  • Tip via Cuteness Factor...

    Went to a nice dinner tonight with my 16 year old niece; she was to provide the tip after the meal. I notice she lays out 3 dollars, then a few minutes later another 3 dollars. Know why?

    She said the service was OK, but the tip was because the college-type waiter was cute enough!

    This is not what I am trying to teach my niece by having nice dinners in very nice places!

    That's really mean...what she did. That tip should've been based on competence.

      It's mean to give someone three extra dollars? It's her money, she can do whatever she wants with it. If she wants to give a waiter more money because she enjoyed looking at him for an hour, what's the problem?

      I tip 15-20% based on service, but have certain times given someone more money if they're cute and flirtatious. IMO, if they go the extra mile to make you feel welcome, they deserve it.

        He didn't say anything about the waiter being extra welcoming he just said cute. If you think people should be rewarded based on cuteness I hope you're real cute. Personally I think it's mean to dismiss people based on their appearance.

          I never said people SHOULD be rewarded for being cute, just that if a person wants to give a waiter a bigger tip, why does the reason matter? As to me being cute, you can decide that for yourself, but I se no reason why that makes any difference.

          You're right, but that doesn't mean looks aren't considered, especially when it comes to first impressions. Nobody is being 'dismissed' here, just rewarded for having what one individual perceieves as good looks. It's the same premise behind tipping a dancer at a strip club.

            I'm very strict on how I tip. When I go to get my hair cut, I generally tip 4-5 dollars

            When I got to restaraunts, I tip based on service. There is ONE key factor that will greatly minimize a tip. If they ask....."Are you still working on that?" As if I'm nawing on a bone or something. I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT when someone asks that when Im eating. then they get a flat 3 dollar tip, (I've been known to not tip at all based on that alone) but the promptness according to crowd size is a major factor in how much I tip. I leave 15% gewnerally, I think that leaving anything more than that would only be inappropriate because I think there should be limits to curtiousy. I mean once it goes up to 20 %, on a $50.00 dinner thats ten bucks worth of tip, so I spent $60.00 there needs to be a limit.
            Oh... Oh... I know you di-int!

                  I usually just tip by doubling the tax. Tax here is 9.25% so if tax was $5.15 I will usually leave about $10.50.

                  Once I asked a server for A1 and he said they didn't have any, but 5 minutes later I look up and here he comes jogging from the restaurant next door w/ a bottle a A1..now that is service, he got a nice tip that night.

                    I usually give a tip from 20% and up regardless if the waitress is cute or not. But service means everything.

                    BTW does it really matter if someone wants to increase the amount of the tip based on looks?

                    It's mean to give a person more if he or she is
                    good looking?

                      I tip soley on service. I was refered to as the customer from heck (she used a different word) by my younger sister because when I go into a restraunt I expect good, friendly, fast and smiling help. I do not care if the place is busy or if the wait staff has had a bad day. I expect service and if you want or expect a tip then you better best be serving with a smile, and be quick about it.

                      One thing that really burns me is if a person or group gets served before me when they were seated after me. That is a major tip burner in my book.

                      Oh and looks or sex of the wait staff has nothing to do with the tip I leave.

                        Klarman,

                        I don't agree with that at all. What if they ordered a large tossed salad, and you ordered a plate of baked lasagna? Obviously thiers will finish "cooking" before yours. You can't really expect them to make another customer wait for their meal because yours took longer to cook, do you?

                          LOL I can understand that Jay I have no problems there I am talking like a cooked dinner. Like I order a steak and the people seated after me get their steaks before me. That is what I am talking about. Sorry I did not make it clearer.

                            I tip strictly by the quality of the service. If they do a poor job, the tip suffers. And if they do a great job, the tip gets larger.

                            Asking me "Are you still working on that?" doesn't bother me. The thing that to gets me is when you pay the waiter/waitress and they ask "Do you need change?". YES I need change! Then I will leave the tip on the table. They can take the extra 15 seconds to bring me my change and then let me leave the tip.

                            We had something happen on Labor Day weekend that blew our minds. We drove out the night before dove season opened. We found a mexican restaurant to get some dinner. The food is good. Service was good. The waitress doesn't come back for us to pay, but the hostess does. She takes our money and never comes back with our change. The meal was about $42. 15 minutes later (we had to finish our beer), we have to flag her down and ask for our change. She has a deer-in-headlights look on her face and we see her go find the waitress to get the $18 from her.

                            On the bright side, we got plenty of dove the next morning to cook up for Labor Day.

                              I waitressed for many years and I know for a fact I was a very good one too. It showed in my tips that I brought home. I never gave poor service and was always pleasant with my customers.

                              It was also a nice feeling to have customers come in and request to sit at my station. I had one man who always sat at my station and used to tell me I had the most beautiful eyes and prettiest smile he'd ever seen. He always left a generous tip and said it was the smile that brought me extra.

                              My favorite Italian restaurant has no female waitresses. All very handsome waiters, but one that really stands out. When me and my female friends go there we always request to sit in his station and he always gets a generous tip. He's young, he's buff and he's hot as hell, and most importantly, he's extremely pleasant and very nice. We never have to order dessert, as he is what we are all sweet on.

                              So what it all boils down to is this: Give good service, get good tips.
