I'm not in charge of tips, but I always make sure my dad gives out a generous amount.

Yes, I used to be a bartender, so I understand the importance of tipping well. Unless the service really sucks.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/8/07 - 9:00:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. Fortunately tipping is not custom dow here.

Depends on the service.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/8/07 - 9:39:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I get outstanding service I will tip, if not I will not tip at all.

McDonald's doesn't require tipping.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/8/07 - 10:12:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
It depends on the service.

I work in restauants, and have for years. As a teen, I was a waitress. I definitely tip. I leave 10% if the service was pretty lacking, at least 20% if the service was great, even if the meal was bad, or prepared poorly( not the waitstaff's fault) , & I have left the dreaded one penny tip, but that was once.. to a waitress at IHOP so bad it was almost melodramatically poor. Yes, she even spilled stuff on us.( but shrugged it off- I've been spilled on & tipped well before as well) I've also left 50% tips to exceptional waitstaff/hosts..I consider myself & my friends to be pretty damn good tipper. Especially because those of us who haven't worked in foodservice quickly get educated to the reality & are forced to tip well. :)

er-the waitress shrugged spilling stuff off- i didn't shrug it off, especially because of her attitude...
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 3/16/07 - 7:33:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I usually don't tip.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 3/16/07 - 7:47:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
If it's good service I tip obscenely well. Poor service, I tip like everyone else does. ( I'm a server, so that's incredible funny to me...you know because most people don't tip for sh*t)

I dont mind tipping, I worked in food service in my younger years, most servers depend on tips to supplement a small wage.

Like wonderland, if it's good service I tip well, if it is mediocre or poor, they get the proper percentage.

If it is super sucky service, I ask for a manager, and no tip. But it is a very rare occasion that happens.

Adequate service get 10% (or a the coins, which ever is greater). Good service gets 20% (or a dollar, whichever is greater). Great service gets more (but rarely more than 25%). Bad service may get nothing. Insulting service has gotten negative tips (paying by credit card is fun).

Bad food can be the wait servers fault: cold or poorly presented. The wait staff should check for presentation before delivering. And their reaction to "This is really bad" or, "Is this how it's supposed to taste?" certainly counts.

For instance: I had a wine one night that clearly tasted wrong - I'd had the vintage before. I suspect there was some residue in the glassware or the wrong wine had been served (we'd ordered by the glass). The waitress was non-plussed when we asked about it after the first sip, and did nothing about it. The cost of the wine (that we did not drink) was equal to about 15% of the meal cost. She didn't get tipped.

If the service was bad, no. Otherwise I would make sure my dad paid alot.

15%.
less if they have an "attitude".

More if they make me want to go back there.

Yep, and when you realize you need a job and, oh look! all that's available to make a decent earning is waiting tables, I suspect you will regret that.

15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 5/3/07 - 12:23:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I tend to tip 20% or so, unless they're a total jerk. It's hard doing that all day for minimum wage.

Good thing about living with parents - Paying is not up to me!
15 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/5/07 - 12:52:13 PM EST (GMT-5)

Unless the waiter or waitress is just horrible, I tip pretty well.

Usually I just double the tax.

14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 11/12/07 - 1:01:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I always take good care of my server, unless they are rude...
