Mike Larry has a question about bathroom attendants

I've always been a decent tipper for certain occupations (waiters, valets, bartenders, etc) because I recognize that they're underpaid by their employer in anticipation of making it up in gratuities. Does this apply to bathroom attendants? I can't lie; I freaking hate throwin a dollar at someone to hand me a paper towel.

Yes, I'm at a club and I'm bored

Meh. If I'm feeling generous, and I have some cash on me, I'll throw them a buck. But only once. Not every time I use the bathroom.

Re: Mike Larry has a question about bathroom attendants

Well just to let you know their job as bathroom attendence is not just to pass you a napkin when you are finish , they job is to clean any mess that anybody else might do , so when you need the bathroom it will be clean for you .

I don't give them **** unless I ask for paper towel, cologne, etc.

If they hand me it I usually say no.

Can't stand bathroom attendants. Yes i'm socially awkward.

I can grab a paper towel myself. I can park my own car (nobody drives my beast, especially after watching Ferris Beuller). And, I rarely tip MORE than 10% to waiters/waitresses. In fact, I expect a bl0w job (and a smile) after they receive my 10% generous GIFT. They have their salary. If they don't like their job they can go WITHout any income for 7 years at university like I did, then pay off student loans for years afterwards,..again... like I did. I don't owe anybody my hard-earned money. I'm a bad one to ask. Yes. I am a d1ck. Sue me.





(why does my GF call me a cheapskate?)

They like to take the paper towels out of the machine and force you to take one from them.

I hate them.

As is always said, their salary has the expectation of tips built in (waiters/waitresses) so you really are just a dick. At restaurants, the waiters and waitresses are providing a service.

That said, I certainly don't always tip at coffee shops, gas stations and in bathrooms when the service is provided in a half assed fashion.

The bathrooms at clubs is technically free, so thats 0 X 10% = 0. I'm not about to pay a guy to hand me a towel....its borderline extortion.....

I hate the bathroom attendants at our local club. Guy sets up shop and blocks 1 sink with his chair and then turns the water and holds out a soap dispenser you as you approach so you can't do anything about it. The worst part is that club offers no soap or paper towels independently so if he leaves early (which he does on slow nights) you have NO soap or paper towels.

I tipped him a couple of bucks once when I was too smashed to know better, but I'll never do it again, especially after he left me stranded with no soap last time.

Can't hardly whiz anywhere in Italy without paying from half- to a Euro-and-a-half for the privilege of walking in. A restroom cleaning lady (sometimes hired by the restroom facility's owner, sometimes they just take over) sets up a desk with a price sign in front of the door, and no money, no pissy. France and Spain are getting just as bad...

Back in the states, sure, I'll slip the guy a buck, I mean, why not... this is the very best job he could get, right? Or he wouldn't be there. Jesus, it's just a buck... if you were in his piss-covered shoes, wouldn't you want someone to help you out?

Depends on the attendant. Had a guy in a strip club at the beach that was amazing at his job. He'd have the water already warm and running, soap in hand ready to put some in your hand. He had everything imaginable on the counter if you needed it. I tipped him a 5 I think.

I've seen old guys that just give you a towel. Tip a buck once.

Maybe you should step up your standards in a GF & find one that makes more than minimum wage. Servers come & go. They don't remember sh1te. They come & go from minimum wage job to minimum wage job.
