His Colleague Spent More Time Flirting with The Waitresses than Pouring Drinks, so He Split Their Tips 75:25, he Is Furious and Other Colleagues Agree with Him

A man asked his manager to change how tips were allocated to him and his bartending colleague because his colleague barely did any work, leaving him to pick up the slack. Here is what the man had to say:

They Split The Tips 50:50

The man said, “I work in a restaurant as a service bartender. We make a percentage on the amount of drink sales we get in a tip out from our waitresses. We split that money evenly. I normally don’t have a problem with this but we recently got a new bartender and he just sucks.”

His Colleague Didn’t Do His Job

 

The new bartender lacked a work ethic and spent more time flirting with the waitresses than actually doing his job. He would arrive late, leave early, and neglect opening and closing duties. Instead, he left the majority of the work to the man.

But Everyone Liked Him

The man explained, “He is the definition of a personality hire. It’s frustrating cause everyone likes him and no one notices how little work he does. He cracks a few jokes, makes a drink, and then goes to the bathroom for 20 minutes. Does nothing, goes on break for half an hour, and then to top it off complains about how many drinks we’re supposed to make.”

He Proved How Little Work His Colleague Did

Feeling frustrated with the situation, the man decided to keep track of his and the new bartender’s order tickets to demonstrate the difference in their workload. At the end of the shift, the man had completed about three times the number of orders as the new bartender.

The man explained what happened next, “While he was in the bathroom when we should have been closing, I took our tickets to my manager and showed him. I told him that I did the majority of the orders, opened, and closed. It wasn’t right for me to give him half the tips when he messed around for most of the shift.”

Who Agreed With Him

The manager agreed with the man’s assessment and allowed him to adjust the tip-out to better reflect their respective workloads. The man decided to split it 75/25, although he felt that 80/20 would have been fairer.

However, the new bartender became upset and accused the man of stealing, leading to a heated argument. The man explained, “His waitress buddies took his side over mine and they all think I’m wrong.” In response, the man told the new bartender to either contribute more or take it up with the manager.

Was The Man In The Wrong?

The man acknowledged that he was acting somewhat selfishly, wanting more money for the work he did. He also recognized that he didn’t have the same financial responsibilities as the new bartender, who had a child and a second job. Despite this, he didn’t think that made it okay for the bartender to leave him to pick up the slack while he didn’t do any work.

One person said, “If you did it without the manager’s approval then you would be in the wrong.

However, you had proof in the stack of tickets, opening and closing the bar are discreet jobs that are easy to see who does it and not. The manager’s approval was a good move with the proof you showed. Pretty sure the manager would rather keep you as the bartender than the other guy, all other things being equal. However, it is important to keep up good relations with the waitstaff.”

“Anyone who works in the service industry understands how tips work. Especially if you have to share tips with someone for doing the same work. If your other coworkers are siding with him, do less work to get your point across.”
