I am OVER the whole tipping thing! NO ONE gives me a tip for doing my job! As far as I'm concerned if you're earning a wage, you don't get a tip! Waitstaff/bartenders DO NOT earn a wage so they get a tip! I can barely afford a 45$ haircut and I'm sick of feeling obligated to throw another 5 or 10 bucks at them! Delivery people are PAID to deliver the expensive item I've bought, I'll tip if I have stairs or some
other complication or extra care needs but if delivery is included or I'm already paying a delivery fee, I don't want to tip! I will tip food delivery people a couple bucks. Company owners need to quit being so damn greedy and pay their help better! THEY should give them bonuses based on sales.
But, tipping the assistant to the Hair Dresser, that was good for a laugh.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as delivery people go, isn't delivery their job? I get just a little bit upset when I'm told that I HAVE to tip a delivery person, ESPECIALLY when I've ALREADY paid a DELIVERY CHARGE!!!
Have you noticed also, that tipping a waiter/waitress has gone from 5-10% 50 to 60 years ago, to 20-30% today? Not that I mind tipping for great service, I don't. But I'm getting damn sick of people EXPECTING to get tipped just for doing their job. There's and old saying "If you don't think you're paid enough, quit, and go elsewhere" this ALSO applies GOVERNMENT WORKERS, especially. If you [government workers] don't like your working conditions, QUIT AND GO TO WORK FOR A CHANGE
All I can say is that you have to be effing kidding me! We should tip the trash collectors, postmen or women, ambulance drivers, firemen, police officers, teachers, doctors, paramedics, the cashier that checks you out in the supermarket....and on and on and on!
Sorry. Don't these people already get paid to do their job????? Hairdressers' assistant? Guy that brings the towel?
What about me? Remember to ALWAYS tip your baker!!!
Tipping is suppose to encourage better service. Better service...better tip, yeah ? Doesn't seem to work very often. Many think they should receive a tip just for showing up to work....how did this evolve ?
IF employers are too cheap to pay their employees what they deserve to be paid, they shouldn't expect their customers to pick up the tab and the employees shouldn't be expecting them to either. Tipping is BS. In England, you don't tip. How on earth do all those waiters, waitresses, hairdressers, etc. make it? They get better pay. Yet the companies who employee them are still profitable.
But if you think you should tip and that a person is a jackass and a tightwad if they don't tip, consider this: Say you buy a meal and drinks for two for $100. Do you really want to spend $15 or $20 more just for the person who took your order and served your food? If you do, why? Because your "supposed" to? Because it's tradition? Because you'll feel guilty if you don't? Because they expect you to? It's not like they spent the whole time with you taking care of you while you ate. If that person's service is so valuable, why doesn't the employer pay him/her more? Because the employer doesn't respect its employees enough to pay them a fair wage. So why should you?
