To all of you people who don't tip in restaurants, or don't tip a full fifteen percent : What. The. Fuck. Is Wrong With You? Seriously. Are you all fucking stupid? Can you count? Oh, you can? Well then, let me think, hmm, oh yes, I think I know what the problem is - YOU'RE ASSHOLES! Yes, that's it, malicious, unappreciative, unfeeling wanks who have never had to work a day in their lives! And I mean WORK, with your hands, on your feet, lifting, carrying, sweating, burns on your fingers, dishpan hands. Not sitting in the school your daddy paid for you to go to, or on your ass in a nice suit staring at a computer screen all day. And I know, everybody works hard. But servers are generally paid the “minimum wage”, which is by no stretch of the imagination a living wage. (Not that I believe any of you non-tippers have ever tried to live on a minimum wage job. Lucky you. ) We are paid that amount because it is expected that in addition to our small paycheque, we will have received a minimum of a fifteen percent gratuity on every bill we give out. This is not a “bonus” or “extra money”, it is a necessary part of our income, which is why we must claim it on our “income tax”. Get it? Yes, it's a stupid system, and I would much prefer to simply receive a larger wage instead of tips. Then people like you couldn't stiff me. But that is, unfortunately, not the way it works. You got crappy service? Leave a smaller tip. But if everything was good, then don't you dare screw with my grocery money. Don't like it? Get take out, because I have better things to do then serve your cheap ass.

Server not Servant
