Reading Jason Kottke’s entry regarding the “Shitty Tipper Database“, I too believe that this is a greivous breach of customer confidentiality.

Plus, I’d like to refer to a particular scene from the movie Reservoir Dogs, if I could please..

Do you have any idea what these
ladies make? They make shit.
Don’t give me that. She don’t
make enough money, she can quit.
I don’t even know a Jew who’d have
the balls to say that. So let’s
get this straight. You never ever
I don’t tip because society says I
gotta. I tip when somebody
deserves a tip. When somebody
really puts forth an effort, they
deserve a little something extra.
But this tipping automatically,
that shit’s for the birds. As far
as I’m concerned, they’re just
doin their job.

Look, I ordered coffee. Now we’ve
been here a long fuckin time, and
she’s only filled my cup three
times. When I order coffee, I
want it filled six times.
What if she’s too busy?
The words “too busy” shouldn’t be
in a waitress’s vocabulary.
Excuse me, Mr. Pink, but the last
thing you need is another cup of
They all laugh.
These ladies aren’t starvin to
death. They make minimum wage.
When I worked for minimum wage, I
wasn’t lucky enough to have a job
that society deemed tipworthy.
Ahh, now we’re getting down to it.
It’s not just that he’s a cheap

So you don’t care that they’re
counting on your tip to live?
Mr. Pink rubs two of his fingers together.

These people are taxed on the tips
they make. When you stiff ’em,
you cost them money.
Waitressing is the number one
occupation for female non-college
graduates in this country. It’s
the one jab basically any woman
can get, and make a living on.
The reason is because of tips.
Fuck all that.
They all laugh.
Hey, I’m very sorry that the
government taxes their tips.
That’s fucked up. But that ain’t
my fault. it would appear that
waitresses are just one of the
many groups the government fucks
in the ass on a regular basis.
You show me a paper 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-
