Whoever asked "why give jordan a free meal?"... Probably because he gives your restaurant recognition just by him showing up. Word of mouth that Jordan eats there = free advertisement. Also if you hook him up there's a chance he rents out the joint for a private party for lots of $$$.

Ummmm, don't you stereotype every time you spout off about capitalist swine, and stupid gun toting Republicans?


Stop being so angry and open your eyes, there is a real world out there.

You want to know what....I often gave up my Sunday shifts because of the types of folks that came into my restaurant......you know, after church white folks that were needy and tip poorly. Not to mention the average table cost was lower than every other day of the week.

More work and less tips = No fuzz

I have watched Michael Jordan shaft a restaurant not just for a tip, but also for the entire meal and drinks.....and have also seen Steve Buschemi do the same.


hey thanks for quoting my post and not actually responding to any part of it. i think i'll do the same

well except for this

More work and less tips = No fuzz


huh interesting i came into this thread routinely tipping 15-20% but after reading this i'll probably never tip again

still don't see how this system is good for anyone but employers

it clearly results in stereotyping and poor service for some
it causes significant uncertainty of take-home pay on a weekly basis
it places the onus on the customer to directly pay the server a living wage (particularly in NC)

someone mentioned earlier that you're taxed on the assumption that you've been tipped at like an 8% rate, and you're definitely taxed at the minimum wage as it's illegal for a person to take home less than that.

what? I don't think that's true.


what does "taxed at the minimum wage" even mean?

you're taxed as if you make minimum wage regardless because if you're employed, you make at least the minimum. at least that was my assumption. again if i'm wrong feel free to correct me. if you're not guaranteed minimum wage, that would only strengthen my arguments against tipped positions

you're guaranteed minimum... but you almost always make more than that... my confusion was your catagorization of "minimum wage" as a tax bracket. You're taxed on income just like everyone else... most people who work for tips don't claim cash tips as income... therefor they are not taxed on that money, additionally, because it looks like they make so little on the books, they exist in a lower tax bracket than they often would otherwise... One of the reasons that tip jobs CAN be very good.
