    But you are paying her to bring it to you. Whether it's rolled into the cost or via a tip. Either way you're paying her wages. Just like you're paying the cook's wages that are already part of the cost of your meal.

    I waited tables for years and was a bartender they are not that difficult of jobs...yes they can be stressful dealing with the public and it is a lot of walking back and forth but not really worth 20 bucks or more an hour they get if u factor in tips.

    100% correct. I see nothing wrong with leaving more than 20% for great service. If I sit down at a table and order a pop and an appetizer then get a couple of refills on the pop I have taken just as much of that persons time as a guest that has ordered a full meal. So, if the service was good, I would leave $10 on a $20 ticket.

    I think everyone else misunderstood you. That's what you were talking about, right? :confused3 ;)

    I dont think it has anything to do with my ability to afford to tip. By average hourly wage I meant the average that people earn in an hour. Here for example the average wage is about £22k per year and most people work about 35 hours per week which equates to a little over £12 per hour.

    My family and I regularly eat out and our bill is roughly £150, by your reasoning I would tip almost £30 which is more than double the average hourly wage. Again, madness!!!

    I think the main point here is that how waiting staff in USA are paid is massively flawed and is wildly different to many other parts of the world
