Tips- Required or Appreciated?

So there was a discussion on Facebook yesterday between this one girl and a few others in the beauty industry (hair stylists.) This particular person was upset that she didn’t receive a tip from a customer she had at a salon and she got pretty upset about it. Now as I understand, tips are appreciated but never required in the service industry.

In my personal opinion – if it is a job that could technically be done by ones self if given the skill, there is no real reason to tip. You are just lazy and on’t want to do something yourself. As another example – people in the food industry – you are human and can get your own food, having someone bring you your food that someone else makes is just plain lazy. The tip should really be going to the cook for preparing the food that you yourself were too lazy to make in the first place.

I’m not saying I don’t tip – because of course I do for a job well done or service that’s received well.

But for someone to be outrageously upset because one person simply does not tip you in your job – don’t sweat it. Others will come along that are far more appreciative of the job you do so well. Some people are just not as respectful or concerned with the well being of others. So people don’t understand that a few people do in fact live off or try to afford other things with tips – vent, deal with it and move on.

Some people forget that tips are un-taxable by law. *Edit* Now I’m not definitely sure, but not ALL places make you count your tips. It depends on the establishment and depends on the service* For the average person who does not receive tips – their salaries are all taxed. The service industry workers are basically getting under the table money for the job they do. Sure, they may receive less as a pay/salary – but some don’t. Some are still paid a very high amount in dollars plus tips on top of that – UN-taxed.

Let’s leave it to Buzzfeed – The 12 Meanest Ways To Tip

There is no need to be rude about tipping or not tipping – it’s a personal preference and it is NOT required.

Here is an excerpt from MintLife Blog- 

SHOULD YOU STILL TIP FOR BAD SERVICE?

Whenever a server does a poor job at a restaurant, I never want to tip them, but I feel I should give them something. What would be an acceptable tip for bad service?

1. Of course! But you never come back…and you write a very negative review on Yelp. Satisfaction at last. 

2. A good friend of mine, who is a waitress, gave me this advice: for great service, leave a tip plus a penny. This lets the waiter/waitress know that you thought their service was good/great.
For bad service: leave a penny. The waiter/waitress will be aware that you did not forget to leave a tip and that their service was unsatisfactory.
When asked if this was applicable in any eating establishment, she responded that any professional waiter/waitress would know EXACTLY what was meant by the leaving of a penny.

3. I am a waitress, and you should always tip at least 15%.  If you do not, the server is PAYING TO SERVE YOU.  99% of the time they have to tip out to other people in the restaurant (bartenders, hosts, bussers, food runners, managers, etc.) so by not tipping them, they are paying for you to sit there and eat your meal.  Also, what a lot of people don’t realize is that it may not be the servers fault, kitchens/chefs mess up orders a lot of the time.

If you have a problem with something, ask to speak with a manager and complain about what was wrong to them. 

4. When I get terrible service, I always leave a tip under 15% AND a short note saying why.  The note is always written compassionately (because you never know what kind of suffering in that person’s life caused them to perform that way) and gives a solution instead of just complaining.  This lets the server know what went wrong so that they can do something about it and so that this won’t happen again!

I want to know what some of your opinions are-

  1. Do you tip?
  2. Are a good tipper?
  3. Do you believe that tips should be un-taxed?
  4. Do you still tip for bad service?

Thanks for your opinions everyone!

Happy weekend all!
It’s been awhile Since I’ve written and I have a few photos to share with you that I think you will all enjoy. Instead of my life rambles – please look at some photos of mine while I’m super bored on this labor day weekend at work! Here’s a few that I took and then there’s some funnies for everyone. (This work week has been hell and I’m so ready for this weekend to do nothing at all.) There’s some of me with my cats who decided they wanted to be in my photos. And then the awesome Internet photos.
Enjoy!

You’re all monsters who think you can get away with everything.

Shape up – or ship out. I don’t have time for fake people in my life. I need those people who are going to be there for me and going to make an impact on my life. There are people I want there regardless of the past and there are new friends I want there because they’ve said they care but I’m waiting to see it. Out of sight out of mind – and you know what, I’m going to start doing that to those who’ve done it to me. I need to remove the negativity in my life and be happy for once.

The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had. `♡

When Your Heart Don’t Feel Like Dancing…

I’ll be there to give you mine. :)

Random late night music quote: Say something – I’m giving up on you.

This is what I’m thinking when I listen to my playlist I made recently. Random fact of the day for you.

I haven’t written in a few weeks -events have happened recently and I haven’t had the time. Nothing bad has happened – just too much going on. Work has been insane – I nearly had a break down Friday. That was washed away with a few drinks friday and Saturday but tomorrow is Monday and Monday can go to hell – haha.

I’m listening to some awesome music right now. I made a new Playlist on Google music  – “I’m sending out a search light to bring you back to me.” I labeled this Playlist The Whisperer. I’m not sure why to be honest but it’s very mellow music that can hopefully let me sleep better at night. Obviously it hasn’t yet because it’s 12am on a Sunday night … but it makes me smile.

“Can you bring me back to life when my heart’s in smithereens?

This weekend was a bit bummy. I didn’t want to do much. Got my nails done finally. Had some guy whistle at me while driving around saturday as well as a few more… that made me feel good haha.  Had late night applebees with a friend for half priced appetizers which I never do anymore. So that was nice. Been talking to an old friend for a bit – maybe seeing them next weekend? Idk.  Went to see an apartment .. not getting that one so back to square one I guess. That’s okay… I’ve got a little time. Soon though. If I leave in October or November though… I might as well wait it out till I’m back. No sense in moving you know? But we’ll see what happens. I’m probably not going to leave.. as much as I’d like to.

My cyst is acting up again.. I need to get it checked out soon. Haven’t been sleeping well.. again.

Omg guardians of the galaxy was amazing haha. I went to see it last Sunday and we were just laughing so hard at the whole thing I want to see it again.

I need more girl friends in this area.. I have a select few but not many. Just replace Justin below with a girl and yeah. Basically. That’s all I want haha.

Anyway – I should try and sleep. Moomoo took my pillow so I have to move over. Good thing I don’t share a bed with anyone … I guess.

Open your eyes – and open your heart. It’s not too late to let it go. I’m such a fool. Our love was just a dream.
