I’m so sorry.
Here’s a dime. Call someone who gives a darn.
I always tip well. If I can’t afford to tip, then I should not be eating out.
I’ve had a son who worked as a waiter. He got “stiffed” a lot.
Waiters and waitresses don’t make enough to survive, They depend on their tips to save the day. I always give 20% or more.
That’s the picture that came with his new wallet.
In a few months, we will be able to afford new rags for clothes.
Like gas stations stating the price of gas.. restaurants need to post the wages they pay their staff so patrons can be a bit more sympathetic. The whole %% thing is wrong as well.. if you feel a need to subsidize the owners responsibility.. the tip should be a flat rate. The work involved to bring a toasted cheese sandwich is not much different that that required to bring me a $40.00 steak.
Guessing the waiter is not on ‘Facebook!’
“Your service was lousy but out of pity for your poor family, here’s a big tip.”
…and a copy of my mortgage and power bill.
Let the restaurant pay their employees! Who’s brilliant idea was tipping? I tip generously, but I wish the establishments would just charge a little more and cut out the dance.
“You’ll notice in the picture that my younger one needs braces, and the older one is in college, and my poor wife really needs …”
I read this the wrong too at first. I thought he showing a picture of the guys family and was gonna say, “And you’ll get them back when you pay the check, with a sizeable tip”.
looks like the guy only has an ashtray before him – I wonder what he ate!
