It's not about the service, it's about their wages being fucking shit




Nah, then you are  kinda reinforcing  the notion its OK to give a shit wage to service workers. I'm not mad keen on topping up wages because an employer doesn't want to pay properly.
 
If you get utterly shit service do you still tip? Fuck that.




nah course not

His wife was on the verge of going into full-on labour and he still popped into the shop to cut my hair for my wedding day ffs. 


That's got to be worth the two quid tip surely

I paid £19 for a haircut the other day, the lady was clearly surprised I didn't tip after. She can fack off, I was jobless and my normal barbers charge a tenner so she's already getting a massive tip.
 
If we're following the "well bar staff don't earn much" logic, then they should be giving me a tip on all those occasions when I've paid £4.20 for a pint while being an unemployed.




Did you pay on card?  Surely if you're paying cash you just let em keep the quid?  Not that I'm saying what you should do with your money lol, I get your point in general, it's pretty expensive compared to a lot of places, but I swear barbers etc often charge £9, £14, £19 etc in the hope that people will just let them keep the extra £1.




She was already getting £7 more than my normal barber without doing a better job, dunno why she'd deserve an extra £1 on top of that just because their prices are a bump? Also my normal barbers off my a beer while I have a trim and they didn't

TBH I don't like carrying round loads of change so anything less than a quid either goes as tips or in to the little charity box as standard. £5 notes go to the homeless. £10 notes get rolled and stuffed up my nose

I work as a waiter. All I would say to those who do tip is to check with the waiter who is serving you, where that tip money is going, especially if there is a 12.5% discretionary service charge added to your bill (this almost never goes to the staff.)

You can ask the waiter to take it off and tell them you want the tip to go them instead.

In regards to restaurants not taking card tips: annoying as it is, this is because it is very difficult to split fairly between all the staff that work there. Especially if one part timer who works very little is getting the same tips per month as a waiter working 55 hours per week. It's hard to divide it up especially when people swap shifts etc.

If you tip or not is always up to you but if you've had a nice meal, good service and don't tip, you will probably make yourself unpopular in that restaurant in the future. Again I understand some people don't believe in tipping, but I'm not sure all waiters would understand that.

For me I generally tip 10-15% wherever I go unless service has been unacceptable in which case I will not tip at all. I will also unlikely ever return to that establishment.

I will only tip for a drink if I'm buying a cocktail or something else that takes time and effort, if you do this your next drink may be even stronger.

If I'm in a pub then I may ask if the barman would like a drink, but I would never tip for a pint.

Don't ever tip less than a pound. It looks like an insult.

K thanks bye

Having worked in hotels, bars and restaurants when I was younger I never tip with a card, always cash.
 
For a start the tips end up going to the undeserving as opposed directly to the person who gave you great service, fuck the Albanian pot washers, I'm tipping for the service not how clean my knife and fork is!
 
Some of the larger restaurant/hotel brands deduct a percentage from the tip pool as a handling fee so not all the money you are tipping even goes to the staff.
 
And tip money paid from a central pool into wages, then becomes tax deductible.
 
Bottom line, I'm tipping for the service I receive and I want that tip to go straight into the hands of the person who has provided that service.

I'm happy for the tips to be shared with the chefs and pot washers. I don't want it going to anyone who wasn't present in the building at that moment in time.

I agree with this bit, however in practice it's not that easy. For example when I worked in a bar, all tips - cash and card - went into a central pool and were dished out to staff equally depending on the hours they'd worked that week. They took a fee for accounting, which was bullshit, but whatever. Anyway, I thought this was pretty much the fairest way to do it because why the fuck should the wait staff get all the tips? There's chefs, bartenders, pot washers all contributing to the service and it was always a massive fucking effort to get wait staff to put their tips into the central jar. Like they were the only ones who were working their arses off.
 
Our potwashers weren't albanian tho

so you don't think having clean knives and forks is part of the service?

"take your own" means take 20-30p here

I've said it before down south and the cheeky cunts have taken the price of a drink for themselves. Never again


Down here that's "a drink for you" all day long.

Yeah. 100% if I'm saying one for yourself, that means a full drink
 
If I tipped 20p it would be to make the point that their service was PROPER shit.
