A tip is not just money, but rather a gesture of thanks

Posted on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 1:37 PM

I am writing this bitch in support of the folks who serve your/my ass everyday. From your local coffee shop to the fanciest restaurant in the city, these workers do the same repetitive task of getting you what you want whether you treat them like garbage or not. Not all people that work at the local doughnut hole are stupid, 90% of them are very intelligent people. Many are struggling through to pay for school, and some are trying to keep a roof over their head by being your little bitch for 8hrs a day, 5 days a week. Some have children, some come from hard lives, and some are going to be doctors someday. At many of these work places these employees are treated like children by management, have no real rights in defense of their employment, and make the most minimum wage that an employer is legally allowed to pay. (With no benefits) The most disrespectful thing you can say to the person serving you your morning fix is "here is the exact change". Everyday! If you don't like the service mention that to the management so the issue can be fixed. For the other 9 people working in the restaurant, those nickles and dimes, quarters etc.. do add up. And to those who don't tip, even though the person serving you maintains a smile and wishes you a great day, you are still known as the cheep ass dick/bitch that is too good to tip. I'm poor as shit, but always leave a little something extra for the one serving me. At least they aren't the guy standing out front with a cup and an arsenal of insults.

And god please, don't make an order at the counter when you are on the phone. The host/hostess is a human being not f*cking order box at the drive through.

In all, please treat those who serve you with respect. A little "change" can make a difference. —Have a Great Day
