Random Servers And Customers Reveal Worst Tips Ever Given To Waitstaff

  • (#13) A Spicy Situation

    From a deleted user:

    A woman at this table decided she wanted to put some pepper on her salmon. But unlike a normal person, she unscrewed the cap of the pepper shaker to sprinkle it on. Long story short, she spilled almost the entirety of the pepper on her meal. But it was somehow my fault for how full the shaker was. She demanded that her salmon be remade and expected it to be comped. I talked to my manager and he said that it was her own damn fault for spilling the pepper and they weren't going to comp it. I made him explain that to the guests to avoid any conflict. The tip wasn't 0, but the woman was part of a party of 12, almost a $200 check, and the tips from their separate checks added up to a whopping $11. I had to split that with another server who also took care of the table. Sometimes I really hate people.

  • (#6) Pro-Tip: Don't Work At This Restaurant

    From Redditor/u/Who_Knows_:

    I worked for a company where you had to pay 3% of your takings back to the company for the privilege. I.E. if I took £2,000 on a Saturday, I had to give them £60 out of my tips. If I only made £50 in tips, the 10 would come out of my pocket. They justify it by saying that it goes towards training managers and bonuses that managers get. Because... you know... people on minimum wage should have to pay for that.

    This made me resent most people. If a table spent £100 and didn't tip, I'd be pissed off because I'd be paying for them to have a good time.

    Anyway, to the story. I had a table of eight-or-so people. No manners, nobody said 'please' or 'thank you.' I was there to be their servant, because that was my job, and that was how they acted. When they finally paid, they were short a significant amount. They had taken a prawn head from their plate, and wrapped it up in the cash. I had to find this treat, count the money, and go back and confront them so that I didn't have to pay any more for their delicious meal.

    Needless to say, I lost my sh*t, and that was my last shift at this wonderful company. Looking back on it, in the long run I feel like this party did me a big favour. Most nights my 3% would equate to more than my wage for the evening. F*ck paying to work.

  • (#14) Faithful Return Policy

    From elcalrissian:

    I had a lady give me a pamphlet. Then I saw her at church two days later and gave it back to her.

  • (#11) Divine Retribution

    From Redditor/u/Silvius_ii:

    I had a church group leave little fake $5 bills with 'Your Treasure Is In Heaven' and their church address on it for a few weeks. (Stupid.)

    So another server and I saved up about $50 'worth' of the fake money. Then we went to a service at the church listed on the tract and put them in the collection plate and got up and left. Because their treasure is in Heaven, right?

  • (#8) Party Monsters

    From a deleted user:

    My worst story comes from the Rotary club of my county. It was during our slowest time of the day, so I was the only waiter on duty. It was me, the bartender, and the head chef; that was it.

    So 26 people came in at one time and were upset that we didn't have a large table ready for them. They hadn't called and asked for a reservation, let us know that they'd need a large setting, nothing. They ordered a bunch of drinks and appetizers, and the treasurer told me to make sure I put everything on one ticket to make things easier.

    After the three of us struggled to get all the drinks and appetizers out in a timely fashion, it came time to collect the main course orders. Of course every damn one of those b*stards wanted things customized.

    Got it taken care of, got everyone their food. Got refills for drinks.

    Dessert comes around, and we get that out.

    By this point everyone is mingling around and talking. I bring the check to the treasurer, and he tells me that they decided everyone was paying for their own meal.

    I ended up having to split that ticket 26 different ways; even though ticket software makes things simple, that's still a pain in the ass to do. I start collecting money, running cards, etc. For the 26 people, it ended up being almost $500.

    As I'm cashing everything out I realize two of them (one of which was the treasurer) ditched on their bills. The total for my tips after they all left came out to about $10. The bartender didn't get a single tip.

    After that, we implemented a policy that a group larger than eight had to call ahead at least 30 minutes, implemented an automatic 18% gratuity for any party larger than eight, and implemented a policy where a single group couldn't split their ticket more than six ways.

  • (#3) Christian Charity At Work

    From Redditor/u/LemonFake:

    I was a waitress in a city that had a church (or two or three) on every street for awhile. Church people were regular customers, and Sunday was always a really busy day. There was one particular church group that came in regularly every Sunday with about 10 or 11 people. They'd come in in their fancy church clothes and we'd have to move several of our tables to put them together so they could all sit beside each other (we didn't have a big table, only two-to-four-person ones). They'd usually order something about mid-price from our menu and stay for about an hour or so and for that time I'd keep their drinks refilled and make sure they had everything they needed. Usually they'd wish me a good day/week and I never had any complaint.

    And every single week without fail, instead of money, they would leave me bible verses printed out on little slips of paper like the ones you get out of fortune cookies, only they were always in all these different bright colors instead of white. I worked there for probably three years and I never saw a damn dime from those people.

About This Tool

This mode of enjoying service and paying rewards was called tips. According to research, tipping culture originated in England in the 16th century. The owner of a private castle gave the servants some coins to encourage and commend their thoughtful service. Since the 18th century, a bowl with the word to insure prompt service became common on the dining table of a London hotel. Tips evolved into a fixed word and developed into specific consumer culture today.

The tips are not required by law in all countries, and there is no clear standard for the amount so that it is easy to produce misunderstanding under different cultural backgrounds. What do you think of tipping culture? The random tool displays 15 stories from servers, you could check the worst tips ever.
