I give god just the tip.
Mr. Pink up in hurrrrrrrrr
I tip very well regardless of performance because I'm good like that...
But how much do you tip God?
If I get get good service, I tip more graciously. If I get bad service, I tip the min 18%.
Not sure where all this server entitlement is coming from.
It reminds me of one of the last lines in Fargo: "all these killings and for what, a little bit of money" - in this case, pastor was exposed after check pic went viral and the waitress coworker lost her job, it's all trending on twitter and for what? $6!!! Yeah, six lousy dollars lol

Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
I usually walked out with 18% - 20% after tipping the house 4% of my total sales. 1% to busser, 1% or more to the food runner, 1% to the bar adn 1% to the hostesses. I didn't get to decide how much to tip them, it was built in to the payout at the end of the night.
Another example. I just got back from the Philippines. My wife told me not to tip more than 100 Pesos, which is the equivalent of about $2.50 US. I thought that was crazy, but its what was customary. Even though I wanted to tip more, it wasn't the custom to do so, so I let my wife take care of the tipping. Places in FL are starting to add a mandatory tip of 20% to any size party, and when I've gone to BBall games, there is a 21% service fee that doesn't include gratuity.
A server is more likely to base service off the size of the bill. A small tip on a $20 bill, or even a big tip, is inconsequential, if you have another table that has a $150 bill. Sorry, but whether you leave me $2, or $5 isn't going to hurt my tipout or make my night, although it was nice to get $5 on 20, but the difference between spending 90 minutes on a table that will tip between $15 - $30 and having to tip out more to the other staff is worth more of my time. Plus if you can really impress the table with the higher ticket you might get up to $50. Not only that but tables that order drinks, bottles of wine, apps and steaks, typically tip better than someone ordering soda's and burgers.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
What the hell does a vitamin drink for the elderly have to do with anything?
I hate waitstaff like you. Every table should get attentive service because that's your job.

People with your attitude don't get served. I have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
and I should be treated the same flying coach as people in first class, but that's not how the world works...

Women can be pastors?
Was 'tip' formed from an acronym of 'To Insure Promptness'?
I don't eat at low-end restaurants very often.
Then you expense it and your company covers the top so you shouldn't care.
Did anyone watch the video of her "preaching" at the bottom of the article? I think her church might be a haven for people who are touched. She keeps pacing back and forth at the front reciting the same thing over and over (she is shouting into a microphone...looks like her gathering is small enough that she could just raise her voice a bit and everyone could hear her fine...), another woman is babbling and cheering at random times, and another boner is on his knees, looking for spare change in his seat.

Ha! I was wondering this because it struck me as funny that a bill with an automatic 18% gratuity was only $34. I figured they all went into Applebee's, ordered 10 milks and called it a meal.

Not all that related, but a friend of a friend owns dozens of homes/rental properties in town. Over the years, he's had seven "pastors" rent from him. He's been forced to evict six of the seven due to either non-payment, trashing the properties, or harrassing neighbors.
Oh, those 'religulous' folks. Such saints.
Someone on tBB posted that the average pastor makes 87k and doesnt pay taxes. If this is true, what pieces of shit.
the detroit "pastor" scam......everyone in Detroit has "ties" to a church.....and illegal activity
plus I hate the automatic 18%, but I usually give 20% so the staff loses out because Im not leaving additional tip on top of tip.
The Great Lakes Shipping Company in GR adds 18% to parties of FOUR...without telling you.
You mean where food service workers are actually paid fairly?
The pastor claiming that she was embarrassed and humiliated by the name exposure needs to look in the mirror. I doubt the waitress would've posted the receipt if the pastor hadn't written that "note" to go along with the receipt. Also isn't there something in the Bible about helping the poor and looking out for your fellow man?
None of this is really the fault of the paying customer. If you don't like having to deal with that stuff get a different job. It's pretty simple.
I never understand it when servers get all butthurt about bad tips. The entitlement among servers is ridiculous and probably plays a role in why some people don't tip very well.
