    Agreed.

    But why do we tip taxi drivers? If they handle my bags I have no prob tossing them a few greenbacks, it's a personal service. But why do we "tip" our hairstylist, they're making 40-100 off the hour we spend with them. Why do we tip a masseuse, I just paid $100 for that hour.

    Ido agree some of the people/industries that we tip or tip in certainly cultures/cites is inconsistent.

    I never heard of tipping a hair dresser and yes ive tipped cabbies IF they handle luggage, i tip Jitney sine most of them are personal cars.

    hmmm never tip a masseuse but again the SPA might get 100 but the masseuse may get minimum wage.
    anybody that touches my naked ass can get a tip from me LMAO

    Absolutely true. Doesn't change the facts that I stated not the waitresses part in it. Note that I placed some responsibility in ALL parties. It was you who erroneously placed on a singular person

    Well, eroneous to you. She instigated it. The only thing the waitress did was to share her rude and boorish behavior with the internet world. Here's a tip - if you don't want that sort of junk made public, then don't do it.

    Firstly I reread the linked article and just realized that it wasn't even the server who posted the guest check. It was another employee. That is even less excusable than if the server herself posted it. I'll answer however as if it was the server who posted the check since that's the assumption I've been using all along.

    No one is saying that customers are allowed to treat guests like punching bags. Posting the receipt on the Internet after the fact is not an act designed to stop a badly behaving customer from being abusive. It's revenge. It's childish tit-for-tat game playing. And this is customer wasn't even being abusive. And the server certainly went being treated like a punching bag.

    Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about[W: 55]

    First this pastor is a friggen moron. According to what i have read they attend this applebees after services regularly. The internet aside the waitstaff in restaurants talks. You screw with one of them and you can guarantee your service will be the bare minimum in the future. In other words if yopu are ever going to stiff the waitstaff be sure it is your last time in that location and many other local locations.

    The second part is that this is not a tip as much as it is a service charge for being a large party. I assume the management put the charge on the card anyway as it was not a voluntary gratuity as it would have been clearly spelled out on the menu and perhaps by the staff also so they do not get any whining by cheapskates. I would be lovely if we could just cross things out on the receipt we get when we charge something and have those items not charged, but it does not work that way.

    Which brings me to my next point, wow that was friggen ass. really, you are going to insult a waitress by telling her you gave her tip to god? This is why i have referred my complaints to the POS church of crap that employs said pastor. OMG what a friggen scam evangelical place that is. I know where their donations go, and it is to the bling of their leader. I am not terribly surprised at this response after seeing the types of people who attend and run that church. Unfortunately applebees is corporate, but i am sure these people attend a corporate location because any privately owned location has told them to get lost long ago. You can bet this is not the first time this person has acted in such a disgusting and reprehensible manner. People who are cheap like that and feel others are there to serve them for free do it all the time.

    In customer service jobs where you are paid to deal professionally with crap I would normally say it was wrong to publically out the cheapskate POS. Not so much when it happens to waitstaff. they do ahard job where they are often not paid minimum wage because it is expected that customers pay directly for their service through tips. basically most restaurants pay waiters to show up, and the pay for service comes from those who they serve. The waitress is not your mom. You are paying them to serve you. maybe it should be that they are paid by the restaurant to serve you instead of leaving it to tips, but that is not our system presently. So, since the customer is also the person who is paying for that service time then it should be noted when the customer doesn't pay. The same way it should be noted if some employer does not pay for employees services rendered. If you went to work and your boss decided not to pay you, then you would make a public issue out of it. It is the same thing here.

    that person wrote the note to insult the staff and now the world knows what a POS that person is. it is now enshrined on the internet for all to see. Perhaps if they feel embarassed by such a thing they should not have acted in such an embarassing way. I can see why corporate applebees did what they did as they make their money off of the food markup and they get that money no matter what so they do not give a damn if the cheapskates stiff their staff. However all the waitpeople in the area should know that this person will do whatever they can to avoid paying a tip, and they will be insulting on top of it. You get what you pay for service wise, and those who give service to these people should know they should not kill themselves to get an insult. Oh, and I have a little more selfish reason for that. I have a reputation for tipping well, and while they ignore the cheapskates i get good service. I often love how some of the cheapest people are also the ones who often support a free market. The free market states if i pay better i get better service, otherwise it is communism. It is amazing how many right wing tightwads are out there thinking they are entitled to good service for free.

    you can be sure that a few cheapskates and tightwads out there will think twice before stiffing a serve knowing that their actions will be seen by many others. That person thought they wrote a note to insult the server. if they wanted to bitch about a mandatory service charge for large parties they should have taken it up with the host, manager, or corporate. the server did not make that rule. beware if you are a person like that. A crappy reputation before the internet was a local stigma, now anyone can find out how scummy you are. if you don't like it then don't be a dick. It also seems you are unaware that waitstaff knows who the crappy customers are without the internet, and waitpeople love to talk about their crappy customers even before the internet ever existed.

    that person deserved to be outed, and now they are getting what they deserve. If you want to be a dick you need to be ready to face the consequences.
