I once participated in a "Celebrity Waiter" event where we waiters were to fill a table with friends (donors) and serve them lunch. I was lucky to have at my table some people with adequate resources to make "nice" donations.
It became very obvious that it was a contest between the waiters/tables to see which could generate the most cash, as the coordinator rang a bell and announced each donation by table. I felt guilty participating in this blatant fleecing of my parents and friends, and was relieved when the final bell sounded.
After the money was counted, the waiters lunched with the coordinator, during which I was surprised to find that he was commissioned at something like 35%.
How would YOU feel?
