So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

I use to make $30 an hour waiting tables…y’all are literally trying to get us paid less crying about this.

Get off that mindset that it’s the public who need to stump up extra. It’s not us that should be boosting you to $30/hr. You should be getting a decent pay from your employer, not the generosity of strangers.

It’s not generosity, they literally served you with the understanding that you would pay them based on how good their service was. Maybe get off that broke mindset and stop complaining about having to pay people for their work.

Why does the value of my meal determine how much I should pay you for bringing it over? If I take an hour to eat a salad then maybe your tip would be $3, if I take an hour to eat a particularly fancy lobster then maybe it’s more like $30. What have you done as a server to justify the extra $27?
