For those who don't tip or tip pennies on the dollar, I hope you all realize that your server can lose money because of you. If the service is terrible, then fine I understand not tipping, but you have to realize that servers tip out the staff and bartenders. Thus at the end of the night they have to take their tip money and tip out. Thus if you don't tip them, when their service was good, you can cause them to lose money.

I went to Wings Surrey quite often & they never include gratuity in their bills.

Were you go there with a large party ?
usually restaurant will add gratuity instintly when they need to serve large party such as 8+ persons.

The % I tip is strictly based on service.

Sometimes I go to a Chinese/western diner for breakfast where the bill is usually $5-6. The lady always grabs me a paper, fills my coffee and asks if I need anything, etc. I've never tipped out less than $2.

Conversely, I've tipped nothing on meals over $200 (for 2 people). It's gotta be pretty bad to get to that though.

b.) Probably hold a job which prevents you from "truly" becoming as rich as you'd like to be, hence needing to over tip to make up for this feeling of inferiority.

c.) Undertravelled (worldly)

d.) Earn about $14/hour (baller)

e.) All of the above!

if the service is rude they get 2cents and most likely a complaint to the owner (no middlemen straight to the main guy)

if its average service i tip whatever seems fair isnt really based on percentage but id guess 20%

if i loved the food and service i go up to 50% or whatever mood im in i usually go by $ amount and not %

usually find myself tipping hot dog vendors and small family establishments more than anywhere else, usually feels like they deserve/need it more

ok so to all the ppl saying shitty service

do you consider how few servers and/or chefs there are compared to customers?

you cant blame them if the manager is too cheap to hire more chefs and waiters, at most restaurants i worked at it was usually 4 or 5 at most during the busiest rushes, our capacity was about 150 ppl and it's hell during rushes

in these scenarios i would tip 15% as i usually do at AYCE places

If you don't like your job or you suck at it, quit. There's no shortage of servers.

Actually none of the above. The answer is,

f.) Just a regular guy who's not a cheapass douchebag like you.

I've tipped 15% when I earned less than $14/hr, I still tip 15% now that I earn significantly more than $14/hr. I DON'T tip in places like Italy, Australia and SE Asia where they have built in service charges/pay their servers well. I DO tip in Canada and the United States where I know servers make at or below minimum wage.

p.s. how is an undertravelled person worldly? I assume you mean "unworldly". A presumption of which, if you spend any time reading my posts, is ludicrious.

p.p.s. how do you figure your pseudo-intellectual diatribes against me constitutes an "unsolicited attack"?

To reiterate,
achiam = cheapass douchebag who needs a dictionary.

Q: Do you guys tip BEFORE tax or AFTER tax?

because if you tip 10% AFTER tax, it works out to roughly 15% BEFORE tax.

Dude, achiam was making fun when he put words in brackets which is clearly evidenced by his second bracketed comment "(baller)" next to $14/hour. Your little attack on him and the link to the dictionary is indicative of your own stupidity, not his.

You pick up on the dumbest shit to criticize people..... there were certainly other comments you could have focused on if you really wanted to argue successfully.

As for tipping -- consider it as part of the waiters wage. It gives you some discretion on how much your meal should cost. The wages could be increased and tipping abolished, but then you couldn't do anything but complain if the service is shit.

Hey you know what?
Go fuck yourself! I'd never looked at your posts, but having viewed them, you're constantly full of aggravation and annoyance!
Its clear you're an insecure person in real life trying to lip off everyone on RS and God knows what other forums you're on.
But you know what? To quote the signature of someone else on this board:
"Arguing with someone on-line is like being in the Special Olympics."

I don't care who you are or what you do or if you're rich (which I truly doubt) or poor.
One thing is certain from your posts.
You're a fucking dick!

It is disturbing to see intolerance against someone's ideology with tipping. There is really no need to start calling somebody a douchebag for not thinking the same way as you do. Intolerance is the 1st step of terrorism or hatecrime.

I tip before tax. People usually use the double or triple GST rule of thumb.

I worked at The Keg during High School/early University and fell into the typical restaurant mentality of expecting tips for extra effort.

I later worked on the organ transplant team and took organs out of dying/deceased organ donors, which directly saved lives and/or brought sight to the blind.

For this I was not tipped, and for this reason I abhor the practice of tipping.
The list of course, could go on.
Fire fighters are not tipped for saving families.
Policemen are not tipped for bringing a hostage situation under control.

I am well aware that tipping is a social expectation, but to follow everyone else blindly would be like jumping off a bridge - cheapass or not.
10% max for me as well. Its not about being cheap.

And to everyone saying that the servers "depend" on those tips. Maybe they shouldnt "depend" on them or get another job cuz getting tips shouldnt be the reason why they are working in that field. Tips is the same as commission, you should be lucky to get it and if you dont then too bad.
