National Waiters and Waitresses Day
-- Here are five ways waiters get you to tip them more.
1. Breasts A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior showed that waitresses with larger self-reported breast size received bigger tips, while a second study in the International Journal of Hospitality Management found that waitresses' use of makeup significantly increased their tips. Female servers can also increase their tips by drawing a smiley face on the check--but this doesn't work as well for male servers.
2. Be Friendly The friendlier the server, the more likely a customer will leave a generous tip. Friendly behavior includes smiling, greeting and even touching customers and crouching down beside the customers while taking orders.
3. Copycats Restaurant servers who copy their customers' behavior get double the tips of servers who don't do this. And the No. 1 way to mirror the customer--and get a big payoff for doing it--is to repeat back the order, according to a study from the Netherlands. Mimicry creates bonds between people.
4. Sweet Treats Leaving candy with the check can result in a higher tip. One study found that tips increase by about 20 percent when servers give diners two pieces of chocolate along with the bill.
5. Pay With Plastic Diners who use credit cards instead of cash to pay their bills are more likely to leave a more generous tip.
