theres only a couple people i tip, my barber and strippers( only in the designated tip zone, anywhere else fuck off hoe). white people fuck it up all the time overseas tipping when it aint necessary and then monkey see monkey do. fuck all these service industry people crying about people that are cheap and dont tip( get a new job or get a gun and rob someone). the worst are the non service people with the tip jars out but once again monkey see monkey do can ya blame them. I am waiting on the day someone comes out and says something to me, i will embarrass the shit out of them and ask to speak to the manager thug life nigga. and all you people here that say blacks and asians dont tip , its CUSTOMARY NOT MANDATORY dumb fucks, and the hispanics why they gonna tip they own family members.

yes, it is customary not mandatory.

so you are choosing to be disrespectful and rude simply because its not mandatory to be polite?

 

that makes you and whatever people fit into the ethnic group you think you're representing fucking stupid.

 

so tell me some colored folks stiffed you on a tip and you got all red in the neck, should have regulated on them or else keep ya mouth shut. everyone knows there are people who dont tip, tip little, or tip big. point is do your job is what ya bossman gonna tell you.

Why don't you 'Mericans just pay people a proper wage and any tips on top of that are just an extra way of saying thanks, rather then having the customers pay their wages. I will tip someone for a job well done, no doubt. There's a few pubs that will always give me a free jug for being a top regular customer..

But I think it's more then just a simple gratuity when you're expected to pay your waiter/waitresses wages.

 

little cafe near my work, sometimes id go in an buy a muffin and juice for fucking $8 because there wasn't time to walk anywhere else.

 

walk in, get $5 juice from fridge, grab day old $3 muffin off the counter and get attitude from the faggot cashier for not leaving a tip.

 

I would see buying something at a counter completely different to being brought your food at a restaurant.

I can understand tipping at a bar, restaurant or tipping your barber. They're providing you a service, but when you grab your own food and take it to the counter to pay, why should you tip? There's no service to tip on. You don't tip at McDonalds do you? Or when you're buying clothes? Maybe if you were getting a tailor made suit or something..

 

Would 'Mericans tip a photographer? That's a service, if so I'm gonna move to get a 20% pay rise on every job I do :lol:

tipping a photographer? perhaps for your wedding or a very special anniversary 50yrs or something but i would have to be very impressed with not only the photo quality but the persons attitude and demeanor.glamour shots for your kids or a couple hell no. I'm sure everyone knows someone with an camera thats better than average and knows how to use it.

 

tip jars are so prevalent now when i go out i completely overlook them. I will however give cheritably to the ASPCA every time

That's a good point, but that said, I'm sure most people know someone with a set of hair clippers who will cut your hair for free. So why tip your barber more for doing that?

 

I'm not against tipping, just seeing how it all works. I'm not in the group of cheap fucks who can't say thanks, more in the "I'm from the other side of the world and have no idea". Haha.

More like $2.65 to work, or something crazy like that.

 

Just to be clear, the way it works (at least the way I understand it) is that if the tips you make that week don't cover the difference, your employer has to pay you minimum wage for the hours you worked. I never worked for minimum wage in my life, but I think it's like $8.00 where I live? Either way, still shitty.

 

Like I said, it is kinda absurd that employers figured out this racket to get customers to pay their employees for them, but that's the way it is. However, no matter how absurd it is, you're still a cheap cocksucker if you don't tip.

 

Edit: Nevermind, minimum wage is $7.40. That's crazy, cause that's what it was when I got my first job like 6 years ago. I remember being hyped I started off at $7.50 ha

back in the day i used to be a waiter day shift at a high end restaurant and nights at a low end

same level of service except at the high end i had runners deliver my food. i did nothing and pulled $100 a lunch

for dinner i ran all my own food plus everyone elses and was lucky to pull $80-100 for almost 2x the hours. you know who really dont tip?... hungry christians after church sundays. especially during christmas fucking cheap jesus groping bastards.

 

women no matter of looks always cleared $200 and sat around chit chatting, not taking care of customers and dropping their food constantly

serving is definitely a female racket. men make shit.

 

i tip 20% unless someone is just incompetent. if thats the case i give 10-15. giving below is just wrong.

 

now where i go wrong is the bar scene. i feel like tipping on the whole experience not per drink

but some places wont hold a tab. i dont want to tip each time that is bullshit. i want to tip at the end of the night and i'm more likely to give a better tip then i would if tipped $1 per drink.

now ive gone to shitty bars where ive told the bartender can i run a tab and they said no so i said ill tip you at the end of the night. they didnt trust me so they cut me off early and bitch even pointed me out to other bar hands not to serve me. guess what i didnt tip at all then. but i avoid that and just buy high end beer from the liquor store and never go out to drink. oh well
