    Post How much should you tip the Dunkin Donuts cashier or the guy in the pizzaria?

    Everywhere I go I see a tip cup.

    I overtip everyone but its funny how I have to give a $1 to a bartender unscrewing my beer cap and placing the bottle in front of me but not for a gasoline attendant coming out in the dead of winter and pumping my gas.

    I give the Dunkin Donuts people my change after I buy breakfast...usually bout 50 or 60 cents...but only if they get the order right, those people are either deaf or stupid they always get it wrong.

    From one fo the greatest movies of all time:


    MR. Pink:
    I don't tip because society says I
    gotta. I tip when somebody
    deserves a tip. When somebody
    really puts forth an effort, they
    deserve a little something extra.
    But this tipping automatically,
    that shit's for the birds. As far
    as I'm concerned, they're just
    doin their job.


    MR. BLUE
    Our girl was nice.


    MR. PInk
    Our girl was okay. She didn't do
    anything special.


    MR. BLONDE
    What's something special, take ya
    in the kitchen and suck your dick?

    They all laugh.

    NICE GUY EDDIE
    I'd go over twelve percent for
    that.


    MR. Pink
    Look, I ordered coffee. Now we've
    been here a long fuckin time, and
    she's only filled my cup three
    times. When I order coffee, I
    want it filled six times.


    MR. BLONDE
    What if she's too busy?


    MR. Pink
    The words "too busy" shouldn't be
    in a waitress's vocabulary.


    NICE GUY EDDIE
    Excuse me, Mr. Pink
    but the last
    thing you need is another cup of
    coffee.


    .

    MR. pink

    These ladies aren't starvin to
    death. They make minimum wage.
    When I worked for minimum wage, I
    wasn't lucky enough to have a job
    that society deemed tipworthy.


    NICE GUY EDDIE
    Ahh, now we're getting down to it.
    It's not just that he's a cheap
    bastard--


    MR. ORANGE
    --It is that too--


    NICE GUY EDDIE
    --It is that too. But it's also
    he couldn't get a waiter job. You
    talk like a pissed off dishwasher:
    "Fuck those cunts and their
    fucking tips."


    MR. BLONDE
    So you don't care that they're
    counting on your tip to live?

    Mr. pink
    rubs two of his fingers together.

    MR. pink
    Do you know what this is? It's
    the world's smallest violin,
    playing just for the waitresses.


    MR. BLONDE
    You don't have any idea what
    you're talking about. These
    people bust their ass. This
    is a hard job.


    MR. Pink

    So's working at McDonald's, but
    you don't feel the need to tip
    them. They're servin ya food, you
    should tip em. But no, society
    says tip these guys over here, but
    not those guys over there. That's
    bullshit.


    MR. ORANGE
    They work harder than the kids at
    McDonald's.


    MR. WHITE
    Oh yeah, I don't see them cleaning
    fryers.


    MR. BROWN
    These people are taxed on the tips
    they make. When you stiff 'em,
    you cost them money.


    MR. BLONDE
    Waitressing is the number one
    occupation for female non-college
    graduates in this country. It's
    the one jab basically any woman
    can get, and make a living on.
    The reason is because of tips.


    MR. Pink
    Fuck all that.

    They all laugh.

    MR. PINK
    Hey, I'm very sorry that the
    government taxes their tips.
    That's fucked up. But that ain't
    my fault. it would appear that
    waitresses are just one of the
    many groups the government fucks
    in the ass on a regular basis.
    You show me a paper says the
    government shouldn't do that, I'll
    sign it. Put it to a vote, I'll
    vote for it. But what I won't do
    is play ball. And this non-
    college bullshit you're telling
    me, I got two words for that:
    "Learn to fuckin type." Cause if
    you're expecting me to help out
    with the rent, you're in for a big
    fuckin surprise.


    MR. ORANGE
    He's convinced me. Give me my
    dollar back.

    Everybody laughs. Joe's comes back to the table.

    JOE
    Okay ramblers, let's get to
    rambling. Wait a minute, who
    didn't throw in?


    MR. ORANGE
    Mr. PINK


    JOE
    (to Mr. Orange)
    Mr. PINK?
    (to Mr. PINK)
    Why?


    MR. ORANGE
    He don't tip.


    JOE
    (to Mr. Orange)
    He don't tip?
    (to Mr. PINK)
    You don't tip? Why?


    MR. ORANGE
    He don't believe in it.


    JOE
    (to Mr. Orange)
    He don't believe in it?
    (to Mr. PINK)
    You don't believe in it?


    MR. ORANGE
    Nope.


    JOE
    (to Mr. Orange)
    Shut up!
    (to Mr. PINK)
    Cough up the buck, ya cheap
    bastard, I paid for your goddamn
    breakfast.


    MR. PINK
    Because you paid for the
    breakfast, I'm gonna tip.
    Normally I wouldn't.


    JOE
    Whatever. Just throw in your
    dollar, and let's move.
    (to Mr. Blonde)
    See what I'm dealing with here.
    Infants. I'm fuckin dealin with
    infants.

    The name of that song is

    Why shouldn't they be tipped? Your bar-tender unscrews a beer cap, and gives it to you and you feel the need to tip, but you wouldn't tip someone at Dunkin Donuts who turns around, puts a donut in a bag and gives it to you? (BTW, who do you think got up really early and baked those donuts??) Also, the gas attendant on the highway, who comes out in the cold to pump gas in your car?
    IMO, it should be more like Europe, where tipping anywhere (incl. bars) is NOT the norm...only happens when you get exceptional service!

    just a way for the owners to screw the workers some more - they'll just say now you're getting tips, we don't need to pay you as much.

    I just had this discussion at work.
    What do you guys tip the guy who delivers the food? Do you base it on distance? on the cost of the food order? or (like myself) I have a standard tip.
    The last guy that delivered food gave me the most evil look when I tipped him. I mean you could taste that look.

    Yeah thats their job, thats what they get paid for, to put my donut in a bag. They didn't do me any favor, they didn't go outa their way for me. A bartneder gets a big tip from me cause I want something from them that they didn't have to give me... A stronger 7&7 or a Long Island that'l put me on my ass. I tip the delivery giy well cause I know thats how they get paid, they get like 4 or 5 an hour plus tips. And if he's real late with my food he doesn't get as much (still tip him good, just not as good)... Thats how it works. And whats up with the tip cup at Subway, thats even dumber than the cup at D&D's.
