I came across this amazing new series written by servers, for servers! It’s spot on and hilarious! Here is the first episode!
Whether you have waited tables or not, these are just SOME of the things you should NEVER do at a restaurant.
This. This is the reason I work so much. This is why I cry in the shower. I STRUGGLE to put clothes on my daughter’s back and food in our bellies because of THIS. You, are the lowest of the low. Whenever you feel like it’s probably fine to not tip your server, that’s one more bill stacking up because they’re short on money. This is food for the week that our families will go without because you didn’t think it was necessary, even after asking for everything under the sun and receiving it free of charge, mind you. This is one less basic necessity my daughter needs because even TWO more dollars is too much for you. Every decision has a consequence. Servers are paid a base pay of $2-5/hr depending on the employer, so next time you don’t want to tip, regardless of the situation prior to receiving your bill, think about how much you would have to work that week off $2-5/hr to feed your family, not just you. Could you pay your bills based on that pay alone? Could you feed your family AND yourself? Because that’s what happens when you choose to not tip. Please, please tip your servers. Even if it was the worst service you’ve ever received. A 10% tip is a big enough slap in the face, this completely tore me apart. Don’t even bother walking into a restaurant if you can’t afford to tip. There’s a McDonald’s down the street if you’re that cheap.
I would love to work at this place! At the restaurant Ed Debevic’s in Chicago, Illinois servers can treat their tables like crap and still get tipped!
If any of you are Big Brother fans, the waitress is Kryssie from Big Brother Over The Top and this video is actually how she was discovered by the show’s producers…
You sure you don’t need to write this down?
