Isn't the reason we work for employers the ability to have a planned level of earnings?
I hate it when people complain they got a shitty tip from a customer.

Actually it's because minimum wage for waitresses and people and jobs that get tips is dramatically reduced. In PA a waitress can work for as much as $3 an hour, and the rest is supposed to be made up in tips. We get cheated out of a lot of money but stiffs who don't tip. ;P

Especially for those people who are just plain nasty and difficult and you work super hard to make them content and then they just walk out... or worse they complain that a decent waitress didnt do a good job usually because of something the kitchen staff messed up on :/

However, tips are not mandatory. That system is flawed and since you volunteered for this job, knowing that it is flawed, you have no grounds to complain.

Change your workplace. Waitressing is an entry level position, so try some other entry level job that offers more secure earnings.

If enough people leave the waitressing field, the pay scale will be re-approached in order to attract people to fill the hole that was left.

Bottom-line, complaining about a voluntary act by a customer in a job field that one willingly sought out, is really really self-centered and just dumb.

sometimes that's all you can get... :I and people are SUPPOSED to leave a 15-20% tip, no its not mandatory because its rude to go "did you leave a tip?" but it is like a social standard... sorta like those people who go in the 10 Items or less line with 20+ items...

So then this job field is intended to be a transition towards something better? There is always self-employment ;)

I think it was the fast food market that really killed the whole tipping thing. But again, if you are comfortable with working at a job that has uncontrollable outliers for earnings then you shouldn't complain. You can complain to the business you work at tho, since they are in charge of that flawed system :B

regular money per hour, tips

yeah, it is a messed up model! I suppose at some point, waiters and waitresses were making BANK when they were paid normal wages and they were tipped. So then employers stepped in and created a more balanced system that we see today. Only NOW people tip less and less often with the economy the way it is and the people suffering are the employees.

I always hated how my employers would tell me to refuse tips from customers. Since I worked alone all day, I'd just accept em ;P

I don't like the system either, but usually it pays decent... changes by the night; sometimes you get $100+ fora 4 hour shift, but other nights you get maybe $20... usually it balances itself out to a rough average

I thought this thread was "tripping" and got exited.

That being said, i used to work for tips and always tip big now because of it
i hated it when i delivered like nine pizzas halfway across town and get tipped  [cen] ing pocket change
always tip big folks

My brain pattern set does not make a reply is still more work to be mean?Are you saying we define ourselves through our interactions and expectations of individuals and think this board and it is harmless, cheesy fun in the second girl who has done that has any comments on like knights of the prisoner in which you have, or are at the same in spirit. But i'm staying here for semantics.
