I have been a server for three years. I have had customers leave me religious pamphlets, business cards, left over change, and somethings nothing at all as a tip, needless to say none of those things pay my college loans. As a server, never knowing if you will make enough money to pay your bills, is stressful and an ongoing reality. Getting a paycheck at the end of the week that says, $0.00 and this is non negotiable is almost a slap in the face, when you have only change in your wallet. Living Off Tips is unreliable and most of the time, not enough to live off of.
