    Re: Couple Busted for Refusing to Pay Tip

    Tips are performance pay....
    I tip at least the minimum of 15% to 20% for very large bills, and a higher percentage for small bills, like a breakfast.

    But in no case will I even eat at a place that has mandatory tipping....I want to reward good service, and punish bad service. But pretty much the only time I see the service as bad is when the server is rude and I make sure the management knows about it.

    Do yourself a favor and NEVER, and I mean NEVER eat at the same restaurant more than once.

    Regardless of whether it is done via a tip, or if it were to be incorporated into the cost of the food you would be paying to subsidize their wages, you subsidize wages every day, with every single item you buy.

    You are just a cheapskate rationalizing your way our of spending money, and screwing someone over who is going out of their way to cater to your at the same time.. low.. very low.

    Most places require a server to tip out their bartenders, and bussers ect. based on a percentage of their sales, usually to the order of 3-5% of their sales. Now say your bill was $30 and you did not tip them, they still are required to tip others based on your bill, at 3% that server just had to pay $1 out of pocket to cater to your needs jackass.

    And don't feed me that "they don't report their tips" bull****. the IRS watches this closely and even if they are dishonest about it your server is claiming at least 8-10% pf their sales.. so again you are screwing them over because they are paying taxes on monies that they did not receive, all because you have some personal issue with tipping.. JACKASS.

    And a reminder.. NEVER go to the same restaurant twice my friend.

    I rarely go out. The last time I was in a restaurant was 6 or 7 years ago.

    Paying higher wages and charging more for the food is the proper way of doing it. Why this industry is behind the times is beyond me; but I won't feed into it.

    Alright, that makes your stance much more palatable, I can respect that.

    If you do go out.. I implore you to suck it up and take care of your server though, it really is on par with stealing food from a baby IMO (and in some cases it could be literally).

    Well aware of that..thank you for babysitting though. In this situation worth the infraction to drive a point home (and a FYI.. I preemptively had reported myself)
