    I wouldn't tip. I know from my days working in fast food and hospitality roles, most employers didn't allow the employees to keep their tips. They all went into the til and went to the employer/company at the end of the day.

    Nopes.

    When I was waitressing I was getting $21/hr as a base rate and then $25/hr and $29/hr on Saturdays and Sundays which isn't too shabby for a job that requires no experience, qualification or skills.

    They get paid enough.

    I tipped a bartender when I was drunk and he was being nice.

    Beyond that, I don't tip. It's not standard practice IMO.

    I don't tip when drunk anymore after saying "keep the change" when I paid for one champagne with a $50 hahaha

    I only tip for exceptional service. I usually also ask to speak to the manager and praise the staff to them or follow up with an email to the business. Customer service staff put up with so much crap, it is nice to show them some appreciation if they are amazing.

    Wow I tend to agree with you on the pay front but that they dont require skill? Thats a bit harsh and untrue.

    I meant its a job that doesn't require prior skills. Anything you need to know, they'll teach you on the job.

    I always do, even if it's rounding to the nearest $10. If I order Thai and it's $48.05, I just give $50 and tell them to keep the change.

    Today I went for lunch with some friends. The bill was $212.80. We divided it by 8 and then rounded it up. We paid $27 each.

    I tip, can't imagine not tipping! Maybe it's because I'm from England who knows! But I've always done it & always will...if the service/food is good.
    I tip when eating about, about 10%
    And I'll give the driver a buck or too if I get a taxi
