I shouldn't be forced to tip.
It goes both ways... I shouldn't have to tip to get good service.
example: Me and an old highschool friend met up this weekend in Houston. We ate at a decent resturant that claims to be Cajun (yeah.. umm.. first
off... I would know the difference and this is nothing more than a chain claiming to be something they're not). I don't dress in a suite and tie. I
don't wear top dollar shoes So anyone looking at me will have no idea if or how well I would tip.
I noticed our service was kinda crappy. When the guy came up to our table the 3 times in the whole 3 hours we sat there, I got the impression that he
didn't want to serve us. I assumed (I was married to a waitress) that he just assumed that we wouldn't tip.
My bill was 150$ and still I gave him 35$. That's OVER 10$ per hour, plus the amount that he was already making.
Still, I HATE to tip, and since this post, I've decided that I will no longer tip. I've come to this conclusion because of this topic. I've decided
that people rely too much on my tips and already offer me services based on my appearance and will serve based on what they have already learned.
From here own out, I will see it this way... If you want to make min wage or better... Look for another job.
When I get gas, I would be pretty P.O.ed if the person behind the counter sold me my gas and expected me to pay them for taking my money. I don't
care what a waitress has to do... It's part of the job. I have to go behind my hands at work and make sure they're doing their job and I have an
hourly job. Big woop, that they have to keep walking up to tables and asking "is there anything I can do?". More often than not... NO! You just
RUDELY interupted my conversation!
If prices have to go up on food because they pay their employees more, so be it. Don't tell me I can eat a big meal for $20 and expect me to pay your
employees wages too. If you don't like it.. FIND ANOTHER JOB! It's your problem. Not the patron!
I've heard every argument and it doesn't make one bit of sense to me to make your customers pay for your own damn employees. I pay for enough
already. To boot... Many waitessed only share with the bartender. I know this to be true. Just because your place does it, doesn't mean they all
do. My little brother is a dishwasher. He gets less than min but there isn't a damn thing he can do about them not sharing their tips.
Another thing.. Cash tips.. You waitresses scam on them. How much don't you claim for taxes? I know for a fact, the 4 different waitress jobs my
wife had did not watch over them to make sure their taxes were taken out of cash tips, only CC tips. So no one claimed them!
I don't know how many times I had to call a place up and ask why my CC was charged more than It should have when I picked up my own food and didn't
stay to be served. I watch my CC bills like a hawk but some retards don't think that we do... so watch your statements or pay with cash.
Bottom line... If you want a fair wage, go work at McDonalds! I will no longer tip anyone for a service that they should already provide. It comes
with the job!! If you want a real job, go get one. You don't always need a degree. There is no excuse on this planet that will prove to me that I
should tip you for ANY service. You're supposed to take care of your customer by default.
If you expect more... Open VIP booths in your establishment and offer footrubs or backrubs. Your service should already come with the price of your
If makes me SO mad that people just expect tips instead of work for them. It's not law. People just assume it's manditory and it's not.
