Server Faces Backlash For Explaining Why Tourists Who Visit America Should Always Tip At Least 20%

TikToker Bailey aimed to raise awareness of the reality behind many struggling workers who frequently deal with non-tipping customers despite providing quality service.

In no way did she attempt to call out or criticize individuals who typically don’t tip, but she tried explaining how most service workers can only rely on their tips to make ends meet.

She began the video by saying, “When you go to the USA, and you are a tourist, and you’re not used to tipping, but then you go to a restaurant, and then you see the little tip line, if you put zero dollars and zero cents, a portion of that meal is going to be taken out of the server’s paycheck.”









and blondie in the 2nd video, scrolling her TT is another woke GenZ'er Marxist wannabe

I tip whatever I feel like giving 5 dollars because all they do is take your order and bring food to your table 20% my azz

I knew a woman that had had a very successful and high class German restaurant in NYC (many years ago). She did not allow her servers to wear dangly earrings or nail polish and their hair had to be tied back. She was concerned about what could potentially fall in someone's food and the appearance of cleanliness. Some of her servers thought it was extreme but they made a lot of money because of it! They also had to be polite and attentive. I doubt they referred to their customers as "you guys" (huge pet peeve of mine!)
Though I am not a germaphobe, I cringe when I see these young chickie servers with their long fake fingernails or chipping nail polish, fake eyelashes, tons of makeup and hanging hair (that gets pushed back every 30 seconds), multiple piercings. I also get po'd if I am waiting for a refill and I'm ignored because of texting, chatting with co workers or worse- smoking.
We don't eat out much but do try to patronize places that have better standards and staff than other places.
I'm not a Karen but will tip the minimum when I receive mediocre service.

Tipping culture is gauche and tacky. It needs to disappear. Tips are nothing more than a subsidy from customers to a restaurant with a marginal business model.

Pay your staff well and reflect it in the price of your food. If the math doesn’t make for a successful business, shutter it and try again with a more efficient model.

The waitress can look at you and already know if you're a non-tipper, they're in the back doing rock, paper, scissors to see will have to wait on you.

When we were in Russia, at LEAST a couple times, we were admonished by management for tipping. One restaurant owner was QUITE angry, at Americans who think Russian managers don't pay their staff enough. Honestly, we were pleased that a waitress gave us more than the typical hands off unemotional heartless treatment that we'd grown accustomed to - but - that's how it is. Another time, we tipped a room service person VERY WELL for his prompt, perfect, courteous service - only for the hotel manager to ACCOMPANY HIM BACK to return the money and made him apologize!

Tipping culture is clearly not universal BUT - many countries expect them. Just - not so generous. The equivalent of a 50 cent to a dollar courtesy.

In it's "original" form, tipping was a way to show a server, or staff, that their service was above mediocre, something to be commended for, and greatly appreciated by staff. A small encouragement to continue to provide good service and food. Little or no tip was generally taken as a reason to do better, not as a personal insult that demanded an angry response.

Today it's morphed into an almost coercion, a fear on the part of the consumer that if they don't tip handsomely, there could be repercussions, whether verbal or in the form of tainted food. Managers feel they can pay less assuming the pay difference will be paid in tips. Bad assumption and practice. I'd much rather the managers increase the worker's pay and add a slight adjustment to the bill, and return tipping to it's original intent.

I still tip by the old policy. There are times I do not tip at all if everything sucked.

I tip according to new DEI policy...
I'm white...If my server is a POC, they are my mortal enemy and I don't tip them...


And when I get to the parking lot, I call the police & report them for being black in public...
Hey, I'm doing my part to support & live up to the WOKE agenda...

I was just remembering, back in '72, when I was pumping gas at Hess. We scrambled to wash all the windows and check the oil before the pump kicked off for it's $2 or $3. If you were good, and lucky, you got 25 cents for a tip. Sounds like nothing, but by the end of the day you had enough tips to fill your gas tank 3 or 4 times over at 29 cents a gallon, and have enough for snacks. If you didn't get a tip, it was just accepted and looked forward to the next customer.
