    How much do you make in tips on average/night? And what type of place you work at in Bahamas? A resort?

    Instead of laying out 5 ones on a table like a barbarian I've come up with a more fair method.
    1$ to the hostess for seating me
    1$ to whoever refills my water
    1$ to whoever brings me my well done steak
    And I make sure to get ahold of the manager and give them 2$ with special instructions to give it to the chef. If i can see into the kitchen I'll walk over and get his attention myself

    What we're trying to do (likely year 2 as finding the right staff is hard) is have a tight team of 7-8 each salaried with benefits and other things (free tailoring and hair cuts, etc), each member will work 5 days a week so they get days off with PTO as well. Its not a huge payroll increase and we can easily increase the prices to cover this and hopefully keep turnover to near nothing.

    I work at a beach bar on a small island. What I make varies by what time of year it is, but generally I guess an average day would be ~$75 -100 tip, plus $7/hr. We split tips between everyone, including kitchen staff.

    Well, I'm married but I get to dive lobster and sling a few drinks for a living so it's not too bad.

    I can't even imagine being single and working at a place like Nippers though. That's the dream for a 20 year old.

    I had to pay taxes every year I was a waiter. I never saw a paycheck because my 2.13 a hour didn’t cover the income taxes I owed on tips I claimed. Then in April, I had to pay more when I filed.

    It’s sounds good in theory, but you’re going to have to find someone interested in the benefits part of this idea. I don’t think you can match a salary that a good waiter/bartender can earn at a decent place.

    In my early 20’s, there is no way you convince me to take less cash in exchange for salary/benefits.

    No, but that's hilarious.

    In NJ at least, that guy is not making a bad living AT ALL.

    The only time I'll give the garbage man anything is when I have an enormous amount of trash or trash that might not be of the suitable variety for the truck. Then he gets paid to look the other way. Around here those crews can change weekly so the guy who hauled your trash mid-April is covering another part of town in May.

    Never know when you need to throw away a 6'1" tarp covered object with red stains. Need to help the trashman for his troubles. Right?

    Either that or something like oil based paint that isn't completely hard in the can or other things they give these scholars carte blanche to call "construction material" if they don't feel like picking it up.

    Well first off that top item is illegal to dispose of in landfills (if still wet) so if they’re putting that in their truck they’re breaking the law and you should be throwing them some money.

    I’ll never understand tipping. I’ll tip 10% when I’m out with friends or family to avoid an argument but other than that I rarely do.

    Never had him leave an envelope, but we do tip them. They come and get the cans from the side of the house and leave everything tidy, so I’m cool with it.

    I'm lucky if their isn't trash in my yard and if my trash can is fully emptied and not lying in the middle of the street when I get home so they get nothing. I do not reward poor work ethic and poor job performance.

    I find the fact that her tits are so big but her nipples are that small... intriguing.

    Because I hate getting yelled at by posters who browse while there grandma/boss is standing over their shoulder. NSFW

    tl;dr fuck a tipping scheme. It's objectively worse for the United States and was initially the result of racism.
