    I don't tip every time but if the service is great, and they bring a smile to my face I always thank them and leave a tip. This goes for any service I receive. I got my nails done last week and the young girl that did them was so friendly and sweet. It really was a total pleasure getting them done. I was relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed myself so I thanked her and gave her a $10 tip when she was done.
    It must be hard to keep a smile on your face all the time and always be happy and welcoming. And some wait staff really go the extra mile. I think its nice to sometimes leave a tip to show you appreciate the effort. And yes I think it's pretty standard that most people leave a tip IF the service was exceptional.

    The difference with Australia and say the US is in the US it IS expected. They pay them pretty low wages so they need it to survive and you would never go to a restaurant and not tip even if the service was average. But in Australia if the service is good in a restaurant then I think to not leave a small token of your appreciation is pretty stingy. Most people do it in my circle of friends and I think it's pretty standard. Even if it's just $2

    I was talking about my personal experience of getting good pay at a lower-quality restuarant that didn't require any knowledge or prior skill of waitressing to be employed. Feel free to argue against everything I say though.

    I am honestly not trying to be argumentative. Your posts read as quite dismissive of people who work in that field. Iknow see that was not your intention and thank you for taking time to clarify.
