    I like tipping. If you compare the cost of a meal in the US vs Europe taking into consideration the GDP per capita the price is basically the same for the meal. The difference is a waiter has no incentive to keep you happy other than not getting fired in European restaurants. And it shows... boy does it show. Unless it was a mom and pop restaurant in Europe the waitress acts about as friendly as a McDonald's employee in a bad neighborhood in the US. Ironically the McDonald's employees in Europe are often far more attentive/kind vs the "nice" restaurants. Luckily Europe is full of small restaurants where your waiter is also the son of the owner and then they might not treat you like garbage. On the bright side of things the small local restaurants actually have eclectic food which can be fantastic as they don't water their food down for mass appeal like in the US. Other than not having to clean up, taking a girl on a date, or when you are on a road trip I don't get the point of eating out in the US...not because the service or the tips those are great.... the food is just utter shit. Even Mom/Pop places seem to only know how to use salt and pepper.... my spice cabinet would shock and confuse them I've got at least 50 spices "There is more than two spices! Witchcraft!"

    Ask anybody who works in the tipping industry and they will tell you they'd rather get tips than get paid minimum wage. A bartender can take home $500 in tips on a busy Saturday night and not have to work another day the entire week.

    As a Brit, fuck the US tipping system. I can't believe they've brainwashed a whole country into thinking it's the customers fault if the company don't pay their employees minimum wage. In the UK we tip if we we're given particularly good service. Surely that's the whole point of a tip.

      You think you are getting away with something but it just isnt true. They add the cost of paying the employee more to your bill. You always pay an automatic tip in Europe. It doesnt matter if the service was shit or great that employee will get paid the same. Unless it is a small family owned establishment the waiter will only treat the customer nice enough not to get fired.

      If I am reading your broken English correctly... you are saying you gleefully watched a pizza delivery person get hurt trying to get you your pizza then refused any common curtsy? So you're bragging about being a stupid sociopath? You know these people remember you and spit in your food right? Retard.

      I've lived in Europe and the US. Your servers are utter shit unless it is a mom/pop place....sometimes (as in the server is the child of the owner thus has a vested interest in keeping you coming back). The price ends up roughly the same... the difference is if the service sucks we can just not pay as much via not tipping.

  • Mysticfox2010

    I tip 5$. I have no idea what % it is. If you did a decent job dealing with my table, you get 5$ no matter if I bought a 5$ burgher and fries (enjoy that 100% tip. ) or 50$ tbone steak (sorry for the 10% tip). Either way, the waiter is doing the same amount of work and I feel that is a decent amount and easy to figure in to the final total.

    Depends on the restaurant. Depends on the bank the machine comes from. Depends. If I dont make good tips my restaurant doesnt make up for it and I've NEVER worked somewhere where they do. Montreal has it's own rules. Were also giving a percentages, that vary, to managers, hostesses, runners AND the kitchen. This usually varies between 3-7% of your tips. So if I make 15% all night I still only leave with 10% (5% tip out) that IM taxed on and THEY are not. Add that up per year, I'm paying to give my money to other people. If there is a transference they should be taxed on it, but it's too complicated to implement so everyone does it under the table. Videos like this piss me off because you dont know until you work in one for a long time. I've worked in 6 over 9 years.

    Tipping is a way to get the consumer to subsidize the workers wages so the owner doesn't have to pay the workers what theyre owed.

    As a mover, yes. Please tip. A good tip is usually a minimum of $10+ with anything more making our day. To be safe, tip $20

    when you said "you're literally tipping 15% to your professor..." that implies that the cost of tuition for every single student every single where is 100k, I don't believe that's true.

  • Seamus McBoon
    Seamus McBoon

    YO, everyone, it's not hard to do mental math for tipping. $37.57 check. 10% is $3, 20% is $6. Leave something closer to 6 than 3 and you're not an asshole.

  • Seamus McBoon
    Seamus McBoon

    I have agreed with every single thing you've said in other videos so far. I heard the first two sentences and I sprang from my chair to slam the space bar. I'm waiting with bated breath, here. PLEASE be logical about this. Please have the best interest of the members of the service industry in mind. Please advocate for tipping.

    • G Nk
      G Nk

      PFFT, I tip well IF the food is great and I plan on coming back (so no spit in my food) or if the service is great. Apart from that bare minimum of 15%. Also if you "forget" one or two of my drinks come bill time you'll get 50-75% of the cost of those drinks added to your tip. #1 best way to get a good tip from me is when I politely comment that "I wouldn't be mad if an extra shot or two fell in my rum & coke" is to make my drinks strong. Again I'll notice and you'll see the pay out, especially if I am a regular.

      Most people here in the west don't understand the simple fact that African economies and countries are developing at an insane rate and a new wealthy middle class has emerged in most middle income countries. Usually allot of people still think all of Africa is like Ethiopia in the late 80's.

    Tipping in China is considered rude tho.

  • masterofthepinkside

    in New Zealand (and most of the world really), we don't tip at all. It's actually kind of weird when people do and often the business just takes it. It really sucks that the USA has that culture though, it's bad for everyone.

    The only time i ever tipped someone was the local kiosk where i was buying alcohol, during days when it is forbidden by law to sell alcohol or it is too early and also forbidden. The owner basically violated the law by selling beer to regulars in that time, plus his kiosk was located near kindergarten and he was not allowed to sell cigarrettes, but i always went there during times of need and he always helped me. Recently he died and kiosk was closed. My only regret is i wasnt tipping him enough.

  • Jan Amo

    I swear to God 2 months ago a page full of waiters got shit mad at me cause I said tipping wasn’t a law and there is no need to do so. They always result to “If you can’t afford to tip, don’t eat out.”

  • Vixx Celacea

    Tipping only makes sense if it's entirely voluntary and it was exceptional service. Literally a small reward for going above and beyond. Being a decent human being and doing your job doesn't need tipping. If anything, waiters feel less motivated to do really good service because they are worried about making enough money. Even when they do fantastic, some people are dicks, some forget about tips, meaning they get fucked no matter what they do. Tipping culture can go fuck itself. Gratuity tax can also go fuck itself. It should be illegal to not know exactly how much you are paying for a product, especially since if product was mediocre and you were fine with it being 12 dollars, but now it's suddenly 16 because gratuity tax and tip. I don't want to feel like my server is worried about paying rent and college loans. I want them to do their job and feel secure in their employment. Service industry is most of the jobs America has anyway, so all of them while they don't need to love their jobs, it at least needs to pay what people need to live some minimum quality of life. Rent, food, internet, phone, electricity, heat, water, garbage, some insurance and a bit to save away for emergencies and a little more to buy like shoes and clothes and maybe go out to eat themselves or a movie. That's minimum quality of life and many don't even get that or get it through severe stress of needing to buy crap food at the trade off of being able to make electricity or rent properly. It's just fucked up.

    I remember when I used to deliver pizza the thought would regularly cross my mind "I get paid $4.40/hr to get in my own personal car, and drive this food 1-10 miles directly to your fucking house in a timely manner, and you give me 0- $3.00 for 1-6 pizzas. Meanwhile it's basically gospel that if a wait person walks their ass 12 feet from the kitchen and sets your food down, they deserve 15-20% because they don't make enough and they deserve it." Never deliver pizzas in rural areas unless you plan on having all your love for humanity fizzle away from white hot hatred.

    • G Nk

      Delivering 4 pizzas isnt any harder than delivering 1 pizza. $3.00s is added for your gas and to avoid spit...but I've never lived farther than 4 miles from a pizza place.

    I will not pay over 15% unless it's extremely outstanding service. Call me cheap if you will, but I don't get tips in my job. Often these waiters are making more than me if they work for a busy place. They should be tipping me. In the city where I live (Las Vegas) people who make tips make much more than people in skilled professions such as mine.

    I visited US last year and I hated it! Even taxi drivers expect tips which is unheard of in UK I remember one taxi driver told us if you want good service from me you better give me this much extra. We were like wtf? Why do t you make the price you want in the first place? It’s like I pay you the price you set up but you refuse to provide the service bcz you’d expect more. So frustrating and stupid! In UK we tip only if we want, and it’s mostly in restaurants. The general practice is only 10%. And when the waiter sees you are about to tip they thank you so much for it. It’s not taken for granted! In taxis it’s more often that the driver will let you off with paying less rather than expecting a tip( many times happens if he chose the route which led you into a traffic jam) We never tip for delivery guys. We never tip to doctors, teachers, house workers, maids, plumbers and so on!

    well the china thing, terrible as that country is in sooo many ways, they DO have a quite serious over population problem. Honestly its something we should all be addressing before nature decide to take 2/3 or 3/3 children born. And we're rapidly approaching that epoch, even though so many like to claim that over population isn't a problem and never could be one.

  • Nick MaGrick

    ive ALWAYS thought tipping was complete and utter bullshit. First off, like you said, people should just be paid reasonable wages in the first god damn place, and not be dependent on customers to split the difference of your greedy ass business tactics. And worst of all, people are demonized for not contributing to this endless cycle of abuse of worker rights, calling our lack of capitalistic integrity a lack of good morals and sense. So most people do it. Seriously refreshing to see other people who have a similar stance on this as me. Ive never met anyone personally who agreed, that I can remember at least. The system is pretty arbitrary too and just governed by social standards, whether they make sense or not.

  • chimyshark

    I hate tipping, it’s stupid. I usually round up the dollar, but other than that it dep on the service. If they don’t bring me enough water, then no tip. I drink a lot of water on my meals and often. I have to call them back over and over. My friends chastise me for undertipping, but why should I tip when I could usually cook better and MUCH cheaper at home? It’s why I hate dining out... first world chef problems. I only eat out to hang out, but tbh I pref cooking for my friends at home.

    'Tipping' should just be in the bill, as it is in the majority of countries. Do you make sure the constuction worker who built your house got tipped in America, do you tip the clerk at the clothing store? Etc? Why do some professions get/use tips and others do not. Makes no sense, tipping is stupid.
