    Probably not. Just stiffed the ones waiting on them.

    The problem with most of the ones at Winstar is that they are there every night. A large chunk of them were all together. They feel that it is unlucky to tip so they don't. The ones who didn't associate with that group were about the same as anyone else. You are right though, the people who say they will usually don't. The strange thing is I usually got more tips from people who I took from than the people who I paid like crazy.

    Well in Vegas supposedly locals all tip but that's BS too. Cheap ass is cheap ass. Helping people that win assure you of zero. Unfortunately you get jaded after a while.

    If there's anything I've learned about cheap asses, especially at casinos, if you keep at them, they will eventually crack and tip. I worked in a tipped position for two years and there wasn't a "cheap" regular customer that I didn't make jingle my till more than once.

    Very poor tips. Some, not all, but some very holier than though people. I remember a couple one time asked one of my coworkers, a single mother mind you, how she could live with herself for working on the sabbath.

    Not to mention the little prayer books instead of a tip.
    Back in the day when I was waiting tables I got more than my share of tracts as tips on Sunday afternoons.

    In general, though, I loved waiting on large after church groups. They usually tipped out well.

    Why do we get upset with people working on Sundays if we're eating out on Sundays? What do they expect?

    As you know, I work for a multi-national company. A few years ago I was reporting directly to a guy who lived in Milan. In most of Europe gratuity is automatic regardless of the size of the party, so no one tips.

    We had just hired a couple of new people into his group, so he came over to meet with us all in Plano. Four of us went out for dinner at Love & War and ran up a tab around $75 per person. My boss paid the bill. The next day he showed me the receipt and asked me if he had paid it correctly. He didn't leave a tip out of habit, so I made him go back that afternoon and take care of it.

    Couldn't agree more. I loved working Sunday mornings. It was annoying getting the flyers in place of tips every once in a while (especially the ones made to look like a $10 bill -**** those), but overall it was the easiest and best shift all week. I worked as a server/bartender for 5 years and I probably worked close to 200 Sunday morning shifts.

    The fact of the matter is, if you let one stiff on $35 in sales bother you that much (regardless of context) you're in the wrong industry. Few things are as annoying as listening to18 year old's **** about one bad tip when they're making 20 bucks an hour.

    I tip well when I get good service. If my waiter gives me shitty service, they do not deserve a tip, automatic or otherwise, no matter how much they make. I'm not going to reward somebody who is shitty at their job or has a shitty attitude toward the people they are serving.

    Write a note that say's, "Thank you for the 10 bucks to cover my 18 and damages. God Bless."

    Now...

    Go to his church and when the collection plate comes to you, nab a $10, and drop in the note.

    I never understood how restaurants can get away with paying 'their' employees 2-3 bucks an hour, while the customer is supposed to pay them the rest of their pay for simply doing the job they signed up for.

    i don't know if any restaurant actually does it but I think if you don't make minimum wage in total compensation (salary plus tips) then the employer is suppose to make up the difference

    No has seemed to notice the total on the bill is $34.93. For a party of 20? With the tip charged in? I can't even get out of a restaurant for 35 bills for a party of 2! What the hell did they order? 3 appetizer samplers for the table and 20 waters with lemon?

    It was a divided check, the other 19 people probably included a little extra on top. Just another whiny spoiled little brat that has yet to face any real challenges in life.

    There's a reason I bolded it:

    The Reddit user who submitted the image explained in the comments section that the receipt was part of a total bill for a party of 20, which is why the gratuity was automatically added.

  28. #78
    Well then is that even a party of 20? Sounds like ten parties of 2 to me

    Never seen that happen. When I waited tables we had to report some of our tips at the shifts end for tax purposes. We would of course go with a low number. There wasn't any making up the difference. Whether we were waiting on customers or rolling silverware we got paid the same.

    When I got to Vegas I noticed that everyone made minimum wage. I'm sure that was because of the unions in the hotels. There's a chance that server at a restaurant in the Mirage is making 15$/hr with full benefits. Even place outside the hotels were paying better mwages - Dennys, etc. When I got back here and was checking out some bartending jobs I found many paid less than minimum.

    I'm just reading this as a bunch of people who have evaded taxes.

    If all the waiters would claim their tips and pay taxes there would be no deficit. Thanks for ruining America.

    I love working Sunday mornings at work with the church crowd. I always walk out with triple digits and barley do anything.

    If this happened to me, I'd be a little upset, but the tab was 34 bucks...oh well

    Is "Jingle My Till" code for something?

    It sounds like it should be. You know, something extra. Like "keep the change" = swallowing.

    At least you get to control how much a server gets rewarded for their work. If restaurants had to pay their employees minimum wage the cost would be passed on to the customer.

    if you can't afford to tip your waiter, don't go to a place with waiters.

    pretty simple.

    About 18 years ago, when we were still in high school, an ex of mine and I had a part time jobs at an IHOP in San Antonio, she was a hostess. Pastor John Hagee came in one Sunday and expected his two table party to be sat in front of about 20-30 other customers who had been waiting patiently, some for as long as 20+ minutes. When my ex told him he would have to wait to be seated like the other customers he proceeded to berate her on how he should be treated differently because he was "doing God's work" and had no time to wait on lesser people and "heathens". The manager agreed that he would have to wait and he stormed out berating other employees and customers. The following Sunday on his nationally syndicated sermon show he had an entire segment of his sermon directed at "The Godless hostess" he had encountered at his neighborhood IHOP.

    When I was a bell captain at a nice hotel I told John Tesh to **** off, and sold out the counting crows to a bus full of teenagers because they were ****s.

    Turns out being a **** is not limited to pastors.*

    *to my knowledge neither of them said anything about me

    They give more than either to the government in taxes. That's the real problem.

    The two things are not related in any way shape or form.

    Tithing is supposed to be your first and best - see Leviticus. 10% of the whole, seed, oxen, etc. And you should give the best of your lot. The first and the best.


    18% is based on an expenditure, not an income.

    THe fact that anyone is trying to correlate these two is laughable.
