An Irrational Gratuity

Clever, but at ~11.6%, definitely a fail. You’re making us all look bad, whoever you are! :/

  1. Once again, if pi had been defined as 2*pi, things would be better all around…

  2. Lol failblog…please tell me youre a brony

  3. Unless it’s breakfast, in which case 10% is standard.

  4. Another instance where tau is superior to pi.

  5. @Stan, Paul: If pi had been defined as 2*pi, I have a feeling this guy would have left a tip of pi/2.

    @Andrew: I’ve never heard of a “breakfast tip” of 10%. I usually tip 20%, because waiting tables is a job I know I could never do myself. But to each his own.

  6. Perhaps the service just wasn’t that good?

  7. Did they leave fractional coins or screw with the credit card computer (data entry clerk)?
    20% should be standard for all meals. Why screw the morning waitress? She works as hard as the lunch/night server… probably harder dealing with people before coffee.

  8. I 2nd the fail on the 11.6%. I have never waited on tables, but I always give at least 20%. Don’t be cheep peeps, it’s their living!

  9. Oh, to live in a world where people get paid a reasonable wage for their work and tips just don’t happen. It’s virtually impossible to have a conversation about tip amounts that doesn’t devolve into an argument about what amount is appropriate in what situation.

  10. Or just live in Europe or Asia where tips are seen as insults. More often in Asia, but big touristy spots are getting used to tips. Foul American ideals being transported!

  11. “L.A.W” we’re not going to delete your comment, but please do not say “Foul American ideals” – not every american believes in a tipping system or considers it an “american ideal” – thanks.

  12. fa·ce·tious adj \fə-ˈsē-shəs\
    meant to be humorous or funny : not serious

  13. @L.A.W – no problem, we’ve had to remove a few anti-american comments (and anti-insert country) that had nothing to do with posts lately, thanks for understanding.
