Re: Why are black people such bad tippers?
i drove cab for several years, and OP is right.

it has absolutely nothing to do with how much they made, because when you're hauling around professional ball players... and they stiff you on a tip... those guys make hundreds of thousands of dollars minimum... yet the white construction workers with always give you an extra buck or two... and i'm mexican.

it's that sense of entitlement thing.

if you want racism to go away, just start acting like everybody else. nobody owes you a damn thing.

Bad tippers don't realize that things can come back to bite them in the ass.

They don't think 2 or 3 steps ahead. These folks have your food in their control.

They don't make that connection when they are hanging over the toilet bowl at 3 AM that morning, vomiting their guts out.

One of the many reasons I always go above and beyond the 20% with my tips. It's insurance.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I'd like to go quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Not screaming in terror like the people in the back seat of the car he was driving.

And another thing: always be polite at the drive thru window.

Back in the day, if I was out with friends at a bar, and we made a late night food run thru Taco Hell or Burger King, I would never order with the other drunk idiots in the car, because they were always trying to be comedians with the person taking the order at the drive thru.

I would wait til they got their food, and we parked in the lot to eat.

I'd then walk inside and order my food. The guys in the car would ask why didn't I just order with them at the drive thru.

I would then explain it to them... and I'd get that deer in the headlights look from them. But I think it registered with them.

The guy or girl taking your order is making minimum wage, and if you decide to get cute with them, they can do all sorts of heinous stuff to your food.

Something to think about.

Re: Why are black people such bad tippers?
used to be.. but for you dumb asses...those servers are only paid about 3/4 bucks an hour if even that much by the company's they work for, the rest is suppose to made up from tips..i don't know how these company's get away with doing this... they should have to pay those people the nation average wages at least.
If nothing else to make up for the many black people who always dinning an parting, But on the whole rarely leave a dime..If they had any self respect they would be ashamed..
And NO i have not ever worked a job where the hourly wage was compensated because of tips.. know lot of young people who have though.. and this has always come up..
 Quoting: Fuhrer D


It is obvious that you have an agenda. It is also obvious that you aren't able to hold a conversation without being vulgar. But this is common among people that lack the skills to debate effectively.


Most states tipped employees are paid 1/2 of the minimum wage.

And in a typical shift they work two hours out of eight prepping for that night's customers or cleaning up and balancing their books when it's over.

So that's 8 hours of minimum wage working, 6 of them with tipping customers.

ETA: And that's not counting the tips we have to give out to the bartenders, hosts, etc IF we want good service from THEM next time.

Re: Why are black people such bad tippers?
so lemme get this straight. you white folk are mad at black decent people for not tipping when its your white, tightwad boss paying you all less than minimum wage? while he is paying you all probably 3.75 and hour and he is playing on the golf course at some fancy members club but you are mad at God's chosen people for not tipping. HMMMMMMM!

it goes to what ive been saying all along. when it comes to money whites are extremely stingy. i mean whites are sooo tight up when it comes to money that if you shove a lump of coal up their asses you would get a diamond necklace. but hey its comes back to white privilege... norespect
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6966312





Do you know what happens every time the minimum wage is raised 15 cents or so?

The first place you see it is at McDonald's. Your $1.25 Cola is now $1.35.

Not to mention out of that small increase the govt gets a few extra pennies of tax out of the employees paycheck and a few extra pennies out of the employer on his payroll tax.

And as a former small business owner, I was the LAST to get paid-and that wasn't very often. I was at my business- NOT the beach.

Working 70 and 80 hour weeks, knowing that you most likely won't get paid but you'll have damned happy employees carrying home $100+ bucks of tip money after a 6-7 hour shift?

When balancing your payroll accounts and seeing that the majority of your employees don't even cash their measly payroll checks of $150 for a couple of months says something.

So to hell with it. Whatever Walmart didn't put out of business, let it go ahead and take the rest,write off all their expenses and call it a day.

The jobs aren't coming back. Ever. Anyone who things they are are in huge denial.

Oh and anyone that leaves your hotel maid a tip for good service.. make sure you give it to the maid you want to have in person.. Most of the black maids go into the rooms before the maid assigned to clean it does and takes/steals the tip money.. this goes on ALL the time everywhere.
 Quoting: ceawaves



wtf

Please tell me that's not true? Can you expound on this?

Now this is back in the mid eighties when I managed a hotel in the Mid-West....

But I was in charge of the housekeeping division aswell as the other departments. Luckily I had a GREAT Housekeeping Manager- RIP, BJ- so I was never that involved but I can't imagine those girls doing that.


The department was made up of about 50% Indian, 25% black and 25% white.


The only two incidents I still remember make me laugh:

1. A Hispanic maid accidentally spilled a bottle of very expensive woman's cologne while cleaning the vanity area and panic'd that she'd be fired so she filled the remainder of the bottle with water.

I couldn't stop laughing when BJ brought her to my office.

Hey, accidents happen. That's why we have insurance.

The guest came back to her room with a newly wrapped bottle of the same perfume and a note of apology written by the maid.

Those were some GOOD girls and I can't see them doing that to each other.

Boy, those were good times. Of course Regan was in charge and we knew we were safe.

Sigh.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8767790



I think that was true at one time- not even that long ago.

But I don't even think this younger generation of teenagers knows that it is considered proper to offer a seat on a bus to a standing elderly person or a pregnant woman, to hold open the door for the person coming in behind you, or much less to use statements such as, "May I please have $40 of gasoline?" instead of, "Give me $40 of gas."

Very sad.

It could be a regional thing, though.

I still can't get over how kind people are to each other here than in Vegas.

The other day a woman backed her car out slightly after I had started to. No big deal.

Would you believe she parked her car, came after me and apologized, saying she hadn't seen me and she was very sorry.

Kids at Walmart (YOUNG kids-5 or 6 years old) are constantly saying "excuse me" if we're turning corners at the same time and miss a collision.

Teenage boys will stop and offer assistance if a woman is having car trouble.

Well, I can't read 15 pages of this thread today because I am freaking buried at the office. BUT, I'm gonna put my 2 cents in and agree with the "black people are terrible tippers" peeps. And the black people I deal with via my company are almost exclusively no-tippers. Not just bad, no tip. And these people are spending an average of $900+ with me. Won't tip my staff. Now we pay our staff well so they don't live on their tips, but they work their asses OFF for all of our clients. No tips from blacks. We try to spread the black parties around amongst the staff so nobody gets them all the time.

It's cultural. It is that they are not taught to tip. When we are making reservations with them, we always tell them about tipping, and they are all like "what?" I think some of them don't even know what a tip is.

 Quoting: ACOG



I said in my initial post it was only once that I was treated really badly by 4 angry black women and that about 90% of the blacks I served treated me well.

Of course, it was in a very nice showroom on the Strip where Gladys Knight was the headliner.

So naturally you had people attending at high ticket prices for a great show. She's the last living legend of Vegas besides ugly Wayne newton, in my opinion.

You know, you get to where black, white, green or purple you can see attitudes beforehand and pretty much know.

Yes, I've been stiffed by rude whites but never treated so horribly by ANYONE as that one group.

As a matter of fact, they were scowling like Michele Obama does most days when I approached the table and their looks didn't change one iota throughout the show.

So Michelle, if you're reading this- all you have to do to stop that image you refer to us perceiving as having is SMILE!

When it comes to catered events, tipping isn't necessarily standard protocol. If people do, they're going a step and above to do so.

And it's funny how people want to talk about "rude" customers, acting as if they never come across snobby woman of their own ethnicity treating them like trash. Why the selective observations?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8766230



A catered event?

This was a show where tickets started at $75.

The standard protocol for a $10 drink is $1.

You want to eat olives,crackers,maraschino cherries, etc. in addition because you couldn't pull your worthless ass off the machines to go eat( as planned) before the show?

That's GOTTA be worth a couple of bucks extra.

But for me to normally work my a## off during a show for $150 cash and end up taking home a buck or so because of four, bitchy black women?

As for your comment on "selective observation" I suggest you work in such an environment for less than two weeks and I know you'll see first-hand what I'm talking about.
 Quoting: Miggy


Not quite sure I'm understanding what you are saying here... $150 isn't bad money for one-night's work of a few hours. Do a few extra bucks more/less in tips matter?

Hi, Faith.

I guess I didn't explain myself very well.

We worked 7-8 hours and during that time we had the opportunity to make tips for about 2 of those hours.

The rest of the time we spent setting up linens, glassware, working in a 100 degree bar station that barely had room for the 8 girls and two (sometimes only 1 bartender) which had to serve a showroom that seated 800- constantly full.

Afterward we cleaned, washed, put things away (like the damned olives

We were allowed to only enter the showroom at certain times so as not to affect the atmosphere, climb flights of stairs carrying a 30 pound tray of drinks in heels, crawl on the floor even, if we happened to be anywhere near the stage so as not to obstruct the views, collect payment and give the right change by holding a flashlight in our mouth pointing towards our bank.... that's only the beginning.

In fact, a night never went by that girls weren't bursting out crying backstage, glass were breaking all over the floor, people were paying for a $2 drink with a credit card that we were forced to use on an antiquated system that didn't work half the time.

Most girls went out and drank after work. I went home and started writing a book in order to take out my frustrations. It became a hit on my blog and other Casino Presidents and employees were constantly coming in to meet me.

Even several guests would call me over, saying they had read my blog from whatever state they were from and wanted a picture of me.

I couldn't publish that book then, but I'm thinking of doing so now.

Gladys won't sue me. Harrah's treated her worse than they treated us.

But back to the money. Yes, it was good money IF you were a good waitress. But one mistake (like giving back too much change in the dark or dropping a hundred dollar bill as you walked away and it actually COST you to work that insanity.

On the night of the 4 angry women, I made $2 from the table I served next to them. It just wasn't worth it to keep going back. It pissed off the others who would have liked to be served every time they saw me.

I was always kind to every person in that place and that's the truth.

And the majority treated me kindly back.

After taxes, had we made no mistakes and after tipping 20% to the bartender we usually took home about $100 cash. Or about $15 an hour.

Yes, it was good money but I fractured an ankle once and wasn't compensated due to something in the contract.

Two managers died of heart attacks in a 6 month period.

I'd never do it again. It was worth every penny for the $$$.

If you want I'll post one of my night's journal entries. I tried to keep them humorous. It's the only way I stayed sane. gaah

Good seein' ya.
