    Seriously. Bronco then followed suit and people still didn't pick up on it. Great opening scene. Classic QT.

    If I was your accountant, I'd have to strongly advise you against it.



    Opening a restaurant that is.

    I deliver pizzas. It's a pretty fun job, but it also sucks because of all the miles I put on my car.

    I usually tip 15% restaurants, and 5$ for anything delivered.


    If you order from somewhere regularly, and never tip, we remember.

    And I would think that human resources issues would be the biggest challenge, that is if you have a great location, good food with consistently good quality and preparation, are able to keep your prices reasonable (I could make the best food in the world, but unless I'm in NY, LA or Chicago I may not find enough people willing to pay for it), and enough financial backing to get the thing off the ground.

    If your bartender is stealing from you, your head chef is running his own catering business out of your kitchen and using your inventory to boot, your wait staff is hooking up their pals with free meals and the hostess is suing you because she slipped on a recently mopped floor, it's going to be hard to stay in business no matter how good your location is or how tasty your menu is.

    You and that other dummy better start getting more personally involved in your work, or I'm gonna stab you through the heart with a ****ing pencil. Do you understand me?

    delivering a couple pizzas = $5
    fast food = nothing
    sit down (very good service) = 20-30%
    sit down (average service) = 15-20%
    sit down (bad service) = 12-15%
    bellboy= $2-3 per bag
    taxi = about 15%

    I did however have beyond horrific service at an Olive Garden one time though. The meal for 2 without appetizer or dessert took 3 hours from when we were seated and we never had sodas refilled even once and couldn't even get our freakin' salad/breadsticks until we had been there for over 2 hours - yes we talked to the manager too. No profanity was used, but we did express our frustrations. I left about 20 pennies in the shape of a large "F" on the edge of the table for a tip. I have never done under 12% even for bad service any other time ever and have never regretted my tip that time either. FYI, they were only moderately busy.

    My mom worked as a waitress as a 2nd job (at night) when I was growing up so I am always over thinking about how much when I go out.

    Glad to read I'm about on par with most, except with appliance delivery only had it once in my life (new bed) thought about it but I almost never have cash on me because using debit as a credit card now days is just too easy. So I have like numerous free or gifted car wash things to places that when you come out they dry off your car and what not that never get used because of that, well that and I wouldn't know how much to tip. (Unlike Gyp who can't go do to restraining order of being around HS aged girls)


    So lastly hair cut tipping never got answered, although this one could be hard just depending on the place and what not.

    I go to Sports Clips. I usually leave $3, but if she was really good and is cute I will do a few extra bucks.

    20% at any sit down place, 3-4 bucks for pizza unless it's really bad weather or they get it to me super quick in which case I'll go a bit higher. $2 for my cheap ass haircuts.
