20 is the new 15

Ok so please forgive me if I offend anyone but I feel that I need to vent. For those of us who have been living in the 21st century for sometime, know that if your server does a really GOOD JOB you should leave a really GOOD tip!! Just a little piece of info... in the state of Utah, we servers do not make minimum wage like in other states. We make $2.17 an hour.
Come on guys, if you take your children out and they leave the biggest mess ever, tip accordingly; and if you use a gift card, tip off the TOTAL amount not just the amount you were "charged". Tip your server 20% if you received good service. There is no reason not to. If you weren't happy then don't, but at least let them know and see if they can fix it! For all of my fellow servers out there, you know what I'm talking about. And to be completely honest, if you can't afford to leave an appropriate tip, go to Wendy's!

I remember thinking the same thing when I waitressed! However, $2.17 is OUTGRAGEOUS!!!!! Do tips even make it worth it???? YIKES! That is terrible!!! BOO UTAH!

We always tip good because of you! Even if our server sucks, I can't bring myself to tip less than 15%. How cheap are people who tip only their charged amount and not the whole price! So do they not tip if their gift card covers the total? Probably the only place worse to be a server is Utah County!

I remember Dan saying the SAME thing when he'd get home from serving. I wish everyone in the world would read this post. I agree! By the way, thanks for being my WW buddy!

I would just like to say that I totally agree with you! Don't let those lousy bad tippers get you down! Gotta love serving :)
