If I wanted to tip someone, I would go to a stripbar or something. It might be because i'm European but why would you pay more then is asked when you go to a restaurant. Going to a restaurant is usually expensive enough as it is.

I agree, in the UK and Europe as a whole, we have a very different attitude to tipping, possibly because waiters/waitresses get better wages. In the USA though, I think that it is a bit ridiculous: I was in LA, and I went to the lavatory, where there was a man who would hand you paper towels straight out of the dispenser to dry your hands with, expecting a $1 tip for his "services". That is too far.

Courtesy. You don't have to be courteous, but waiters do rely on their tips.

I totally agree. I tip when I get quality service, not when some sour faced employee looks daggers at me because they don't earn a lot. No waiter/waitress working at a job ever expects to earn great money from the offset, why should that expectation change?

I was a waiter and was payed slightly above minimum + tips meaning i would get an extra £20-£40 a week. hardly £2 an hour.

lol, a waiter in norway in a resturant earns around 25-30 dollars an hour. depending on which resturant ofc, working at a burger king wouldnt get you more than maybe $21

That's when the labor commissioner needs to step in. I remember when car salesmen used to make solely commission. Even then they were making $2,500-$8,000 a month. Now in this recession, for the first time ever, they are making waaaay less than that. The car dealers cannot only pay them commission. They have to AT LEAST pay them $8 an hour even if they only sold 1 car all month with a $500 commission.

in america it is expected to tip. thats why a waiters wage is 5 dollars below min. If an employer can get away with paying you less they will do so

What if they have a really bad attitude?  I should still feel obligated to tip the proper amount?  Who's to say this women didn't have an extremely negative attitude.  By reading her post, I would think she would be the same at work.
