Funny story. I actually hit a BBJ on my 3rd time ever playing in a casino. While they were sorting everything out i went to the bathroom. A guy that had been at our table earlier was in there and started chatting with me and told me that it was customary to tip the dealer around 10%. I believed him and tipped the dealer that.
Turns out the guy was the dealer's gf, lol.
Awice, thats a great explanation of why a tipping society might be less efficient than a non tipping society. But if you dont tip in a tipping society you are taking advantage of the lower costs and labor standards without paying your fair share. You could give a great argument of why public transportation should be free, but if you dont pay your fare on the subway youre taking advantage of everyone else who is.
K, im done
The difference is that free rider behavior is punishable by law for the public transportation problem, and not for the tipping problem. The free rider theory was created exactly to highlight the problems in creating a culture where people have the choice to pay or not pay for a certain service or not and benefit from it regardless. The theory is there to say "hey, this thing here doesn't work like this, this system will be exploited by free riders", it doesn't exist to say "hey, if you don't pay for this thing you are a free rider and a bad person". In theory if free riding isn't punished you're a sucker if you are not free riding. But because there are social consequences people still tip even though there are no legal consequences.
What do you think would happen if tomorrow public transportation tickets became optional and not buying one would not be punishable in any kind and the new stance of the government would be "if it does not yield enough money to run it, it is clear that the public does not require public transportation"? There wouldn't be any public transportation left if that happened.
Obv I agree that if you live in a tipping culture never tipping is a bad thing. But I can deff relate to Awice, having to tip large amounts of money on your wins to pay the dealers is a ****ty thing to be socially forced to do.
how does tipping work in the states? i know in the UK the tipping system is fked. unfortunately any tips that get given get shared between ALL staff working that shift.
some staff are completely incompetent and ignorant/rude so why do i want to essentially tip them for being useless? i always make a point to ask (even tho i know the answer) if i'm allowed to tip them directly (the waiter/dealer who are providing the service) and obviously get told no but them/the boss standing near by. I kind of hope one day that the tipping system will be adjusted so that the people who are good at their job/care about their customers reap the rewards. If the bosses continue to come across people like me who make it obvious they won't tip with the way the current system works then just maybe they might push to one day change it... who knows?
it's similar when giving money to charity, how much of that money you give actually goes to the charity itself? and how much goes to some random top guy driving a ferrari with a 3m pound house?
Disregard this, tips aren't shared evenly unless its company policy to do so, I work In a bar and if someone gave me £unlimited its mine. The reason restaurants split tips is because backroom staff (chefs) who have a huge part to play in your overall experience can't be tipped directly can they. So split tips also go to kitchen which seems fair.
dude...youre making an unbelievable pressure on yourself with such a ridiculous challenge. youre sne so go and earn money with that status instead of burn it.
you werent one of the very best in the 180s so cool down, do the correct brm.
it might be hard to say you failed in that challenge. but to fail such a challenge is ok. to loose all the money u earned in the past 3 years, only because of your blog and this thread is even harder and senseless in the end
