  • I get the self-defeating maelstrom "these Millennials create", but the fact remains: Skip categorization as some people suck and most people suck at tipping. It is 100% inappropriate not to leave a tip for good service unless it is a directive of the establishment.

  • As a former restaurateur, this fits with the trend of increased popularity of fast casual. And with low wage growth, my guess is that Millennials still want to enjoy going out but don’t have as much money as they’d like. Tipping is the easiest way to control the cost of eating out - especially as prices

  • Wow! That’s a mighty broad brush considering the very small sample size; according to a new surveyed released by CreditCards.com of 1,000 participants. I dine out often in the company of millennials (our family is full of them) and they are not only great tippers, they’re famous for giving yelp/google

  • Normally I would be up in arms to see yet another "millennials are ruining..." story here, but Matt Schultz of Credit cards.com has an important point here:

    The fact that waiters at these restaurants are younger and probably are millennials is absolutely self defeating.

    I'd argue this motive is set

    I'd argue this motive is set due to the rise of QSRs where there's little to no wait staff and just cashiers. Fast Food 2.0.

  • You would think they would be better since a lot of the service industry people are also millennials. I think more included tips of around 15% would make since just to make sure the employees get something. If the service is bad then you should give feedback to the manager and they typically can take care of you.

  • I am getting increasingly tired of this "millennials" garbage. Every generation has sucked in some way shape or form and ours is no different.

  • As someone who’s a millennial that goes out with other millennials: it’s true millennials could do better. I’m out here dropping 25% at least because I once made the mistake of leaving a $3 tip on a $50 check because I wasn’t actually considering the amount (it was mostly drinks and I was paying for

    As someone who’s a millennial that goes out with other millennials: it’s true millennials could do better. I’m out here dropping 25% at least because I once made the mistake of leaving a $3 tip on a $50 check because I wasn’t actually considering the amount (it was mostly drinks and I was paying for two so it was just a genuine lack of focus on my end). That scarred me for life because I felt so guilty when I realized. Ever since, I’ve been rewarding good and bad servers for that mistake alone. But I’ll watch my friends or even my boyfriend try to do what I’ll NEVER MAKE THE MISTAKE OF DOING AGAIN on a regular basis. I get a bit sassy ‘bout it.

    Then again, I’ve seen worse from other generations, like leaving god awful notes on the tip section of a receipt, like “get a real job.” I mean, if you consider that a better tip than, say, 10%, sure...millennials are just the worst.

  • Ironic given their rate of participation in the gig economy. Then again, maybe because of their rate of participation in the gig economy.

  • Gotta care about where people are and what they are doing for you.

  • Haha wonder why? Jk
