how about you nig nogs stop getting tip jobs and get one with a fixed rate? i swear one of the most annoying things is hearing someone talk about how they didn't get the tip they deserved.
User avatar #513 to #488 - Deeticky (11/27/2012) [-]
In many states, waiters and waitresses get paid under minimum wage and are expected to make the difference in tips.
User avatar #498 to #488 - kanatana ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
Sometimes, those are the only jobs they can get. It's really not easy working in food service, dude. Trust me, I know from experience. How about you cut them a break?

I used to work at a legit pizza restaurant where tips were common but not mandatory.

One day, I was waiting on an old married couple. They ordered over $40 worth of **** . They tipped me a Tootsie Roll. Uno, one, a single ******* Tootsie Roll.

They must've been at that table for two entire goddam hours, ordered over $40 worth of ******* food, and then they tipped me a ************* cunt roll. And, to top it off, after I gave them their bill, when they were about to go and pay it, the lady dawned this oh-so-sweet old lady face and proceeded to tell me about how they were free over at the UPS next door, and that she must've grabbed a dozen such Tootsie Rolls.

And you kept them...
User avatar #486 to #472 - FUUUU (11/27/2012) [-]
Once again...

I tried to return them, but she insisted I keep them. It would be rude to refuse something that someone insisted I keep; it usually makes a person feel like you don't appreciate the gesture they are giving you.
User avatar #560 to #486 - tealkangaroo (11/27/2012) [-]
okay, that's a nice thing of you to do!

probably Because it was a nice gesture and not many people do that

this would be really funny if at the end of the story the waitress was still pissed for not getting a money tip.

i had no feels.......but i respect the oc and could see how one would feel

User avatar #461 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
I find it humorous that waitresses get pissy when they don't get tipped. Its not like the do a hell of a lot. Took my order and got my drink? Cool? I'd rather give my tip to the guy doin the dishes or actually cooked my food.
User avatar #497 to #461 - buttgauges (11/27/2012) [-]
Oh please, the actual cooks get paid way more than the waitresses if it's a high quality restaurant. I've worked in the restaurant business for many years and working in front is WAY more stressful and takes so much more hardwork than in the kitchen. You don't have to deal with rude people when you're cooking. Even dishwashing is easier than waitressing...

And waitresses get paid way less than minimum wage and their tips = their income. So yeah, it's a bit reasonable to be upset if someone doesn't tip.
User avatar #502 to #497 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
Source? Have you worked in a kitchen?

To get a job cooking in a high qualitiy restaurant you need some form of collage... Of course you would get paid more.
User avatar #507 to #502 - buttgauges (11/27/2012) [-]
My source = my past job. I've worked as a prep cook beside the real chef and I've dish washed as well.
You should be a little more specific then, because the only cook I'd be happy with tipping is a professional chef considering they do a **** ton of work. But since they are paid well and do not rely on tips whereas the waitresses do and have to deal with our bitching, I would tip them.

But when my boyfriend was 17 he was a cook at a restaurant- obviously not a high quality one. His job didn't take much effort.. he just cooked the food. Why would I want to tip someone doing that?
User avatar #511 to #507 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
What kind of restaurant did he cook at then? I work at a roadhouse type and when its busy I barely have time to breathe while the waitresses always seem to have to have time to gossip or something to waste time.
User avatar #515 to #511 - buttgauges (11/27/2012) [-]
He worked at Applebees, if you're familiar.

For some reason I highly doubt that.. if the kitchen is busy so is the wait staff.
User avatar #520 to #515 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
Maybe its because I'm a sucker and will do most anything people ask me to do.

User avatar #521 to #520 - buttgauges (11/27/2012) [-]
I know that feel! When I first started I'd be bustling around trying to help with everything anybody asked of me.

Buuuut after awhile I told them to piss off because I had my own stuff to do. :P
#491 to #461 - blahdudeblah (11/27/2012) [-]
so you don't feel like tipping the person who gets paid NOTHING BUT TIPS to bring you your food and take your order? Who gets to be on their feet ALL day/night long, dealing with dickwads like you?

Yeah, go **** yourself with the first sharp object you can find.
User avatar #495 to #491 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
Never said I don't like tipping them. I just said that they shouldn't get pissy went they don't get tipped. Some people wanna take their loved one out on a date but are a little strapped for cash. No were is there a law that you have to tip.

In rebuttle to the sharp object statement.

Is that really necessary? Why can't you say what you mean without the immature insult?
#501 to #495 - blahdudeblah (11/27/2012) [-]
because you are saying that just because you sat on your ass and had your food brought to you doesn't mean that you shouldn't pay the person that's bringing you your food. Do you realize how often servers have to chose between rent and food because of ******** like you?

does that mean that if you get a cab ride you should only have to pay for the gas you used?
User avatar #506 to #501 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
Bro. I work in a Kitchen okay? I know what its like on the other end.

Also that is a bad example. You have to pay the person who drove you. So why aren't you tipping the person who made you the food? Not just the person who walked it out to you?
#510 to #506 - blahdudeblah (11/27/2012) [-]
and in most restaurants the tip is split between busboys, servers, the host/hostess and the cooks.

just because you work in a ****** restaurant doesn't give you the right to treat staff at other restaurants like **** . If you aren't going to tip, then go to a ******* fast food restaurant you tightwad prick.
User avatar #514 to #510 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
Tight wade prick, I like that one. I actually don't work in a ****** restaurant. Some of the waitresses share their tips, most don't. You seem to be really angry right about now.
#522 to #514 - blahdudeblah (11/27/2012) [-]
because, you are getting a service. Pay for it. You don't like it? Go to a ****** Mcsuckmydick and just pay for your food.

I've had to go hungry because of tightwad pencil dick ******** like you. So go **** yourself. You want to go eat at a nice restaurant, THEN PAY YOUR GODDAMN WAITER. Otherwise go get yourself a ************** at some fast food piece of **** .
User avatar #526 to #522 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
I literally cannot stop laughing at your comment. You have the most creative insults.

To get to the point. I work in a kitchen. Sure the waiters need the tips, but your service better be ******* amazing because you don't actually make me my food. You didn't come up with the recipe. Yes I understand that some things are out of your control I can deal with that. Your senseless fit of rage isn't helping me feel sympathy for you.
#537 to #526 - blahdudeblah (11/27/2012) [-]
that is actually a valid argument. and I was kinda trying to troll you. meh, troll attempt aborted. I'm not much of a troll anyways, picture kinda related.


yeah, you gotta have great ******* service. I work for my tips.

The only reason one of my customers (at least back when I worked this, thankfully I got a better job) ever gets anything late is when the kitchen is just starting to run a bit behind, which happens and you gotta check in and let them know when their dish will be coming out and see if they want an appetizer while they wait, you also gotta run your ass around your tables to make sure no one's drinks stay empty for long, and just to check in and make sure no one needs anything else.

I'm not saying tip the ****** waiter, but when your waiter does their job, you are their paycheck. How would you like it if your boss could randomly say "Well, you worked your ass off in a hot ass kitchen, made your dishes fast, the right way, didn't do anything wrong, but tonight I feel like being a tightwad so you don't get paid for tonight."?

You'd quit on the spot. But as a waiter, that happens. You do your job, you work, do everything right, but its a slow night, or people are just being tightwads and you barely make enough money to replace the gas you spent getting to the damn restaurant. Let alone enough to pay bills or buy food for the week.

Well that's what you were saying, that a waiter has no right to be mad if they do their job and don't get paid cause someone feels like being a tightwad.
#466 to #461 - Rascal (11/27/2012) [-]
they get paid less than minimum wage because they receive tips, its their source of income. don't be that guy, tip nicely :)
User avatar #464 to #461 - FUUUU (11/27/2012) [-]
When I wait tables, there's customers like you that I don't have to constantly wait on, and then there's customers that make me bend over backwards. I was nice to a family one time even though their child threw a fit and threw his milk at me. I had to wear a milk-soaked outfit for the rest of my shift. I work hard for my tips. That is why I'm mad when people don't tip me. I live paycheck to paycheck and until I find another job, this is all I have. I give excellent service to everyone that comes in, even though those who don't tip make me mad. I don't make it obvious to the customers that I am upset. Never have, never will.
User avatar #469 to #464 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
Sure sounds rough. Milk soaked clothes. I don't really mean to demean your job or anything, because you do gotta put up with **** that I don't, but... If you get pissy because somebody didn't tip you? Thats just selfish.
#493 to #469 - Rascal (11/27/2012) [-]
A percentage of tips earned goes to the other staff, you not tipping increases the amount that is given to the staff with no compensation. In a small sense you're literally taking money away from someone. I'm a waiter and if you think it's an easy job then you're dead wrong, people can be downright nasty. I seat you, get your drinks, take your order, talk to you, bring your food, clean up the dishes, then wipe your damn table so yes i would expect a tip. If you don't have extra money for the tip then don't go out to eat i'm not doing this out of generosity
User avatar #499 to #493 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
I work in a ******* kitchen. I've never gotten any tips ever. I've done literally 3 times the **** some of the waitresses do and they still walk out of there with more money? Like that makes sense.
User avatar #512 to #499 - varvaki (11/27/2012) [-]
I know in some places the waitstaff is completely incompetent and barely do anything and expect high tips and i can understand how people can be discouraged by the little they do. However, in my case i do more than most others for only 2.83$ so my tips are necessary. I know the kitchen can be hard to do and trust me i respect my kitchen a lot but if they mess up they can blow it off but if i **** up i have to pay for the food and then apologize to no end to the customer
User avatar #518 to #512 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
I'd file a complain or some **** . If the cook messes up at my work they pay for it. If the waitresses drop it or write down the wrong thing they gotta deal with that.
#462 to #461 - Rascal (11/27/2012) [-]
Considering they make about 4.25 an hour, tips are their real income. Stop being a cheap ass.
User avatar #477 to #462 - nothingatall (11/27/2012) [-]
I'm up here in Canada, but servers make 8.25 an hour, plus tips, starting wage in a kitchen is 10.25(minimum wage), that 2 bucks means **** all, as a server can make a few hundred if they aren't incompetent, even with a tipout the kitchen staff makes nowhere near the kind of scratch that a good server can make, thing is most serves expect to be able to look pretty and get 15% or better every time, and that's just dumb. All that being said, I tip stupid well(30%+ unless you really **** the bed), because I know that there are ****** customers who are just going to treat someone like **** so they don't have to feel obligated to tip(or even to get free food, which is despicable imo)
#556 to #477 - muchosgustaman (11/27/2012) [-]
America sounds **** . In New Zealand, minimum wage is $13 dollars an hour. We don't tip though. Ever. Even so, I'd rather have a definite, slightly lower income. Youth minimum is $10 an hour. (Under 18)
#468 to #462 - imangryman (11/27/2012) [-]
You can't be paid under minimum wage from a working company or business. It is illegal. Dumb cunt.
User avatar #475 to #468 - deathchain (11/27/2012) [-]
You have a sound argument except for the fact that they are paid less than minimum wage.
User avatar #484 to #475 - imangryman (11/27/2012) [-]
Minimum wage is $7.75 in my state anyway. That is what they are paid, even if they are under 18. 15% of their tips are shared with the bus boy. This is if you are talking about working in a restraunt as a waiter. Even burger flipping gets you $7.75 an hour.
#496 to #484 - blahdudeblah (11/27/2012) [-]
yeah, except when you are a tipped employee, you only get paid the taxes you pay on the "minimum wage" you are supposed to make, but because you are tipped, the laws says that if your tips don't make up for minimum your employer is supposed to make up the difference. Only they don't.   
So yeah, if you don't get tips then your taxes get paid, you still don't get 			****		.   
Try to know what the 			****		 you are talking about before you open your mouth, it helps you not look like a retard.

User avatar #467 to #462 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
From working in a restaurant cooking and doing dishes, both waitresses and kitchen staff got paid the same hourly wage. They also got tips which we did not. Seeing as only 5 states do not have minimum wage laws it is highly likely that they are not making 4.25 an hour because the federal minimum wage is 7.75
User avatar #470 to #467 - FUUUU (11/27/2012) [-]
My wages are 4.63$/hr plus my tips. The wages are made to accommodate the tips I make.
User avatar #473 to #470 - fareyt (11/27/2012) [-]
I'd find a different job then because you are getting screwed.
User avatar #481 to #473 - FUUUU (11/27/2012) [-]
Believe me, I'm looking, and when I find one I'm out of here. But until then, the tips pay my bills. There's been a few days where I can't afford to go to the supermarket to buy groceries. So I hope you will begin to understand why I get upset when I bust my ass for a table to make them happy and they don't tip. Many of the other local hippies have come in, ordered large meals, had me break even larger bills for said meals after running me all around the restaurant, and left me pennies. That's why I was angry at first, I thought that was going to be the case.

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

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.

Yeah, it probably varies from place to place.  I talked to one person in a restaurant in Wyoming, and she said she got like 3.something an hour plus tips there, and it was legal because of the tips.

while were on the subject of tipping
do you tip the delivery driver of a pizza?
User avatar #528 to #434 - puredeliciousness (11/27/2012) [-]
I worked for Dominos for 7 months before I started college this year. The delivery charge that the pizza places charge goes to the store, not the driver. The drivers are paid minimum wage otherwise, and without people tipping, we wouldn't be able to afford to do our jobs. Between gas money and maintenance on our vehicles, we would end up making basically nothing. And my personal experience, although not all pizza places do this, but when I was working, I had to prep all of the food, make the orders when they came in, bake them, package them up, and deliver them to the customer. So I didn't just drive, I did everything for the customer from beginning to end. So you should always tip your delivery driver at least $2.50-$3.00 or more. It makes our job worthwhile and it makes it so we can keep doing it.

tl;dr : Always tip your pizza delivery driver a few bucks. They really do need it.
#463 to #434 - rfcoke (11/27/2012) [-]
Most pizza places include a delivery charge in the price of your pizza. But yes, tipping is considered polite.
#445 to #434 - comehonorfacetwice (11/27/2012) [-]
I usually round up to the nearest dollar and add one if its close to a bill amount. So if the total was 8.87, I'd give a 10 and say "Keep the change." But if the total were 9.87, I'd still only give them a 10 and say 'Keep the change."
User avatar #494 to #445 - thedramallama (11/27/2012) [-]
