or...not leaving a tip BECAUSE you got bad service?

Don't not leave a tip, leave a tip of one single penny, so they know you didn't forget. Also doing what this guy did helps too

leaving no tip just makes you look like an ass...but leaving an insultingly small tip is the best way to go...lets em know you were willing to tip but because of their service you didnt think they deserved much
User avatar #125 to #122 - ILIEKPEPSEE (07/05/2013) [-]
I'd say leaving no tip should honestly say "you dont deserve one", not " i'm a cheap, thankless cunt"

unfortunately thats how its seen mostly

Don't not leave a tip. If you don't leave a tip, they'll think you're just an asshole who doesn't tip. If you leave a small tip, they're much more likely to recognize that you weren't satisfied with their tip.

If you got **** service, you should have all right not to tip. Thats how it SHOULD work. In reality, unfortunately, restaurants pay their workers **** and they have to basically live off of tips.

Maybe you could leave those troll jesus dollars.....

I'm sorry for having opinions

It's because here in the states restaurants are the only places that are allowed to not pay minimum wage, so tips are usually the only way employees can earn money.

hate to burst your bubble, but restaurants still follow federal wage laws. Still isn't a **** load of money, but they aren't making any less than your local grocery store stock boy
#128 to #44 - chubbies (07/05/2013) [-]
Yes they are. Federal minimum wage is $7.25. The Federal minimum wage of a tipped employee is $2.13.

I never got why not tipping is like worst thing to do in America so much for having FREEDOM when you're forced to leave tips by peer pressure
User avatar #131 to #8 - useroftheLOLZ (07/05/2013) [-]
Waiters, and I think bus boys, are not paid minimum wage, as a % of their income is from tips, and such, so if you don't get tipped, you can loose anywhere from 50 to 30 percent of your wages for that day.

it is not forced
User avatar #194 to #31 - hawaiianhappysauce (07/06/2013) [-]
Some places actually include the automatic 10% tip in the bill, therefore you are required to pay at least 10%
User avatar #83 to #31 - Kimy (07/05/2013) [-]
I said peer pressure it is a kind of force
User avatar #45 to #31 - ILIEKPEPSEE (07/05/2013) [-]
Some places unfortunately force tips. The system is broken as **** , they pay their workers dust from their pockets, make their customers pay the rest. It's called a GRATUITY for a reason.
#51 to #45 - jackassalope (07/05/2013) [-]
How is an automatic 15% tip on the bill any worse than them raising the price of everything on the menu and paying their employees more? It's just a part of the cost of going there. At least with the 15% gratuity, you know that the employees are getting the money.
User avatar #55 to #51 - ILIEKPEPSEE (07/05/2013) [-]
i'd much rather see the employees paid better than my tip being their only good source of income.
#57 to #55 - jackassalope (07/05/2013) [-]
Well, that's an issue, forced gratuity or not. Restaurants are allowed to pay under minimum wage as long as tips actually put them over. So if the staff doesn't get enough tips, the restaurant is forced to cover the difference.
User avatar #58 to #57 - ILIEKPEPSEE (07/05/2013) [-]
It's a broken system, like i said
#60 to #58 - jackassalope (07/05/2013) [-]
You also said "Some places unfortunately force tips."

I'm saying I don't get how that is "unfortunate".
User avatar #62 to #60 - ILIEKPEPSEE (07/05/2013) [-]
Tips are meant to be an extra reward for good service, not compensating for the **** that the restaurant pays its workers.
#223 to #62 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
Because tips are not taxed.
Or rather, there's a minimum amount they can claim, regardless of how much they make.
And in a lot of places, the 15% gratuity is for parties of a certain size. My local Grapeleaf (Mediterranean cuisine) adds it for parties of ≥10
#49 to #45 - bbzz ONLINE (07/05/2013) [-]
it's still optional
User avatar #50 to #49 - ILIEKPEPSEE (07/05/2013) [-]
Not everywhere.

Some stupid ass places REQUIRE you to pay like 15% tip, so you know, this is a fun alternative...
User avatar #30 to #5 - nimblewalrus (07/05/2013) [-]
That's only if you have a large party, and then it's automatically added to your bill.
