Just to further your point, many ppv events charge based upon how many seats the establishment has. I have heard of ufc fights costing bars $3500 to
show it, so the cover goes to cover that cost, and it most certainly isn't divided up among the serving staff.
Its hilarious how people who have never worked for tips think they have all the answers in the ultra competitive and low profit margin food and
That's the problem. You goto work at a job where you rely on tips alone. You shouldn't! People dine out to relax, talk and enjoy the atmosphere
of the place they are dining, while you're there trying to kick them out so you can pull someone else in for the sake of tips.
...and "low profit margin food" my ass. I can eat far cheaper at home cooking the same meal. When I buy that meal, I'm paying the establishment,
the cook and half of your wages. If you want a garanteed pay, then fight the companies to make them pay you a fair wage. I AM NOT obligated to pay
your hourly wage or give you anything in any way to assure that you get a fair pay. That is NOT what a tip is! A tip if for those that go ABOVE and
BEYOND. It's a reward for better than the service that you are ALREADY required to perform. Waiters and Waitresses act like the damned government -
always feeling it's intitled to my money. The only difference is.. I HAVE to pay them for crappy service.
Furthermore, you don't have to disturb a table 20 times. That tells the person at the table that you're trying to get rid of them. Leave them
alone! If they need you, just be within reach. Don't you know you're not supposed to disturb someone while they're talking? If a patron needs
you, he will make sure you see him.
Fill their glass, but shut the hell up. We don't want to stop mid sentence to talk to you then forget what the hell we were talking about in the
first place. If the glass is empty, or half empty, fill it up, but don't ask me... Just do it. Asking me 20 times if everthing is ok just pisses me
off. That's like having a chinese lady stand behind me while I'm getting food off the buffet for the first time, watching every damn thing I put in
When my glass is empty, since waiters are so good, why do I have to slurp the bottom of my glass with my straw if they're so great at what they do?
They'll hit me up when my glass is 3/4 full but when it's empty, I have to make a sound that the whole resturant hears just to get noticed.
I'm sorry.. I don't support tipping just because you want it or need it. If you need it... work at micky d's. If you want it... then go above and
beyond and don't expect it. It's not yours until you earn it. I don't give a bloody damn how little you make per hour. That's not my fault.
That fault lies on the establishment for being a crappy employeer and you for taking the job relying on something you haven't even done yet.
