: Wake up. Tipping is not optional. Most servers make
: little more than $2 per hour. That is way less than
: minimum wage. Servers rely on tips for their income.
: Also, many have to give the host and bartender a
: portion of their sales. If you do not tip or tip badly,
: these people are paying their tipshare out of their own
: pocket. They are actually losing money while at work
: because of people like you. Many people have different
: opinions on what constitutes bad service. I had a man get
: mad at me because I refilled his coffee cup eight times
: instead of nine. People need to realize that when they
: eat in a restaurant, their server has other tables besides
: you, and they cannot devote all their time to you.
: I admire places that add their own gratuity. This ensures
: that the servers will be guaranteed a tip. Many people even add
: on to the bill to tip 20-25%. When people say you are
: supposed to tip 15%, that is a minimum. Anyway, I've had
: about enough, so I'm leaving now.
I agree. Don't forget the 2.13 usually goes to taxes anyway.
