Let us stop this barbaric practice spreading from America into Europe. Restaurants need to pay their employees a living wage. I've lost so much money tipping

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
Then don't tip? No one is forcing you to right
2020-09-23 07:28
Tips are necessary for waiters to make a livable salary because restaurants don't pay them enough
2020-09-23 07:29
only in america tho
2020-09-23 07:32
nope. pay rate is at least minimum. thats what you deserve. you dont deserve tips, unless you are someone special. cute face or cute personalitiy or fast delivery guy. but you have to have something beyond the minimum wage pay rate.

Ah yes i too love exploiting workers. And btw many restaurants dont even pay minimum wage to waiters.
2020-09-23 08:00
maybe in other countries. In Israel you must pay minimum rate or you will be in jail. But here they do something tricky. a lot of restaurants give the salary from the tips, and if its not enough to get the minimum wage / hour, they will add a few bucks. Actually smart, but ugly.
2020-09-23 08:03
And after that people say capitalism is good Fuck restaurant owners and entrepreneurs, these are the worst people in the earth
2020-09-23 08:31
Jealous cause you’re too dumb to abuse capitalism? Problems of the 21st century I guess
2020-09-23 10:25
Exactly this lol, this fucker is mad because he is too dumb to make money.+1.

True, owners earn several thousands per month while employees are barely getting by. Without tips, they would starve.
2020-09-23 09:43
Yeah and that's the problem. Why customers have to make waiters salary livable? Employer need to make their salary livable lol. Everyone is talking about people not leaving tips but what about big restaurants owners who earn lots of money? They're just waiting for people to leave tips and problem solved

That's true and they have played it in a way that it's hard to win without some kind of intervention to solve it. I mean we don't know how long it would take until restaurant owner starts paying them a decent salary if we suddenly stop giving tips. Some could react faster and other slower on purpose, trying to bring back the tipping. Only ones who would immediately feel the effects are waitresses.

Not my problem.

If restaurants dont pay them enough then maybe its time to change a job? Why there are people who are stuck on being waiters

lol I didn't know this started in the US... It just feels like something natural to do.
2020-09-23 07:40
i never tip unless it is a very fast delivery.
2020-09-23 07:47
Im always tipping small amounts, and bigger ones when something special happens or we are in big group
2020-09-23 08:07
yes i have a friend that ordered pizza (17.4$ here) and paid the same amount in cash as a tip, cause he was on drugs (MDMA i think)
2020-09-23 08:08
Well, I usually give 10% of my order, or a bit more when Im satisfied
2020-09-23 08:48
too much
2020-09-23 11:37
Is that so? Pretty common here. When i was in usa i left 20-30% of the order price, but i didn't like it, i felt forced to do it
2020-09-23 18:10
yes, you work hard for just giving money for free to people for just doing their already paid job. 9
2020-09-23 18:16
Yeah, they are not tipping me for doing my job :P
2020-09-23 21:47
i wasnt talking about this, idk wtf u talk about now sry
2020-09-23 22:15
it started in 18 century France, or atleast thats the soonest I knew of when waiters complained about living off tips instead of proper salary
2020-09-23 08:38
I’ve actually never ever tipped in my entire life. It just isn’t a thing here in Sweden.

Not everybody does tip, but I would say it is definitely "normal" to do. Nice men, a Very_nice_danish_guy is welcome here for sure
2020-09-23 11:17
Thanks! Really looking forward to move (not love, lol..) next year, Denmark is just so flat, dark and borring compared to Austria! :)
2020-09-23 12:34
No it's not normal. People are getting paid quite good. Sure you can tip if you want for really good service if you feel like it but Noone expects you to or something.
2020-09-23 11:27
No it just isn't something that we do. The waiters/waitresses get paid enough in the first place and the food that we paid for is already expensive af. I have never heard of a swede tipping someone in Sweden, it's basically non-existant.

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

2020-09-23 10:24

2020-09-23 10:24
Your not quite right

2020-09-23 09:56
Yeah, I never tip. I don't ask them to bring me my drinks or food, they just do it. Not cool
2020-09-23 09:59

2020-09-23 10:26
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.
2020-09-23 10:49
We never tip here because they get decent wages
2020-09-23 10:59
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.
2020-09-23 11:02
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

you know in Europe i got a good story so we hired this guy with a van to move some furniture from our house to our cousins house fee was 30 euro which is not bad at the end of it my mother tried to tip him 20 Euro he would not take it great guy he was from Lithuania i think
2020-09-23 18:50
I always tip when i go out, you dont have to tip because in some countries you rarely see someone tip at all.

hell my parents lived in the US for 20 years and they recall being in Canada in 97 and eating at a restaurant leaving a tip then walking out the waiter comes full speed running after them shouting you forgot your money because at that time in Canada no one tipped they genuine thought you forgot some money

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.
2020-09-23 12:26
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...
2020-09-23 18:19
I tip because some people work very hard and they deserve it. Don't be a cunt.

oh it's not that tipping someone for doing a good job is bad it's the fact that the restaurant does not pay them enough that they have to rely on Tips it's honestly disgraceful

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
