I hate tipping and the culture around it (speaking about America). We are expected to tip people who are just doing their required job. I was a bagger at a grocery store and helped carry groceries out for countless people but never got tipped. To me, doing that and serving someone food are basically the same. I only tip a dollar at the maximum no matter what the final price is. So why should I tip someone? Because it's the "right" thing to do? I have countless people who work in the restaurant industry and say that they do not deserve tips at all. Now I know in some states waiters make below minimum wage, so tipping helps cover the lost wages but up here in Washington they make minimum wage, the same amount as grocery baggers make and everyone else who do a service. So why do you tip?
