Speaking of tipping...

Recommended Posts

If all patrons tipped on merit the current system would be fine. Unfortunately, there are a lot of cheap skates out there that are looking to get a service without due compensation, at the expense of those who can least afford it, the server. Some of the best service I've ever encountered is in countries that require servers to be paid a living wage by their employers. Tips were not expected, but if given, amounted to spare change. In those countries, where being a server is considered a proper profession, I have even had servers ask for smaller tips than what I had initially provided, as they were considered too generous.

^^^^I wonder why you're too much of a pussy all the sudden to say what you mean...?

Why are you evading the question?

Do you choose to be a bad tipper when you eat at Applebee's? Red Lobster?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loaded_question

"A loaded question is a question which contains a controversial or unjustified assumption ( e.g., a presumption of guilt)."- i.e. a fallacy

"the askers of said questions have learned to get around this tactic by accusing the one who answers of dodging the question."- what you just did

Ironically you have been dodging my valid question this entire time. I mean of course you're message is clear and you're a racist but you have trouble just coming out and saying it.

Most likely just to strongly imply racism and when accused shout "OH THERE YOU GO AGAIN PLAYIN THE RACE CARD OMG SO TYPICAL."

I bartend in one of the biggest hotel/conference centers on the eastern seaboard, and almost without fail the worst tippers and biggest complainers come from the big religious groups that come through. it's utterly mind-boggling. two years ago a lady in a baptist conference popped into a bar and told the bartender she was in the slippery slope to hell, and then later a woman stiffed the waitress and then asked to pray for her because she looked stressed.

truly incredible

I only did about 6 months as a server. If it takes you a year to learn what it's like to be in that position then you will likely spend more than a year at it.
