somebody threw a hotel pan at a waiter. Tip your wait staff damnit!

edit: to add to this whole thing, i just wanna say i've noticed that some people have been talking about tipping cooks. it would be nice, but cooks do what they do mostly because they love what they do. if you don't love the atmosphere as a cook, you're going to quit. lots of waiters don't love what they do, and are not the type of insane person like myself who thrive off the fast pace and verbal abuse

There are two scenarios:
1) I DID MY JOB AND still failed.
2) I DIDN'T do my job, and caused someone to die.

If I do my job and someone dies, it sucks. But it happens more often than not. If I am negligent, then not only will I not be paid, but I'll probably be sued and or prosecuted. I have to carry malpractice insurance to make 12 bucks an hour, do you have to carry any sort of liability insurance to serve me dinner?

If you read what I said, I pretty clearly said that if a server does there job, apologizes for mistakes(theirs or not, the customer doesn't care about excuses), doesn't make excuses(again, no one cares why it took me 22 minutes to drive through traffic 15 miles to their emergency, so no one cares why the food was late. Just say, I'm sorry, that is all people want to hear) That and provide good SERVICE(you're a server, after all) then I'll tip.

But if you can't do YOUR job, maybe YOU should stay home. If a server provides crappy service(it has nothing to do with the quality of the food or my personal taste) then they get a tip. Sure, if I like what I got I'll prob tip BETTER, but I'll gladly tip 15-25% for GOOD SERVICE.

I WILL NOT tip someone to provide me service worse than what I get at McDonalds.

Minimum wage for tipped employees varies from state to state. In NY its $2.13/hr

i would kick someones ass if they threw a pan at me. i loved my job, but would have lost it for that.

also i'm one of those people who loves the fast pace and yelling.

this. people should get tipped, i definitely disagree with you on the side that bad service in an establishment where tips are expected deserves absolutely no tip, since the way i look at it when you go into a restaurant you pay your bill to pay the cooks and the business for providing service and tip because you essentially "rented" a server for a while. however, there's no excuse for someone (no matter what their job is) not doing their job to the best of their ability.

and yeah there was a lot of yelling and cursing and a visit from the manager about the pan, but the guilty guy apologized to the waiter and cooked him something nice out of the walk in after service was over so no hard feelings at the end of the night

I think what they were implying is that even if you are a crappy server, they should make that much with tips(because according to this logic, we tip people for not doing their jobs, now).

I get the logic of the argument, but I have seen servers that I expect don't make the federal minimum wage....

its something like that in SC too. its also seasonal. summer time i make bank. winter time i starve. so i have to get fat in the summer to make it through the winter. and people think its ok not to tip. i miss waiting, but i'm glad i don't have to deal with any assholes.

most servers deserve their money. i will say that i have known a few ****ty ones. but honestly how many times do you go out to eat and get ****ty service? if its often at all, then maybe its you being a dick.
