Several of my family members have waited table, my daughter at uni still does now and then. They always got minimum wage plus pooled tips. If a tip is (to all intents) mandatory then it just gets to be a distraction from the dining experience. I want waiting staff to be polite and efficient, I don`t want them anxious or to be aware that they are trying to cajole a bigger tip. I just want to eat, pay and leave.

I mean, if the floor was exceptionally clean and the temperature just right should I leave a tip or the cleaners? Or the guy who maintains the heating system?

I tip, I`m used to tipping, but it does make me uncomfortable that someone is trying to get me to like them enough to give them more money. It`s demeaning.

Ironman vs. Batman is a much more fitting comparison. Both are rich, and have no innate super-powers, just above-average intelligence, and use inventions and machinery to fight injustice.

@datubaman: I understand how the system works, I`m merely pointing out how ludicrous it is to have a "minimum" wage, but let businesses pay less than that. Like I said, I`ve never heard of people being legally paid less than minimum wage here, but I can`t speak for every province. Some businesses pool tips here, but employees still make the minimum.

patchgrabber: In the US, most waitstaff work for below minimum wage...it`s usually something like 4-5 bucks an hour. They pad their income with their tips, and depending on the night it could go up to as much as 20 bucks an hour if they`re really good and have really good tippers. It also depends on which restaurant you`re working for as well. Some pay the mandatory state minimum wage, but the tips are pooled together and split up (at least at the place my friend works at).

I`m pretty sure that`s only a US thing. I could be wrong, but from what I know from where I live there is no such thing as "below minimum wage", that`s why it`s MINIMUM. Pizza delivery people, waiters/waitresses, bartenders, etc. they ALL make at least minimum, unless the place they work for is shady and pays under the table or lies about taxes.

Wish IAB had a like button so I could like highonhuffin`s attitude. And darkmagic14n, I was a waitress back in the day before I got a `real` job and what you say about women not tipping is a pile of crisp-fried balogna.

MechBFP: A job with pay less than minimum wage is better than no job at all. I can`t find a single place in Tucson that`s hiring. If a restaurant position opens up that`s a little money per hour plus tips, I`d apply in a heartbeat.

Also, in most of the world outside North America servers are actually surprised if you offer a tip and some even refuse to take it.

If you take a job were you are getting paid less than minimum wage, than you are a total drating moron for agreeing to it.

I always tip well (minimum %20). If the service sucks maybe %15 and I don`t go back. Delivery guys always get at least $5. I figure if I`m too lazy to pick it up myself then I should tip well.

On a side note, I`ve had completely non-productive days at the office and, a time or two, didn`t provide the expected service (and didn`t give a poo). I assume that most people on IAB can relate to this. I never received less pay because of this. We all have our days - why so critical of wait staff when it happens to them?

@Batmanners, it seems like you`ve never waited tables before. First of all, servers don`t work for minimum wage. They work for much less than that, usually around 2 bucks an hour. Then add tips on top of that. Also, their work day is much longer and work intensive than simply taking orders and bringing it out.

Tipping based on service is fine. Not tipping because you don`t understand the job is not.

I`m a delivery driver, and tips are what you survive off from.
Hourly alone for tipped employees is WAY lower than standard minimum wage.
The tips, makes it about even with minimum wage.

Those who work in customer service should do their job right to get paid at all. If you don`t know how to work with people than you shouldn`t be doing it.

But I work as hard as any burger flipper and I deserve to get paid for the work I do.

And yeah you play games to get bigger tips.

I wear silly hats in the winter, it totally helps.

I expect excellent service in exchange for a tip. I realize a waitress works minimum wage +tips. But if the lady wants a tip, then I expect her to do more than just her job. Minimum effort = minimum wage.

Being a waitress in no way entitles her to an automatic tip.

I usually don`t return to places where I`ve received bad service, but of course, chain restaurants like East Side Mario`s, it`s a matter of luck if you get good service or not, depending on who`s working.

And as for smaller places, like convenience stores, unique coffee shops, haircutters; I don`t tip unless the debit machine asks and if the service was worthy of a tip (especially if I don`t want her to cut me next time I get her to shave my neck with a straight razor.)
