Well I didn't steal anything. It would appear I pay what I'm asked to pay. I see no reason to tip a waiter more than a janitor, bank teller, or gas staion clerk. I'm not stiffing anyone. I have zero obligation to pay people money that isn't on a bill. All complaints about wages should be addressed to the bosses of these employees. I'm not interested in what people are getting paid when I am buying something. It's a clever way of tricking me into paying more money. It's stupid and sad that people act like this is some moral thing.

I go by the standard 20%. My rule is, never blame the waiter/waitress for a under performing meal, they didn't cook it. If your going to go out and spend a hundred or more on dinner, pay the guy/gal 20 bucks, they make minimum. However I have given 5 bucks to a few who we're just terrible.
If a waitress goes above and beyond, keeps my iced tea full, keeps the idle banter to a minimum, and doesn't eff up my order
