Earguy: When I was a kid, tipping was 10%. Yes, it's gone up.My dad clung to 10% for far too long, and only increased his tipping when me, a teenager, started leaving my own money on the table in addition to his.
uncoveror: Baloney! 10% is for service that is only adequate, 15% for good, 20% or more for really amazing. If you get bad service, it is a matter of debate whether leaving change or leaving nothing complains louder.When I delivered pizza, I would get about a buck whether the bill was $10, or a party order of $100. No one did percentages.I got paid more than minimum, but still, a pizza driver comes to your home. A waiter or waitress barely comes to your table any more. After taking your order, the food runners take over from there.
