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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Actually, it is for a tip when the wages I have are set to accommodate getting tipped. Minimum for waitresses is 4.63$/hr, vs the normal minimum wage of 7.65$/hr or something like that. If that wasn't the case, I wouldn't care if I was tipped and would still work my ass off.

Let me put it another way:
You're looking for a job. You apply at a grocey store.
They hire you and tell you this:
Your job is to carry out peoples groceries, but we wont pay you minimum wage. you make below that and have to rely on the goodwill of people tipping you for you to reach that. What do you say?
If you take that job and rely on people being nice to you so you can afford to live, thats ******* stupid.

That doesn't address the point I just mentioned.

Also, if people actually started tipping these people reliably, then maybe their wage would go down. However, they don't, and as such, you'll rarely find a job like that.

Waiters should only take jobs that are minimum wage. That would solve the problem. Tipping is not mandatory, so they should not rely on it as a source of income.

Well, good luck finding a job then, because the system isn't going to change unless EVERYBODY quits and NOBODY rushes to fill the employment void. And of course, the majority of people still tip.

Well, that's fair, I suppose. If you don't do it, the business has to cut it out of their profit margins.

Because causing businesses to make less money ALWAYS works out for the consumer, amirite?

they would just charge more for the food, which I would already be paying if I tipped, so I dont lose any money. Whats the problem here? It solves both problems. Consumers dont have to feel pressured to tip, waiters dont have to rely on tips. Everyone wins.

Not to mention dealing with trouble customers that are just plain assholes, Im sure his waiters/waitresses could tell him all about that. Not to mention there are customers that are extremely prejudice, make scenes for little reasons, or attempt to get stuff for free by scamming the waiter/waitress. Although I have never worked as a server, I have dealt with the same kind of people in retail, and it honestly makes the job exhausting. It makes me glad to live in a state with a minimum wage of almost $9.00

I'm ******* sorry for trying to buy my own **** and not drag down my family.
I have no problem carrying a huge tree for an old woman or a handicapped person.
But when I am told to carry a tree to a car because an able bodied man can't be bothered to cart it and lift it two feet into his car and not be tipped is ludicrous.
I don't get paid for carrying trees or showing customers where things are. That's courtesy. I get paid to stock shelves and carry boxes out of trucks into the store. I get paid to clean and put labels on products. I get paid to ring up items at the register. That's what my body is capable of. I push myself to be nice and getting a tip of even a dollar would be nice; people tip all the time. But not tipping for that level of work is ********. Have you ever worked in the service industry? Like in a restaurant or a garden center? If not, shut the **** up. You know nothing about what we do.
