Why take away 100% when the client demands a refund?
Imagine this, an Indian woman has a wedding company, she orders my $20 Facebook package which includes not just one ad, but all the demographics, interests, i.e. I have to use the Facebook editor to find that information.
I deliver, and she’s not happy with the ad, so she asks for a revision. I do the revision, then she tells me this:
“Hi, I am sorry need to cancel this order as I feel you are not able to understand my requirements. Probably my line of business is new to you. Kindly cancel this.”
Then I told her:
“I am very disappointed, what about the demographics and interests I found? What about the time I spent? Who compensate me for that? I deserve at least $10:”
Of course, I’m not going to get it. Not every buyer has a conscience, some are happy to treat us worse than servants. Best thing to do is be grateful when you get paid, and try to forget the people that didn’t pay you.
P.S. Tips in restaurants are shared with lots of people, not just the waiter.
"Many restaurants require or recommend their wait staff to tip a certain percent of their tips or net sales to the various support staff. All the wait staff may be required to put in 20% of their tips, or 1% of their net sales, into a shared pot that is divided by managers between bussers, bartenders and hosts. Some state laws prohibit tip sharing to be extended to supervisors and managers, but they rarely make the list anyway."
Restaurant work is a team effort. You may be the one taking the orders, but someone else refills the cups, brings the bread, etc.
