23 Cool Ways to Leave A Tip

The whole point of leaving a tip is to show your appreciation, but if you turn the tip itself into an additional cool thing then you can tip less! Wait, no that’s not right. [via dumpaday]

      1. Are there actually people who believe this? Don’t we know that in the USA people in tip dependent positions get paid next to nothing and the tips make up the bulk of their pay? So they have to be grateful that someone deigned to give them payment that they should be getting anyway? Ugh

        1. “Should be getting anyway”? You do understand it’s not the customers responsibility to make sure servers make a livable salary by paying more than they have to ? This is just a dirty way for restaurant owners to save money. Don’t blame people that don’t tip. Blame the restaurant owners. Change this .Ever hear of a strike ? It’s not hard to set up a site, facebook, and twitter site to make contact with all that want to join and force a change. Let’s see if they can run a restaurant without servers.

          1. You do realize that by having a server make money from tips allows the restaurant to provide reasonably priced food. Would you go to Ruby tuesday and pay $40 for a burger? Doubt it. So don’t be a cheap douchebag and leave your server a few $$. Don’t wanna tip? Go to McDonald’s you stupid fuck. Please do mankind a favor and sterilize yourself and any children you may have already damned with existence.

          2. So every server in America should strike? Almost every restaurant expects their servers to make their money through customer tips… Servers typically make around $2 an hour so they depend on tips to make a living. As the other commenter pointed out, if servers were paid minimum wage or higher the food prices would be higher, then customers would complain about higher prices

          3. For you down below ; the most countries I’ve been to do not require mandatory tipping and have reasonably priced food. And no, they were not cheap labour countries. I live in one of the richer countries and we do servers make a good wage and the food is not expensive. If you want a change in injustice, which this clearly is, don’t try to make excuses.

    1. Golly. That got angry quick.

      Fun fact – Restaurants still have to pay their staff minimum wage. That means that if the wait staff doesn’t make up the dif in tips, the store legally has to. Unfortunately, a lot of waiters are unaware of this and thus get screwed by their management.

      If you work for a restaurant make sure that your employer knows this, and that you do too.

      That said, don’t be a jerk. The surest sign that someone has never worked in the service industry is that they don’t tip.

  1. It’s not cool to draw all over money. It’s annoying, and that bill probably has to be replaced by the bank to be usable.

    The origami is pretty badass.

    1. No, it doesn’t have to be replaced by the bank to be usable. What makes you think that ink or graphite invalidates legal tender? The bill is still fully recognizable and the multiple security measures against counterfeiting remain in place. I don’t see what’s annoying about it unless the drawing makes it difficult to read the denomination. Personally, when I worked as a cashier, receiving a bill with well-rendered artwork on it was a highlight of my day. I never heard a word from my managers about being unable to keep a bill in circulation because Lincoln was wearing a different style of hat.

        1. I’m pretty sure it isn’t. I mean, I’d have to consult with a lawyer to be sure, but a glance at the LegalBeagle website supports my assertion that drawing on money isn’t a crime – or at least isn’t a crime for which you’re likely to be prosecuted. The law “prohibits mutilation, cutting, disfiguring, perforating, and other acts that are intended to make the bills unable to be used.”

          LegalBeagle also indicates that in order to be convicted of such a crime “you must have the intent to defraud someone.” So like I said, if you obscure the denomination or make the bill unrecognizable, that could get you into trouble. But simply giving George Washington a new hairstyle isn’t something that the Treasury Department or the Secret Service is likely to give a damn about.

          1. Because writing on them isn’t defuguring…. Or a load of idiots writing on it won’t make it became illegible over time making it unable to be used….

        2. Common misconception. Defacing money used to be illegal, when all we had was coins. People would shave the edges of their coins, reducing their weight. They would then sell the shavings or make fake coins from them. This is why we have the grooves on quarters and dimes still.

          But drawing on your bills has never actually been against the law.

  2. I’ve never served tables, but does the cute rolls and origami slow servers down? Do they have to stop and unfold it or do they just stuff it in their pocket and count it out at the end of the day? Pretty sure that stacking forks on top of the tip or stuffing coins between fork tines will slow them down a lot though. Although we don’t have context. You could be the only patron, or good friends with the server, etc

  3. The pictures are great, but some of these tips seem awful small. Anyway, the origami seems cute for a present, but maybe not for a tip?

  4. If any of those things slowed a server for more than 10 seconds they probably aren’t capable of sitting the right way on a lavatory.

  5. My…. you are all a bunch of stuffy turds for fun money origami…. let those people worry about their day and maybe you’ll enjoy yours

  7. Am I the only one concerned/confused that there’s a $20 tip with a note saying “don’t spit in my food”? Did they give that tip to the waiter BEFORE they ate?
