That's fine.  I don't really like going out to eat anymore anyway.  There is still time to learn to code!

honestly tipping is irritating - just roll the service charge into the bill and make it easier.

I mean, I guess maybe young people who never work wait staff jobs might not realize that they get paid $2 an hour and only make above minimum wage if people do actually tip them.

Honestly, maybe it should be a law that has to be on menus... then maybe the owners of restaurants will get slammed into changing how it all works.

At a real restaurant the waiter has to constantly come by and kiss your ass, asking if you want anything and run back and forth with water or condiments or whatever. At a fast food place they hand you a bag.

It is wrong that waitstaff can be paid less than minimum wage, much less their actual value. This is the original sin.

Another bit of nonsense that the POS ant-tippers have is that the restaurant must make sure they get minimum wage if no one tips. First, I have no idea where that law applies. Not everywhere. Second, why should they have to accept only minimum wage.

The ones that say the system should be different: True, but it ain't. Not tipping will not change the system. It is just stealing from a working person. Tippers are not sheep propping up a corrupt system. Only new laws will change the system.

Agreed that this "article" (along with many others from MarketWatch) is fake as fark.

That being said, it's pretty sad that we've come to a point where we're asked whether we'd like to leave a tip when paying in advance for a stupid everything bagel with lox, cream cheese and capers.

American tipping culture is stupid

Sister worked her way through school as a waitress. She would tip 10%, her wife tipped 20%, Hubby & I double the tax (15%). I wish it was inclusif. No one should have to work at less than minimum wage. But, how about all elected officials are paid minimum wage in their district? Bet we'd see a change then, eh? I hate finishing a nice meal & then having to do maths. Ruins romance. Pay a fair wage!

Whether I tip depends on whether I or a server carry the food to the table.

It's true that IF waitstaff are being paid a fair wage, THEN you shouldn't have to tip.  It's not rocket surgery.


HOWEVER,  US waitstaff are NOT being paid a fair hourly wage in most places. There may be exceptions, but as a rule it's less than minimum wage.  For the love of the gods, tip Americans.

Not tipping will change the system, but very slowly and painfully for people who have to take waiter jobs.

Everyone says, "pass a law", but no one votes on that issue at election time.

Either personally ensure it is an issue in the next election, or stop going to restaurants that use tipping and tell the manager why.

It's never come up as a ballot measure nor do I ever remember being asked to sign something to get it on the ballot.

I tip.  In fact, this evening I tipped 25%.  I should not need to tip.

Over the last year and half, I really dislike the Restaurant industry.  The food quality has slowly declined as costs were cut, and cooking is playing a telephone game with how to cook the meals to the point no one knows how to properly cook, and the wait staff have to suffer serving bad meals.

If i really do not want to cook, i just order carryout and pick it up myself.

pay waitstaff a proper wage, and leave the tips out
