    Other industries are expected to pay their employees. The task of waiting tables is one of the most noble profession of which I am aware. Why shouldn't their employer pay them? You have to admit, it's bizarre.

    Burping etiquette isn't really relevant to this discussion.

    Employers should pay their employees and not expect the customers to subsidize part of the wage. Bottom line.

    Any gratuity should just be extra money in addition to a paycheck

    He wants it to be tax exempt - as if tips aren't already a huge tax cheat as is. Like anyone claims all their tips.

    Yep. Not bad manners, just good beer.

    Better to burp, and taste it, than to fart, and waste it.
