My mom was a bank teller during the day and worked at an Olive Garden at night until I was old enough to where she could go back to school. One day(I'm like 8 or 9) we're out to eat and I snap my finger at the waitress....my mom reached across the table and slapped the shit out of me. Only time she ever laid a hand on me and was the only etiquette lesson I ever needed.
I'll tell you what I tell everyone I work with:
Take the guarentee. If they really thought you were that exceptional, they'll tip you over.
If churches still wanted to be tax exempt, they could even if you revoke their automatic tax exempt status. They would just have to file paperwork and keep open books like every other charity in the US.
I honestly hate tipping bartenders. Not because they don't work hard or anything, but because if I'm at a bar, I generally take up about 4 seconds of your time per order (I'll get like a bottled guiness or guiness on tap).
I end up giving an extra buck as a tip. That time involved per dollar earned is crazy IMO.
I bartend at a restaurant
I actually make cocktails and still serve you as a waiter would
That said over tipping your bartender is your best friend. It's how I never have bar tabs at some places I go
Oh I know. The problem is that I live in a college town, so they serve too many kids/hour and have too many bartenders to actually appreciate who tips them.
If you're making martinis and whatnot, then yeah you definitely deserve a nice tip. I just hate the idea of tipping a bartender for popping open a bottle of beer.
I can respect that.
If it's slammed and they go out of their rotation for me though, thats a whole different story
Definitely - that's above and beyond/great customer service. I'd tip well in that case.
tipping at the bar depends on the bar... you are right
a fine eating place where the bartended makes a drink for you and caters you is well worth the tip..
having some barfly crack open a budlight and expecting a buck for a 2 dollar beer is stupid.
Where in the hell are you finding 2 dollar beers?
Bar tipping is totally different.
Never was shy to get bartenders good tips during college because some nights were just pure insanity.
Ended up a regular at one place in particular aaaaaand it was awesome. The line could be three/four people deep across the entire bar, and all I had to do was make eye contact with my bartender and give him the nod with a corresponding hand signal to indicate how many. The faces on most of the other people waiting to get served were priceless as he'd serve drinks to me over their heads. That kind of service is impossible without overtipping.
Hell, I know a place that has 50 cent drafts during happy hour. It's a good thing I don't drink much anymore.
I remember the LSU/Alabama game of the century.
Walked in after work, skipped the line of people waiting to get in. All the bartenders saw me walk in and stopped and handed me a beer.
People were like "WTF?? Who the hell is this dude?"
One of my bars has $1 dollar WI breweries on Monday, including bottles. Makes Tuesday's pretty goddamn rough.
Ahh that explains it, you're in the middle of no where
I go to 1 bar unless I'm forcefully dragged somewhere else, I get free budweiser and fireball shots, I pay 'cost' for hopslam and any nice bourbon I use for old fashions, and if I buy rounds of shots for people they'll split them and discount on top of that. All of that started from me going there after work when the weren't busy and leaving 20 for 12 dollar tabs, tabs went to 8 and I still left 20, now tabs don't exist.
Madison (where I live) is like 200k people I think.
But WI is the most beer-friendly state in the world. Basically no alcohol tax. Really straightfoward and cheap liquor licenses.
Keeps bar prices down.
If you can't tip someone 20%, you really shouldn't eat out.
That's awesome. Liquor licenses are a bitch in SC just bc it's bible belt and you better bring lube and your favorite toy if you wanna try and get a sunday license in Charleston, and iirc there are still places in SC where you can't even get a sunday license.
Please, enlighten me on how all southern baptists are hypocrites. Which is what you are implying with your blanket statement.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Yeah I have family in Tennessee and when they first moved there, the look on their faces when they couldn't buy beer on Sunday because it was illegal was pretty priceless.
Now they wised up and buy all their booze on Saturday.
So that sucks.
"“What they didn’t show is the money that I left and that we all left on the table,” said Bell. She says she left $6.29 on the table and her credit card was also charged the tip amount. Everyone else at the table also left tips in cash."
Gonna straight call BS that they left tip money in cash. Waiters/waitresses love cash tips, and no way would anyone ever leave a cash tip, then write on the receipt that you aren't going to tip them.
I believe her credit card was charged though, since it's a required fee to pay.
On Wednesday, the pastor reportedly contacted the Applebee’s location where she worked and demanded that everyone involved — including the managers — be fired.
