing as the chef on his two days off, which is standard luxury chef's who own part of the business. In my experience post that chef makes around $1.5M a year and pays his sous chef who works longer hours than him only $70k. These aren't inflation adjusted but I wouldn't be surprised if sous chef's nominal salary's stayed static last 12 years.

    Where in the world do you live in that waiters make 25 an hour? I don't even think the a Ritz pays that much....Stop being cheap, it's part of the business of a sit down restaurant otherwise hit up food trucks or cook your own food.

    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.
