Get accused of not ever tipping because 'you're Brits and you never tip', point out we always give the suggested 15% and usually over if there was actual service given. They seem to think we're utter banana splits for only.tipping for good service here but they can't wrap their heads around that restaurants etc pay their staff properly so they go home with decent enough money anyway.

"But she has to wash your dishes when you leave you asshole", yeah, and she gets paid for it. American restaurants must make such obscene money because they charge a load for their food and drink yet expect the customer to pay the staff wages on top of the bill via tips.

Twats.


Nice Guy Eddie: C'mon, throw in a buck!

Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip.

Nice Guy Eddie: You don't tip?

Mr. Pink: Nah, I don't believe in it.

Nice Guy Eddie: You don't believe in tipping?

Mr. Blue: You know what these chicks make? They make gooseberry fool.

Mr. Pink: Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit.

Nice Guy Eddie: I don't even know a strawberry floating Jew who'd have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip?

Mr. Pink: I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.

Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice.

Mr. Pink: She was okay. She wasn't anything special.

Mr. Blue: What's special? Take you in the back and suck your dick?

Nice Guy Eddie: I'd go over twelve percent for that.

Mr. Pink: Look, I ordered coffee, alright? And we been here a long strawberry floating time and she's only filled my cup three times. When I order coffee I want it filled six times.

Mr. Blonde: Six times? Well, what if she's too strawberry floating busy?

Mr. Pink: The words "too strawberry floating busy" shouldn't be in a waitress' vocabulary.

Nice Guy Eddie: Excuse me Mr. Pink, but the last strawberry floating thing you need is another cup of coffee.

Mr. Pink: Jesus Christ I mean, these ladies aren't starving to death. They make minimum wage. You know, I used to work minimum wage and when I did I wasn't lucky enough to have a job that society deemed tipworthy.

Mr. Blue: You don't care if they're counting on your tips to live?

Mr. Pink: [rubbing his middle finger and thumb together] You know what this is? The world's smallest violin playing just for the waitresses.

Mr. White: You don't have any idea what you're talking about. These people bust their ass. This is a hard job.

Mr. Pink: So is working at McDonald's, but you don't see anyone tip them, do ya? Why not? They're serving you food. But no, society says don't tip these guys over here, but tip these guys over here. That's bullshit!

Mr. White: Waitressing is the number one occupation for female non-college graduates in this country. It's the one job basically any woman can get, and make a living on. The reason is because of their tips.

Mr. Pink: strawberry float all that.

Mr. Brown: Jesus Christ.

Mr. Pink: I mean I'm very sorry the government taxes their tips, that's strawberry floated up. That ain't my fault. It would appear to me that waitresses are one of the many groups the government strawberry floats in the ass on a regular basis. If you show me a piece of paper that says the government shouldn't do that, I'll sign it. Put it to a vote, I'll vote for it. But what I won't do is play ball. And this non-college bullshit you're givin' me, I got two words for that: learn to strawberry floatin' type, 'cause if you're expecting me to help out with the rent you're in for a big strawberry floatin' surprise.

Mr. Orange: He's convinced me. Gimme my dollar back!

Exactly. Also enjoy the fact that once you add tax and 20 strawberry floating percent for the tip just to have food brought to your table LIKE SHOULD HAPPEN ANYWAY IN A strawberry floating RESTAURANT you easily have enough on top to have fed a third person (if there's 2 of you of course). Scandalous.

I'm not a huge fan of tipping, unless the person serving you has gone above and beyond then I don't see why you should. They already get paid for their services, why should I pay them more?

I once had a takeaway guy deliver my food which came to say £15, I paid with a £20 note and he just assumed I was tipping him £5 and started walking away. When he realised I hadn't gone back inside he turned around and awkwardly asked "Oh, did you want change?"... Err of course I strawberry floating did, you've essentially just tried to steal £5 off me you cheeky banana split.

The US system of tipping is also awful if you are using a credit card. You pay first and then write the tip on the bill.

Wtf is that crap? If there is some discrepancy that means you need to actually keep the receipt with you until your bill arrives. At least here you just add it when you pay for the bill.

I will never understand how thst is a secure system. I asked at several places what would stop someone just writing what they want on the Bill.

"Oh it's only authorised for the main amount"

"...so how does the tip get added on?"

"We do that when you leave"

"But you could just write whatever you wanted and add a zero to the end of everything."

".....its only authorised for the original amount sir"

"..... :| "

Could someone find the ad agency responsible for shoe-horning Scooby doo into a strawberry floating bank advert and give them a slap.

Halifax do it with top cat as well and its one side of a bigger thing which pisses me off along with bank tv adverts which use infantile ukelele music and pastel-shaded cartoon animations to show how much they care. strawberry float right off with that patronising gooseberry fool.

Oh man those adverts piss me off something absolutely rotten. Scooby Doo is strawberry floating annoying enough on it's own, but crammed into this gooseberry fool eating-grin disgrace of an advert is just insidious. I strawberry floating hate Halifax.

There's a whole series of those new Halifax adverts though: Flintstones, Scooby Doo, Top Cat and the latest one being Thunderbirds.

Sure they don't want to throw in Mysterious Cities of Gold and Thundercats to completely strawberry float over my childhood.

I’ve heard that Howard's a right prick in real life, apparently totally up himself.

Idiota on trains that crowd around the door area when lots of people are getting on instead of moving down the carriage to make space and pay no attention to anyone around them so just stand blocking the way.

I'm currently part way down with loads of room while everyone else is sardine canned so they can be right by the door.
