I have often wondered as I was sitting at a restaurant or standing in front to the pizza delivery guy, why we tip them.

I mean, does anyone give you a monetary tip because you did a good job? Did you last client give you an extra something on the side because he/she thought you did a great job? Did your boss tell you that you did a good job on that project, here's a couple of bucks for doing so well? Probably not.

I'm not saying let's not tip the pizza guy or the chick that brought your food to you. I'm just asking why we do it. They are paid to serve us as we sit there. It is their job to bring us what we ask for. They already get paid for it. Why do we need to throw in anything extra?

I guess we tip them because their bosses are to cheap to pay them a full salary and they have to receive tips to compensate. In a way that's unfair. I mean, the minimum wage is like $5.15 an hour. A waitress makes like $2.45 an hour and has to rely on tips to make up the rest. Of course, if for any reason she didn't make minimum wage including her tips, her job has to compensate.

But don't you think that can be intense on someone. If you have a bad serving day, you don't get paid as much. What if all the people you served where assholes and left you nothing but the spare change from their meal? That would suck. You also have to deal with the sleazy ass men who are so socially retarded that they can barely walk without doing something offensive. Those people should be shot. And of course you have those snobby women who, when she hands you things, makes a face like you have some disease and doesn't want to touch you, much less breathe in the same air. Those pople we should hang.

I've gotten off my point, sorry.

Why do we tip?

We just do.

Love you later,

We tip because they get paid less, and depend on their tips to make the rest of their wages.

It's as simple as that.
That is the realism of it.
