Why don't you put that effort into actually being a decent server? Then maybe you wouldn't have to pretend.

Coming from someone who works at a restaurant People can be pricks but that doesn't explain why op isn't getting any tips at all.

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.

Same #31 my friends always tease me when I leave a good tip and they leave nothing. kinda sad really

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.

Because some restaurants the servers have to share their tips with the cooks and other people who are not on the frontline

Seriously. OP seems too pretentious. Work a little harder, smile a little wider and the customers would automatically like you.

Why would anyone ever be nice for any reason? Too much effort. Next you're gonna say I should smile, too. Sheesh.

*slaps self across the face* Whoa. That was close. I don't know what I was thinking for a moment there. Don't ever let me talk that way again! Let me rephrase, OP: Next time give that $12 to a hobo to come in and pretend to like you. A little theatrical improv is way more convincing.

I worked at a full serve station for over a year, tips are hard to come by :P I know your pain.

I'm sure you read it wrong. I'm sure it says "coworkers". I'm also sure that if a customer knew a server was good, they would be more inclined to think she's good too.

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.

OP may be like that but a lot of people don't tip at buffet / self serve restaurants so in that case tips are rare.

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.

That sucks, but would suck more if you had to split it up with the rest of your co-workers.. That may help folks like you though, so it could be to your benefit!

If you aren't getting any tips, I'm gonna guess you aren't deserving them. Don't know enough to say YDI, but try having friendly interactions with customers instead of bare bones minimum talking.
