I only tip my friends.
Why would I tip someone who is serving my food or doing something that they get paid for in the first place?
Now, dont even bother telling me they only get paid minimum wages.... HELLO! Your a waiter/waitress.... of course your getting minimum wages. Wake up
out of your imaginary world and relise that it takes no skill to serve people food..... Slaves did it for free for ages.
The sooner people relise that tipping is stupid, the sooner I can stop tipping my friends.
Why do I not tip?
I went to school for 3 years, spent 23,000$ on an education in advance. I now work as a draftsman.... Do I get tips when I finish prints for someones
house early, in time for their contractor to finish before the winter? ect, ect..... Hell NO!
When I get tips, Ill start tipping the lazy buggers that wont get a job that takes skill. Till then, like I said, only my friends get tips.....and
only 10% at that.
Im still wondering how the government still allows tips, I mean... If I get taxed, why they hell is the service industry wages not taxed?
Sorry, I just dont agree with this tipping crap.
What makes it harder for me, is I have a lot of friends.... being lazy, not going back to school, wasteing the summers away partying... and working a
waitress/waiter job. then they bitch about the money being so bad, and the tips from ass holes like me..... I keep telling them, its their choice....
but once again, that "lower classness" just comes out every September and once again they are making another trip around the sun as a
waiter/waitress wondering why the world left them behind....
Its sad really for those people.... and so many people.
Though, I have used high tips to get into this one chicks pants... so, maybe there is some good out of it.
