10% for moderate service, 15%-20% if it was attentive and/or excellent service. Some people don't like it but I always enjoy it when the waiter/waitress is ready with a refill right when or just before i finish my drink. But there is that magical amount of attentiveness, right before you become the annoying buzzing server who has interrupted your conversation five times to many in the last 15 minutes.

You’ll spit in my food if I don’t tip you? And I’ll shoot your kid if you don’t give me a million dollars. Seriously, am I even hearing this right? You’re actually using the threat of blackmail to make me pay you? Well as long as you’re openly claiming to be a criminal it’s all right I guess. Fortunately that’s why I prefer buffets. Listen apart from it being illegal, this shows your poor integrity. But if you spit in someone’s food because they didn’t give you money you didn’t earn, then you’re a loser and deserve to be a waiter for the rest of your life.

Please include the full cost in everyone’s bill thank you very much. I’ll pay it because I have to and the charge is there for me to see. What’s really funny here is that no one seems to criticize the employers! All criticism is reserved for non tipping customers instead of the owners of the restaurant for not paying a decent wage. Wtf! Could it possibly be because you guys know you can make much more by tips and under report your income to the IRS?

if they greet me. but not be fake with smalltalk and shit, they come back with my drink order and then take my food order. if they tell me of their specials, but not try and talk it up because i know that it is just something they need to get rid of and they will upcharge most likely. if they then come and check on my drink at least once before my food is brought to me. if they ask me if i need anything else before leaving. if they come back after 5 minutes to see how everything is. if they check in another 5 minutes if i need a drink refill. if they take my dishes away personally, not a busser. bussers are for lazy incompetent waiters who cant take care of their own shit. if they dont even ask if i want a desert menu, they just bring it to me as they clean my dinner plates away. if they bring me my desert and then ask if i would like the check when they come to remove the desert dish. if all that is met, more or less, i usually will tip 30-45% if i am strictly drinking at a bar, and the bill is under 15$, ill match the bill in tip. chances are if you tip a bartender well, you will get a hookup on return visits. the same applies to full service dining.

There are two excellent reasons to tip at least the standard 15%, if you are in a country where tips are standard: 1) Good waiters/bartenders in good establishments make much more than minimum wage in tips, so companies can still make a profit by paying them crap. If tips are not common there, intelligent and worthwhile workers will not wait tables/tend bars because they know that their personalities will land them a decent job in other industries. Which means that restaurants will either jack up their prices to better pay good staff (in which case we're working by the hour and not by the quality of our service, and there is less incentive to give excellent over just decent service), or staff hits around minimum wage and you get the same quality service you get from the people who settle for jobs at Walmart. B) If you are cheap, you can't ever get the best experience of being a regular anywhere because people know that their time is more profitably spent elsewhere, and because pissing off groups of people that deal with your food is bound to turn out badly at some point. The price of the food is for the food. The price of the tip is payment for good service. If you are too poor to pay for good service, why not just save your money and go to McDonald's?

Waiters: 15-20% depending on service Deliveries: $5-10 depending on order total Bartender: $5 on first drink, $1-3 every other drink depending on difficulty to make

To people who don't pay a decent percentage of their bill as a tip: You may not realize, but waiters are expected to pay a certain fraction of their tips to bar staff, hosts, etc. Many restaurants prevent waiters lying about their tips by taking a certain percentage of their sales as tipshare. This is usually 3-3.5% of what you sold. So, if your family orders $150 worth of crap and tips $5, I just lost money for the honor of serving you for an hour. On top of which, I also lost whatever money I would have made from that table if it had been open for someone who understood tip culture. Thanks for making me pay to put up with you, now go back to the ghetto so I can try to make rent.

>>426004462 >And this is my problem how exactly? this is your problem. waiters give good service because we know that our efforts directly effect our pay. you think employers are going to pay waiters well if people stop tipping? pay may go up from $3/hr to minimum wage, but how many awesome people do you know that can't get better than a minimum wage job? so your bill goes up to include the price of service (so you're paying the same amount as if you tipped) but now you get shitty service and you can't cut down how much you pay to an asshole server. great plan.

>>426007040 >Who's holding the gun to their heads to get into the restaurant business in the first place? Nobody. That's why, if there weren't decent tips, waiters who can give good quality service would go into other industries where they can make a decent living. Thus, the quality of service in fine dining goes down to Denny's level, and places like Denny's become self service, because there's only retards and ex-cons left to work there. If that level of service is fine with you, why waste your money on a full service restaurant? Go to McDonald's, save your money, and be happy. We won't complain about you not being with us. Or, if there is still a market for quality service restaurants without tips, restaurants will jack up their prices to pay decent servers. So, you'd still be paying the tip anyway, now you just don't have a choice about it if the service happens to be shitty that time. Why do you think tip culture gets started in the first place?

If you tip under your state's 'minimum tip claim' that waitresses have to claim as income in my state, our waitresses have to claim 15% of their income as tips, so if you're tipping less than that 15%, you are effectively stealing from them.

well im a server at an outback steakhouse. I get a 50% discount on food when i eat with a friend and the bill is usually around 25 bucks, which is cheap for steaks out outback. i would probably pay a total of 45 bucks to leave a 20 dollar tip. since the origional bill to eat there normally would be around 50 then including the tip, i just pay 45 and that includes a giant tip. I like to be nice cause when people are nice to me i make decent money. I ate at diner the other day with my friend and the bill was 19 bucks, and i left the server 8 or 9 bucks. by the way. I fucking hate when black people dont tip. there so damn needy. its not racist, its true. there are always some black people who are nice and tip well, but the majority is rude, needy, and does not leave a good tip at all. i also equally hate the white trash redneck bitches who come in and drink so much swet tea and eat so much god damn bread. and then they always leave like 5 bucks. they dont realise i have to tip out a potion of the meal to busers and bartenders and the hostess. so every 100 dollars of food i sell i have to tip 3 bucks out.

I have unwritten rules of tipping. I mostly eat at greasy spoons and such. When I do, I usually tip between 2 and 5 dollars depending on who else is with me. For instance, if I'm in a group of 3 and we all put down a couple bucks, I think that's fine... But I also have a personal meter I go by. If the service is noticeably poor, I don't tip more than 3. If it's good, I'll go up to 5. If it's not very good, a dollar or two. I'm constantly thinking about it while I visit.

>>426008770 Work in the restaurant industry long enough, and you begin to realize that the main difference between high quality dining and McDonald's is service and presentation. One business model pays the least it can for ingredients, but uses better marketing and beautiful presentation, along with quality staff, to be able to charge high prices to a low-moderate amount of customers. The other business model pays the least it can for ingredients, as well as the least it can to employees, to put it out as fast as possible so they can charge a small amount to a high volume of customers. They're just different ways of making a profit for shareholders. You take away the monetary incentive for people who are well trained to deal with food, people who are capable of great service, and what are you left with? McDonald's.

I tip the "regular" amount of 10-15% of a bill when I'm formally at a restaurant, eg on a date, but that's just for character, to make myself seem well-off. If the waiter does a bad job, or there are like 3 different waiters who have come by my table (like what happens in busy chain restaurants) then a tip would be absurd. But, there was one time, just one time, when I was out with friends at a denny's at 2am, and the waiter just seemed genuinely fuck-awesome, so we together tipped $100. Well, some of us were on E but we tipped the dude fat and now he totally chills with us when we come in super baked in the early AM.

>>426010805 again, if you tip less than the 'minimum tip claim' percentage, you are effectively stealing. if you don't know what your state's is, then you either have never worked in the industry and don't know what the fuck you're talking about or you just don't give a shit anyway, which makes me think you don't tip anything ever, no matter what

They pay us shit and we live on tips.. If that is a problem get another job.. Talking about stealing.. Pfft go take a flying fuck off a short pier.. If it was STEALING then it would be mandatory to TIP and it would be forced.. Ohh since it isnt.. That is right.. IT IS A BONUS.. If you dont like it leave the job..

It's not a problem - because 95% of people either are capable and willing to pay for service, or will save their money by going somewhere that doesn't offer great service. The remaining 5% get good service from me for free, out of pity, because you know that a person that stingy or ignorant is more likely to lead a life with bad service and personal problems because of their personality.

You can't just not pay an employee the legal minimum wage based off of superstitions that tips will make up for the rest. I work my ass off harder than anyone ever carrying dinner plates to tables ever will, and I don't get any extra fucking pay for a "good" job. Your job is your fucking job, if you're not always doing a good job then you can expect your lazy ass to be fired.

Like in many states I do not even get a pay check if my tips are high enough from claims nightly. people who don't tip i refuse to serve again and management is fine with it. If they want to be cheap I inform them there is a liquor store around the corner and they can serve themselves. Personal fav is when a guy orders a couple 12 dollar martinis for some girls and a 10 Manhattan or some such shit and leaves a dollar. I kindly hand it back to him informing him if he cant afford good service he probably needs the dollar more than I do. tl;dr people who dont tip simply dont understand what they are doing. ergo I dont serve them again or i tell them.

Negative reinforcement, instead of performance-based pay, is making real progress in the quality of service at those places, right?

In most states it is legal for employers to pay an amount below minimum wage as long as you can demonstrate that average tips will bring the pay up to at least minimum wage. Next time you have someone give you great service, just remember that his $2.50/hr, + the percentage of sales that he has to pay out as tips to the bar/hosts/whatever means that he actually spent money on you. But his job is his job, right? He should do it as well as possible, even if he has to pay for the honor of serving you.

You pay 10$ for a drink that costs the bar 2$ And that is including the power and band.. And you get tossed 1$ for deliver that drink that took you 1 minute to make that is in essence roughly 60$ an hour.. So your saying your worth more then that? Pffft and clearly your just a greedy mother fucker.. Learn to do your job and do it well and be happy when you get tips.. That is what they are a BONUS for doing your job.. If you dont like it change jobs.. McDonalds gives minimum wage and you don't have to worry. But your not working there why? Because tips pay you more..

Now with that said lets say that you need to spend 1 minute every other minute preping and doing cash outs.. Now talking can't be said becuase you you talk and do your job at the same time, unless your horrible at your job.. So now that said.. 30$ and hour for servering drinks..

>>426015269 >obviously walmart and mcdonalds dont have their supervisors bother to keep a high standard... >idiot stop connecting the dots wrong Mmhmm, because good management is capable of keeping a high standard of service to people they only pay minimum wage, right? People who can give great service can make a living in a number of industries that pay decently. If food service went down to minimum wage, it would be competing for the same pool of workers that can't do better than Walmart and McDonald's. What bar of quality do you think the management can set for Shaniqua and her ex-con baby daddy before they leave for an easier minimum wage job? What makes you think they are going to go above and beyond the average level expected of them if they are getting paid the same, regardless? Maybe learn to connect some dots, my friend.

>>426015747 >doesn't understand how a bar works... Here's the thing, let's say I'm at my bar make $40 per hour when I make 40 drinks an hour. Average bar has a number of jobs that need to be done at once, including barbacking, making drinks for servers who need them at tables, etc., meaning there are usually 3-4 bartenders working at once, all splitting tips. That means less than $15 an hour. Also, that's busy hours. There are a number of hours where I'm making much less than that, and spend my free time changing kegs, cleaning, etc (basically still working my ass off even if I'm making $5 an hour in tips). And then there is the hour before we open while I am prepping garnishes and setting up (and have no tips), or the hour-2 hours after close where I am cleaning (and have no tips). You find me a bartender who's making 60k a year.

Uh uh, I don’t tip. No, I don’t believe in it. I don’t tip because society says I have to. All right, I mean I’ll tip if someone really deserves a tipping, if they really put forth the effort, I’ll give them something extra, but I mean this tipping automatically, it’s for the birds. I mean as far as I’m concerned they’re just doing their job. They make minimum wage. I used to work minimum wage and when I did I wasn’t lucky enough to have a job that society deemed tip worthy. You know what this is? It’s the world’s smallest violin playing just for the waitresses. So if someone is working at McDonald’s you don’t feel the need to tip them do you? Well why not? They’re serving you food. But no, society says don’t tip these guys over here, but tip these guys over here. That’s bullshit. Fuck all that. I mean I’m very sorry the government taxes their tips. That’s fucked up. That ain’t my fault. I mean it would appear that waitresses are one of the many groups the government fucks in the ass on a regular basis. I mean show a piece of paper that says the government shouldn’t do that, I’ll sign it, put it to a vote, I’ll vote for it, but what I won’t do is play ball. And this non-college bullshit I got two words for that: learn to fucking type, ’cause if you’re expecting me to help out with the rent you’re in for a big fucking surprise.

There's not tipping culture in my country (eurofag here). I do tip taxi drivers, especially if it's some older guy which makes his living out of it.

>>426016480 >i never suggested minimum wage. but sure, pay ur workers more if u want better service.... employers liability then, as it fucking should be >nothing stopping the owner of a fancy place paying $15/hour for good workers....... Again, the point that has been made a dozen times in this thread: if employers paid $15/hr, that would be factored into the bill, and you'd still be paying for service... but you wouldn't have a choice if you got bad service. So, you pay the same, get good service, but nobody has a reason to go above and beyond for you. Not a huge change, but one that negatively impacts the customer more than the employee. >once again ur whole arguement falls flat on its face because it has no basis of logic then tell me where it has done so... >on the flipside, ur basically saying u get paid way more than u should for what u do and hate anyone that doesnt facilitate that via ur retarded system I obviously never said that. Your reading comprehension is about as good as your spelling.

You fuckfaces should consider 15% a baseline I think. >dependent on minimum wage where you dine >>that percentage gets taxed by busboys, kitchen, house and food runners (if necessary) >>>you have to eat in a place that is classy enough to justify that employage

>>426016480 umad bro? this is an issue to some cheap people. I hope your parents raise your allowance. I like to show my appriciation for people because its polite. I like to tip well not because I have to, but because I can, and it shows I am a generous human being, which I am. Shit dawg, I even give money to charities and shit.

I generally tip %15 and i hate it doing it but i do because i dont want to get bad service in the future or feel guilty. I hate the restaraunt industry and will only go to a place where tips are expected when someone else wants to. Tip culture is shit, i think peopke should be paid a livable wage and a tip should go back to being an actual tip. I dont get tipped at my job, no matter how hard i work. The cost of the food i buy doesnt effect the workload of my server, they take just as many steps delivering the $5 burger as the $20 steak.

>>426017734 you are thinking about it wrong bud, dont think about having to do it, think about doing it because you can. You sound like the type who would not tip a door man or a cab driver. if they do you a solid, give them money, if not, be a cheap ass. that simple. money is tight, they will understand you are broke.

>>426017734 There's a LOT more to consider than "They brought my plate of food." Were you in a fuckhuge party with 10 kids and 6 adults, all clusterfucking their orders and all talking making hearing them harder? Did you make this ridiculous specified order? Were you rude or friendly? Was the restaurant busy? Was your server swamped? Shit, sometimes you want to tip because the server just made you feel special for a minute. Then, after ALL this shit, your bill is X, so you tip 15%? There's a reason some servers don't seem to give a fuck, and it's because of shitty tippers who still demand to be treated like royalty.

Quick question from a naive Ausfag. When people from say Australia visit America, do you guys get pissed if we don't tip? or do you understand that we have no idea what to do?

>>426014952 >>426014965 >>426015002 this. We should make employer pay his employee not the customer. I tip 0, even when going with a full table of over 200 people i think like they should tip pay more after customer want money less.

Whether you like it it not, topping is a part of the American culture. By having tips, you motivate the waiters to go above and beyond the customers expectations on the service they expect in order to make above minimum wage. If they do a shit job, they see it in their tip and if they continue poor service, they get fired. If you have a set hourly wage, waiters have less incentive to give good service, at least in the USA. the only reason to not tip is if the food/service was unacceptably bad. That being said, I generally tip around 15%, 20% it more if it's great, and nothing if it was shit.

>>426014572 From my experience, restaurants are usually more expensive in Australia than in the USA. I did an exchange program outside of Sydney and the meals were generally 40-60% than I would have paid for the same meal in the states. That's why they can afford to pay their employees well and not require a tip. Also, just a general question. who else besides niggers give shitty tips?

TIP culture, lets switch gears for a minute ...Thoughts on tipping strippers and escorts? Me, I wont go into a strip club unless I can actually tip around 10-15$ for the girls on stage. Now, for lapdances...I give an extra $5, but really feel like I shouldnt. Anyone get away with tipping 0 for lapdances? Escorts, I havent done that yet..but I'm curious to see if anyone has dealt with upselling or 'asked for a tip' oh and amerifag here
