i'm not going to rant and rave, though i could fill volumes. i've been a server 12 yrs. i support a family and make a very good living at what i do. now a a lot of nationalities are none for be being bad tippers and mostly it works out to about the same % of good vs bad as everyone else. now i'm not trying to put anyone down but the english just are god awful tippers. i'd say about 90% just f**k you out of your time and money. it's one thing if the services is awful but they'll tell how good a time they had smile and hand you a 9% tip. i guess i'm kinda mad right now cause i had a table in my section tonight that sat there for 3 hrs(normal length of time is about 1 1/2hr) rang up a $274 bill($120 dollars worth of liquor which i have to pay $12 of to the bartenders) and then tipped me $14 and thanked me for the good service. now think about this i paid $12 to wait on them, they took up tables in my section for double the length of time and then gave me a 5% tip. the grand total i made on this table was $2. this kinda thing is fairly with english guests. now all that to find out is there some reason that the english, in general, tip so badly?
