If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to eat out. How much should you tip a waiter or waitress? Think about how much you’d like to be paid per hour. Give them that as a bonus. Bad tippers will not be tolerated.
Foodservice is up there with “Amazon warehouse employee” for jobs notorious for mistreating employees. Trust me. I worked at a cafe in Williamsburg for a whole week. Those were dark times.
Bartenders and servers have it rough. Their bosses are usually scumbags, the other waiters are always skipping their shifts to go on auditions, the cooks are mean or downright psychopaths, the pay is bad, and you’re on your feet most of the time. Notice how I haven’t even mentioned the customers yet?
Being a bad customer at a restaurant is adding to someone’s already awful day. If you’re rude to waitstaff, you’re probably a bad person. It’s top on the list of red flags. Don’t be that guy. Tip well or don’t go out at all. Especially right now.
Here are stories from servers who refused to let bad tippers bring them down:
Bruh if you ever leave your number but not tip imma still text you but imma start off by calling you a broke bitch

So today I got tipped 78 cents on a $125 bill and I actually ran after the guys and gave them the change back and said “You need this more than me apparently”
LOL @ MY LIFE

5. Reminder: Don’t ever do this.
If you don’t want to tip at least 20%

A young couple came in tonight and they ate all their food and didn’t give me any complaints but didn’t leave a tip.. I have the girl on Snapchat, so do I snapchat her and ask why they stiffed me? 😂😂

I was helping out this family at work and right before they were about to leave the dad comes up to me and while reaching into his wallet says “here since you’ve been so nice” and I’m guessing it’s a tip. He handed me a jehova witness business card. pic.twitter.com/QvFfPGji4P
