QUOTE (phoenix @ May 29 2004, 04:54 AM)
my hourly wage is $2.13 an hour), so tips are my main source of income. now i work in a at a small diner with less then desirable clientele, who do not know how to tip properly. i cannot tell you how many times i have been stiffed or short tipped (less then 10% which i have to claim for taxes). its instances like that, that tips should be added to bills that are over a certain amount, or a party with a high amount of people in it. this is because (now this is just me, cant speak for all waitresses/ers) i run my bum off for my tables. and to go back and collect my tip after a table of 6-8 with a bill of $50+ and see three cruppled up dollar bills laying in the mess of crumbs after all the effort i put into them well... its not a happy moment, lets just say that.

(note: I edited the quote, just cut parts out...)
That is horrible. Our food isnt exactly '5 Star Hotel Restraunt' expensive, but its up there.. Anyways, I had a table of 8 come in during Memorial Day Weekend, and the place was busy. And it was my 3rd day. I explaned to them that I was new, and they said they understood. I got my tip.. six dollars. SIX DOLLARS?! For a table of 8, the bill was at least 50 bucks. I was so mad!! Which is why, you should always, ALWAYS, CUT YOUR WAITRESS SOME SLACK! rolleyes.gif Remember that next time you go out and get a shy new waitress. ^.^

I myself am a waitress, and I always tip 20%. I just started, but I'm fairly good. And some of the time for bad service, the waitress is helping other workers, or other tables. Espically on busy nights. So, if you arent a tipper, cut us some slack. smile.gif We need money too.
