    Damn, I took a cab from Emeryville to SFO this morning and it cost me 70 bucks, so I tipped the guy 10. I hope that was enough but it was pretty expensive in the first place.

    I go with the standard 15%. It can go up or down depending on the service.

    So, what is the standard now? I know 15 years ago or so it was 15%. I'd usually tip 20% because I wanted to be a good tipper. Now it seems 20% is the standard. If I'm not leaving more than 20% am I just leaving the expected minimum? Anyone out there waiting tables right now? I'd like to know what the average tip is and when you feel like you've gotten a good tip?

    I play b-ball with my pals every Thursday night - we always go out after wards to one of the local restaurant/bar (emphasis on the bar part).

    I left a 93% tip.

    15% is good if the person is over 60, a woman, or a minority .... 20% is standard for good service though.

    If you have an education and are not making as much as a waiter, go be a waiter. Everyone has the opportunity. My wife made $270 last night working from 4-10. I'm not complaining. She makes good money, I get a few nights to myself. Win Win Win.

    Having an education and making money shouldn't have any correlation.

    What you can provide people, or what you can provide the company you are working for, should equate to how much money you make.

    Sometimes your education gets you in the door, but the attitude in America that just because you have a school education you deserve to make more money is ****ing retarded.

    If you want to make a certain amount of money, get a job that pays that much money. Its really a simple equation.

    No, more power to them. Hope they enjoy and are fulfilled by it.

    Not at all, waiting is actually a pretty intense job and requires odd hours as evening time is when you'll probably work. That said, I loved being a waiter, of course, the people I worked with were awesome and I was at the age where it was okay to flirt with the hostesses and not be a creep.
