tonights tips
    #4035625 - 04/09/05 11:32 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

alright, so I'm a waitress....tonights tips were particularly shocking:

1. a piece of string with a poptab attatched.

2. a note that reads: "if only the food was as great as the tits."

3. a booklet about jesus.

now which of those will pay my phone bill most effectively?

I used to fuck with waitresses all the time when I was a young punk. Then I met and married a woman who was a waitress for years. I learned about the job and I felt bad for all the years of grief I caused.

I am now the dream customer. And I tip big. 15% minimum unless they did something to deserve less. 20-25% is common for good service. I can and have gone much higher when the service is exceptional.

I always tip for a happy ending.


Oh, at a restaurant? Yea, at least 30%, thats cause I'm a waiter. When I go to TGIFridays type bars to drink I make sure I know the bartender. I can drink all night for 10$ and a 50$ tip, instead of a 80$ bartab.

I used to get all kinds of crazy tips like silver half dollars and wheathead pennies( this was at steak and shake where there was a good amount of old people coming in..), sometimes a napkin with a note, a phone number(once :naughty:), or other pertaining drawing.. As well as the more memorable tips like the Invisible ones :smirk:  I've waited at SnS and Macaroni Grill for a total of about a year. What kind of place do you work?
Maybe someday I will wait tables again as a side job..For now I mow lawns and landscape :sun:

15%, 30%?! wtf happened to 10%

You americans and your damn service charges.

I am not one for tipping unless I actually notice the service is good. Then again on average service is pretty shite round these parts so its not often I feel it needs tipping

You can use the string and pop tab as a magic pendulum. You can ask
it simple yes/no questions and it's usually right.

To calibrate: Hold the pendulum over your hand. Tell it "Show me
yes." and see which way it begins to swing (clockwise or counter
clockwise). Do the same for no.

Then ask your question and see if it answers!

I'm sure she will follow your sage counsel  :smirk: But on a happier note: It could have been worse Gil, some sick bastard(like me :grin:)could have left you a program from the woodbine race track and written:"Take Lucky Baron in the 7th" :grin:

15% is considered standard in America. Waitresses often get paid shit and rely on tips for income.

For example, my wife worked at a place where she got paid minimum wage. However, her income tax was calculated according to her food sales (she was taxed as if she made a certain percentage of tips on the amount of food she served). Because of this system her paycheck was often cancelled out with taxes....in other words, the taxes she paid was as much as the minimum wage she earned. Therefore, if she got no tips, she made no money!

Seems outrageous, but its true.
