I'm Sick and Tired of Tipping!

ChefMikeinBurlington | Mar 13, 201810:58 AM     22

You walk into a pub and order a $7.00 Guinness, add tax and it becomes $8.00, but you're expected to add another 15% tip to that for a $9.00 pint! I didn't mind it when the person pulling my pint was making $5.75, but now that they've at $12.00/hr, pulling only 15 pints an hour means they're up to $25.00 per hour at least, very likely much more....

Want to guess what the guy making my food gets? Want to guess what the hourly rate of the head chef works out to be if he's not tipped out?? Tell me why i should tip 15% or more on a bottle of wine already marked up 200% when it takes all of 1 minute to unscrew it and pour 2 glasses??

Despite the problems, a service charge properly implemented is the future of dining out...
