SERVERS, here’s a tip for you: join TikTok ASAP.
TikTok is full of genius hacks from bartenders and food industry servers who have increased their income with just a few easy tricks.
Claudia, who goes by @uwutingzz on TikTok, is an experienced server. Typically, workdays when she trains a new employee are her easiest shifts.
But recently, she noticed a significant change in the way customers treated her – and it had nothing to do with her service.
“Today, I had a really easy day,” Claudia said brightly in a TikTok video. “I followed the tips given to me on TikTok by other servers.”
First, she applied the tried-and-true beauty hacks that have been circulating on the platform for months.
“They say if you do the eye dot thingies and if you do pigtails, you’ll get higher sales and higher tips,” Claudia said.
Then, she revealed a product she was excited to test out as a way to increase her tips.
“I recently bought this pheromone oil to mix in with my perfume and make me smell better,” Claudia said, holding up a vial of oil.
It was a rollerball bottle of Pure Instinct Pheromone-Infused Oil, which retails at $16.95.
According to the product description, Pure Instinct “blends with your skin PH to create a one-of-a-kind scent.”
Claudia said perfume is already a vital part of her daily beauty routine.
“I really love scents,” she said. “You know, it’s my thing.”
After applying the Pure Instinct scent before work, she saw a major change.
“Usually, I make around eight to 10 percent because we’re so understaffed,” Claudia said.
While she always tried not to take skimpy tips personally, Claudia was treated much better after she started using the scent.
“I noticed my customers were a lot nicer to me today,” she said.
She saw higher tips and kinder treatment, which she credited to the oil.
Viewers were impressed by her immediate success.
“You’re so pretty!” one fan wrote. “I hope it works for you.”
Other servers tossed in their favorite tricks for getting higher gratuities.
“Red lips, only on Saturday night,” one fellow waitress said.
“Oh word?” Claudia wrote back. “Let me try this out.”
