Casually Explained: Tipping

In this episode, I go around to subscriber's houses, forcing them to watch ads and taking their spare change.

Streaming Weekdays 2pm-8pm PST (but not this week I'm on a trip and giving those tips)

    The worst that comes out of mandatory tipping is fake smile service. Being over the top nice and helpful till your jaws break from cringing. As soon as you have finished your meal the bill is on the table and the smile turns into a pay me-fuckyou-nowleave .. restaurant experience in the US is terrible ( yes from europe, where we enjoy long sessions and gladly pay a good tip for the great atmosphere and chillness of the restaurant)

    Here in Brazil we don't have to tip HOWEVER there's the famous "10% of the bill". So sometimes the waiters ask us about it, and then we pay it to not be rude. The good side about that situation is that the waiters who ask about the 10% are usually very nice, so it's worthy!

    A co worker of mine in Tennessee opened a Scottish style bar/restaurant. Similar to Europe. No tax added to the price. It’s included. NO tipping is the policy. He and all the employees share the profits. Very little turnover there.

    First time I've seen almost all negative comments on one of your videos. Hey, next time, just tell the server you're not going to tip up front, so they don't feel the need to give you good timely service. Most of them feed themselves with the money you do (or do not) give.

    If you expect a tip, then it's not called a tip anymore ... Copy the rest of the world and build wages into the prices so employers can pay them a fair wage. How stupid is this system, I dont tip a rude bartender 15-20% WTF. Make the prices higher I dont care and give the employees more salary. Why would you tip someone 5 dollars to pour a drink into a damn glass?! Dont get me wrong, I love giving tipps and I always do, but I want it to be up to me.

    The percentage system of tipping 15%, 20% added on to your order is just a new way for employees to milk more money out of you. You should only be tipping $3 MAX for each order anywhere. If they complain then it's time to talk to your employer or find a new job.

    Eh I’ve been done with tipping for a while, it’s really gotten ridiculous to me. I don’t have to tip based on the cost of my food, anything I tip outside of my bill is enough, it’s optional to begin with. Also I still have to tip on bad service? I don’t think so😂. I’m done feeling pressured, so I just won’t at this point.

    Tipping isn't right or wrong, it's just different. And weird. My personal policy is that if you don't have enough money to tip, you don't have enough money to eat out. But I'm a red blooded American so that's just part of my culture. I've also logged the better part of a decade working in food service, and for a good part of that I paid my rent entirely off of tips. Real tax savings there allegedly wink wink. Minimum wage is a bad thing for reasons I'll let John Stossel explain to you if you disagree. But with the system the way it is, personally I think tipping culture does encourage better service, while at the same time, the default minimum tip of 15% screws that up, as so many people tip bad service out of guilt or obligation. I tip generously, but I don't leave a dime if the service was bad. It gets complicated when the service is amazing but the food is bad or cold etc, because now a nice night out is not so nice, and now it's up to me to make one of two choices, neither of which I'd like to make: Stiff the server, or talk to the manager. Yikes. A moral dilemma is not what anyone wants for dessert. So, back of house: If you fuck something up, remake it. Or heat it up somehow. But don't send me a cold French Dip with cold au jus. It's so trivial to fix, don't act like you don't have a fucking microwave back there. And the hot fries just tell me that you mistimed the dish. I'm not retarded. Make an effort. I'd rather wait for something good than have something shit five minutes sooner. You'll get a fat tip. All you have to do is what's printed on the menu.

    Tipping is a dumb system, but if you’re in the US PLEASE tip. It’s extremely dumb sure, but you tipping little or not at all doesn’t hurt the restaurant nor will it destroy the system. All it does is keep the waiter from making money. You’re not “fighting against tipping culture.” A waiter is making 2-5 an hour and they wasted their time on your table when they could’ve been serving another table that would’ve tipped (specially if the restaurant goes by rotation). Man I’ve even had times where I’ve stayed an hour or two after I originally got cut just so I don’t have to rush my table to leave and then I barely make any money from it

  86. That's him officer

    That's him officerPrije 20 dana

    @DracoHexG I’m not disagreeing that the system is flawed, what I mean is that until the system changes you should follow it because when you try to fight against it by not tipping you don’t actually do ANYTHING to change that system you just hurt a server and nothing else

  87. DracoHexG

    DracoHexGPrije mjesec

    Doesn't this just prove the point? What you do at your job should be meet with a fair pay, I get it if the business is barely starting off, you give them a chance to pay you little+ tip, why would a well established restaurant ask that from it's employees, personally I think the ideal way should be to get paid fairly(at least 13/hr) and tipping is completely optional cuz you shouldn't have to NEED the tip to make ends meet

  88. Mike Henny

    Mike HennyPrije mjesec

    It's a catch 22. If you don't pay the tip, and every restaurant pays their workers accordingly, then they'll have less employees, because they're not gonna pay more people minimum wage, putting people out of work. Or keep the tipping system, and have more people work, just struggling to get by. It's bullshit

    Just before the pandemic I was in NYC with a few friends of mine (all from the EU). We sit down for lunch and we see in our final bill that tip has been added to it. Fair enough. Whatever. We pay what the receipt says (again, there was an item marked as "tip" on it) and we still get mean looks from the staff. None of knows what's going on or what to do at that point. I'm still confused about it tbh. Were we supposed to tip on top of the tip they added themselves and if so, how much? 🤔

    Yeah they don't want to raise the minimum wage something about businesses affording it and prices going up. And the argument against universal healthcare is stop looking for handouts. But at this point universal healthcare feels like a pipe dream.

    In Hong Kong you tip in advance. I found that worked well in LA when I order a taxi to the Dr. for mom and her caregiver. The tip in advance told the driver we recognized he'd probably be stuck outside waiting for the return call. Then mom tipped him. He lives near and is always available. That worked. In Canada, service in the west sucks across the board compared to the UsA., where I finished growing up, yet Canadians act like French waiters; EXPECTING A TIP no matter the level of service. Pubs are the worst, unless we have Australian wait staff!!!
