Actually it's psychologically proven if everyone had positive things to say about each other everyone's mental state would be very healthy, suicide rates would be at an all time low. If the governments would consider compliments for money I think we'd live in a much nicer world.

Depends- was she new/just not getting the hang of it/extremely busy? Until you've waited tables yourself i don't wanna hear shit. Now if she was just plain mean & rude, ignored you, or anything like that, then she got what she deserved. Oh well.

That's crap. Waiting tables is a job. The customer doesn't have any obligation to care about the situation of the server, any more than that same waiter has any obligation to care about the particular situation of their hairdresser or their bus driver. One need not wait tables to have a valid opinion on waiting tables. We all know it's a shit job. We all know that it's difficult. We all know that it doesn't pay well. And most importantly, we all know that's why you aspire to something bet

^^ yes. I said this in a previous fml. but no one would have it. Why should customers have to 'makeup' for a waitress' lack of pay? Rhetorical question btw, I don't want to hear someone's speal.

It wasn't nice though, nice would of been the compliment and a tip. By not tipping your server you are telling them that all the hard work they did doesn't deserve payment because a server only makes 2.13 an hour in most states and depends entirely on tips. While restaurants are required to comp you the money you don't make below minimum wage they often make it incredibly difficult and will fire you if you demand compensation too often even if it is only because of a slow period in the restauran

#38, I completely agree with you. That's how I feel every time someone doesn't tip me, and all I can think is; 1.) They've never worked in a restaurant 2.) They didn't like my service. I try to be very personable and sweet to every guest that comes in, but some people have the personality of a wet paper sack. You kill them with kindness and they still may or may not leave you a good tip, or any tip at all. When you don't tip your servers, you're saying "all your work was all for nothing&

38 - Not so much... by not tipping, you're saying the waiter/waitress didn't go above and beyond what should be expected. A tip is not payment, it's gratuity, a gift, and no server is entitled to it. The fact that the government considers it payment is flat-out retarded. You want to cast blame? Then blame the government, because the customer is NOT at fault. P.S. - I generally tip, save for when I get especially bad service, because I know servers rely on it. Many people, however, do not

@38 A server only makes $2.13/hour if the tips make up the $5.12/hour difference. Servers must make the federal minimum wage, and if the tips don't make up the difference, then the employer is required by law to pay the difference. If a server made no tips at all, the employer would legally be required to pay the entire minimum wage. It is all right there in the Fair Labor Standards Act. It is also right there on the minimum wage information poster that is required to be posted in a conspicuous

while that's true an employer would rather have a staff member who doesn't demand the payment because it's more money for them. They may be required by law but they can also add fees to it or any number of other things too. They may even fire the employee because there are always people who would do the same job and not demand the compensation if they don't make minimum wage because they want it anyway.

@175, obviously you have never worked at a restaurant or if you have you worked at one that deserves a god damn award for being one of the best in the country. Yes they are federally required but do you know what happens when you don't make enough in tips too many times? You lose your job. Or worse they make you jump through hoops which they can legally do. Waffle House managers will avoid counting tips like the plague but lets say that Sunday I do really good, I make 80 bucks in tips for a ten

It depends. I know some people that never tip. I know some people that always tip, even if the service is terrible and it is only 1% of the check. I've always tipped about 20% of the check for a good waitress/waiter. I tip slightly over that for excellent waitresses/waiters. I think the record low was 5%. That was because she only visited the table to take our order, drop off the food and drinks, and to toss the check at us. We never got any refills.

Actually, assuming OP would catch then dashing, it would be more beneficial if they tried because at least she'd get criminal charges as retribution..
