You don't have to if you really hate it, I guess I just do it cause its expected. Plus, if someone provides a nice service, I like to reward them for it

That is the correct attitude. If you don't want to tip, then don't eat out. Am I correct in assuming that the times you do eat out you do tip?

Because if you're eating at a restaurant you can afford it and if you're working at one you need all the money you can get.

You cheap-ass mother ****ers. $8 an hour and you think you shouldn't have to tip them?

Here's something to lull on. In Australia most waiters/waitresses would be on at least $20 an hour assuming they are over 18 (no tips). The service here is generally SHIT. No water refills, no one cares about you as long as they've got your order and gotten your food. Have to ask for dessert menus most of the time.

I went to the USA this year and the service was 100x that of what we get here. I'm more than happy to tip a measly 15% to get that great service, especially considering in most states they aren't even making 8 FREAKING DOLLARS an hour.. whether they are making minimum wage or not, tip them you cheapskates.

TL;DR: Get a job you ****ing bums.

So let's get this straight...where is tipping accepted and at what rates?

Bar ~ $1 dollar on a $4-8 dollar drink
Restaurant ~ 15-20%
Delivery Drivers ~ Round up method, i.e 18.25 would be a $20

I can honestly say, having done all three jobs, that they don't deserve a tip anymore than the person working at the local CVS or Walgreens or Walmart.

Now, those are shitty jobs for little pay. You have to stand all day, you move boxes, you gotta check out person after ungrateful person, you gotta help people make decisions about products you know or don't care about, and you have to deal with RETURNS.

When I worked as a bartender/catering company I got paid $15 an hour (3 hour events) to pour wine and a choice of 5 easy as hell to make beverages. The actual bartending part lasted maybe 1.5 hours. Got tipped about $1 from everyone, made $50-150 in tips usually. Equated usually to $145 for 4 hours for doing such easy work.

To do this day, I don't think I deserved any sort of tip for doing that. It's a good gig and I should be doing it with a smile on my face. On the other hand, when I worked at Longs Drugs I walked old ladies bags to their car maybe 500 times, and at most got offered something (gum, or $1) a few times. And I lived in Silicon Valley so it's not like people didn't have money.

Edit: If you work at clothing store, offer opinions etc I understand you get rewarded with sales commission sometimes. In the same respect, unless you work at a fancy restaurant and are some guru of grub offering recommendations you shouldn't be getting a tip. The chick that works at Denny's that says whatchya want? Stack of pancakes, aight. That's not tip worthy to me. Doesn't mean she works any less hard, just that she is lower on the totem pole. If she wants to stack bread, she should get a different job at a real restaurant. If she can't move up..i sympathize but i don't want to pay 50% taxes, and i don't want to have to tip to subsidize other people's lives.

Thats horshit. Many of these waiters get paid under the table and at any decent place they are making over triple the minimum wage. I made more as a waiter then i do in my current job at an hourly rate.

All valid points. People who've worked in retail know the hell it can be to work in retail, yet no one complaining about those people not getting tips. And please no one bring in the under minimum wage excuse, not for places like California.

I'm confident the time will come when tipping is less frequent. The white population is on the decline, and with their decline also goes their customs. This place is about to become the United Asians of Mexico

This is a logical fallacy. Many waiters? So not all. I'd say most don't get paid triple minimum wage. So your point is completely invalid.
