Feeliest Feel of My Life (desc). Tonight a couple came into the restaurant I work at, a couple of locals I see all the time around town. They got a meal that ca

Tonight a couple came into the restaurant I work at, a couple of locals I see all the time around town. They got a meal that came out to be like 15 bucks. The girl paid in cash, exact change. I was about to get pissy because "blah blah no-tipping hippies etc", then the couple started arguing quietly.
The guy stormed out, leaving the girl looking super distraught. I walked over, asked if she needed anything. She looked at me like she was ready to cry. She went on to tell me she had to save as much money as possible, but her boyfriend wanted to go out, so in place of cash she tipped me with this pair of earrings she made by hand; she was so sorry she couldn't give me a real, proper tip.
I was so touched and shocked by this that I had to go into the back, so then my other customers wouldn't see me get all blubbery. I was amazed at how she chose to give instead of just walking out the door without tipping.

Why did I torture myself by reading that? I knew how bad it was gonna be by the second column, and I just kept going... No amount of metal or puppies can make me happy after what I have seen here today.

tis funny
In japan if you tip, it's considered insulting, the waiter(tress) will understand it as you insinuating that they don't make enough money to make a living at their current job, that their not good enough etc...

An Asian friend of mine learned that the hard way when he got chased out of a restaurant when on vacation...
#504 to #405 - anon (11/27/2012) [-]
well **** me 20 thumbs, why do i always get thumbs
I bet if I actually made an acc I would NEVER get them
#527 to #405 - grievver (11/27/2012) [-]
Plus it's also rude to finish your plate.
Gives the idea they didn't gave you enough food....

Here, an empty plate just means; Damn, good eatin' !
User avatar #417 to #405 - bambambaby (11/27/2012) [-]
I used to live in Japan, and when my dad first tipped, the waiter chased him down a whole block to find him and give the money back.
User avatar #425 to #417 - allion (11/27/2012) [-]
omg that is hilarious!
User avatar #580 to #425 - bambambaby (11/27/2012) [-]
Also, it's considered a compliment if you openly burp while you're eating. Like a compliment to the chef. :P It's so weird.

To be quite honest, as a British citizen, I feel that it isn't really fair to expect the customer to pay your wage.
I don't know how it works everywhere in the States, but it's stupid that restaurants can underpay their staff and expect their patrons to pay their staff's wages.
User avatar #399 to #100 - smede (11/27/2012) [-]
Something a lot of people don't know is that if a waiter's / waitress' tips dont amount to minimum wage ( say they make 25$ for their hourly pay, and 10$ in tips, versus making 50$ for minimum wage ) the employer has to pay that gap.
User avatar #160 to #100 - GoReMoTe (11/27/2012) [-]
I can't speak for other states, but in Indiana, minimum wage is $7.25/hour unless the position is a waiter/waitress or, occasionally, delivery, in which case the pay is ~$2.50/hour. These positions typically rely solely on their tips as a form of income. It's less reliable, but in some cases it can actually net more money than minimum wage due to the fact that the government doesn't tax tips.
#295 to #160 - tnrasdfjkl (11/27/2012) [-]
I can prove that since I live there. I have a friend who works at this chain called Johnny Rockets. He is a senior and still in school. He gets about that much even less. He busts his ass since he has to pay for his car, the insurance, etc. And the worst part is that he doesn't get a tip. Never. He has a roof and whatnot but I would hate to think if anyone were in that position paying for college, bills, etc. So, although I have not had an official job (which have tried to get but no luck), I empathize with those in that predicament.
#109 to #100 - coldflare (11/27/2012) [-]
While working as an employee in a restaurant I noticed that you actually get paid more from tips than from minimum wage... so its a good thing waitresses are tipped.
#107 to #100 - anon (11/27/2012) [-]
I think that is very right. Also a bit strange to accept a tip in the form of earrings IMO - especially considering the circumstances.
User avatar #459 - Hydrocircuit (11/27/2012) [-]
Tipping is a very strange American only tradition. I'm american and I was kind of shocked, I thought it was just universal (at least in places like Britain, AUstralia, NZ etc). Apparently American restaurant workers are severely underpaid!!!
#557 to #459 - muchosgustaman (11/27/2012) [-]
NZ minimum wage is 13 dollars an hour with no tips. I think that works out to around 11 USD
User avatar #558 to #557 - Hydrocircuit (11/27/2012) [-]
I've come to realize America is full of truly devious business people (especially when it comes to entertainment, I unabashedly say the US is the entertainment capital this side of the milky way). They notice a quirk of american tradition and use it to supplement their ****** wages they hand out and no one effing notices! Brilliant in an evil way.

Have you worn them/are you planning on wearing them?
You know... out of respect or something for such a kind act.

And to all these people commenting about tips and how she's lucky to even get tipped.... Are you serious? Most of these people are very uninformed and are being a bit rude.
User avatar #209 to #208 - FUUUU (11/27/2012) [-]
Of course, I wore them today.
User avatar #212 to #209 - ninjabadger ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
Oh that's good.

Thanks for, you know, not being disappointed by them. A lot of people would have been a little ticked at not getting a cash tip.
User avatar #216 to #212 - FUUUU (11/27/2012) [-]
Not only did I like them, I was touched by the fact that she willingly gave them to me and insisted I keep them, instead of just walking out and leaving nothing.
#236 - anon (11/27/2012) [-]
I hate how you expect tips. I'll ******* tip you if I feel you deserve it
User avatar #260 to #236 - BridgeTroll (11/27/2012) [-]
have you ever worked in a restaurant? im a waiter as well, my hourly pay is $1.50 an hour, and minimum where i live is $7.25. your tips are pretty much my only source of money
User avatar #278 to #260 - Aizlyn (11/27/2012) [-]
Sounds like you need a new job then.

see comment 270

Maybe your should find a better job then?
User avatar #275 to #270 - BridgeTroll (11/27/2012) [-]
waitering is one of the best jobs to get as a student because scheduling is flexible, plus you can work nights if you are in school during the day
User avatar #282 to #275 - agasti (11/27/2012) [-]
There are many other jobs that are flexible.
User avatar #261 to #260 - onionsam (11/27/2012) [-]
ins't that illegal to get paid under minimum?
User avatar #262 to #261 - BridgeTroll (11/27/2012) [-]
not if you work a job that recieves tips
User avatar #267 to #262 - onionsam (11/27/2012) [-]
is it almost obligatory to tip in the US (i'm assuming that is were you are from) because in NZ tipping isn't common
User avatar #272 to #267 - BridgeTroll (11/27/2012) [-]
indeed, i am an amerifag. and i know, most people dread taking tables of foreigners because as a general rule is that in most countries, waiters make minimum wage, so they come to america and dont tip. I had a party of 20 people from india one time, i worked my ass off for them, they bought 10 bottles of wine, bill came out to be around $700 and they didnt leave me a tip. i was ******* crying.
User avatar #280 to #272 - BridgeTroll (11/27/2012) [-]
plus, standard tipping is around 15%
User avatar #297 to #280 - shadovfox ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
i think it's kinda a rule that you shall always tip 10% or something. i was just in prague with friends from the UK and NZ. we were tipping quite alot, always 50-100 kr per person (we were 8 persons, so it becomes quite alot)
User avatar #300 to #297 - BridgeTroll (11/27/2012) [-]
its supposed to be 15 is standard. i never give a tip below 18% because as a waiter i know how ****** it is to get stiffed.
User avatar #303 to #300 - shadovfox ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
i always juat go for a round sum. like if the food i 340 kr i would throw in 400, much easier.
User avatar #284 to #272 - onionsam (11/27/2012) [-]
that sucks man. i would tip then if you aren't making minimum.
#314 to #236 - giveobamaquarters (11/27/2012) [-]
you realize waiters and waitresses usually get paid less than half of their state minimum wage, so their income depends on tips. that's like saying you're a cunt for expecting to get paid for doing your job. shouldn't you only get paid if your manager thinks you deserve it? dick
User avatar #242 to #236 - dullusername (11/27/2012) [-]
I hate how you expect thumbs. I'll ******* thumb you if I feel you deserve it
#359 - profanity (11/27/2012) [-]
