Waitress served party that tipped $4,400. It led to her getting fired...\n\nI know things have changed, but I'm more traditional on this. Waitresses make minimum wage and go through the highs & lows. I don't like customer service, so by all means keep your tips. I make a higher hourly just like the cooks, dishwashers, prep etc. At one restaurant it was discussed and soon it's tip the cook, the bartender, the dishwasher. Why serve customers then? You're the one who has to deal with the BS.\n\n\nYep just get up from your table and go up and pick up your own food and refill your own drinks. I'll tip to avoid having to do that.
