Agreed - problem is, the industry as a whole needs to change - and that's hard...

Yes, if something is hard we shouldn't do it.

All that needs to happen is the government stop letting restaurants pay people less than minimum wage because they may or may not receive an arbitrary amount of money from customers.

People would stop tipping. It would be glorious.

Great leap of logic to extend something being hard to let's not do it.

Of course we should but there will have to be pioneers to start the change and I'm not in the restaurant business so...

So what?

Maybe if everyone just stopped tipping one day things would change quickly! I'm starting that now.

I have a good one to share. We ordered Swiss Chalet for lunch at work one day and the bill was $200 dollars. When i went to tip the driver $2 he would not accept the tip. I asked him why and he said its not enough i should give him 15%. He said to me you can still change it on the bill. I said "NO" you are delivering my meal not serving it to me and he left with nothing. Am I wrong? maybe the tip was a little low but I am not giving him a 30$ tip for delivery.

Something tells me Swiss Chalet drivers aren't really the intellectual wizards we thought they were.

Unless he's smarter than we think - maybe saying this has gotten him larger tips in the past. I met a kid who drove a hotel shuttle at a ski resort once. He told me that somehow the more he berated the rich guests the more they'd tip him. He couldn't understand it either, but swore it worked.

A new one I've noticed is a line for TIP on my receipt at Oil Changers. What's that about? Are they going to tag my account and perform the next job based on how well I tipped/didn't tip? This one make me very uncomfortable.

The one that makes me shake my head (thinking I'm in the wrong business)

You walk out of the hotel with your wife and stand by the curb, the doorman waves a cab up, he opens the door your wife gets in and YOU palm the guy some bills. I always think, what the hell for, but I do it b/c I see others doing it.

$100,000 a year in tips (lol)

Oh and surprise, surprise; more than 50% of people receiving tips cheat on their taxes

https://nationalpost.com/news/the-10000 ... -in-canada


Lawyers are paid by the hour. Cab drivers are paid by the kilometre. But when it comes to waitstaff, there is often little to no rational connection between the services they render and the tip received. Opening a $100 bottle of wine and a $30 bottle of wine requires the same effort and yet at a rate of 15 per cent, one yields a tip of $15 and the other $4.50. The three-second action of a bartender snapping the cap off a beer bottle is expected to yield a tip of $1. Meanwhile, the heavily involved process of preparing a hot lemon and water pays nothing. “It’s simply an irrational custom that is deeply embedded in our culture,” said Marc S. Mentzer, a professor at the University of Saskatchewan’s Edwards School of Business who has written a history of tipping. Icelanders believe in fairies, Spaniards set charging bulls loose in their streets for fun and North Americans tip.
