I think you guys in the New World have confused the conceptof 'Tip` and `Salary`. You should do womething about it, and while your at it, please start using kilometeres and meters. Thank you.

@keyth: In Canada it's minimum wage (about $10 hour now) PLUS any tips they may get.

I do know some US States have a lower pay rate for food service staff, to reflect them getting tips.

@Fwoggie2: Cool story! Quebec doesn`t represent the rest of Canada, although bad service can happen anywhere...

@carmium: I`m "old school" and tip 10% pre-tax, which is about 12%. I`ve had servers suggest 25%! Good golly! You didn`t even capture, kill, clean, cook it!!

Having worked in a few kitchens, I know a lot of cooks get NO tip money. Some places have "tip sharing" though.

Now see, I had a big bust up over tipping with a waiter in Montreal once. Went there with a NY couple for some beers. They told us to sit wherever we liked and it was table service. Came up, took the order, first beer arrived about 5 or 6 minutes later. We ran out, and I tried several times to get the roving barman's attention, before walking up to the bar and getting my own (with difficulty, because the barmaid behind the bar was far more interested in her gossip mag). Another couple of times it happened and we got fed up and decided to find some place else. The bill was $64.50 CAD, so we left $65 on the table and walked out.

He comes running out after us screaming we hadn`t left a tip. Of course I hadn`t, it was table service, minus any service of any kind and I told him so. He broke into French, called me and my mother lots of nasty things, so I broke into fluent French and asked him if he was gonna shut up or if I should chat with his boss instead. He backed off
