    Once I tried to tip an IKEA delivery guy in Vancouver and things were very ackward.

  • Mark Mendoza Hernandez

    i tip depending on the service. I'm a chef and know the restaurant industry. I've had servers who dedicated themselfs to give any customer a good experience and others who showed up for the paycheck not giving any thought to their work ethic. but that's my own personal bias

    I remember going to eat at a restaurant with some friends in high school and we somehow forgot about the tip and didn't have enough after paying for the food to leave a proper sized tip but we put down the rest of the money we had. I never forget tip so I felt pretty bad about it but even worse when the waitress actually came to us and delivered a comment about how people won't want to serve us if we don't tip properly. After she walked away, one of my friends (I suppose he was a bit irritated) told us to empty our pockets. He wrote a note about how "this is all us poor kids have" and took our small pile of thread, pennies, paper clips, pocket lint etc., left it on the table with the note, and had himself a good laugh once we got outside.
    I didn't go back to that restaurant for years just because I was so embarrassed.

    Actually, i heard that in japan tipping is considered impolite, because "the staff should always do their best no matter what" and "you're spoiling them by giving them extra money". So most restaurant staff in japan actually outright refuse tips, i heard.

    I just returned from a year living in China. People do not tip there either. I visited Taiwan and Hong Kong, they do not tip there as well.
    Only the United States and Canada shames customers into paying an employee’s wages.

    A cook cooks for 4 people, messes up the order, burns himself a few times, cuts himself, sends the food out, makes $1 off that 1 table. The server brings the food to the table and makes $20.

    when you tip 0% youre screwing over the individual server, not the restaurant or the system. your "bravery" is only proving to those servers that you are a huge jerk

  • Dukerbud 88

    So, if I go to the local burger bar and grill the server (who does the EXACT same job) gets less of a tip because the prices in a fine dining restaurant are higher. And I???....I'm expected to subsidize these folks' wages just because their manager/owner will not pay them appproriately??
    Sorry, doesn't work that way and no i am not cheap. Cheap would mean that I wouldn't want to go out at all or I would be over analyzing the menu looking for the cheapest item.
    Tipping NEEDS to be abolished and the only way that will happen is if people like myself just stop the practice.
    The sad part is everyone in Canada and the US are programmed to think this is mandatory when it's not at all.

    Maybe the Canadians compensate waiters when they don't get tipped, but in the US that doesn't happen. People who want tipping to be like Europe, etc, are basically just advocating socialism. Our tipping system in the US works incredibly well. The consumer is going to pay the same amount regardless, whether it's a tip directly to the staff, or in the form of higher prices for the business to cover the higher wage. But in the US system it incentivizes the staff to give good service, and allows the business to reduce overhead and hopefully put that extra savings into their product. Additionally, it's good for the staff because they save money in taxes because they can claim less income on all their cash tips. Yes, it's a bit dishonest but it helps. Overall, if you've never been a server in the US, you probably don't appreciate how hard they work. And if you don't tip, you're essentially just an A hole who probably has some lame excuse about why you don't tip that's really just a coverup for the fact that you either don't have money, or you're a GIANT A hole who does have money.

    Many Americans fail to understand just how terrible their health care and education system is. In China, we pay around $1000/yr for top-notch university education, the rest of the tuition is paid by the government. And those WeeWoo wagon trips are also free here. I mean, damn, China is not even a developed country.

    We don't have tipping in Brazil and that's honestly a quite confusing toppic to understand when we travel to the US. It's not uncommon to have pretty awkward situations where are you forget to tip and the attendant keeps starting at you've like you just killed their mum

    If you have dinner at a business that employs people who expect to be tipped- and you DON'T tip- you're NOT making some GRAND moral statement.
    You're a freeloader. A freeloader who is benefiting from a system that they REFUSE to put back into, but are all-too-glad to TAKE TAKE TAKE from.
    Who you're ACTUALLY taking your grievences out on is the person who served you food- in the most pseudomoralistic way I can imagine.

    • MrLastlived
      MrLastlived Month ago

      No, I'm paying for a product. That is all I am obligated to do. I don't know what morally backwards world you live in, but in Capitalism I come into an establishment for a service and I pay based on what I believe the service is worth. I do not believe someone remembering what they wrote down on a paper and giving it to me, is worth anything to me. I'd rather self-serve if it was the legitimate alternative for all that you have effectively saved me is the effort of getting out of my chair when a number is called, in trade for a lot more stress on the server's end with a poultry system of gift giving to attempt to make up for the fact that even the Restaurants don't want to pay you.

    I like tipping.
    If you compare the cost of a meal in the US vs Europe taking into consideration the GDP per capita the price is basically the same for the meal.
    The difference is a waiter has no incentive to keep you happy other than not getting fired in European restaurants.
    And it shows... boy does it show. Unless it was a mom and pop restaurant in Europe the waitress acts about as friendly as a McDonald's employee in a bad neighborhood in the US. Ironically the McDonald's employees in Europe are often far more attentive/kind vs the "nice" restaurants.
    Luckily Europe is full of small restaurants where your waiter is also the son of the owner and then they might not treat you like garbage.
    On the bright side of things the small local restaurants actually have eclectic food which can be fantastic as they don't water their food down for mass appeal like in the US.
    Other than not having to clean up, taking a girl on a date, or when you are on a road trip I don't get the point of eating out in the US...not because the service or the tips those are great.... the food is just utter shit. Even Mom/Pop places seem to only know how to use salt and pepper.... my spice cabinet would shock and confuse them I've got at least 50 spices "There is more than two spices! Witchcraft!"

    Ask anybody who works in the tipping industry and they will tell you they'd rather get tips than get paid minimum wage. A bartender can take home $500 in tips on a busy Saturday night and not have to work another day the entire week.

    As a Brit, fuck the US tipping system. I can't believe they've brainwashed a whole country into thinking it's the customers fault if the company don't pay their employees minimum wage. In the UK we tip if we we're given particularly good service. Surely that's the whole point of a tip.

    • G Nk
      G Nk Month ago

      You think you are getting away with something but it just isnt true. They add the cost of paying the employee more to your bill. You always pay an automatic tip in Europe. It doesnt matter if the service was shit or great that employee will get paid the same.
      Unless it is a small family owned establishment the waiter will only treat the customer nice enough not to get fired.

      I've lived in Europe and the US.
      Your servers are utter shit unless it is a mom/pop place....sometimes (as in the server is the child of the owner thus has a vested interest in keeping you coming back).
      The price ends up roughly the same... the difference is if the service sucks we can just not pay as much via not tipping.

  • Mysticfox2010

    I tip 5$. I have no idea what % it is. If you did a decent job dealing with my table, you get 5$ no matter if I bought a 5$ burgher and fries (enjoy that 100% tip. ) or 50$ tbone steak (sorry for the 10% tip). Either way, the waiter is doing the same amount of work and I feel that is a decent amount and easy to figure in to the final total.

  • Tanya Lucas

    Depends on the restaurant. Depends on the bank the machine comes from. Depends. If I dont make good tips my restaurant doesnt make up for it and I've NEVER worked somewhere where they do. Montreal has it's own rules. Were also giving a percentages, that vary, to managers, hostesses, runners AND the kitchen. This usually varies between 3-7% of your tips. So if I make 15% all night I still only leave with 10% (5% tip out) that IM taxed on and THEY are not. Add that up per year, I'm paying to give my money to other people. If there is a transference they should be taxed on it, but it's too complicated to implement so everyone does it under the table. Videos like this piss me off because you dont know until you work in one for a long time. I've worked in 6 over 9 years.
