If any post has ever deserved a reblog, this is it!
It’s refreshing to read something like this from the perspective of a customer, someone who has NEVER served before. And, yeah, there’s a pie chart. That’s awesome, too!
Let’s talk about a basic matter of manners and decency.
Take this scenario: Say I want some pancakes, but I don’t feel like making the pancakes myself. Fair enough — I make shitty pancakes. So maybe I decide, “Hey, I know. I’ll let someone else make me pancakes.” Great idea. So I go to a restaurant, where someone else will make me pancakes and yet another person will serve them to me on a plate. Super.
Then the bill comes. Do I…
A) Pay just the cost of the pancakes, nothing more?
B) Pay the cost of the pancakes, plus a standard tip amount or even a smidge more if the server was super adorable and/or nice and/or helpful?
C) Pay the cost of the pancakes, but instead of a tip, write a note on the receipt in which I make assumptions and express opinions about my server’s personal life?
