Tip Shaming?

http://globalnews.ca/news/3539922/custo ... ions-grow/

So apparently tip shaming is a thing now?

Lol @ restaurants having 20, 25 and 30% as preset tipping options. Any establishment that has the balls to do this can go f itself IMO.

And I never understood why women with tight tops and short skirts get better tips. Like I understand it, but just seems so unoriginal to give a good tip because the waitress has all of her goods on display. How does that entitle them to a better tip?

I give 15% for standard service and 20% for exceptional service. I can’t think of a situation where I’d give 30% unless the waitress is tossing free drinks my way all night lol.
deleted to keep the site family friendly. Was about copping sick fadez.
Well there's no sick fadez left to be copped now that the regimen cannot be admired in all its glory
RIP sick fadez.

yeah a lot of them now have 18% instead of 15%.

the best part is the tip calculation button is based on the BILL + TAXES.

you don't tip on taxes folks.

ridiculous.

I tip 15% pretax. The machines with the preset 18%, 20%, 25% is absolutely ridiculous. I still can't believe how only 10 years ago the general standard was about 10% and 15% was for exceptional service. With minimum wage going up in Ontario and as the costs get passed to the consumer I'll be tipping even less since they are now being compensated more for walking 15 feet to deliver my food from the kitchen to the table.

Frankly they can tip shame me all they want if they feel like I'm not being generous enough. It really isn't my responsibility to fund their lifestyle. That's their employer's responsibility.

Yep. No tip on taxes. But it seems that the restaurants haven't gotten the memo.

Many of the joints I go to now have 15%, 20% and 25%.

I remember when it was 10% for OK service, 15% for good service and 20% for exception, or if a really fancy restaurant.

The $ button is your friend, folks. Consider the preset % buttons will have a "convenience" premium built in for laziness in not calculating and manually entering the tip one wants to give. They'll probably catch on and get rid of that $ button. Then I'll pay the bill by machine and tip in cash separately.

With minimum wage at $15 there should be $0 tip.

Tipping started in States without minimum wage controls where servers get paid $2-4 an hour, and yes thats a 2017 wage. Thats where tipping is "the thing".

I avoid restaurants in Canada like the plague. Double the price for rubber food in most establishments, save a select few every city has, and tipping is obligatory, eff that.

Now they expect mandatory tipping on a $15 wage? lol Thats stripper money!

The only place I really I tip well, again depending on the service is Mandarin. Last week I gave $15 on a $50 bill. It only happened once where I have nothing.

I get the whole showing T&A, it sells which is why men are more generous tippers. Again, it all boils down to the service.

What I don't get is and this surprised me last week Osmow's added tipping percentage on their terminal? Sorry this didn't work.

Min. wage for hospitality (servers) isn't, nor will it be $15. It's going up a little bit, but certainly not up to $15! I think it's around $11.50 or so?

Hospitality (servers) jobs are in the 'General Minimum Wage' category

Liquor Servers minimum wage going from $9.90 per hour to $13.05 per hour

All this right of entitlement BS started with tip cups being put out at the cashiers in a food court.
If the restaurant owners want to increase the income of their staff, take it out of their bottom line and accomplish that through any other means.

This is where China is better - no tipping or taxes. In fact some local peeps find it insulting or immoral to accept tips for jobs they are paid to do... One foreigner experience. He gave a tip to a chic at a restaurant and she ended up chasing him to the parking lot to personally hand him his tip back saying "It's not right. I'm already paid to do my job."

Wow, what a concept!! *shock*

My friends and I once tipped a waiter. Waiter came back with the tip money and told us to keep it because it wasn't 'enough'. Bill came to just under $100 and we tipped $15

Damn straight. Watch the cost pass thru to consumers. $15 big macs?? Hell to the naaaww. It wont pass if corporate lobbies have anything to say about it.
