Some people need to simmer down..

Some of you that keep commenting and emailing me need to simmer down. I know a lot of you get very worked up about this tipping issue.

Here's how it is, I was a server, many who come here are servers and this site is called Tip Or Tat. If you don't like what we say, then click your mouse to another site! There are no hidden agendas here. I don't understand the need to use profanity and such...so if you don't like our "lowly server" posts, move on.

As I said before, I'm a big believer in karma. And all of you haters out there are just proving my point that how you treat a waitress says a lot about who you are! Look how some of you have been treating this site, and I haven't even served you!

I love hearing different viewpoints, but the profanity is unnecessary. Or should I say, it is quite lowly of you...

Great job, keep up the good work. Honestly I enjoy (and respect) the perspective from somebody in an industry completely different than my own.

Sad that people would feel the need to attack you on your own blog. I mean, if you go to a blog called "Reasons Baseball is Boring," would you attack the blogger for not liking baseball? Duh.

Thanks for the fun blog. Personally, I am an EXCELLENT tipper and a great customer. If I am in a pissy mood or a huge rush, I don't go to a busy restaurant.

One request of servers...
If you are swamped, please let me know that upfront. I will wait patiently for drinks, food, etc. But don't just snip at me for asking for more tea or asking for service. I don't know what is happening "backstage" unless you tell me.

Waitressing was the hardest job I have EVER had!!! I'm a huge believer in tipping well. My husband was a cook and now manages a restaurant so he too never short changes a server.

If I had enough tips for every time I was talked down to, yelled at, and needlessly blamed for things while I was a waitress I would be rich.

I don't have a problem with waitressess or even tipping IF it's deserved. The problem is your attitude telling us what we should be doing. Tipping is voluntary...or used to be. You sem to think it's your God given right.

If you want just servers to comment write that down. All of us doesnt think the same. You will not see me here anymore. Now I am a little disapointed in servers point off view (if you dont think like us leave us). And than you want tip.I dont think so.

lola2020, you're a real middle-class kinda bitch. You've never had to work so hard for your money and you don't respect those who do. Find another blog to get pissy on!

T.o I.nsure P.roper S.ervice

I always heard that you should tip your server prior to the meal... What you tip will insure the amount of devotion your server give to you. I never understood though how one is to tip the server if they really have no idea what the bill dollar amount will be... ??? Just a thought

If you have never waited then you just can not really understand what hard work it is. It takes a lot for me to leave less than 20% for a tip. It's really pretty easy to tell a good, but overworked, waiter from a server who's just an ass. And for the love of God, don't take the food quality out on the staff!

Rant done...like the site btw =)

People are weird, aren't they? Just do what you're doing and pay them no attention.

You wouldnt want to be a waitress in England or France or the rest of Europe, they hardly tip at all! Like when I was in Paris, my friends told me to leave like a coin it was enough and here in the UK, people don't tip at the bar, restaurants or the spa!

Well I did the waitressing thing and was married to a bartender (TG that part is over). I know what tipping means, and I surely make a point about letting those who go with know about it.

I think that it should be mandatory that people work a customer service job for at least two years of their lives. Perhaps then they would be more understanding and would be better customers, whether restaurant patrons or retail customers. What a win-win situation! Things would better all around and there would be no argument.

As it stands now, the people who have been servers usually overtip and are almost never the last ones to leave... but that's not telling you anything that you don't already know!
