I just got home from a semi busy day. Two 8th grade promotions and a meeting at my church. We were at a restaurant. I just thought of this question. How much do you tip your servers?
I mean, I can’t say this for every waiter/waitress but most hourly wages for these employees are below minimum wage. This means they predominantly live on their tips to live their life. So, I personally tip based on service. Tonight our waitress was very good. If I had more cash available to spend I would have tipped her more but I just did 18% plus 5 dollars.
But what is your habit? Do you leave a couple of bucks? Do you leave nothing? Do you base it on service?
Years ago I was in a Denny’s There was no one in the restaurant at the time. And this waiter gave us the worst service I have ever had. What did I do? I answered their crappy service with a lousy tip. I basically grabbed the change in my pocket and left it on the table and walked out. I did not feel bad. There was no refills. They never asked us if we needed anything else. Basically ordered our drinks, he came back took our order. Brought the food and never returned until he decided to give us our check. On the opposite spectrum I have tipped as much as 40.00 for great service.
But I am curious since the majority on tumblr are college students and highschool students. How do you tip?
