More Debunking: Why the ghetto myth isn’t a myth

Ever wonder why I post all those bashes of the ghetto? Well watch this video, and you’ll see why. She is who I deal with every night, that makes my life a living hell.

Also, for those of you who were wondering when I say that the ghetto doesn’t tip, take a look at this study from Cornell University.

  1. GOOD LORD. She stiffs the guy on his tip, the manager calls her on it, and she somehow see this as “being discriminated against?” GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK.

    Sometimes I think it would be better if we followed the European model in the US and had a mandatory tip added to the bill, but on the other hand, maybe not. It would make dealing with ignorant people such as this trash queen a non-issue, but I fear that it would also bring on an epidemic of “I no longer need to be nice to you, customers, because I get my tip regardless” among servers.

    What’s your take, Sir Ribeye?

    I’m a new reader of your blog and LOVE it!

  2. That bitch shouldn’t have gotten decent service then! You get what you pay for. You leave a shitty tip, you get shitty service next time. That’s all there is to it. No exceptions. We don’t work for nothing.

  3. Thank you for saying what every server in America already knows but is too P.C. to talk about. America has such a fucked up relationship to race. It will never get any better unless people are at least able to discuss it. If not, in 20 years she will be the average American. Totally uneducated human garbage.

  4. Did anyone else read the study? I thought it was very interesting. Many knew the standard tip was 15-20, but still stiffed or undertipped.

    My parents are undertippers, but I learned on my own to tip properly. There is obviously no hope for some people.

    My opinion – you don’t want to tip properly, go to fucking McD’s or make some shit at home.

    I also liked the part in the study where the author suggested that restaurant management educate undertippers/stiffers. I’d love to see that!

  5. I actually mentioned to the management a “tipping education” thing, flyer, pamphlet, or even just a poster or something, but they thought it would be rude to the guests. I told them “I don’t care how rude it is to the guests, if they get offended, they weren’t planning on tipping anything anyway.”

  6. I HAVE TO COMMENT ON THIS…
    I AM A SERVER IN THE DOWNTOWN DC AREA, I AM ALSO BLACK. ONE THING I MUST SAY IS “IF THE SHOE FITS…” IT’S SAD THAT 9 TIMES OUT OF 10 BLACK PEOPLE ARE JUDGED AS SOON AS THEY WALK IN THE DOOR, BUT WE ONLY HAVE OUR SISTERS & BROTHERS TO BLAME. LIKE HE SAID, NOT ALL BLACKS ARE BAD, BUT MOST ARE. THE WATER WITH LEMON AND A STRAW PISSES ME THE FUCK OFF! THESE ARE GROWN ASS PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN DRINKING WATER ALL THEIR LIVES AND HAS NEVER USED A LEMON OR STRAW AT HOME. THEN MOST OF THE TIME THEY DON’T EVEN USE THE DAMN LEMON. AND THEY’RE SO FUCKING STUPID THEY DON’T REALIZE THEY’D BE BETTER OFF DRINKING OUT OF THE GLASS CAUSE LORD KNOWS HOW MANY HANDS HAVE TOUCHED THE STRAWS THEY’RE DRINKING FROM.

    THEN THEY LOOK AT THE PRICES ON THE MENU AND SAY “DAMN! YA’LL AIN’T GOT NOTHING CHEAPER THAN THIS? THAT’S ALOT OF MONEY FOR JUST …” (NEXT TIME ASK THE HOST FOR A MENU BEFORE YOU’RE SEATED, SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING THAT IS WITHIN YOUR BUDGET AND YOU CAN SAVE FACE).

    WHEN YOUR FOOD OR BEVERAGE TAKES LONGER THAN YOU’D LIKE, YOU CAN POLITELY ASK “DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF HOW MUCH LONGER IT WILL TAKE?” NOT [YELLING] “SCUZE ME, UMM, WHERE’S MY FOOD” IF IT ARRIVES AND THERE IS A PROBLEM, KINDLY ASK (FOR EXAMPLE) “CAN YOU HAVE THE CHEF COOK MY STEAK A LITTLE MORE PLEASE”, NOT “UNH UNH, THIS AIN’T HOW I ORDERED IT” OR “I DON’T WANT THIS SHIT!”.

    SNAPPING YOUR FINGERS TO GET YOUR SERVER’S ATTENTION IS ANOTHER NO-NO. THERE ARE NO DOGS IN THE RESTAURANT! (I WILL IGNORE YOU UNTIL YOU STOP)

    JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T GET OUT OFTEN, WHEN YOU DO GO TO A NICE ESTABLISHMENT THAT MAY BE A BIT PRICEY FOR YOU, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU NOW HAVE A BABYSITTER. I CAN NOT STAND BY YOUR TABLE THE WHOLE TIME YOU’RE HERE. I HAVE OTHER GUESTS TO TEND TO WHO ARE EXPECTING THE SAME QUALITY OF SERVICE THAT YOU ARE. IF YOU ASK FOR SOMETHING I WILL GET IT WITHIN A DECENT AMOUNT OF TIME. DON’T EXPECT ME TO DROP EVERYTHING ELSE I’M DOING BECAUSE YOU WANT MORE FREE BREAD.

    THE STANDARD SERVICE TIP IN THE DC METRO AREA IS 20%!!!!!
    REMEMBER WE ONLY GET PAID $2.77 AN HOUR, IF YOUR CHECK DOES NOT SAY GRATUITY, THEN IT’S NOT ADDED IN. FOR THE BITCH WHO LEFT THE DUDE $8, YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT HIM $32 (ON A $160 CHECK AT THE LEAST) (YOU’RE LUCKY IT WASN’T ME, I’M A NEW YORKER, I WOULD’VE TOLD MY CO-WORKER TO WATCH MY TABLES, CLOCKED OUT, STEPPED OFF THE SIDEWALK (OFF THE PROPERTY GROUNDS) AND WHIPPED YOUR FUCKING ASS!!!) AND YES WE DO AHVE TO TIP BARTENDERS, FOOD RUNNERS, BUSBOYS, ETC. AND IF NO ONE TOOK A SERVING POSITION THEN YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO GO OUT AND HAVE A REAL DINING EXPERIENCE DUMB BITCH!

    ONCE YOUR FINISHED EATING, PAY YOUR BILL, RELAX FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES THEN GET UP. IF YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO COMPENSATE FOR THE MONEY YOU’RE MAKING ME LOSE BECAUSE I CAN NOT SEAT THAT TABLE AGAIN THEN FINE, BUT IF NOT, YOU GOTTA GO. YOU CAN’T SIT IN THE BARBER OR BEAUTICIAN’S CHAIR AFTER YOUR HAIR IS DONE CAN YOU? NO! THEY GOTTA GET THE NEXT ONE IN. IT’S THE SAME SHIT. IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WANT A NICE MEAL, BUT CANNOT AFFORD THE PROPER TIP, THEN TAKE YOUR FOOD TO GO! IF YOU WANT TO LOUNGE, THEN GO TO ONE, THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE FOR.

    LET ME SAY THIS ALSO, I DON’T EVEN MIND WAITING ON PEOPLE WHO DON’T LEAVE 20%, ALTHOUGH I’VE GIVEN THEM GREAT SERVICE, IT’S NOT THE TIP, IT’S THE EXPERIENCE. IF YOU’RE POLITE & RESPECTFUL TO YOUR SERVER, NOT “CAN I HAVE KETCHUP, THEN WHEN THEY COME BACK WITH IT, YOUR FRIEND NEEDS KETCHUP ALSO, THEN WHEN THAT COMES BACK YOU NEED BUTTER, WHEN THE BUTTER COMES YOU ASK FOR MORE BREAD (AND YOU STILL HAVE A WHOLE DAMN PIECE ON YOUR PLATE) ETC. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU’RE BEGGING FOR THE FREE SHIT. ASK FOR EVERYTHING AT ONCE, MINIMIZE YOUR SERVERS RUNNING AROUND (THEY HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO ALSO), BE POLITE AND 9 TIMES OUT OF 10, THEY’LL SAY ” I DIDN’T GET 20% BUT THEY WERE A NICE COUPLE, THEY TOLD ME WHAT THEY NEEDED AND WERE VERY LOW MAINTENANCE AND LEFT PROMPTLY AFTER PAYING THEIR CHECK.

    AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, IF YOU’RE A PATRON READING THIS BLOG, NEXT CHANCE YOU GET, STOP BY YOUR LOCAL MOVIE STORE AND RENT THE MOVIE “WAITING”. BELIEVE ME, THIS BLOG IS FOR YOUR BENEFIT!!!!!!!! LMMFAO!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Thank you Simone. You summed that up nicely. And Ribeye…keep writing…hopefully more people will read and show friends. Everyone should be a server at least once in their life. It teaches patience, control, and how to treat dumbasses.
