First let me say that I am a good tipper. I on average tip between 18-25% when I go out. Having said that, I HATE the concept behind tipping, I just do it so I don't get a bad reputation at the places I frequent. To me, giving a tip (or gratuity) is rewarding someone for doing what they are supposed to be doing anyway. So, if that is their job, why do they deserve more? Sure, you carried my food out to me, but isn't that your job? Heck, you didn't even cook my food. So why the extra pay? Why don't the employers increase the rate so people don't need to cover what the employer is saving? I work with computers, and I get no tips. I get paid, but nobody ever slides me an extra $10 for removing a virus, or cleaning up their system. So why should I pay someone extra for walking food out to me? Or for cutting my hair properly? Idk it just makes no sense to me why some jobs get gratuity and others don't.
