Gimmie a straw and a paper clip and spawn me into a room with an elite military force, and I'll show you how I prepare a meal.

That meant nothing in particular, but hi! I'm new here. I'm gonna need a guide, so put on your helmet. I got a pair for the both of us.

The place I worked was a legit sit-down restaurant where I waited tables, it was just next to a bowling alley, but you're right, you should go for those places if you can. My point was, that job was an example of how flawed that system is. The company pays almost nothing in labor costs and we have to rely on generosity from strangers to make money. It's like a slightly more dignified method of begging.

There are plenty of jobs which deal with people that don't have the tips, most of those work on a commission basis, like car salesmen. The fact is, making every server behave their best so that they can earn a decent wage is just terrible. If the job payed a decent amount in the first place, you'd more than likely want to keep it, and make sure you behave nicely enough to not get fired.

Well for starters I gotta say, commission is kinda almost the same idea as tips. One table is like one job, you gotta make sure to get your job completely done to get paid. So that's not the best example there if you ask me. Not that I don't get what you're saying, but I personally haven't worked a blue collar job yet that I didn't get shit as fuck tired of because of people and decide to quit for another job. I mean, at least in a service job based on tips I can imagine thinking "well if I stick around for a little longer maybe I can bus the table of some really rich dude or someone that just having a really good day." I mean, it's kinda hard to want to motivate yourself with not getting fired when you wanna quit anyways. But instead you tolerate it because, hey, you're getting paid by the hour so it doesn't matter too much how you work and you won't get workers comp unless you get fired, so you wait them out until they get tired of your average work ethic and decide to fire you but it never happens because they don't need your work ethic they just need your fucking body.

Sorry. Been through a few jobs at this point.

I love in Estonia, we don't ever tip and aervice doesn't expect you to and we always get great service. Your tipping culture is like your welfare one, everyone expects handouts.

I have been a server, let me tell you how it is. Depending on where you work, yes, you can make absolutely bonkers money, especially if your restaurant serves alcohol. That's great for those people.

I served at a sit-down pizza place connected to a bowling alley. Most of our customer base was over the age of 50, but we got all types. I got paid $2.13 per hour plus tips. On a slow day, it was very possible to make less than minimum wage over the course of your shift.

Another thing we learned quickly: Giving good service didn't mean jack shit. There were certainly people who appreciated it and gave bigger tips, but the vast majority of the population either doesn't tip, or tips a set amount regardless of the service (10%, etc). I gave great service as a point of pride, but it was really disheartening not being rewarded for it, so I ended up leaving.

It will never change though. The only way it will is if it becomes an actual law. Because restaurants would have to increase their prices to pay the employees, and even though the overall cost to customers might not change since they don't have to tip, they will see higher prices on the menu and it'll feel costlier.

tl:dr
It's a bad system that has gotten out of control and will probably never change.

I mean, I'm allowed to accept tips where I work too (Tim Hortons btw) but we get shit for tips if we get them. Like a dollar per 300 ice caps that we speed run to the window. I think the point of getting a job as server is to get one where you're supposed to make bonkers cash, like a b-dubs or something, not really at a concession stand in a bowling alley... I dunno, just my two cents.

That is really not an arguments. The same can be said for any job, what makes the heart surgeon you go to do his job? Same for a gardner? Do you tip them?
Servers are literally the only profession that lives on tips, that too in US. I honestly don't see how a stable income would make them all droll.
User avatar
#314 - ninjaspartan (09/22/2016) [-]
I can argue that. Doctors and surgeons go to school and work at a solid education to have that career. It pays well. Gardeners, well, they don't usually have to deal with people, just plants. Service based jobs that pay by the hour drain people more than those kinds of jobs. I know, I work at a Tim Hortons and by the end of the day no matter how convincing my shit eating grin is people are still assholes and I could care less by the end of the day because I'm getting the same pay either way and I probably don't have to see their faces again until the next day at least, instead of having to come back and check on them like I give a shit. Ultimately there are different stipulations for different jobs, but for someone who absolutely has to work for tips to make at the very least the same as a minimum wage worker, it probably makes a difference in their work ethic.

I live in Australia, you know what the motivation to keep good service is? Not getting fired. jobs are hard to get here, especially in customer service jobs cause they are so cushy.
#459 - snarkymark (09/22/2016) [-]
I live in Australia too. There doesn't seem to be any shortage of unhelpful people in the service industry. It's also a lot harder to get sacked in Australia than you suggest. However I've been to the US and service staff there really know how to serve. I think though that there are benefits to both systems and of course flaws. But if you asked me what we should do here I would suggest taking on the American way of doing things as far as service industry goes.
#477 - RyudenTamarashi (09/22/2016) [-]
I dunno man, I've seen a ton of people get fired from my job, and similar ones, for not keeping their service up to scratch. As someone that works in customer service, I try to be super friendly and helpful to any reasonable customer, cause I figure if I'm shit, and they don't come back, and the other workers do the same, we eventually lose too many regular customers which would result in lay offs~
#480 - snarkymark (09/22/2016) [-]
Lol funny pic. Having been in the service industry myself for many years and subsequently a customer, I can unequivocally say that in this country customer service is rare. So kudos to you for being an exception to the norm.
#482 - RyudenTamarashi (09/22/2016) [-]
Thanks! I like putting random pics and gifs in that I don't use alot~ And don't thank me for that bit mate, It should be common sense, bad service = no buisness = no job for you, so get your ass in gear and smile like you're the fuckin joker.
#484 - snarkymark (09/22/2016) [-]
Hey I agree 100% and prided myself on the same attitude. But you have to be blind to think that's the norm here. Fact is that in NSW at least service quality leaves a lot to be desired particularly when you see how it can be done elsewhere. The best thing I will say for the state of our service industry is that food is usually excellent quality no matter where you go but the high costs associated with operating a restaurant mean you pay through the nose for it.
#486 - RyudenTamarashi (09/22/2016) [-]
yea I'm up in QLD, I've been to Sydney so I know what you mean haha~ Up here its pretty decent all around, some places better than others so you are correct for some places at least! but yes, Australia is, how you say, fucking expensive as all fuck.
#465 - anon (09/22/2016) [-]
And what..reduce the wages of all our jobs in customer service to cater to this new American system? You are fucking delusional. You think the unemployment rates of young people are bad now? Just fucking imagine what would happen if you told someone in customer service that you are reducing their pay from ~$20 to ~$10 and yet you expect them to work just as hard if not harder to get paid something respectful. No one would want to do it. The American system of tipping for the persons living is fucking stupid and is nothing more than a con for the businesses to allow themselves to pocket more of a profit at the end of the day.

Here in America the motivation to work is to hope for a raise you'll never get and then move to another job that pays 0.50 more an hour only to realize no matter what you do or how many jobs you find you're just a useless log of shit drifting through the river of life.

You thought I would hide a silver lining in this spoiler. How wrong you were.

Canada killed/enslaved/mutilated/younameit their native population and tries to cover it up as hard as possible while maintaining "nice guy"-profile and it really makes me tick. This went on till the late 1980´s, at least officially. Racism towards natives is still going on strong. So fuck the hypocrite canucks.
#366 - anon (09/22/2016) [-]
Man you that shit and fuck you.
I live in Canada and I for one am sick and fucking tired of shelling out 20+ BILLION a year in federal taxes to natives that pay 0 taxes.
Next year, Canada will be 150 years old. That is 6 "generations" of people paying reparations to natives.
If there was one thing I could snap my fingers and change about Canada it would be to tell the natives to suck a big fat dick.
