you split your tip because thats how many restaurants are run...splitting the tips with the wait staff, busboys, bartenders....not because the waiter said hey look i got $500 and i wanna share it!!

um, you split the tips because if you didn't, the bartenders and busboys, and the host/ess wouldn't get anything because only the waiters get the tips. but lets say you got a $50 tip instead of a $10 tip because you managed to get the food to the table in time because the chef was really fast & so was the bartender, ect so they helped you earn that tip so its nice to split them. so yeah, THATS why he would do that. try common sense much, god. you're an idiot. did you know that? well, now you

It's never failed to amaze me how society expects this "tip" thing. Do I tip the girl at fast food joints for bringing my food to my table? Do I tip the sales associate who helped me find the right size of pants? Do I tip my dentist for yanking a painful tooth? Hell, do I even tip the COOK/CHEF/w.e. who MADE the dinner??? Hellz no. I tip the woman or man who brought it to me. Nevermind how tipping's percentage has gone up over the years... When I was TAUGHT to tip, it was 10%... No

But that's why they pay waiters next to nothing wages, and those people like the Chef and hostess make more money. Waiters wages are designed to where the majority of their income is their tips, this must be a chain or corporate owned restaurant that OP works at, because that's a BS policy about splitting tips, that kind of shit is for coffee and ice cream shops. And Bartenders make their own tips too, most restaurants that serve cocktails have bars where people can go up and sit at.

The idea is to make a larger portion of a waiter's/waitress's salary directly proportional to how well they do their job by paying them a lower base salary and getting the rest in tips. If not for tips service would generally be a lot worse and no cheaper.

71 you are an idiot...if you can't tip your server even 20% since the "inflation" is so rough, then don't waste our time going out to eat. i've been a waitress for years, i get paid 2.33 an hour, and every day i put up with people who feel it's okay not to tip people who's job is to make sure their meals are good and they are happy...and if you can't appreciate the hard work servers go through to make sure you are happy, then don't even dine out. in a lot of restaurants, a portion of

steph last I checked 20% was for exceptional service not average service. Also, why are you complaining about tips since you've been a server for years? One would think you're used to it by now. Those people who feel its ok not to tip people for only doing their job and nothing more are correct in their belief. I don't know where you servers get this feeling of self entitlement from; if not getting tipped for only doing your job, and nothing extra, bothers you then maybe you shouldn't be a serve

Steph, If you are really a server than how come you don't know how much you make? No where in North America or Australia is it legal for a server to make $2.33 - anyone who has ever truly working in waitstaffing can tell you that, and there is a giant sign in every restaurant that by law, has to be placed somewhere employees walk past every day stating the same. You can have a base wage of $2.33 but in no way does that mean you make $2.33 - if your tips don't bring you up to minimum wage, your e

#139 - Yes, it actually IS legal. The government assumes that you will be making up for the hourly wage in tips, so it is legal to be paid much, much less than what is the state law for "minimum wage". In New York I was only paid $4.35 per hour while minimum wage elsewhere was over $7 bucks. I agree that the system is fucked up. We should be getting paid much more than the minimum wage for the work we do, so that way when we don't get tips, we're not suffering from it. Whoever

139 in America it is legal because the waiter claims their tips which puts them atleast at minimum wage. also it's the law that if you don't make enough tips to make minimum wage the manager has to pay you more. and for you people saying it's stupid to tip you do know that waiters or valet and stuff do not make minimum wage without the tips. tips are their main pay. I could understand not tipping if they are a crappy waiter or they made minimum wage.

Yeah, where I work we tip out the bartenders and host. 3 percent of our total sales go to the ones who earn at least min wage... and the bartenders get their own tips! Hella fucked up.

Cxal, you're wrong. I'm a server and make 2.13 an hour. I work in the states and have been a server for years. And 20 percent is about an avg tip and a normal expectation. A party with 7 or more has an automatic added gratuity of 20 percent.

I just love being in Australia where you're not expected to tip. It's not considered offensive if you don't tip, and if you do, it's appreciated a lot more :-)

Depending on where you work in Canada, you make minimum wage plus gratuities. As a former waitress myself, I only tip for above average service. I wouldn't expect to receive a tip for just doing my job, therefore I go above and beyond to earn my tip and I expect the servers serving me to do the same.

You wouldnt notice your name on the credit card or the credit card receipt???? Your a waiter pretty sure your suppossed to pay attention to things like that. That could just be me, it's okay though because you will get it back from them, just go grab a dr. pepper and think it over. I'm sure it will come to you, and if it doesn't YDI because you don't have an imagination, and if you don't have an imagination than it must be hard to live all the way up on drury lane with the muffin man because you

I almost think that you deserved it for believing that your parents left you a $500 tip. I would've automatically assumed it was a mistake. If they were going to give you that much money, why would they do it via a tip while you were waitressing?
