"I find it shocking that someone would pitch a fit to management about .06 when it could cost the server her job on something she didn't think was a big deal."
WHY? Do you see the SERVER "CARE" one bit about the customer's money? I would hope a thief would get fired personally. I wished that ahole that didn't return my 31 cents in 2004 would have gotten fired for it. I reported his ass. It was the situation that we had given (2) $20 gift certificates(the bill was $34.69), which he conveniently decided not to return the original bill to us, only laying a $5 bill on the change dish. He left immediately of course. He owed us 31 cents.
Do you understand it wasn't about the "CENTS" and that it's about the PRINCIPLE of it that he STOLE it AHEAD of time without OUR PERMISSION to take it? I don't care if the server owes me ONE PENNY, if you don't give it back, AUTOMATIC STIFF!! YOU STEAL, I STEAL!!! I will treat you the EXACT WAY you treated me. You take your "ASSUMPTION" tip ahead of time, you get the lazy ass tip you deserve since you didn't bother to go to the bar or the manager to get coins nor did you keep some change in your pocket, even if it's just a couple of dollars worth in quarters even.
I find it "SHOCKING" you are DEFENDING a thief. I find it "SHOCKING" you think we should give a rat's ass about someone that we don't know if they get fired or not as if they actually care if we do, you know?
"these are the types of losers we sometimes have to wait on who would pitch a fit over something so trivial."
I find it "SHOCKING" that you would think the server would think it would be "trivial", because it's a "TRIVIAL" amount, but if you added all your dollars up with 6 cents at a time, it sure would add up. How would you like your paid check, let's say you get one each week, to short your paid check 6 cents? That's $3.12 for the entire year.
Also, I find it "SHOCKING" that you feel customers are "LOSERS", because **THEY** want to make the CHOICE of "HOW MUCH" to tip.
Don't you get it's all about that the CUSTOMER wants to decide "HOW MUCH" and "WHEN" to give the tip and that the server has NO RIGHTS to decide EITHER ONE? It's not about the money honestly, because we leave tips. It's about that WE want to be the ones to decide how much and when to give the tip and we also don't want someone to STEAL IT ahead of time as if it's THEIR MONEY, because it's not, it's "OURS" STILL at that point unless we either leave or say so.
WHY do you feel we are "LOSERS", because we'd want to report a "THIEF" to the manager? I told the lady manager about the situation. I wanted to let him know WHY he didn't get a tip and also to report him STEALING so he could get in trouble. I want the servers that steal to get PUNISHED in some way, even if it's just through the manager telling them about the situation to not do it again.
Thankfully, we hardly ever pay with cash or gift certificates to encounter that problem.
"how the customer has a right, blah blah blah. But 6 cents? Get real."
You don't get it? It's not truly about the 6 cents, even though I mentioned it adds up, I only mentioned that just to make a point that money is money, no matter if it's just a penny that you don't want your paid checks in one year to be short a little of $3, do you? What I am trying to say is, if you want your customers to care about YOUR MONEY, you need to CARE ABOUT THEIRS, EVERY CENT OF IT. Otherwise, don't expect one cent from a customer if you do something morally wrong like steal the part of the tip ahead of time. It's morally wrong to take something without asking or the customer telling you it's ok to take it.
It's honestly truly about that you took something that wasn't yours to keep. When you go to Wal-Mart of McDonald's, don't you get EXACT CHANGE TO THE PENNY? WHY, because the worker(server) happens to make tips, that gives them a RIGHT to actually not return the TOTAL amount of change? The worker making tips has NO RIGHTS to the customer's change without their permission. I don't get why you think it's "MORALLY RIGHT" to take someone's money without asking first or them telling you? I don't get it why you think you should "ASSUME" you are getting paid when it's not required by law? You should EARN your pay by if you have to go to the bar or to the manager or bring some coins on you, to not be SO LAZY ASS by just doing one of those things. The waiter was just too lazy to go to the bar to get coins. That's not the customer's problem that the SERVER is a thief and lazy.
I find it shocking that someone thinks it's OK to steal. WHY is that? I understand you may think it's for nothing, but honestly, it's not. When you see that people can complain about this, you see even if they leave every cent you gave them, YOU EARNED your tip by getting the change. That IS PART OF MY SERVER'S JOB IS TO GET THE CHANGE OR BRING BACK MY CREDIT CARD & RECEIPT. You obviously want to do a half-fast job. What kind of tip do you expect by doing that and should you expect RESPECT back if you didn't GIVE RESPECT to the CUSTOMER'S CHANGE? You wouldn't care if you shorted the customer, because it's not your money, so what do you expect your customer to do to an uncaring server, huh?
