i have bartended and waited tables; if you work in a good busy restaurant you can make bank; i will gladly take the tips

once you have the mindset you are a salesman and the menu is your product the money will follow ; its no different then making commission on a car sale

what pisses me off is when someone wants 20% on a take out order who gets paid a non-tipping wage; if you are a professional waiter its a legit difficult job to time courses, knowledge of your menu etc...you are being paid (tip) to create an experience; fucking handing me a bag of take out food that the really labor was in the kitchen preparing that food doesn't not deserve an additional fee(tip)

even if you work at a chain restaurant and they put you on take out they up your wage for that shift

I promise you if you walked into Ruth Chris or say even Sweetwater Tavern and told the wait staff hey we are going to start paying you a wage and nix tipping there be an uproar. The tipping in restaurants was to make your waitstaff salesmen; the more they sale the more the restaurant makes and the more the server makes. A waiter is no different then a car salesman.

They are always free to leave and work somewhere else.

I rarely tip on takeout unless itís a big order.

exactly

i am annoyed with tipping full wage employees

if you are working at say a Chinese take out with no table service you are getting minim wage at the least

if you are a waiter at restaurant you are getting like $5 or less an hour plus tips; its a commission base job no different then car salesmen or realtor

you know a job that no one is up in arms about but is basically commission; auto mechanic, no work no pay and the sales people are the service advisors

When you have a day that feels like it exists for life to shit down your throat. I have ate shit all day. Not my favorite meal.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

HOA's.

I live in 1 condo, but I have 2 HOA accounts. 1 for the monthly assessment and 1 for the hidden extra monthly assessment that they collect once a year.

Last year, the hidden one was billed on May 1st. This year, somehow billed and due on April 1st lol. So now, I'm late on this assessment I had no idea was actually due in April. Because why the fuck would I assume it was due? I guess they don't "raise" the amount due every year, they just make it due 1 month earlier each year, and hope no one notices this is raising the rates.

There are more issues too, but that's a good summary.

Job searches.

I'm bored and want to try something different.

Internet job descriptions make every job sound like you have to be a Mensa member. Then the pay is like $16/hour. How do people get jobs or date anymore? Our current age sucks.

Scammers. Just saved my old roommate from losing $25,000. These motherfuckers spoof phone numbers, give real info, spoof other agencies, like our local police and everything.

Wish you could find these people and smash their teethe down their fucking throats.

Mean people, racists, inconsiderate people, just to name a few. Plus dirty and messy stuff as love to clean.

Unprepared people drive me nuts. You're an adult, get it together and take some ownership of your situation.
