    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%.

    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.

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


    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.


    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.

    it is not that i do nto see the work done worth that money
    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.

    i am nto complaining, not do i bitch baout alot i simply explaining why i think the over 10% is absurd. all jobs have stress, many jobs have late nights all those do nto jsutify a more than 40k salary

    the barternters i tip have to do more than pour drinks they have ot make them and not fuck them up(which is harder than it sounds).

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