The New Consumer Math

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

In the olden days, waitresses got less than minimum and earned the rest in tips.  It created a moral obligation to tip: if you can’t afford the tip, you can’t afford the meal, you owe her a tip as part of her wages.

Now that waitresses make $9.00 hourly, they don’t need to rely on tips to supplement wages.  They can quit trying so hard and I don’t need to feel guilty about not tipping, right?

Joe Doakes

Oh, why not?  Every other consequence of political manipulation of wages is unintended; why should quality of service be any different?

  1. The worst tippers I have ever met, are Democrats. Two of them use some typical liberal economic logic for their cheapskate actions (and this was their actual logic); Well, menu prices went up 5% so my 10% tip is actually 15%. Unbelievable stupidity!

  2. Why unbelievable, boss? We have EmeryTheAntisemiticSoci@list on parade every day here as case in point.

  3. Turn that frown upside down big guy!
    Since we eat out so rarely we’re very good tippers.

  4. Well, I thought it was funny, Emery.
    And original. (I even checked to see where you might have copied it from with no joy.) Good job. Have a cookie.

  5. ‘Not every flower can say love, but a rose can. Not every plant survives thirst, but a cactus can. Not every retard can read, but look at you go, little buddy! Today you should take a moment and send an encouraging message to a fucked up friend, just as I’ve done. I don’t care if you lick windows, or interfere with farm animals. You hang in there cupcake, you’re fucking special to me, you’re my friend, look at you smiling at your phone!’ ;^)
