Here is the scenario. You are at an all you can eat buffet. The question is: do you leave a tip? And why or why not?
I don't eat anywhere the food is piled in troughs for people to trudge through like cattle. Fuuuuuuck that.Here is the scenario. You are at an all you can eat buffet.
Hells no.do you leave a tip?
It isn't my fault if their employer doesn't compensate them enough. Guilting people into leaving money behind is tantamount to begging.And why or why not?
Yes, I think you should. Of course it depends on the quality of service. Are your used dishes gone by the time you get back with round two? Even though this is not a big task, it is still service. I would not leave a tip if a) the used dishes stay on the table for too long and/or b) the waiter is basically waiting for me to finish whatever I am eating just to grab the plate as soon as I put my fork down.Here is the scenario.

I lied. I tipped my lingerie waitress last night. I spent $80 on beer and gave her about $30 in tips. Clearly, she was targetting me and my fat wallet in my drunken state. And I don't think "Missy" was even her real name. I feel cheated.Nope. We don't tip down here. At all.
You do know that people at Mc Donalds often get paid more than your average waiter right? People that actually have to wait tables have a better chance of getting tips, so they get paid a lower wage...My thought is basically the same as Jenn's. I get the food my damn self. They hand me a drink. Maybe refill it once or twice. Other than that they are glorified bussers. I don't tip at McDonalds, and they at least give me the food. I don't tip at the supermarket, even though they bag my groceries. I don't tip the bus boys and girls at a normal restaurant, either. Why should I tip for for the minor extra of getting me a drink that probably cost them about $.10 yet they charge me $1.50? Seems like that's a pretty damn good tip already.
I WOULD tip the cooks, if I were sure that it would get to them...but by the time whatever I may leave as a tip is spread over the kitchen staff, it would seem meager, I'm sure, and possibly insulting.
Clearing the dishes is not "service" it's necessity. They would quickly run out of dishes on a busy day if they waited until people left.
