Do you tip servers? Anonymous 31694[Reply]
Tipping culture is so fucking ridiculous. I'm Canadian and live in a province where servers make $14 an hour and where food is hella expensive. I always hear in the US servers make very little money and food is cheap as a result, but customers are meant to subsidize their wages. I always see servers on the internet (from Canada too) talking about how people shouldn't go to restaurants if they won't tip 15-20%. fucking entitled cunts.24 posts and 1 image reply omitted.

In Canada, food is expensive, servers make decent money AND we're expected to tip? wtf? And servers feel SO entitled to tip money too. Like, if you don't tip on every drink you get, bartenders will refuse to serve you. Or if you regularly go to a restaurant and they start to recognize you as the "non-tipper" you have to start being concerned about them doing shit to your food. Or dipping their balls in your sauce like that recent news story.
I always get comments from friends and family about being rude and not tipping, but IDGAF. I've had servers approach me and ask where their tip was. I've worked behind the counter at a food service place (where tipping wasn't expected) as a teen and in retail, and where do these employees get off being so rude over this shit? This all makes me less sympathetic with those "tales from retail" stories about customers being assholes.
Anyone else pissed off about tip culture? It's pretty much giving donations at this point, fuck off, they make more than many professions that require degrees.
Anyone else annoyed?
>>258329>I don't tip policemen either.
that's not the best comparison because you have to actually do your job to get tipped.
I don't know if you're joking (this is the Internet in 2023), so just in case: tipping the police is bribing, it lands you in jail.
>>258350>tipping the police is bribing
And this is why I disregard the law. These rules make no fucking sense. You tell me there is a difference between showing my gratitude for good service when it comes to dining at a restaurant and extra care and attention given by nurses on the ward? How can this be considered 'bribery' if you're doing it after the fact? Are you telling me I should 'bribe' the waiters before being served a meal, so they don't spit in my food?
I don't want to see such corruption in healthcare where nurses treat you better based on just how likely you are to tip them later
I'm in the US and I don't get it either. Restaurants should just pay their staff properly. Recently dined in an upscale restaurant where it was already over $100 a person and at the end there was a forced "gratuity" of 20%. Seriously why?
