Why you might ask? Because I always assume there will be someone else that will tip a decent sum that will make up for what I didn't tip. I know that waiters/waitresses make like 2 bucks an hour. Let's say they work for 8 hours. Average tip is like 5 bucks. If they serve about 10 tables and each table tips 5 bucks, then they get their minimum wage for the day. It always usually works out.
Plus, why should I tip when it isn't necessary? In this economy, there is no way i'm going to be tipping. I'm going to be pinching every penny I can.

But where does the pride come from in all of this? It sounds like you're just cheap to me, rather than having any legitimate objection to tipping in general. --- http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i215/estonc/grizzly_bear_chairs_2.jpg

True. When I'm ordering a pizza I never tip. When I'm at a restaurant with friends, I never tip until someone calls me out and says "Dude, you need to tip". So I usually tip about a dollar no matter how much the meal costed.

That just makes you a cheapskate, and someone waiters/waitresses won't favor serving, when you're at a restaurant. Believe me, since I've known plenty of people in the past who have waited tables. If you were talking about a tip jar at Starbucks or an independent coffee shop(unless the service was unusually good, and it's next to never that it is that great to warrant a tip), I'd agree with you. But we're talking about a job where employees are paid LESS than the minimum wage, and are rewarded based on how good the service is(of course this is as much as in a perfect world, they'd be paid a regular wage like other employees). Well, enjoy the crappy service you'll get later, when you return to that restaurant..... --- Kenny Williams must go as Sox GM.

I agree with DumpsterMcNuggets. At a sit down restaurant, bar, or when ordering food for delivery, you should tip a few bucks. Places with tip jars are your choice. --- There isn't any metal as good as Firefly. ;_;-IronTusk http://www.last.fm/user/blackmetalcore

i dont tip either, for 2 reasons:
1. you usually pay after the meal, so you dont have to worry about them messing with my food
2. they usually already include a tip in the bill that is only mentioned in small print somewhere or on a little sign by the cash register, so alot of times your actually double tipping and the waitor/waitress isnt required to tell you or give the extra tip back --- --- yo yo yo its the m*********** grizzmoe
