    What an ass. I think every snobby business man should work for a month or two as a server or cashier. Maybe then they`ll be a little more polite to the people who make his cushy life possible.

    @Skullgrin: Actually, if your job customarily gives tips, it`s legal for your employer to pay you below minimum wage. At least, it is in Arizona. It the waiter`s responsibility to be nice enough to the customers to earn enough money to survive. The extra incentive to be nice makes it more likely for customers to return.

    i`d gladly pay an extra 15% on menu items so that servers can be correctly paid minimum wage for their "service". i have friends who are servers and am partly disgusted in how much they can bring home in a 5 hour shift.

    Ok a real job.
    I bet this guy would be thrilled to go and get his own food from the chef, maybe being a chef isn`t a real job according to this guy. So he`d have to heat his own nourishment. Maybe a farmer isn`t a real job so he`d have to grow his own food, that lazy corn is idling so the best solution would be for this guy to blow his brains out in a field to become fertilizer for corn that later gets served to an non-nice individual telling the waiter to get a real job.

    Tipping is for the Birds: Reservoir Dogs

    Steve Buschemi aside, everybody should have to work a crappy service industry job for a couple of years so they learn to be polite to the people who are slugging it out every day for garbage pay.

    That being said, if you`ve worked customer service, you learn to accept garbage like this and move on with your day. If you let little stuff like this get to you, you become a very, very bitter person. Voice of XP speaking here.

    Doctor`s are also very poor tippers. I`ve had multiple deliveries to this one specialized doctor`s office where each time I had so much food that needed delivered that I had to make multiple trips to my car and go up two stories and get receipts similar to the one shown with $100+ bill with tips of no more than $2 plus change... Yay run-on sentences.

    Then I`ve gone to trailer parks where I`ve received 50% tips; granted the bill was only about $15, but thats still more than the doctor`s office.

    The richer you are the more stingy you are... most of the time.

    In my country there`s no such thing as a tip. If I ever go to the US I guess I`m going to be seen as an non-nice individual because I have no concept of tipping people who are just doing the job that they are paid to do? What a strange system

    Lemee explain how this works, for some people who just don`t seem to understand.

    Our food-service industry works on a principle that pays it`s food servers lower than minumum wage. The idea here is to save the resteraunt a bit of money, make prices a bit cheaper for customers, and incentivice servers to actually do a good job.

    Customers who dine out should be tipping their servers somewhere between 15-18% as normal. A bit more if they provided really good service, a bit less if they didn`t...but they all deserve something.

    Yes, this means that eating out in fancy, costly places results in larger gratuity for servers than eating out at Denny`s...generally the quality of service should reflect that.

    Is this silly? Yeah, a bit. People shouldn`t have to rely on tips for wages, but that`s the way the system works and until it changes either play along or don`t eat out at resteraunts with servers ya jackasses.

    Again, how is it NOT a real job? To me a job that isn`t real is the kind of crap where you sign papers and play with meaningless numbers. The less work you have to do and the less important it is to society the less your job is remarkable. A real job actually involves work, authority is meaningless.

    My thoughts on this, is if the service was bad, then she deserved it, if it wasn`t, then he is an a-hole. Second, it sounds like many on here have said or are elluding to the idea that servers deserve a tip. Wrong. If your service was only worth 2.13 an hour, then that`s what you should get. A tip is not required. I understand that waiters rely on them, but if you don`t provide good service, then you shouldn`t get good tips, and you should got get another job where your pay is not reliant on your horrible service.

    If you follow the original story this was not posted by the waitress or resteraunt, it was posted by a blogger who claims this was his boss...a high-level exex for a major bank who is a rabid anti-99%er and does this all the time.

    Blog is no longer up, HuffPost has contacted the restaraunt and verified that this waitress does work there...but so far that`s all that`s verified as fact.

    All in all, seems like a hoax to me.

    Ah, the 1% `tip`!
    Waiting table IS a real job, jerk! If the service was bad then take it up with the management.

    Completely off topic: I was at a resteraunt where the food was both slow and bad. I complained to the waitress, who told me that HALF the kitchen staff had quit because the managers were idiots. She removed the crappy food from our bill. SHE got a huge tip! 5 weeks later, the resteraunt closed.

    It`s fake. Probably some idiot "99%er" who really doesn`t have a job, trying to prove some already overdone, tired political point that they don`t fully understand. Because we all carry 10 megapixel cameras around and take beautifully set up photographs when we`re trying to sneakily take a cell phone snap of someone`s receipt, right?

    All I have to say is that if these people don`t deserve a tip and their job is so unimportant to some of you then why don`t you get your own damned food next time? Or go park your own car and then being it back up front etc. These ARE real jobs and for some reason so many people seem to think these jobs are easy or unnecessary or whatever. The people who have to work those jobs have to put up with an attitude that they are below everyone else and that is what is truly unnecessary. These types or jobs are also some of the worst ones you can work. I just have to wonder when it became acceptable to treat a hard working individual the way most people like to treat those in this position.

    if you can`t get your own food, pay the waiter the 10-15% they deserve (bringing their pay to minimum wage), you pay the idiots at mcdonalds minimum wage to bring you lower quality food.

    Like most things on the internet I assume everything is fake until proven otherwise.

    I`ve left zero tip a couple times in my life when faced with rude insulting servers. A tip is what you get when you do your job, if you fail you get no tip (or at least a smaller one). For average service I tip 20%, but I`ll gladly stiff someone who directly has a negative impact on my experience.

    the lowest i`ll tip is 12%, although i can`t remember the last time I had to go below 15. If i think the waiter deserves less that 12%, then i`ll speak to the manager.

    People who leave less than 10% tip as a punishment are really being cowards or cheapskates (At least in the US).

    Whether this is true or a hoax, $134 lunch ticket took some work.

    5 business men go to lunch (lets assume 5, because 6 can incur the auto 18% tip in some places); they split an appetizer (or 2) - $2-4/plate - an alcoholic drink - $10/plate - and order something normal - $12-15/plate. thats $24-29/plate. 5*$25 = $125 * 1.0775 ~ $135

    2 questions:

    how do you know it`s from a banker?
    What if the service sucked?

    If the service sucked I wouldn`t have tipped anything, of course.

    I suspect this post is meant purely to enrage. Between the banker and the waiter, the waiter has the real job. The banker doesn`t produce anything, whereas the waiter is fulfilling a need.

    The funny thing is, if this poor tipper was expected to get up, walk to the kitchen of the restaurant and get his own food, he would probably walk out of the place.
    People need other people to work as waiter`s/waitress` and cooks, otherwise...God forbid, these stuck up snooty people would have to cook their own food.

    Perhaps it should be, and no, you`re not expected to tip at McDonalds or whatever restaurant you frequent, but someday, you might get to eat at a sit down restaurant. Maybe even a nice one. Trust me..you`ll learn to tip.

    1% on a $134 tab ? That`s so insulting that it`d almost been better if they hadn`t `tipped` at all.

    Tax purposes. The more you pay an employee, the more you pay in taxes. Sad but true.

    Oh, and I find it funny that all of the information is blocked out, but if you go onto the website, there`s only 1 restaurant operating in Newport Beach, CA. Gee, I wonder where this is from.

    If they`re serving food to you, then yes, I`ll agree that they`re feeding the bottom of society.

    does not surprise me at all that this happened in Newport Beach. Before becoming a MFT, I owned a service related business that served Newport pretty often and the people there are your typical, closed minded, mostly racist aholes that look down on everyone else.

    someday, you might get to eat at a sit down restaurant. Maybe even a nice one. Trust me..you`ll learn to tip.


    Nope. I don`t get tipped for doing a good job. A lot of people don`t get tipped for doing a good job or even an exceptional job. Why would I tip someone who is bringing my food? Is it that hard to properly take an order and bring it to a table? No it isn`t. If I had the option to get the food myself I would. I`d prefer it actually. When you tip a server you are only promoting the problem. Restaurant owners will continue to pocket the restaurants profits, you will continue to spend more money than you would have normally, and the servers will continue to be stressed out wondering if they will or will not get a tip. Get rid of tipping and you not only put more money in servers pockets but more in your own as well. The only one losing money is the rich store owner who is used to making YOU pay his employees.

    Not everyone can have a high paying job like him, because then there would be no one in necessary jobs like being a waitress or a janitor. Waitresses are just as important as bankers, and if everyone had a high paying job like him, then everyone would have tons of money, causing inflation, and no one would be rich at all. So yeah, tip your goddamn waitress, or become a socialist.

    Someone please explain to me (I`m a Brit) what the 99% reference was. I thought you`re meant to tip 15-20%?

    That said, I don`t get the tipping culture either. Why is it you`re supposed to tip the bellboy, taxi driver, hairdresser and waiter, but not the Walmart check out guy, your dentist, the car showroom sales guy or the girl selling you a big mac with fries?

    @skullgrin

    You`re an non-nice individual and here`s why: When you go to a restaurant, you pay for the food and service separately. If the service was good, you pay an amount you believe sufficient, and the same goes for bad service. This way prices on menus can (generally) be lower because the restaurant doesn`t have to charge more for the food, and that good service is rewarded and bad service is punished. So when you say, "I`m not tipping because I don`t get a tip, also I wasn`t hugged as a child," you`re essentially not paying for the service provided by your waiter.

    OK. for one tipping is like an extended thank you. an expression of appreciation for someone who is getting paid very little to do a personal service. you would tip a waitress, bellboy, cab driver because they for 1. dont get paid much and 2. they`re basically playing the role of your slave for a time so you don`t have to do something you could do yourself. the hairdresser i would say is a way of saying thank you for giving me something presentable in public and please remember me as generous in the future so you don`t give me a horrible cut.

    I wouldn`t tip the wal-mart checkout guy because they don`t give a poo about you and are certainly not going to go out of their way to help you. I wouldn`t tip a dentist because they already get paid a fortune. i wouldn`t tip a car salesman to try to rip me off(we all know they do). and i would tip a fastfood server if the service is exceptional and i visit often. but yeah. that`s about it. not sure about the 99 thing either though.

    What you fail to understand is that without tipping, restaurant owners would be forced to pay their employees a higher base wage to prevent them from quitting, and in turn the restaurants will be forced to raise their prices to avoid going bankrupt. It also means that employees will get paid the same whether they give great service or terrible. That would be VERY bad for the customer.

    Tipping means a more stressful job for waitresses and a better experience for customers. Eliminate it and it the tables will be turned.

    Skullgrin is correct and I`m glad he understands that the societal culture of tipping results in lower menu prices than we would have without tipping. In fact, I would argue that the suppression of menu prices exceeds the actual tip. For example, if the average tip is 15%, then our menu prices might actually be 30% or 40% lower than a parallel universe where all other things are equal except nobody ever tips. This is because the culture of tipping puts more pressure on waitresses to do a good job so that they can maximize their pay. Without this incentive, waitresses wouldn`t be nearly as productive, and the shortfall in productivity would pretty much have to come from customers` pockets.

    Here in "communist" europe, waiters/waitresses get a normal pay from the restaurant and the customer may, if he wants to, give a tip (usually some 5-10%). The waiters have a decent living (well, they are not the highest paid workers), the customers give a tip if they want to. Honestly, i don`t remember a waiter having been unfriendly or unprofessional to me in the last thirty years.

    I work 40 hours a week as a server and my paychecks only come out to $60 dollars a week. So to say that tips are little bonuses is B.S., the government assumes we make 15% of our sales and then takes that out of my pay check.

    Second, I don`t feel bad for this girl. I get $0 tips on $100 dollar checks all of the time and it is not because of service. It`s just how ghetto black people tip. And it isn`t "too" bad of a restaurant let`s just say it starts with P.F.. Tip if you go out and if you can`t afford to tip then why the hell did you go out to eat in the first place? Spend your welfare checks somewhere else. I need to get out of L.A. this place sucks.

    The only reason this guy gives 1% tips is because he`s too stupid to calculate any other amount.

    50.45 : 0.50
    1023.59 : 10.23

    etc... All he can do with his puny 1% mind is move a decimal around, just like the skill they have in life is moving fake credit around.

    The reason a European dinner will take two hours is because of the fact that Rognons de veau take more time to prepare than a chili hotdog and a hotpocket for dessert.

    What bothers me the most is the fact that, when i have dinner in an American restaurant, the Americans are the ones who treat the waiters as slaves and dare to return a half eaten steak or an almost empty bottle of wine to the kitchen and refuse to pay for it leaving the waiter in a bad position.

    The fact that Europeans are preceived as bad tippers is the fact that we actually pay our waiters a decent standard wage and show gratitude for service by paying a small percentage (5%) on top of the bill.
    Because of this system Europeans aren`t aware that it`s normal to tip three to four times that amount when going to America.

    I hate giving tips. Why should you get paid extra just to do your job? You`re already getting minimum wage, and you don`t tip workers who also get minimum wage at the grocery store, or at fast food places. That`s great that you can haul in a good chunk of cash off of tips every night, but it could be worse. You could be working at Burger King..

As for your "facts" one of the worst snobs I delt with was a frenchman who complained that glass wasn`t good enough for the overpriced wine he ordered and he wanted a crystal glass. That and general assholier than thouness.

    I always tip 2 to 3 bucks.

    That`s not a percentage you must be a high roller at golden corral!!

    That wasn`t Johanvb he`s a Eurotwat and therby can`t afford to tip. You use a percentage because it`s what`s considered to be polite if you dislike that don`t go to a resturant for service especially a more expensive one. A more expensive esablishment is expected to have higher quality waitstaff, menu and service standards therby a higher tip amount. Also that not pulp fiction it`s reservoir dogs. I wouldn`t go to Japan and leave my shoes on wiping them all over the home owners flooring so why do you feel you shouldn`t have to tip. LEAVE A TIP YA CHEAP F**KS!

    The British Monarchy provides a net profit to the UK coffers by virtue of all the tourism it generates.

    If and when that changes, you`ll have an argument. Until then, you`re arguing for us to choose a financial LOSS over the current financial GAIN, which wouldn`t make a great deal of sense.

    ROFL!!! according to who now the monarchy?? I`d say it`s the buildings more than your puppet masters people from other countries want to see cause they can`t see the royals anyway.

    @McGovern1981 Lapdance is a product you buy. You can go to a strip club and not tip ya know. And you tipping doesn`t tell us anything about you other than you have money to give away or you liked the service. Why don`t you tip all of us for having to read your dribble? I think we deserve it.

    Interesting how this discussion shows the differences between US and europe, with entrepreneurship and dishwasher to millionaire and hate on any social security on one side and social behavior on the other side.
    Probably, the 1% are better off in US, but imho the 99% are better off in europe.

    I`m sometimes wondering: the grand...grand-parents of most actual americans were europeans. Which type of europeans migrated to the US?

    Please feed me.

    "That wasn`t Johanvb he`s a Eurotwat and therby can`t afford to tip."

    :) You know it best i guess.
    But, true story, my wife and i where once refused to pay a tip because the waitress (Deans restaurant in NY) pointed out the tip was included and therefore she wouldn`t take our money.
    We thought to have stumbled up-on the only honoust American. Turned out she was from Kazagstan.
    ;)

    Oh, and p.s. BBQ? really? what was good for the pelgrims is still good for you now?
    Happy to see that Europe has learned to use utensils to eat their food.

    O, and another ps. the Frenchman was right. Wine has to be drunk from a glass that is as thin as possible. Has to do with the taste and such, but look who i am explaining this to, someone who things etiquette is the `caution contents hot` label on his tv dinner.

    Wow... what an asswad. Always tip your food service workers, hair stylists, makeup artists, tattoo artists, valets, baggage carriers, etc. Jobs pay a certain amount knowing you`ll usually receive a tip. Yes people live off of them. Grr.

    You know what else is good etiquette not being a pompus ass. As for the glass thickness you can kid yourself into thinking you taste a difference but that`s bulls**t a wine taster I knew with this job said first hand it`s 95% bulls**t. You`re paying a premium for bull but can`t afford to tip talk about an elitist snob.

    No one really addressed my point. You don`t tip the guy stocking shelves at the store, you don`t tip the guy at the concession stand at the theater, you don`t tip the people working fast food. It`s against the law for anyone to be payed under minimum wage, so it`s not like you aren`t getting paid by the hour. WHY are waiters any more special than them? Without tips, they get paid about the same, restaurants aren`t the only place workers have to deal with jerks. What makes you deserve tips over those people? You`re still doing entry level work just like they are. It has nothing to do with being stingy, i just think if people are gonna tip waiters, then why not everyone else? They work hard too. The problem is that you all get so many tips that you expect a f.ucking handout from every customer, then if they don`t tip enough you cry about it. I get paid s.hit and work hard, but do I get tips? No. Do I complain? No. F.uck you.

    you seem to be complaining quite a bit right now... I wouldn`t tip the person stocking groceries, but my wife tips the man who brings them to her car and put them in for her... and why would I tip a fast food server they don`t bring it to my table, get me refills they take my order thats it, I tip a taxi driver if I feel he deserves it, but I wouldn`t tip a bus driver for driving his route

    i hope the banker drowns in his own martini-tinged vomit, hopefully some time soon.

    @McGovern1981 Aside from all the tourism stuff which is obviously difficult to measure we do get all the income from the royal estates which is more than the royal family cost us to keep so if we were to get rid of them we would lose all of that, and let`s be honest, Britain are pretty good at paying for all the people who can`t/don`t/won`t work, and for everyone to go to the doctors, now wouldn`t that be nice?

    "The amount on the actual receipt is $33.54, Reagan said, not $133.54 as seen on the altered receipt. And while the tip on the online receipt claims that the server was left $1.33 (or one percent of the bill), the actual tip was more than $7 on the $33.54 tab." - From Enjin`s link

    I know retract my earlier criticism.

    The news clip I saw never told the full story. We don`t hear his side at all. Suppose the service was terrible? Are you saying we gotta tip 10 - 15% no matter what? If service sux 1% sounds just fine!

    Even though this turned out to be a hoax, I want to say that it`s never okay to leave no tip, and it`s especially awful when you run out on your bill. I worked as a waitress for 3 years while attending uni in America. I made only $5 an hour, usually serving for 4 hours, and then cleaning and prepping for 2. Servers minimum wage works on the idea that we will be getting tips. On top of that, when people run out on their bill, guess who has to pay for it. Most corporate chains will cover 50% of the bill, but the rest has to be paid for by the server. I once went into work, and a huge sports team came in, got drunk and most of them left without paying, I ended actually paying to work that night. When you work in the service industry you truly see the worst side of humanity.

    And the wine bottle is made from what?? Oh ya common glass! I should mention it`s a red so you see how stupid it is cause if you wanna be a wine snobus you`d put it in a carafe before complaining the glass isn`t crystal. It`s all really BS to get your money and give an excuse to act snobby cause the differences are laughable.

    @ecstacy911 that`s not true at all, you never have to pay for somebody dine and ditching. if you did, your work was taking advantage of you.

    @McGovern1981 i think you might have been dropped on your head as a kid.

    you don`t put wine in a carafe.. it`s called a decanter. stop talking about things you obviously don`t know about.

    @McGovern1981

    The thickness of the glass wherein the wine is kept for storage or decanting isn`t of influence to the taste (if you are not a nitpicker that is).
    It`s only the drinkingglass that has to be as thin as possible.
    It has to do with the contactarea when touching the glass with your lips.
