I'm not against tipping but I am against places that makes their help depend on tipping saying how much you should tip. What and who I tip in my business. If I am done with my dinner and the service has been horrible how at that time is a manager going to make it better or fix it? A manager's job is to be on the floor watching his staff and seeing who is and who isn't doing the job that restaurant wants done. As a rule if the food and service is avg I'll tip 25% unless it's a buffet type place and all they do is refill my water glass. They I leave a buck or two at the most. As for fast food forget it, 10 to 30% of the time they can't get the order right and those places for sure never tip down so not going to hand the person running the cash register anything. They're so stupid most of the time they'd think it was to pay for my purchase.

The tipping system rewards attention to detail and persona. If you can't make money in the service industry, its not for you.

Hundreds of Roger Stone's have come out of the woodwork Showing the Corruption of the Deep State and the Democrats and Some Republicans .They can't put all of them in jail .And Mueller found no Russian involvement With TRUMP. This was a political hit job.

^^^ But Mueller found plenty of involvement between Trump's Campaign Staff and the Russians, didn't he Rocker?

But just MAYBE, in a complete reversal of Trump's personality, egoism and "management style" before and after the Election, JUST MAYBE, Donald Trump didn't know a damn thing about what his Staff was doing, right?

22 Indictments, 8 convictions (so far), and the open question to the Attorney General as to whether a Sitting President could be charged with Criminal Activity that occurred before he took Office!
That is what Mueller's investigation resulted in - in the Real World.

There should be a solid movement to educate about today's percentage of tipping. In MO, servers are no longer receiving $2.13 per hour. They have received a 122% raise on their base salary so far and will soon be making $6 per hour before their tip in 2022. So, if you tip 14% on a $100 check, they server just made $20 in one hour on just your table alone.
