re: Is tipping primarily a learned behavior?


It's what they choose.

I choose to tip 100-150% on 2 beers at the bar because I want them to remember me when I come back.

Now, short story from Ham.

About 3 years ago a few of us were going to walkons. I was the only one 21 and I knew one of the bartenders well. Walked up to her and asked if she could take care of my 3 friends. Of course she says yes. We each have 6-8 beers and a couple shots then all close our tabs. I was broke at that time in my life and left 20-25%. As did my other friends, except one. My friend (the bartender) comes to me and says "tell your friend to go frick himself with his 50 cent tip on a 30$ ticket."

We all gave him shite and he said "her job is a joke, she doesn't need to be tipped much."

After we kept giving him shite he changed his story to "I knew y'all were all tipping good, so I didn't think I needed to."

Ever since that time me and said friend speak once or twice a year. Pissed me off.

Moral of the story, some people just fricking suck at tipping and it will never change.

i would have rather received nothing. 50 cents is more of an insult imo

Your ex-friend is a dick of the highest order. He doesn't tip for his share of the bill as everyone else did. To add to his insult to your friend, he says that she and her job are not to be respected as it is a job beneath him. I would never respond to a phone call from him.
