No Tip For Server? – Waiters and Waitresses Do Not Cook Your Food, Do Not Punish Them for Waiting

If you have not read about this situation at all here is the information you need to know:

A waitress in New Jersey was not given a tip for a $112 bill, which was for a table of eight people. Instead of leaving the tip portion of their receipt blank, the customers wrote “LOL” and to the right wrote “1 hour for food” which I would assume means they waited too long to tip. The 20 year old waitress at D’Jais Bar & Grill was waiting tables for the summer to pay for school at Rutgers University.

Now I will not be a hypocrite and say I do not get mad at bad service at a restaurant but I do not punish my waiter or waitress for things that are out of their control.

Unless you see your waiter/waitress doing double duty in the kitchen do not be a jackass and not tip.

And if they are doing double duty, give them a pat on the back for me.

I also understand that communication comes into this situation.

Did the waitress let them know of the kitchen being behind? I do not know. I was not there.

Even when my service is deplorable I leave at least $1. Because people have bills to pay.

Your waiter or waitress is a person too and they are not always putting on their best face or having a good day.

Have some compassion

I am very forgiving. Some people are not this nice.

I’ll admit I get angry when tips are required and the service was bad (tips are required in a lot of restaurants in NYC)

But I still keep my composure and give the waiter or waitress their fair share of money.

Don’t treat the person doing their job as a slave.
