Fun fact, being a good server results in very little increase in average tips, if any at all. People tend to round up to the nearest $5/10, or pay 15%
@Duncan5769, I read that most people walk into a restaurant already knowing what they will tip and that service has very little to do with it. I am guilty of this in a good way kinda. I always tip well, even if the service is shjt. I used to be a server so I just give the benefit of doubt and assume they just had a bad table.
@Duncan5769, true for the most part, but being an exceptionally bad server should result in under tipping.
@Duncan5769, I always go in with the assumption of tipping 20% with a Max of $30. If getting drinks I'll go to 25% with a minimum of $20. The only exception is if it felt like I was serving myself.
@Duncan5769, I used to work for tips maybe that made me more generous but I usually tip like 20-30% if a bill came to like $54 some would think $60 is a good tip I’d be embarrassed to leave that
@mazemarble, the only time I don’t tip is when I go to a buffet it’s actually funny seeing the ppl at the Chinese buffet getting mad for not tipping first of all the actually have the balls to come up to the table and ask for a tip idc where you’re from u just don’t do that and secondly literally the only thing u did was “seat us” and by that I mean u basically walked next to us while we found our own table and on top of that we got our own food a drinks so y am I tipping u
@Duncan5769, fun fact: completely false. I average 50% more tips than my coworkers and they have no idea why. It’s because I actually care and get tipped better.
@Child Slapper, I will trust the studies over one personal experience, but I am glad you are experiencing thatz because it's rare. My mom's been a waitress for 30 years and has rarely seen a dent
@Duncan5769, for example, I once did a pizza delivery job. I was the only one at my shop that used a clipboard for signing receipts. Customers gave me extra money every time they were impressed with that. I memorized people and had conversations. One guy tipped me $5, then we talked for a few minutes, and as I went to pull away, he ran out and handed me another $20. It’s called going above and beyond, and there are people like me all over the place. Check out Dave Ramsey; he teaches people the same thing. Your mom is probably nice, but she’s not ‘extra tip’ nice. My wife and I tip 20% for good service. 15% for average. Less then 10% for bad. 25% for great. And over 30% for above and beyond. Others do this, too. Those ‘studies’ you mention are either crap, or only study the jerks.
(For my own curiosity: are you and an urban or rural area?)
Imagine waking up in the middle of the night and seeing that standing over u... good luck sleeping tonight you’re welcome
