Let me answer your question with a simple response, there is nothing special!don242 wrote: ↑Jan 13th, 2018 11:48 amServer comes to your table, takes your order, drops off some utensils, appetizers and then brings food. Checks back once or twice to refill drinks or make sure everything is ok. Picks up some of the finished plates, brings a coffee or desert, maybe brings a tray for leftovers, and then brings bill. Good job. They have done their job. Is this not expected of them regardless? Why does doing their job require a tip? Just brainwashed here to think you have to tip like they do in the US.
Again, if someone goes above and beyond, then sure, makes sense to leave a little something extra. But this goes for any job, not just a server.
There are plenty of minimum wage jobs where people deal with the public and are on their feet all day at a high pace, and they don't get tips. What makes a server at a restaurant so special that they seem to think they are entitled to a tip?
Same goes for hairdresser, taxi, bell boy (hotel luggage). They're all doing their jobs, some are even entrepreneurs (hair/taxi). If you're normal pay isn't good enough, sorry customers are not a charity.
