Most dishwashers dont even speak english, let alone make the same amount of money as someone who does. Neither do busboys.

I see busboys taking tips sometimes, but im not that far in my roseatta stone program to say "thats not for you" in spanish. El dinero es.....something.

I found the hardest part of waitering to serve all the food or drinks "all at the same time" and removing the plates "all at the same time", that is if you have a larger table and you're working all by yourself or a small table with lots of plates and things.

The actual waitering, asking people their order, if they would like their drinks refilled (before their glass goes nearly empty) , checking if everything is allright is the easiest part. On days were there was plenty of staff to help eachother with quikcly seving out the food/drinks and taking back the empty dishes things were damn easy.

and a giant LOL to the stupid bitch who gave me rep saying im a "racist". I guess I cant call the truth as it is, that 95 % of busboys ARE mexican, and 95 % of dishwashers ARE mexican, but me stating that simple fact means im a racist.

God some people around here...

Well yes most of them are foreigners (immigrants). Overhere all of the dishwashers throughout the years I worked in a restaurant were either from Africa (Marroco, Nigeria I believe etc.). and later on we got east europeans (Poles). Most of them spoke atleast a little Dutch, be it quite badly in most cases, only a few didn't spoke any Dutch at all and could only speak (some) English and their native language.

But I think that "you racist" comment is directed at you saying to a Mexican bushboy "That's not for you" (which would be true if you didn't/don't tip because of somebodies ethnicity).

NS intends his tip to be for the waiter/waitress who took the order and gave the food, not the guy who clears the table. If it's an area with communal tips, it doesn't matter. If tips are not split, it does matter.

Monster_user;4930245When tipping is routine, this is what you look at.

1. If the service is bad, the the server will not last on minimal/no tips. These weeds out poor service, and promotes good service.

2. If you don't want a server to return, just don't tip the server.

3. The customers that don't care about service, won't tip, thus there is no need to provide them with service.

4. Customers who are too cheap for tipping, will likely not be among an establishments best clients, thus they can safely be ignored.

Yea, this seems to be the general point of tips. When my dad worked as a waiter in his college days, they would usually serve the tippers better than those who didn't (This was a community restaurant, most of hte people were common visitors). Generally I don't tip bad waiters, but I try to leave some cash for those who did well. I mean $2-3 never put me back, and it at least keeps the waiters moving on. Plus, I guess I see a bit of my dad slaving away during his college days in some of them.

the tipping culture isnt like toronto asian escort the USA (where it toronto escort seem unofficially manditory and people stand there blank staring waiting for tip).Here is pureully optional toronto asian escorts and given to someone who gives exceedingly good service and is not miserable! standardised or below toronto escorts average usually get nothing.
