Hehe... I always remember and appreciate customers who tip 20% and up.Deedle said:whats considered a "good tip", "average tip" and the "expected tip"
Way2Short said:How do you deal with people who give you an attitude for no apparent reason? Do you do things to people's food drink when you know your not getting a tip?
ah good answer i was bout to ask the same question i guess it vary's from person to person, and their temper.AbstraKt said:We are supposed to deal with them the same as the nicest, most outgoing customers... we (waiters) just think it's funny, go into the server alley and talk about them, then hold low expectations from them.
I, personally, do not put foreign objects into people's food and/or drink, however, I do know people that have.
Well, 15% is standard, in good and bad service. It's like this: when people go out to eat, they pay for food, however, when they want service (unlike McDonald's or Wendy's) they are expected to pay for service, good or bad. It is completely understandable to tip low when things get messed up within the waiter's capacity. If the cooks/chefs mess anything up it is not the waiter's fault as he/she does not prepare the food itself. You are in the right to tip 15%, however, I think most waiters nowadays feel the new standard is 20%.twistedframe said:Ok I am a good tipper. So much that even if I get just ok service I still leave at least 15%. So it takes alot for me to not leave a good tip. Why do waiters have such a hard time figuring out why they got a crappy tip after they screw up orders, forget drinks, and don't come back to your table for the whole meal? I heard one guy cussing about us after we left 15%. he never came back to the table once for the whole meal. All he did was take our orders.
Just for reference, I would never ask such foolishness from anyone waiting on me. Some people have issues.07BlakBlak said:So back I went, got some warm tea, had her add her sweetner herself, then I went back for Ice. Got the ice and brought it back with a lemon on the rim. She was still not happy. She asked if I could take it back, squeeze the lemon into the ice, then pour the tea over the ice with the lemon already squeezed and in the ice. Sooo.......I brought it back to the kitchen, got some new ice, put in the lemon, put in the tea....and Stirred!!!!
All that for a 12% tip :sadwavy:07BlakBlak said:I was a server for a few years. I have realistically only F'ed with someones food one time. This woman was asking for iced tea, I brought it out....unsweetened being that there are sugar and sweetners on the table. She was adament about having the tea sweetened while it was warm because the sugar would not dissolve well enough if it was cold and had ice in it already..... So back I went, got some warm tea, had her add her sweetner herself, then I went back for Ice. Got the ice and brought it back with a lemon on the rim. She was still not happy. She asked if I could take it back, squeeze the lemon into the ice, then pour the tea over the ice with the lemon already squeezed and in the ice. Sooo.......I brought it back to the kitchen, got some new ice, put in the lemon, put in the tea....and Stirred!!!! You can probably guess what I chose as my stirrer. It made it all worth it when I brought it back and diddnt even get a thank you. She did tip 5$ on a $40 check though.....
