This week I’ve tipped one server 25% and one server 10%. At the same restaurant. The guy who got the 25% tip was just so much more attentive, genuine, and helpful. The guy who got the 10% seemed like he couldn’t have cared less that I was there. I don’t even know why I gave have him 10%. Habit I guess.
So I’m curious, what do all of you do to try to maximize your tips and earn yourself the most income you can on each shift? Fire away in the Comments box, and I’ll write a follow up post on some of the best ideas.
