    The way it stands now? I do not really consider tips as part of going out to eat as the tipping part is -as of now-all about something called service. You do not deliver it? Do not expect a tip. Should you go out to eat thinking you are gonna leave a tip? Sure. But if you do not get the service you desire? The tip you leave should reflect that.
    I don't think it should be mandated in most cases, though I am a fan of it for large parties. It should be based on their level of service, but if it was standard service, I always leave 20%. I normally don't drop below 15% cause I know what a crappy job it is.

I waited on them with as good of service as I would have anybody else. Did I get bummed I was not gonna get a tip? Sure but loved their honesty upfront. Do I know they were really poor? No. That was the thing really bothered me. But oh well.
    It never wrecked my night, cause it happens all the time. But I still think they should stay home. If they're that destitute that they can't afford the tip, they really shouldn't be wasting their money dining out anyway.

    I think people would be shocked if they knew the number of peoples who are subjected to racism on a daily basis.
    I've been called "gringo" a couple times by first generation Mexican kids, but that's it. I'm Jewish, so you'd think that would have come up first, but hey.
