, You would tip one percent?? As a 15 year long bartender/manager, a waitress has to tip out 5-8 percent...so even if you tipped her 18 percent, SHE is only making 10 percent....and if you tip he one percent, she has to pay the bar and the house about twenty bucks for the pleasure of SERVING YOU!!!! Think again when tipping....we make 2 dollars an hour minus taxes....My 60 hour a week checks were nine or so dollars usually, because they taxed my tips too. We LIVE OFF tips and a waitress has to tip out the bartender, the barback, the hostess, the bouncer, and DJ if it applies. Even when you THINK you are being 'generous and tipping twenty percent, the waitress get about 12. If you cab't afford to tip twenty percent, you can't afford to eat out, dude. One percent on a 323 dollar tab??? I am NOT KIDDING, she would bust her ass on a table of howevere many people, and probably not get another table for hours and twenty bucks would come out of HER POCKET to tip the hostess that sat you, the bartender than made your drinks, etc...and if she didn't have the twenty bucks to tip everyone out because you stiffed her, she would loss her job. People like you, that think tipping one percent is okay because you THINK we make minimum wage too when we make NOTHING but tip usually are the reason that waitress can't make ends meet though she works 70 hours.
