    If you're sitting down eating and the meal was good and service was good - 20% is normal. Anything less is disheartening and anything more is much appreciated.
    So everyone I've ever met who says 15% is standard is wrong?

    even wikipedia tells me the average in Canada at least is 15. Maybe not in the states though? That's weird, everything I've ever heard says 15 - a common rule of thumb I've heard is 10% for bad service, 15% average, 20% good, though I almost never go below 15 anyway.

    It's going to come in a glass no matter what. The general rule is a dollar a drink/beer. If you start a tab and accumulate drinks that way, at the end of the night either a dollar a drink or 20% of the tab. Whichever is more appropriate considering your level of service. For instance, you drink two L.I.'s and stay at your bar seat for 3 hours. Dude. Tip five bucks. You drink two L.I.'s and are moving about. Two bucks. I know it seems weird but if you are hogging prime territory for money making - make it worth the bartender's while. Normally, a dollar a drink will be appropriate.

    U.S. 20% is normal now. Been so for a while. Don't listen to Oprah. Servers get below minimum wage in the US. It's like 4 or 5 bucks now. I don't know about Canada.

    I'm personally not a big fan of tipping. I mean, why put the waiter's income in my hands? Screw that. Then I have to figure out what to give for other people to think it's right? I've taken 15% as the average expected and gone with that, because I don't think it deserves anymore thought. I mean, I don't tip the cashier at the department store for giving me better service, or the girl at Starbucks for being extra friendly, so what's the difference? I want to expect tips at my department store for doing more than I'm asked. Too bad that won't go over well.

    I've recently started a part time side job as a waiter, and I'll have my first solo shift next week, so I'll see how it is. I walk into a restaurant usually looking for a specific dish, and that's all I'm interested in. I'm not interested in the waitress giving me a fake smile. I'm not interested in faster service. I want normal speed, and the food I came in for. Suddenly the dinner I go in for for $10 has to become $15? I'd rather walk out and go find fast food.

    I leave 20% normally. It fluctuates depending on if I liked the service/server or not. They really have to fail or be rude to get below that.

    My INFP tips the gas station attendants (New Jersey for the.. win/fail?), but I've never bothered to. It's likely because she is from Cali originally.

    Same - however if it is a REALLY fancy one you better tip..

    When I was in London I got annoyed that some places they take 10-15% extra on the bill..

    I mean, don't they work to earn money? and as said, why pay when service is bad?

    I hate paying tips - but i do it, if service is good. I want tips when i work too.. why don't people give tips to people working at a grocery store? .... >_<

    LoL, I can answer this. I have no concept of how much of a percentage I am giving them... But when I paid and left the tip and my fiance says "Holy shit, do you know how much of a tip you just gave them?" :steam: I take it as being way more than his 15% no more, no less attitude would have.

    I've had a lot of friends who were servers... And I've seen there "paychecks" and I know without good tips they are screwed financially.

    I tip 30% when they deserve it.

    As for the rest, I give a 15%.

    The only times I don´t tip is when it comes included in the price. Or when the service is awful.
