Facebook Page is Trashing Servers

Hold me back, because someone started a Facebook page called “Consumers Against Tipping” and I am really in the mood to shred some bitches up. First off, their page has a whopping 23 people who like it. My page has 575,748 people which is about 25,000 times more people, so basically, I win. While everyone has a right to their own opinion, the page seems less about the idea of tipping people and more about putting down servers. Servers aren’t the only people in this world who receive tips. Hair stylists, cab drivers, hotel workers, my building superintendent and delivery people also receive tips, but I don’t see one fucking meme about any of those occupations. Just servers. And you when someone insults servers, I take it very, very personally.

While I commend the owners of Consumers Against Tipping on their keen intelligence to navigate the rocky road of creating a Facebook page, if all you are going to do on it is bash me and my people, I’m gonna come after you.

Fuck off.

No, you don’t have to tip. It is not required by law to leave your server any money. However, in this country, when you go out to eat in a restaurant where someone is serving you, there is a social contract and obligation that implies you will be providing some sort of financial compensation for the person who was providing you the service. If you don’t want to tip, then you you can be counted amongst the small group of people who choose to be assholes. And if you start a Facebook page about it, then you enjoy the privilege of being in an even more select group of people who, not only don’t tip, but like to brag about it. That makes you a very rare breed of asshole.

Your little memes are adorable, but really? To assume that the only reason people are servers is because they have no education or drank too much in high school is is a big pile of steaming shit, which, coincidentally, is what I would like to serve you if ever come into my restaurant. Your page is new and will no doubt fade away in a matter of weeks. It takes a lot of work to run a successful Facebook page and the number one requirement for a page to take off is for the subject matter to be something people can agree on. Good luck with that. Although there are people in this country who don’t think they should tip their servers, the majority of people think they should. Thankfully, you and your 23 followers are in the minority. I don’t expect you to change your mind. After all, when one’s brain is the size of a pea, what are they going to change it to, a scuppernong seed? I simply wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I think your page is a fucking joke. And I’m pretty sure plenty of other people do too.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to take my college educated ass to work and help people have wonderful dining experiences so they don’t have to cook their own food or clean up after themselves. That’s what eating in a restaurant is and I know that when I go out to eat, I am happy to tip my server in appreciation for taking care of those things for me. And fellow servers? Please go to their page and tell them they can go fuck themselves. Make sure you tell them Bitchy Waiter sent you.

Oh, and I’m pretty sure that anyone who hates that Facebook page will love my book and you can click here to buy it. It’s called The Bitchy Waiter, because, well, I am one.

    Pretty sure this is a (not very funny) joke. Note the recent post about the pregnant teenager. And BW, I love ya man, but why does your site always fuck up my Firefox?

      I don’t have Firefox, but this site always messes up my Chrome. Don’t know why, but it does. First thing is, I always get an annoying spam thing from”Google” telling me I’m the lucky one and I won something. I always have to close the page completely and then log back on. Then it starts acting sluggish. It’ll freeze and it takes forever to load a page😠 I’ll still come here though. Lol, bc I love the content😆

    I really don’t understand why people don’t feel they should tip. If you were just paying for food then you would be getting takeout. When you are eating out someone is serving you, that’s what you’re paying the tip for – being served. Most people won’t serve you unless they are friends with you, related to you, or sleeping with you, so why should strangers serve you for free. I’ll never understand the thought that you shouldn’t have to pay for the service.

    It’s just a troll page created by someone who feeds off the annoyance and anger that the commenters are leaving. Give it a wide berth and he/she won’t have any steam left to continue, but if y’all keep supporting it by visiting it to leave your 1 star review, then it’s going to gain more traction regardless.

    That being said, report it if you want to. It’s made by some hateful person and I’m not about to give them the satisfaction of letting them know it got to me. I’ll continue doing what I do and serving people who willingly tip me for my good service.

    Looking at the page, it actually seems like a joke. I mean, someone trying to be funny, but doing an awful job, or maybe just a stupid prank. I don’t think it deserves that much of any of our energy!

    Bartending/serving paid for my Master’s Degree so I could be debt free. Attacking a server’s education levels makes me so mad because half of us are more educated than the people we are serving.

    Yeah those memes boil my blood. Here’s my typical response to that one… Well I had a 3.9 GPA and a full scholarship but this pays better on average. Oh and my service partner over there? She’s the one educating your children. She works here on weekends and makes more in 2 nights here than her entire teaching paycheck. If only you’d paid more attention in school you might be educated enough to understand American economics.

    Everyone go to that page and report every meme comment picture and even the whole page as offensive if all of us do it Facebook will take it down

      Jennifer what your suggesting is wrong. I’m a big supporter of our constitution. In my opinion, it’s what makes this country the best place to live. We have the right to free speech, within reason. While I don’t agree with the content of the Facebook page they have the right to express their opinions, just like Bitchy does. It also shows what petty, cheap ass fuckers people can be.

      On the flip side I’m starting to get really annoyed with all the tip jars nowadays. They seem to be everywhere. At the dry cleaners, supermarket, donut/coffee shops and fast food joints. People are starting to revolt against it. They’re getting tired of subsidizing labor for all these businesses. So they start taking this out on legit Servers. I feel they really degrade what us servers do. If your getting $8.50-$9.50 an hour to ring me up , why the tip jar?

      I’m currently making $2.13 an hour to provide some semblance of a dining experience for my customers. What I do entails a little more skill, experience and I consider it an art. So as an Artist/Server/Actor that’s creating an special experience for my customers I deserve a decent tip. We all do.

      Think about all these things we do for our customers that have nothing to do with eating. We take pictures, sing happy birthday, present hidden engagement rings, placate their screaming children so they can enjoy a deserved night out, crack jokes to get a smile/laugh, understand how to be discreet with customers (re:cheating, denied credit, etc), we can set the whole mood of their business meetings positive vs negative. Those are just a few examples of what good, professional serves do. Doesn’t matter if we work at Le Cirque or The Olive Garden we all do it. So customers should really think about everything extra we do for them on top of just putting a plate of food in front of them. We’re creating a moment/experience/presentation for our customers and in my eyes this is akin to dinner theater. Most customers realize this and us tip well. The others are just cheap ass, heathens that don’t deserve my time.

    I know alot of people who wait tables because 1)the money can be pretty good 2)it leaves them with flexibility in their schedule to do other projects like writing books, take pictures, raise kids etc.

    Some garbage people can’t shovel their heads out of their own anal cavaty longer than it takes to grunt for more sweet potato fries.
