If you read the whole article you will see it was a group of 20 and they ask for separate checks. Then the pastor called Applebee's and demanded that everyone got fired. Applebee's is in the wrong this time. The pastor she is an a$$. The waitress is trying to make a living.

I feel sorry for the guy that thinks waitresses are getting rich on $2.35 per hour plus tips.

Oh and to answer your question it depends on the service

If its bad, nothing

If its average 10%

If I have not had any needs that had not been met 15-20%

If she dresses slutty, with an open top short skirt, she will get less regardless of level of service I gwt

A family of four goes out for supper

Bill total 50-60

15% (what everyone says you are supposed to tip) = 7.50, based on $50

7x7.50 = 52.50

10%
7x5=35

Add the 10 an hour they are getting paid and its pretty easy to get there

Find a server and ask them how much they make in tips

2-300 on a good night is very common plus wages
Sorry Pram, but you would be pretty hard pressed to find a waiter/waitress making 9-10 dollars an hour in the U.S. Trust me, I waited on plenty of tables before I " bettered myself"

Pram - Guess you know nothing about restaurants in St. Louis and absolutely nothing about Applebees. Waitress hourly pay, minimum wage for employees tip eligible, $2.35 per hour.

My daughter once was a waitress for Applebees in KC area. Quote from her it was the worst job and worst place she ever worked. People frequenting Applebees are not "known" as big tippers. She worked her a$$ off while in school for them and none of us will even enter an Applebees any more.

Don't waste your time Europeans & Canadians are notoriously lousy tippers.

I just don't get how those two statements can go together.... "Slutty" and "needs being met" seem to go hand in hand!

Thanks for the well-educated characterization! I tip very well...unless, of course, he/she comes across with an attitude like that!!
