    And below that, Dilbert draws a picture of a waiter with two salad forks up his nose, and leaves a penny.

    Uh, I’m not so sure about that.. Dogbert may not appreciate any sort of threats that may be in direct harmful relation to himself..
    Dilbert on the other hand, well..?

    Dogbert: Here’s a drawing of a snooty waiter getting bitten in a very painful place!

    Pushy and/or bad waiters typically get what they deserve.

    Tipping is required in our society, where we eat at restaurants that pay their employees next to nothing.
    A tip was money left to entice the serving woman to come share a bed for the night. She didn’t take it if she didn’t want to……

    I left a dime for a really poor waiter in NYC, he followed me out the door cursing me. It was what he deserved, but if I had stiffed him he would’ve just thought I was cheap and not said a word.

    I leave at least 20%, usually a two dollar bill, or more.

    Until you’ve worked for minimum wage, plus tips, you can’t understand what a difference a little generosity makes. In George Orwell’s “Down and out in Paris and London”, he reported how the waiters would heat the customer’s change on the stove, so that they would not be able to pick it up.

    Absolutely disagree. The people who have those jobs know what their base pay is, and how to improve it. For service that’s up to snuff we leave 20%, working back from that to 10% or a nominal $1, to make the point. Typically that’s for someone whose lack of manners, whose behavior says we’re on their schedule, made the meal unpleasant. We never blame the food or innocent mistakes on waitstaff, and we are always courteous. We want to reward a pleasant experience that they helped to make; but we certainly won’t reward being held hostage by a crude thug.

    Ah, but you’re assuming people are decent. That tells me you’re a decent person, which is awesome, but you’d be surprised how many people go into a restaurant planning not to tip, or to tip very little. Many of them will even go to the same restaurant regularly and never leave a decent tip. Hopefully, other generous customers will make up for it, but this isn’t always the case. And when you’re working paycheck-to-paycheck, you can’t afford a bad day.

    Yes, they know what the pay is when they take the job, but if they can’t find anything better, they have to take what they can get.

    That being said, I’m pretty sure nobody would argue that what the waiter in this strip did was appropriate. Servers should be decent people too.

    Fair disclosure: My husband is a server with a master’s degree, and I just got out of a several-year retail job to work in a warehouse, and I’m working on my master’s, so my view is admittedly fairly one-sided.

    Increase their base pay to match the cost of living. This isn’t 1957.

    It would have been less effort to provide good service.
