    From Twitter:

    “Someone stole my debit card, went and spent $60 at a restaurant and only left a $4 tip. It’s not even your card, and you leave a $4 tip. Unreal”

    Made me smile and think of all those VMB posts proudly proclaiming their frugality, as it relates to tipping. HA!

    I understand frugality, as I've been shithouse poor. Back then, I didn't go out to eat very often either..

    When I was shithouse poor, I was working service jobs - bartending, waiting tables, delivering pizzas.. etc..

    A good tip, or a heavy tipper was a Godsend at times.

    Bad tippers leave a bad taste in my mouth.

    Tipping, in this country, is a custom, and a norm. I hate the "In (insert foreign country here) we don't tip because..blah blah blah.."

    I love to drink, unfortunately to excess more often than not, and tipping excessively particularly in a casino keeps my drink full and wait times for said drink at a minimum.

    If you're a shitty tipper, you're a shitty person. ;)

    Unless of course the service is poor...I do adjust my tip when I'm faced with seemingly non-caring staff. I also factor in what I can see and know there's a lot I can't see (back of the house). Just the other day I left a very generous tip to a server in a sports-pub who was running her butt off...it wasn't rediculously busy, but she clearly had too large of a section for one person to handle well. The service kinda sucked, but she was doing all she could to get to everyone and she had a wonderful attitude.

    Working in the food service industry is difficult and I always try to see the whole picture when things don't turn out well.

    There are bad servers and an equal amount of bad patrons. There are times a good server encounters a bad patron or vice versa. Result is a bad experience all around for others that come in later.

    I'd love to see a bad patron interact with a bad server. Must be fun to watch.
