made me think.
First it made me think: that’s nice. Bloomberg is an interesting politician.
Then it made me think: I’m glad he included tipping on there.
And I am. People who don’t know how to tip properly are infuriating. So let’s go over this once and for all. Here it is. A guide for bad tippers.
This blog will now take a slightly condescending tone.
Hello you. Have you ever wondered why you get treated badly at your favorite restaurant that you like to go to? Maybe it’s because you think leaving 10-15% as a tip for your server is a good thing.
Well it isn’t.
In fact, that is AWFUL.
You should always leave servers/bartenders and the like, at least 20%!
Otherwise you will embarrass the people you go out with, piss off servers all over, potentially get something nasty done to your food next time, and just overall look like an insensitive person.
Look at this website:

When you tip badly, people pretty much hate you. And you want to know why, bad tipper?
Because servers make usually anywhere from a whopping $2-$3 an hour. Did you realize that? Repeat this with me:
Servers live off of tips!
So just cough up a few more dollars. The difference between$3 and $5….not that much. But it does mean more to the server. It means you recognize their importance and value their hard work and just simply, you are not an idiot.
So let’s all remember service industry workers and their extremely difficult jobs next time we go out to eat. Because serving is hard. Bartending is hard.
You know what isn’t hard?
Calculating 20% of your bill.
Don’t be a jerk fair readers. Learn how to tip.
