​An Open Letter To The People Who Don’t Tip Their Servers

This one's for you.

Dear Person Who Has No Idea How Much The 0 In The “Tip:" Line Matters,

I want to by asking you a simple question: Why?

Is it because you can't afford it? Is it because you are blind to the fact that the tip you leave is how the waiter/waitress serving you is making their living? Is it because you're just lazy and you “don't feel like it"?

Is it because you think that, while taking care of not only your table but at least three to five others, they took too long bringing you that side of ranch dressing? Or is it just because you're unaware that as a server these people make $2.85 an hour plus TIPS?

The average waiter/waitress is only supposed to be paid $2.13 an hour plus tips according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

That then leaves the waiter/waitress with a paycheck with the numbers **$0.00** and the words “Not a real paycheck." stamped on it. Therefore these men and women completely rely on the tips they make during the week to pay their bills.

So, with that being said, I have a few words for those of you who are ignorant enough to leave without leaving a few dollars in the “tip:" line.

Imagine if you go to work, the night starts off slow, then almost like a bomb went off the entire workplace is chaotic and you can't seem to find a minute to stop and breathe, let alone think about what to do next.

Imagine that you are helping a total of six different groups of people at one time, with each group containing two to 10 people.

Imagine that you are working your ass off to make sure that these customers have the best experience possible. Then you cash them out, you hand them a pen and a receipt, say “Thank you so much! It was a pleasure serving you, have a great day!"

Imagine you walk away to attempt to start one of the 17 other things you need to complete, watch as the group you just thanked leaves, and maybe even wave goodbye.

Imagine you are cleaning up the mess that they have so kindly left behind, you look down at the receipt and realize there's a sad face on the tip line of a $24.83 bill.

Imagine how devastated you feel knowing that you helped these people as much as you could just to have them throw water on the fire you need to complete the night.

Now, realize that whenever you decide not to tip your waitress, this is nine out of 10 times what they go through. I cannot stress enough how important it is for people to realize that this is someone's profession — whether they are a college student, a single mother working their second job of the day, a new dad who needs to pay off the loan he needed to take out to get a safer car for his child, your friend, your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother, you.

If you cannot afford to tip, do not come out to eat. If you cannot afford the three alcoholic drinks you gulped down, plus your food and a tip do not come out to eat.

If you cannot afford the $10 wings that become half-off on Tuesdays plus that water you asked for, do not come out to eat.

If you cannot see that the person in front of you is working their best to accommodate you, while trying to do the same for the other five tables around you, do not come out to eat. If you cannot realize that the man or woman in front of you is a real person, with their own personal lives and problems and that maybe these problems have led them to be the reason they are standing in front of you, then do not come out to eat.

As a server myself, it kills me to see the people around me being deprived of the money that they were supposed to earn. It kills me to see the three dollars you left on a $40 bill. It kills me that you cannot stand to put yourself in our shoes — as if you're better than us. I wonder if you realize that you single-handedly ruined part of our nights.

I wonder if maybe one day you will be in our shoes, and I hope to God no one treats you how you have treated us. But if they do, then maybe you'll realize how we felt when you left no tip after we gave you our time.

Why I Refuse To Watch Any Cliche Movie On Netflix

"Sierra Burgess is a loser?" No thanks!


Netflix has been known to put out new movies and TV shows faster than they can make a new Marvel movie. This past year has been no exception: "To All The Boys I've Loved", "Sierra Burgess is a Loser", "The Perfect Date" and many more romcoms that don't feature Noah Centineo. These movies have been getting a lot of buzz on social media. Here is why I don't watch any of those movies just because someone on my feed tells me to.

Netflix doesn't have to spend any money on advertisement!

Every single time that you rave about the new movies Netflix puts out, all you are doing is putting money in their pockets. Netflix relies on this social phenomenon to boost their ratings and views all while they do absolutely nothing!

Remember when they spent that huge amount to keep "Friends" streaming online? All the media coverage on that basically gave them back every penny they spent on that deal. This generation is so obsessed with what everyone else is doing that they scroll through endless feeds looking at what everybody else is watching and doing.

And what about the famous "13 Reasons Why" explosion that happened a couple years ago?

We ALL know about "13 Reasons Why". Any kid in our generation has to have heard about it and all the publicity that went with it. A school in my district had to SEND LETTERS home to parents warning them about the explicit details and graphic events that occurred in the life of Hannah Baker. This TV show illustrated just how social media is messing this generation up. The worst part, I believed nothing has changed. Kids are still coming home lonely and isolated. They are still missing out of social connections that stem from face to face interaction. The uglest part is that they are still killing themselves because of these issues. This generation definitely needs to have a serious makeover that involves less screen time and more memories.

This is all a part of Netflix's marketing tactic. They strive on the iGen users to do their work for them. I may sound like a hypocrite, but I only watch rom-coms that I feel I will enjoy (and that aren't copycat films). Thank you for coming to my TED TALK.
