Today's blog is about tipping at a restaraunt. Do you leave a tip?
The standard tip is 15% So basically if you spend $100 you owe another $15 to the waitor/waitress for bringing you your food and drink that you are already paying for.
For me I always leave a tip and I always leave the standard 15%. I'm one of those people who have to get out my calculator and figure it just to make sure I'm not cheating them. LOL.
But really it's not fair to the customer. The restaraunt owner should pay their staff a fair wage and then that wouldn't be put off on the customer.
At my favorite steak house that I go to all the time. One of my kids gets off the kids menu and his plate is $5.99 and my other kid gets his off the regular menu but he gets a small steak and potato and his food is $9.99 so together their food comes to approx. $16
With appatizer, salads, drinks our bill comes to about $75 and my tip comes to approx. $12 So my tip will almost pay for both of my kids to eat. AND I am already paying the restaraunt $75 to eat there.
So although I always pay the tip and plan to keep eating at my favorite restaruant LOL I don't see the fairness in that cost being put off on the customer. I think the restaraunt should pay the staff a proper wage.
