"20-year-old server Jess Jones, a student at nearby Rutgers University, posted the receipt on Facebook after the table stiffed her last week. "Even though they did wait an hour to eat, they remained satisfied with filled drinks and proper notice that the kitchen was a bit busier than normal," she wrote. "I need tips to pay my bills," she continued. "All waiters do. We spend an hour or more of our time befriending you, making you laugh, getting to know you, and making your dining experience the best it can be.""

I don't have much sympathy for her - especially since she felt the need to cry publicly about it.

Don't like it? Get another job that doesn't require someone giving you money out of generosity.

Waited an hour to eat? I think I'd have plopped 5 bucks down on the table to cover my diet cokes and walked out.

So no matter how bad the service is, you HAVE to provide gratuity?  Seems a little counter-productive.
Maybe instead of posting her own failure she should be looking for a better restruant to work for.

One did it, it got attention, so others followed suit because they want attention too.

"Restaraunt tip/receipt notes" is bundled in with "I experienced horrible racism!" and shit to me. Take them with a pound of Kosher salt.

People fabricate shit all the time for attention.

Unless she screwed up getting their order to the kitchen she doesn't deserve to be stiffed.  She has no control over the kitchen.

Thank a democrat.

And if you don't like the tips you're getting, Go find a minimum wage job. Plenty to be had. No one is forcing you to work in the food industry and I'm sure as fuck at the end of the week you're making more than minimum wage.

Agreed, additionally, she needs to bitch to the kitchen staff and/or the manager about getting some fucking staff that cover their clientele instead. An hour is bullshit, and I'd not be happy about coughing up $25 tip in addition to my bill after waiting that long.

What kind of fool tips for poor service?

She claims she gave good service on the things she was able.  She can't help the kitchen being slow.

What I did in a similar situation:

Complained to the manager about the long wait, while making it clear that the waitress was very nice.  When the manager gave my family the meal for free, I gave the waitress $20 (would have been ~$100 bill).

I've also gotten up and left.

As a auto tech that dealt with Customer Satisfaction Index surveys, even if I fixed the car correctly the first time and done everything perfect, all it took was the service writer,cashier,porter, their own kids to piss them off and bomb my survey.

That's part of it. I controlled what I could control and the rest was out of my hands.

It was what it was. I didn't bitch about it on the Internet.

I like to tip well, but I also expect good service.

The waitress isn't responsible for the quality of the cooking, but they are responsible for getting the food to the diners and getting the order right.

The one major area where a waitress can lose her tip from me is if she delivers an incorrect order and did not take the time to write the original order down. That tends to result in "If you can't remember things, write them down." being written in the "TIP" section on a receipt.

Concur, but do you determine your tip based on the quality of the waitstaff or the restaurant as a whole?  I skew towards waitstaff.

I see your point.  The disconnect is because while I wouldn't behave as those customers, I don't have a lot of sympathy for the waitress, who is now crying in public about what happened.
