    I've seen hotel restaurants add tips for room service. I've never seen a regular restaurant do it unless it's a large party, then some of the more expensive ones do.

    My experience is that it's usually been the hostess or manager that handles things since they are the one who answered the phone.

    If I happen to know that a server is taking care of things then they get a tip but the times I run into that are few and far between (One exception, I order from a particular bar with some regularity and when I walk in they start making my order. Those folks all get tipped well)

    I absolutely refuse to do tip jars.
    That's nothing less than outright begging, IMO.



    Generally, agree, but it depends on the place.

    I wouldn't get me started on waitresses. If you think I crack on your profession, I go harder on waitresses. They make excellent money for work anyone can do. I worked with a guy who made almost 60 grand a year, and still made less than his wife as a full-time waitress at a reasonably upscale establishment. Not fair, if you ask me...but ah well.

    I don't blame people though....people who have never worked in the food industry really don't understand what it all entails as is evidenced by a lot of the comments on this thread. Most people assume that the hostess/manager is doing the work......nope.
    Things generally work different around here, I guess. It's usually the cashier (which is also the asst mngr) where I often get take-out, the servers never do it that I've seen. I'm not saying they don't in other places, though. Customs and SOP differ from city to city.

    I understand what you are saying there. But what I don't get is the part where the tip stops being payment for services rendered and become a surcharge on the food instead.
    I may be wrong.

    Then perhaps more people should do it.

    You didn't strike me as one of those "fair wage" types.
    I figured you for more of a "market forces" kind of guy.

    When you are expected to pay a certain percentage no matter what the quality of service is it becomes a surcharge. If I get really bad service I leave a penny to show my contempt and one time a waiter followed me outside to yell at me over it. I told him you gave me s**** service, enjoy your penny.

    That's the kind of service that I'll give a little extra for,my time is worth a lot to me.

    I can believe that. I worked at an upscale restaurant as a bus boy for awhile. I walked out with $20 on Friday and Saturday nights, the waiters averaged over $100. That was almost 40 years ago.


    I disagree about who can do it, though. Being a good waiter at an upscale place isn't that easy.
