Re: “Tipping on to-go orders and that moment of regret

KC Bartender
One more thing:
If you take my to-go order over the phone, that is just like me being there telling you my order, no difference there. Secondly, I am not even there to RECEIVE the service if I come and it's already made already. Since I am coming inside to pick it up, **I** am doing work!! I am coming inside to get it when the food is already there already, so it doesn't matter how it got made or who did anything with it, I wasn't in the BUILDING to RECEIVE service, so that's even LESS service than fast food cashier counter service that I don't call in my order for.

If I get it delivered such as pizza, if the order is correct, yes, they will get 20% or more, but if I have to PICK UP the food, they aren't getting a penny. I am using my car, my gas, and my effort to go inside to pick it up.

Have you all your life, HONESTLY, tipped when you go to a pizza place such as Domino's, that when you PICKED UP YOUR PIZZA, you tipped? How is this ANY DIFFERENT than me calling in an order at Applebee's vs. Pizza Hut or Domino's? It's not. It doesn't matter WHO did the work fixing the food. It matters HOW it got to me. If I had to get up to get it, that's service I performed, unlike when you dine inside that your server brings you every single thing you need and then some.

"I have worked in bars for years, and it is so rude and annoying to put together a carry-out order for somebody, and then not give receive a tip. Keep in mind that fast food employees get paid minimum wage+, and most bartenders make about $2.13 an hour."

It doesn't matter WHAT you get paid per hour if the customer is receiving the **SAME OR LESS SERVICE**!! Why should I pay you a tip, but not that McDonald's or Wendy's cashier for putting together my order? I have had a Wendy's cashier PUT TOGETHER my burger. She didn't cook the burger, just as the bartenders or to-go servers don't either. She actually put mayo, onions, lettuce, and cheese on it. She actually filled a cup with ice and drink. She actually rung me up and gave me change.

We don't have to keep in mind that your employer is UNFAIR to you. That is NOT OUR ISSUE OR PROBLEM!! If you don't like it WORK SOMEWHERE ELSE!!

"Plus, we'll remember that you don't tip, and when you might come in to eat, don't expect to be treated very well."

No, because I am tipping ***FAIRLY*** to ALL EMPLOYEES that give me the SAME OR LESS SERVICE by either tipping all or tipping none!!

When I dine in, I am VERY generous tipping at times 25%-30%, even more I have at times.

When I am getting fast food cashier work done though, there shouldn't be tipping if we can't tip them, but then turn around to tip you, that's just UNFAIR and it's WRONG!!

"People make mistakes, and what goes around, comes around."

If you do, WHY should you feel like you should get a tip when it's fast food cashier service just because you make less from your employer? That's not OUR ISSUE OR PROBLEM, that's between YOU and YOUR EMPLOYER!!

If you make mistakes during me dining in, I take points off. Why should you get the full amount if you made me miserable, huh? What goes around, comes around!!!

"It's likely that the same bartender took your order, made sure the order was correct, and was in the kitchen prior to your arrival boxing your order up and making sure you had plastic utensils, napkins, etc."

They don't make sure my order is correct 95% of the time. Secondly, the **CASHIERS**, NOT the cooks, the *CASHIERS* do this stuff already when you go to places like McDonald's. The CASHIER gets me a syrup in one box for my hotcakes, some butters in another box, a knife in one box, a fork in another(Applebee's for example has ALL-IN-ONE pack of napkins, saltnpepper, utensils), they ring me up, and they give me change. When I order a big mac, I ask to get some mac sauce on the side. MANY of times, the CASHIERS have gone to get it. All of this for NO TIP!!

"Or, don't be afraid to ask the bartender who prepared your to-go order and ask to see that person."

So people that are in a hurry(most of the time it's their lunch break at work or something like that), you expect them to WASTE THEIR TIME asking that when they received the same or less service? Are you kidding me? It doesn't matter if I have the same service. Especially if someone else helped out.

Unless you get it DELIVERED to your car or house, you should NEVER, EVER, EVER, tip UNFAIRLY for a to-go order.

"It's typically bartenders that take the time to make the carryout at most restaurants. They took the time, they deserve the cash."

You can't tip the people that do the SAME EXACT JOBS THOUGH, so it's UNFAIR to tip one, but not the other. It's only fair if we could either tip BOTH or NONE, which we aren't allowed to tip the fast food cashiers that serve us at the counter, so why should you deserve a tip for doing the SAME OR LESS WORK THEY DO? If they are doing the SAME OR LESS WORK, then WHY should you get a tip?

"I didn't check the bag. That's on me. I left you a tip. That's also on me."

Yes, it's on you for tipping on a to-go order in the first place when that is strictly FAST FOOD COUNTER SERVICE that those cashiers receive NO TIP when I have had fast food *CASHIERS* actually fix my burger, put in condiments in cups for me as well, not just rang me up and threw it in a bag.

It's on you also for not double checking. I have learned the hard way too that you have to double check BEFORE you leave with any order that you order to-go ANYWHERE!!!

They should double check, but let's say they did and it's just a real mistake that they just missed something, you can catch it if you double check yourself.

$5 on ANY to-go order is NUTS, REALLY NUTS!!!

Re: “The five unforgivable food mistakes

"A stiff is deserved if the server doesn't act like they care such as not apologizing and asking to get something comped, whether they wrote it down or not."

I only meant for a major error like the completely wrong food, not a minor error.

Re: “The five unforgivable food mistakes

"5. Any mistake when the waiter refuses to write down an order. If you refuse to write down what I ask for, you better be perfect."

I agree to take off points for a mistake that is their fault if they didn't write it down or if it's a major error such as the entirely wrong food. A stiff is deserved if the server doesn't act like they care such as not apologizing and asking to get something comped, whether they wrote it down or not.

I don't agree with stiffing for a small error unless that small error is refused to be fixed, you have to wait a really long time to get it fixed due to their fault, or you have to ask for something a bunch of times.

"When you can't admit that you might make a mistake if I have a substitution request, then I don't have to be forgiving if my order is wrong, even if it's the kitchen's fault."

I 100% disagree if it's a kitchen staff mistake, because if the server put the order in correctly and brought it out obviously correctly that they couldn't see unless they cut into the food it wasn't prepared or cooked properly, WHY would you take it out on their tip whether they wrote it down or not? It's not their fault if they can't cut open your food to know it's raw or not cooked enough if they put in the order correctly, so WHY punish the innocent?

I won't be AS forgiving if they didn't write it down if it's something that IS TRULY their fault such as they forgotten or wrong side dish or missing condiments or bringing out the wrong entr�meaning even if they ask for a comp and apologize because they didn't even *TRY* to get it right in the first place by WRITING it down is more penalizing in my eyes). If they were too lazy to write it down and then mess up, then why should I feel as sorry for them when they aren't a hard worker like I am? If you are willing to "WORK" for your money, then you will get more than if you are lazy and mess up. If you get it right all the time and never mess up when not writing it down, more power to ya, but most servers can't remember some things without writing them down.
