there are places which actually add a mandatory tip on the bill, i am sure i seen a program on it....i was thinking, why should we be forced to pay...a tip is for excellent service etc and should not be expected, With my various allergies and the few places i can eat at due to them, the ones i have been have generally gone out of their way to make sure i can eat it, and if not, alter it so i can....and that is when i give a tip, if a place is stubborn and doesnt, then id prob just walk out - but no tipping should not be expected!

A tip is not a right but a priviledge, so when they specifically ask me for a tip, I tip -10%.

What's the source that claims it is a hoax ?

I posted the first part showing that it was photoshopped, from SmokingGun, then the rest of the story came out, not more came out that it was faked by a guy who works at the bank, and he did the photoshop edits to get others to post the 'truth' about his bosses.

The manager of the restaurant has been on several TV shows talking about how this was a hoax, and how they actual left 20% tip.

Being an asshat isn't a right either but it doesn't seem to stop you :)

Not you. The server. The server should stereotype their customers' behaviors for better odds on making more money overall.

They interact with the customer multiple times per visit. You can determine a lot from your first and second interaction.

I guess I misunderstood your original post them. You seemed (at least from my perspective) to be talking about the server seeing the same customer on different visits, not multiple times in the same meal.

I dont tip at all. Period.

No need to, because they still get paid at the end of the week.

Tipping is just courtesy. If I get bad service, then I don't tip. I've tipped 100% one time.

I definitely don't leave a tip if the restaurant has gratuity already.

The tip system in the US is what's insulting. It's your employer's duty to pay your salary, not the customers'.

That said, that's no reason to be an *******. Give no/low tips if you want, but writing that stuff on the receipt is completely unnecessary.

^^^^This times infinity. I just wish this would finally work out here because the cost of resturants is getting out of hand. Often times the tips are no where near deserving.

In England if a tip isn't left, it isn't frowned upon. So why is it in the US? You shouldn't have to or be pressured into leaving a tip ffs!

That being said, there was not need to the horrible comment after.

I'm not sure how it works in the UK, but in the US there is a separate lower minimum wage for tipped employees so they're dependent on you to earn any kind of decent wage. I agree that it's stupid but I don't think just not tipping is the answer. It is unfair to expect someone to work for you for ~$3 an hour.

I take it you live with your mom or something? I work 50 - 55 hours a week and take 15 credits, guess what, I cant tip. I will find a way to give a tip if the service is truly out of the ordinary, but the few times I even have the money for something outside of fast food, I barely have enough for the meal,

And ... there's your problem. Fast food is QUITE A BIT more expensive than making your own damn food.

Average fast food meal cost = $4 to $8 per person.

Average home made meal cost = $2 to $5 per person

Stop the fast food, all you're doing is killing yourself and your wallet.

Want to save a ton of money? Invest in Top Ramen. Want to add a kick to it? Buy some chicken and some spices.

Thats why we have a minimum wage structure in the UK to at least make if a somewhat low wage at least a standard across the board for all employees.In the US the employers who do this are just using the lack of a workable law as an excuse to pay as little as possible to their employees and cream in the profits of slave labour.Paying a decent livable wage should be mandatory, not have people reliant on tipping to survive week to week.

Tipping is irrelavent to the bigger problem and is down to customer contentment/satisfaction and should not be part of the equation,you get bad service you dont go back or you give it bad online reviews.Making an employer resposible for paying a living wage is the thing thats missing from the solution to the economics of the problem.

      Apple announces more money for Californian housing crisis
      by Paul Hill



      Apple has announced that it is allocating more than $400 million towards affordable housing projects and a selection of other programs that will assist homeowners. The $400 million is the amount allocated for 2020 alone but over several years is looking to spend a total of $2.5 billion. Over the years, with tech firms based in California, housing costs have risen making it expensive to live in the state.

      One of the projects is a housing development in partnership with Housing Trust Silicon Valley which will create 250 new units of affordable housing in the Bay Area. Another project is the creation of a mortgage and down payment assistance fund as well as an affordable housing investment support program. Both of these initiatives were created with the help of the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA). Finally, Apple is working with Destination: Home to build affordable housing units for Silicon Valley’s most vulnerable.

      Commenting on the news, Kristina Raspe, Apple’s vice president for Global Real Estate and Facilities, said:

      Apple first announced the $2.5 billion housing investment in November 2019. Over several years, the money will allow for the establishment of a $1 billion affordable housing investment fund and a $1 billion first-time homebuyer mortgage assistance fund with a particular focus on essential service personnel, school employees, and veterans.

      In addition, $300 million in Apple-owned land has been made available for affordable housing, there’s a $150 million Bay Area housing fund in a public-private partnership with Housing Trust Silicon Valley, and finally, $50 million going to Destination: Home’s effort to address homelessness in Silicon Valley.

      Elon Musk defies lockdown order and asks to be arrested
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      In defiance of local county officials, Tesla is asking employees at its Fremont car plant to return to work. Last week, Elon Musk, CEO Tesla, planned to resume operations at the site, but Alameda County health officials stated that the factory didn't meet the criteria for reopening and must remain closed.

      Musk then threatened to pull the company headquarters out of the state in addition to filing a lawsuit against Alameda County seeking injunctive relief. This scuffle comes amidst the gradual reopening of businesses across the U.S., as the coronavirus pandemic has put millions of Americans out of work.

      Referring to an order by California's governor permitting manufacturers to resume operations, Tesla said that as of Sunday, previously furloughed employees are back to work. The email titled “Furlough Has Ended And We Are Back To Work in Production!” informed workers that "very detailed plans" have been put in place to ensure their safety. (via Reuters)

      Steven Mnuchin, U.S. Treasury Secretary, also encouraged the state to do whatever is necessary to ensure the reopening of the Fremont car plant.

      Elon Musk threatens to pull Tesla factory out of California
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      Tesla hoped to resume operations at its Fremont car plant on Friday; however, Alameda County health officials said that the factory doesn't meet the criteria for reopening and must remain closed. Now, Elon Musk, CEO Tesla, is threatening to move the company headquarters out of the state in addition to suing the county. He wrote on Twitter:

      Musk also said that Tesla is filing a lawsuit against the county, and actions taken by local health officials were contrary to "the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!”

      Musk had hoped that the factory, which was closed in mid-March due to the coronavirus lockdowns, would be restarted with 30% of the normal workforce. Tesla manufactures around 415,000 cars yearly at the Fremont plant, and moving operations elsewhere would be an arduous task. This threat comes amidst the firm's desire to increase the production of Tesla Model Y, which has been the most profitable car in the firm's history.

      A spokesperson for Alameda county stated that its health department is recommending the automaker to wait at least another week before resuming production (via Reuters). Meanwhile, local infection rates would be monitored, and the necessary safety productions can be discussed.

      Tesla plans to resume operations in Fremont factory on Friday
      by Usman Khan Lodhi



      Tesla is planning to resume operations at its Fremont factory on Friday afternoon, according to an email sent to staff by the firm's CEO Elon Musk. This comes amidst the California government's initiative to move to a "Stage 2" COVID-19 response, which involves reopening of several lower-risk workplaces. However, Alameda, the county where the factory is located, has extended shelter-in-place orders until the end of this month.

      As per the county regulations, manufacturing operations are not permitted to be conducted routinely. Thus, as of Friday, operations would be restarted at the Fremont factory with 30% of the normal workforce. An internal company mail read:

      Musk stated that employees that don't feel comfortable returning to work aren't necessarily required to do so. Ray Kelly, a spokesperson for Alameda County Sheriff's Office, assured that California's plan doesn't supplant the county plan. After restrictions were placed to curb the spread of the coronavirus, the Fremont plant halted production in mid-March.

      Musk has been increasingly vocal in his opposition to lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, calling them a "fundamental violation of the Constitution." He also said that if brought before the U.S. Supreme Court, these restrictions wouldn't hold up.

      Alphabet's Verily establishing Covid-19 testing sites in California
      by Paul Hill

      Image via Wikimedia Alphabet’s Verily has announced that it is working with the California Governor’s office, federal, state, and local public health authorities to create testing sites in the Bay Area for those at high risk of contracting Covid-19. It is also building an online tool which will help health workers figure out who is infected and needs treatment.

      The online test, which is part of Project Baseline, is now available to Californians that are interested in getting tested for the illness. Right now, the availability is very limited with testing being offered to Californians located in Santa Clara County and San Mateo County. The firm has said that it’s working quickly to expand testing in every way that it can including with added test sites and expanded eligibility criteria.

      Discussing the reason for beginning at the sites it has, Verily said:

      As time progresses, Verily hopes to expand its testing access across more areas in California. It said the program is still in the early stages and that it’ll take time to asses operations at pilot sites before it rolls out elsewhere. If you’re in California, Project Baseline recommends that you follow advice from the CDC website.
