or you could be nice to the customers and maybe they'd actually like and tip you?
Coming from someone who eats at restaurants, we certainly can be dicks. I was always taught to tip a good waiter/waitress well. If only my friends were taught the same. Granted, they grew up a bit but I remember back when we all were broke and they didn't see the point in tipping. It's not always the waiters/waitress's fault.
As someone else stated before, as long as they do their job, they deserve what I believe is owed to them. I've had my fair share of shitty servers and I do agree they shouldn't get tipped. Tips are more or less a thank you for doing your job, better job you do, the bigger the tip. But some people, no matter how great of a server they have, they still won't dish out the cash. This conversation reminds me of the beginning of Reservoir Dogs though, haha.
Service with a smile and a bright hello and a good morning or afternoon will do the trick. If you're a shy or quiet server then that's probably why, don't be afraid to show kindness.
I've never actually been a waiter but I have been a cook for a small family run diner. Those are the best places to be a server. The regulars may not tip extremely well, but you're almost guaranteed some cash. One day I was given 20 bucks by some guy who'd come in all the time. He said my home fries were the best he's ever had. That definitely made my week.
This kind of shit only works for so long OP, people are gonna find out sooner or later and think you're full of shit and then you'll lose credibility woth your co-workers. Why don't you put in extra effort to have your customers be satisfied with your service? It's a win-win situation.
