No, I wouldn't
On that note, know that if you are one of those people who leaves a tiny booklet of Revelations from the Bible as your tip, know that I hate you, to your core.
@Dark Passenger, Ow my feelings
@Dark Passenger, I always tell them I worship the dark lord.
@Dark Passenger, I was once given a key chain with the jesus fish on it as a tip. I'm a bartender for a casino.
@Chewy Shark, Ugh... have you ever gotten one of those cards that says, "I give God 15%, why should I give you 20?"
@Dark Passenger, oh I'd be pissed. The tipping system is not very efficient anyway. You could make 700 dollars one week and 200 the next. It's just too unstable.
@Smo Queed, Really you just have to work at a good location. Near a sports stadium at a sports bar usually yields great results during that sports team's season, and okay results during the off season. Money management is a huge part of it, but as long as you're careful you can make an easy living
@Dark Passenger, yeah, my mom is a waitress in a college town. Right now it's good, but winter and spring breaks just bring no business because the other demographic is the elderly who tip pretty well for what they get but they eat so little. And forget about July to mid August.
@Smo Queed, July to mid August is generally what you have to save up money for. Everyone has just bought their new classes and are broke. But after that, when basketball and football season start, it's pretty good
@Dark Passenger, please tell me that this is a strawman and people like this don't actually exist.
@Papyru, it's happened to me once and twice overall where I work, three times at a sister location
@Dark Passenger, that should be illegal
@Dark Passenger, thankfully no but my coworkers have
@Papyru, eh, it doesn't happen often enough for anyone to be afraid they won't pay their bills, but it ruins a few people's days.
@Dark Passenger, I'm a Christian and as such, I tip excessively. I've tipped more than my bill sometimes - including to grumpy waiters/waitresses.
Sowing and reaping, bible talks all about it.
@Dark Passenger, I'm a christian, but that is incredibly rude!
@Papyru, I have family and friends who are servers (it's tough but good money depending on where you are) and yes, people like this exist unfortunately. It happens about once ever Sunday when church lets out.
It doesn't help that statistic living in the godles-god-fearing-bible-belt.
Religious zealots are among the worst people on Earth, lowest of the low no matter the religion.
I don't hate religious people, don't get me wrong, I just hate these kinds of people.
@Dark Passenger, someone gave my brother for Halloween a pamphlet saying how he was a sinner and the only salvation was god. No candy, just a religious lecture.
I'd be mad.... Cat pics don't pay the bills
@WelI Obviously, then you are in the wrong business kiddo
@WelI Obviously, It does for StuckPixel.
@smeckledorfed, true lol
@WelI Obviously, yeah it's too bad restaurants get away paying below minimum wage
Hi server, I'm a client.
@Mhael, Hi client, I'm a lawyer
@Ajunta Pall, hi lawyer im a fellon
@Donutfilm, Hi felon, I'm dad
@Ajunta Pall, hi dad, I'm your son
@xdsmileedx, hi son, I'm a dog
@Nudity Industries, hi dog, I'm ball.
I'm gonna call BS on that, servers get livid unless you tip 30% at minimum and still throw a hissy fit because they think it's my job to pay their entire salary.
@Silver6456, well most of us generally only expect 18%, and are content with 15%... I'm not sure where you live where you're expected to give 30%, but you also don't have to eat there.
@Dark Passenger, it was intentional hyperbole, but I'm more sick of the issue that I'm told I could "just not eat there" when I just want to take a break from Raman or frozen food every other day but I'm expected to shell out an extra $3-5 when they did the bare minimum of "here's a water, what else do you want?"
@Silver6456, well once you're gone they can't really do much about it. Tipping is just an expected thing, but you don't have to tip well if you didn't get good service. Personally I don't tip based on my bill, I tip based on how polite the waiter was, if they put up with my bullcrap, and if they got my order right.
Hi son, I'm The Brothershine. Gotta say the while thing like A Pimp Named Slickback.
