Just a good old rant about cheap skates.
I will start by saying that I work at a gourmet charcouterie that is a part of a french restaurant. That means a fancy deli.
Now Admitably, tips are much more of a thing for waiters, who interact with the customer for much longer periods of time, and have to go back and forth for much longer. I understand that, and do not expect much from tips where i work. None the less, when i spend twenty minutes pulling together every sort of spice-infused, herb-crusted, purely-organic dish that costs and hours pay per pound at least, and enough of it to feed a party of twenty, with out any prior order, and then pack it up and walk it out, (a purchase of over $300), i really do expect a single or two, at least for the thought.
I you can’t tell, this happens to me regularly. So here i will present my thoughts. many of the people i serve are the wealthy, stay at home type. THus, when they do not tip, I have to assume that their trust funds have paiud them through freshman year of highschool, kept them in new cars, expensive party schools, and the highest echelon of the nieghborhood their whole lifes. this obviously excludes any time in the food service industry. They just don’t get what it is like to work! Voila, the solution. These people jsut don’t get it. I still stay they should be blamed and tought a lesson, but at least we know its not their fault, sort of.
Thanks for reading my rant.
