What we're about
This site is dedicated to all those who make a
living, or try to make a living off of gratuity. TIPS stands for "to insure
prompt service." If you provide this service and get nothing in return, usually
all you can do is complain to your co-workers. Now you can complain to the world
and expose those who take advantage of your hard work.
Here you will find the
Lousy Tipper Database
and the Lousy Tipper Blog. Use the database to list all those who thought
they could stiff you in anonymity. Use the Blog to tell the stories that make
you laugh and sometimes cry. Finally, please help spread the word. In the
future we will be selling bumper stickers, business cards, and other items to
let people know there is a consequence. In the meantime, if you would
on a few of the ads to the right, it would be greatly appreciated.
search page is finally up. Now you can search for
bad tippers by last name, city, state or all three. Happy hunting. Also, the
tipping chart is up. Here we list many different
types of service workers and the suggested tip amounts.
Also, check out gas buddy above. Just insert your zip code and it will
list the gas stations with the lowest gas prices in your area.

What's a bad Tip?
I've actually had a lot of customers ask me
what's an appropriate tip. The answer is somewhat subjective but there are some
general guidelines. For a waiter/waitress, never less than %15, unless the
service is just awful. If the server is just totally rude and doing a bad job on
purpose then it's appropriate to leave whatever you choose, although, you should
leave a note or let someone know why your tip is so small. If the server does
an excellent job, 20% or more is appropriate. I also take into account how much
time the server spent running around to bring me stuff. For a delivery driver
it's a little different. Drivers pay for their own gas and these days that aint
cheap. If it's a small order, say under $10.00, a dollar is the minimum. However,
two to three dollars is average. For larger orders, let's say over $10.00, $15%
to 20% is customary. If the pizza or whatever gets there late, it's usually not
the fault of the driver and he/she shouldn't be penalized. For guidelines on how
much to tip other service workers, check out our new
tipping chart, which list
recommendations for all sorts of situations.
Ok, here are some
ground rules that you MUST follow if you're going to use this site and post bad
tippers on the database. No really old people. I know they're often
terrible tippers, but they're old. They grew up in a time where a quarter really
meant something, and they often live on a fixed income. So in my book and on
my website they get a pass. Also, no handicapped people. Their life is rough
enough and they too also usually live on a fixed income. Finally, no kids. We
all know that parents often give kids the money to get the pizza at the door and
the amount includes the tip but the kids pocket the extra and stiff the driver.
This is wrong but they're kids and don't know any better. Besides, I did it a
time or two when I was kid. Shame. Finally, if anybody else has an idea of an
off limits person, please post it on the Lousy Blog or send it to me via email.
All post are solely the representation of the poster and are not to be
considered a statement by the lousytippers.com website or owners.
Lousytippers.com has no way of verifying the truthfulness of any post. If you
believe you were falsely accused of being a being a bad tipper, put your claim
on the blog or send it to me via email. I will post your objection on the blog
and if the original poster does not write a response verifying the info, within
one week, I will delete your name from the Lousy Tipper database. Second chances
are a wonderful thing.
