Even dumber is the fact that this whole tipping game has elevated a waiters earning potential to a point that its better than some professions that actually require skill or knowledge.
Waiting tables is not a career. Its just a paycheck for those on their way to something bigger and better. If its your primary source of income beyond the age of 30, youre a loser.
One of my friends works at a fine dining restaurant here in Orlando and is easily making $1,500 a week. Is he a loser?
