Then don't tip? No one is forcing you to right
If restaurants dont pay them enough then maybe its time to change a job? Why there are people who are stuck on being waiters
Yea fuck tipping dumb capitalists just need to stop being tight asses they have enough money to begin with pay your fucking staff properly fuckers
lol I didn't know this started in the US... It just feels like something natural to do.
I’ve actually never ever tipped in my entire life. It just isn’t a thing here in Sweden.
I only tip to nice staff and who don't act like robots
at least you shouldn't be forced to tip. in russia you don't have to tip and that's okay, but in some european countries it's mandatory
Don't tell me what to do with my own money
Im not an american puppet!
I never tip.
I don't ask them to bring me my drinks or food, they just do it. Not cool
No. Waiters etc get a good wage here in Austria.
Unless a waiter/server gives me horrible service, I will always tip. I was born into a fortunate household which gave me a good education, and if I can afford to help those in need, I will. Restaurant workers here are often young people doing part time work to help them get by whilst studying so it's important to invest in them.
We never tip here because they get decent wages
It's not mandatory to tip here in the Netherlands but plenty of people choose to do it because of the service. They get decent wages here too.
It baffles me how it works in the US.
Thats not the point in europe isn't it? Tipping is a way to reward above average service to insentivise them to deliver better service in the future. I don't tip if I didn't like the service, and I do if they were great / fast / gave a good recommendation etc.
Because I am okay with paying a bit extra if I get something out of it
I always tip when i go out, you dont have to tip because in some countries you rarely see someone tip at all.
i always tip good but i get sex after
so its worth for me.
as a handsome guy tipping is like an invitation to sex.
a friend of mine worked in an irish pub in the center of a city. was full every night. he had a 30 hours per week contract and made 1200 Euros from it. that was his salary.
all waiters split the tips and in total he made roughly 3000 Euros per month!!! so he was working 30h a week to get 3k. just because of tipping. it was a hard job and he had to work 12h shifts, but still, he made more than me and I work 40h per week and have a fucking degree in physics :)
I don't mind tipping waiters/waitresses because they deserve to be tipped but it's still a choice at the end of the day. There is also the act of restaurants forcing customers to tip because the restaurants won't pay them enough, which is just cruel.
I suppose it comes down to "moral dilemma" at the end of the day...
I tip because some people work very hard and they deserve it.
Don't be a cunt.
as my Father says "Tipping is a Town in China" my honest take on Tipping is ban it it's fucking bullshit that you go to a place eat some food and then ontop of having to pay for said food you have to pay extra cause the scummy restaurant does not pay them enough what a scam hell i'd say it's the biggest scam going in the US rn if i didn't know another one see in some states they don't actually add the VAT into the price that's calculated at the Till for example you buy something that says 1 dollar but it actually costs 1 dollar 18 cents i know it seems trivial but it adds up why do they not just add the VAT into the price of a good like they do in Europe my theory is Americans are just too lazy but no one has ever given me a reasonable reason why they do it
