View Full Version : Okay you cheap assholes, how much do you usually tip?

No poll will be included because of the many different instances that require different amounts.

How much do you give the pizza guy? How about the cute waitress at the truck stop? The waiter at a fine restaurant? A cheap hooker? An expensive hooker? How about your barber, or do you tip him/her at all? Do you have a flat rate (10%, 15%, no exceptions) and does it apply to all places where you would usually tip?

I can say that I delivered pizza in high school for a year, and after that I got a job at a Chinese restaurant and made deliveries there. I met some really cheap assholes. If their order were $19.98 they'd give me a 20 and ask for their two cents back. Luckily the Chinese place charged $1.50 for delivery, so I at least got SOME wage for my deliveries, but still. Those jobs made me appreciate spendy tippers. With the price of gas these days I always make sure I give the pizza guy at least $3.00 extra no matter the size of my order. If it's bad weather/late at night I'll go even further and chip in 4, 5, or 6 bucks sometimes.

At restaurants I usually tip according to quality of service. If the waitress/waiter is nice and timely, I'll make sure I give her at least 20%. If I'm eating with a larger group of people and we all have seperate orders, I'll give him/her at least $2.50 extra. Large groups are always tough at they deserve more than just a top off on the dollar. However, a couple times I've gotten extremely poor service, including an instance when the whore of a waitress made a huge deal out of the fact that I simply asked for an ice cream sundae when there were none on the menu. Really, how hard would that be to make? In those cases I tip exactly nothing and leave a note behind sharing my grievance.

You're dead wrong on this issue. Their wage paid by thier employer is based on the assumption that you are paying a part of their wage. If this "social construct" was removed, your meal at a sit down resturant would be a few dollars more expensive. You're just cheap, and show a disrespect to the people that serve you.

Aside from this... have been reading a great blog called WaiterRant.net written by a guy who works at an upscale place in NY. Fantastic read.

It’s a slow Monday night and I snag my first table. Seated is a hirsute middle aged man projecting an air of superiority that makes me want to pull out my pepper mill and club him over the head like a baby seal.

Hirsute says a shade too politely, “And how are you today young man?”

“I’m fine sir and how are you?” I reply. I look at his wife. She sports a blank expression.

Nodding his head solemnly he says. “What a shame you are working on such a slow night. You can’t really be making much money. That’s got to be tough for you.” There’s a faux therapeutic quality to his speech.

In a flash I have this guy’s number. Having spent years in analysis he’s adopted the “I see all and know all” mannerisms of his shrink because he desperately lacks a personality of his own. Therapy junkies are bad customers. They therapize every situation and try and use what they learn on the couch to manipulate the people around them. Pointing out our age difference and remarking on the night’s economics is his way of establishing dominance.

Surprise asshole – I was in analysis too. Luckily my therapist wasn’t the “suck Woody Allen dry” variety that infests Manhattan. Marty was one of the good guys and he taught me all the tricks.

“The night is what it is sir,” I reply keeping my face neutral. I give him no room to maneuver.

Realizing his domination attempt’s been blunted he tries a different approach. Pointing to the wine menu he asks, “What kind of grape is in the Barolo?”

“Nebbiolo sir.”

“Yes but it’s a blend of grapes. Can you name the others?”

It’s a trick question. “Barolo is made only from Nebbiolo grapes sir.”

“Are you sure?” he asks.

“Well I’m a beer guy but I’m sure about the Barolo,” I reply smiling. Humor is another neutralizing tactic.

“I think you’re wrong.” he ripostes.

“Well that’s where we’re at,” I reply simply

Hirsute looks confused. He is supposed to be controlling the situation with whatever crap he learned through years of navel gazing on the couch. I’m not getting flustered or angry – just shutting his bullshit down with some verbal jujitsu.

“Well I’ll have a beer in any case,” he says. What a surprise. He probably can’t afford Barolo after his therapist’s through billing him.

“But of course sir.”

I take their orders. They devour the appetizers and I bring out the entrees. Sesame encrusted yellowfin tuna in a sweet balsamic reduction sauce. Yummy.

Delivered Pizza's while in college. Hated Stiffers but learned to deal with it. The rich people usually make up for it. Made a lot of money while delivering.

I usually tip two dollars for pizza and 10-25% in resteraunts depending on service.

I do have one complaint. I now see tip jars in places like starbucks. IMO someone getting me a cup of coffee doesn't need a tip. I even saw a tip jar at a Burger King drive through once. Threw my gum wrapper in that one.

I have a favorite Chinese place that I hit 3-4 times a month. It is counter service on plastic plates and utensils. They bring your food to the table, but that's it. I used to not tip there, but the counter girl now recognizes me and places my usual order with the kitchen without me having to ask for it. So I drop a couple quarters into the tip jar (about 10%) of the bill out of appreciation.

I had great service from a sweet waitress where I often eat last night. The Bill was $27 and I left her $8. It is worth it to me as I eat there a lot and she remembers. I could not ask for better service or a sweeter smile each time I go in there. She also never forgets to come over shortly after I have started my meal to ask, " Is everything alright? Is there anything else I can get you"? That goes a long way with me. I hate when they forget something and you can not get their attention until the meal is nearly over.

My friends own a restraunt. That is something they appreciate. If someone stiffs the help, they want to know why. Just stiffing them does not tell the owner much...the guy was probably just cheap. If the service was that bad that the waitress deserved to be stiffed, what exactly happened? Food? Service? Hospitality? Let then know as you say.

I agree that there's some rationalizing going on, but I'd lay off. One could just say I don't beleive in tipping, or I don't want to spend my allowance on tipping :rolleyes: , but he isn't hiding behind that.

One sure thing is that Demonpenz is going to eat good tonight. He caught a few whoppers while trolling today.

Did he just cast out his FOS line for us to swallow?

In this (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=156662&page=3&highlight=chiefsplanet+song) thread Phil had this to say about DP.
You should only believe about 1/3rd of his posts.

For excellent service, around 20%.

For good service, around 15%

For mediocre and below, 10% and under.

Having done my time working in the business I always tip well. For table service 20-25%, a buck or two, maybe more, per round for a bartender, depending on how many drinks in a round. Two bucks for the pizza guy, two bucks for the barber....I'm pretty much bald so $2 is generous.

Years ago I was working as a bartender on a quiet night. A couple of guys sitting at the bar were discussing tip etiquette and what is an appropriate rule of thumb. Another guy, a regular customer, was sitting a few stools down listening to the conversation. After a while he turns to them and authoratatively pronounces...

"Any man who doesn't tip 20% is a f***ing p**sy!".

Good words to remember the next time you're not sure how much to leave.

I worked as a service guy in high school. It sucked and it has it's own world that is for sure. I tip pretty well but i ususally don't eat out. I ususally tip well for good service at the bar. They keep the whiskeys coming they get the green. I remember in the last thread we had about this we had the I got really pissed off because people were talking about coming into restaurants late. One point from that story that i try to take from is your shift is over when it is over not a minute early. Now in some weird way i really take that to heart and give everything 100 % half assed.

I almost always tip unless the service is truly horrible. Generally $2 for the pizza guy, haircut will range $2-5 depending on how much I like it and whether it was shampooed. Restaurants depend solely on the level of service.

On average 20% unless the service is bad, then it can range from 15% to nothing.

I never tip at restaurants. It's a social construct. I tip my barber though.
I'm sure your servers enjoy paying to wait on you...

Usually tip out 3% of your total bill...so if you spend 30 dollars at a restaurant and don't tip it costs your server 0.90 to wait on you...

It's still based on service and type rest/bar.

Minimum 10% if service is bad (since the waitress is charged or to report on taxes for 8%). .

15-20% normally.

20% is easy for my simple mind to handle.
