WWTFBD-Spinoff TippingThread



Read each scenario and choose the answer that best describes what you would do based on the information provided.


Scenario #1
At the city’s best known burger joint, you wait in a short line to place your order at the counter. There is a large pickle jar near the register that reads, “Tips.” Your credit card receipt has a tip line above the total line. You place your order, and are handed a number and an empty drinking cup. You wait in the dining room for your number to be called. The food arrives. It is cooked to order. Everything is amazing. There is an older lady wiping tables with the same bar towel who keeps asking if everything is, “ahwl-raight.” You…
A. Drop a few bills in the tip jar.
B. Round of your credit card total to the nearest dollar.
C. Leave a 15-20% tip via one on the above methods.
D. Leave the old lady a couple bucks.
E. None of the above.

Scenario #2
Sabano’s is the hottest eyetalian steakhouse in the region. You made your reservations over a month ago. You and your party arrive 10 minutes early. You are promptly seated and handed a beverage menu/wine list. Your server arrives and introduces himself as William. William asks if he can explain the specials, as the chef has made some wine suggestions to accompany them. He is very knowledgeable about the menu, and answers all of your party’s questions flawlessly. Drinks and appetizers are ordered. Everything arrives timely and correct. William takes the entrée orders and refills drinks. When the entrées arrive, the baked flounder filet seems to be covered in paprika and dried parsley. It is so heavily garnished that small clumps of paprika are found throughout the plate. You mention it to William; he is apologetic and removes it from the table. Some 8-10 minutes later, William returns with a new filet with only a fresh lemon and parsley as garnish. Dessert, coffee, and so on. You are handed the folder with your bill and William informs you that your entrée has been removed from the bill for the kitchen error. Your bill is $80. The flounder would have added an extra $30. You…
A. Tip $20 and make it an even Benjamin.
B. Tip $16, because that is 20% of $80.
C. Tip less than 20% for the inconvenience of the error.
D. Drop two extra $20’s cash in there and tell William thanks.
E. None of the above.

Scenario #3
Its Friday bitches! You and the boys are at Lift and Separate Bar and Grill. Your server, April has the biggest, roundest blue eyes you have seen. You order a Miller Lite, she brings you a Bud Light. No big deal. You order some wings “naked.” She brings you wings breaded. Half-way through the Chernobyl wing platter, you run out of beer. April is busy singing Happy Birthday to a nine-year old boy at table 3. You eat 2 more wings trying to get April’s attention. She is flirting with some frat guys with “popped” collars and sunglasses. Finally, she arrives and brings you another beer. She delivers the beer and your invoice at the same time. This time she hangs around and asks, “Where are you guys from, I never saw you in here before?” She pours it on, “was everything okay? Are you guys going out tonight? When I get out of here, I am going to Hotspot with my roommate. I hate working Fridays.” Your bill is $28. April is still at the table. You…
A. Tip 20%.
B. Tip 15%.
C. Tip $20.
D. 2 beers, 2 bucks.
E. None of the above.

I was bored. This place has been a little too serious lately. Big food holiday coming up. This place should be buzzing with good stuff.

I like you and all, but I can read a post that long on a Friday night. Cliff notes?

Just having fun with the tipping topic. It's been a couple weeks without one. Enjoy your Evening GG. I just had my first adult beverage.

1-A. People in those restaurants at least make minimum wage.
2-Tip 20ish% on what the original bill would have been. The waiter gets the tip not the kitchen. He did nothing wrong.
3-Tip 15% then round up to the next dollar.
