people should tip for the regular price, not the discounted price. Auto-grat is the right call.


I'm sorry but get the frick out with this entitled bull shite attitude. The bitch should not have auto grat'ed herself 40% of a bill. There is no such thing as a guaranteed tip. You don't like it, get a job that pays a normal wage. Jesus what a fricking stupid attitude you have. Where are you a server at?

COP OUT.

FWIW, I don't think you should have to tip on the full price of a happy hour special or whatever.

But that statement you just made is a cop out and I hate it. Being a server isn't any less of a job than anything else and if everyone got a "normal" job, you'd be making your own food every night.

No it's not when dealing with an attitude such as Drac's. There is no situation where automatically adding 40% as a tip to a check can be condoned, but that's basically what he said.

This is just as big of a cop out as anything I said. And all this bitch did was bring me the drink. She didn't make them, so why should she get 40%?

She tips out the person who did make it. That being said, 40% gratuity is out of line. I am sure that they do not have that posted anywhere.

Tabs at bars are always a bad idea. I pay cash per drink and tip per round. Take today for example. Got to Finn's a little late at 7:00am. Had 8 Brooklyn Brown Ale pints at 4.25 per pint. I tipped a total of 15.00. I always get great service and know the bartender.

the main reason i tip so much is because if i find a place i really like or a server i really like... i become a regular. i enjoy being taken care of as a patron. so i will always take care of my server... because a. it's the right thing to do and b. i know the service i receive will be top notch.

What is? Calling you out for being an elitist is a cop out? No. The proof is in your writing. MOST everyone in the thread agreed she shouldn't have done what she did to you. That is not the argument. The reason this thread is still going and the reason you sound disgusting to me is because you're mixing statements like this:

quote:

.. into an otherwise logical argument that you have. It's like you can't decide which side you're on.

"Well, I'm a good tipper but that being said, those lazy piece of shite whores don't deserve it!!!11"

You're making the fact that you might, in fact, be a nice customer and good tipper completely unbelievable. Shame, since I think what happened to you was messed up.

Why else would she do it then scowl at us when we called her out?



There are frick tons of possible reasons. Some of which you won't guess because you don't know their perspective.

The first one is simply the fact that you intended to tip less than 40% thus "costing" her money on the special. If you didn't mind tipping the 40%, you wouldnt have asked it to be removed and just not tipped any more on top of it.


quote:

Don't be stupid.


Exactly my point. Don't be stupid. Think about that shite before throwing out an accusation. Just because it's the first thing that comes to mind doesn't mean that it's the ONLY possible explaination.

Sure, she might have been hoping that. But that "scowl" could have just as easily had other meanings....

Annnnd again with the assumptions.

How do you know if those tips goes directly and solely to her, and isn't part of a tip sharing policy the resturant has among all of the service members.

re: Watch out for waitresses adding auto gratuity if you've been drinking...


I was reading something the other day about the service industry and someone said they went to a restaurant and had a girl that really just acted like she didn't want to be there. She had a slight attitude and while she did everything correctly, she wasn't excited about it at all. He said that they could have easily left a shitty tip, but instead they gave her a very large tip and wrote a note on the receipt that said, "Sorry you're having such a bad day. Hope everything gets better". He said he stuck around and saw her read the receipt, which made her sit in a booth and start crying with gratitude. I'm not by any means saying we should just tip people with poor attitudes.. but I thought it was nice that this guy took the time to think about the fact that she's a person that could be going through anything. You never know what a person is going though.

I may be a shallow person, because I judge people by the way they treat waiters/waitresses and other service people.

When they took the job, they knew they were taking the risk of not having a guaranteed income. When I got into sales after college where I was commission, I knew the risk as well.

To me, the price of the food includes making it and bringing it to me. Do I tip? Sure, when I feel the service was worth it. Do I feel obligated to do it? frick no. If the server doesn't like it, then tough shite.

A lot of women would never go on another date with someone who doesn't tip. Hope you have a cheapo woman already.

Me too. 100%. You're rude to service people, I'm rude to you. I'd kick someone in the balls over it. And I've never kicked anyone there lol

Where you live there are people called professional waiters, same as where I live. They make a helluva a living because they are great at their jobs. Just like a doctor, attorney or salesman.

I'm nice to them just like I am to any other working stiff out there, I just don't feel obligated to give them a tip.
