Why not? If more commonplace in some areas, customer service would likely improve as well. Individuals - again - are incentivized to perform through gratuities.


Servers and bartenders don't work for the good of humanity, but rather to make money. Such a basic concept that socialists and communists cannot seem to want to internalize.

Time to take the bull by the horns and "opt out" by cooking at home. I pray for the day when everyone else gets smart and boycotts restaurants en masse.
Great point!

I was in Spain last week, but I guess that's not free as you are huh?
You can still get thrown in jail for a Facebook post though, right? So, yeah, your snarky comment turned out to be kinda dumb.

Really poor attempt to deflect attention from your thought police. I doubt you have time to be on FB because it is quite time consuming to file the edges off your butter knives.

Leftist Dave looks at scoreboard ... sees a zero .... thinks he's winning. NEXT!

You guys are just too easy, it's no challenge to me at all. But, we're here to talk about tipping. If we just take shots at each other, we'll get in trouble.

I'm a good boy. I don't want to get banned.......

Our police are very nice. Hardly ever shoot any of us at all.......

NEXT.

Perhaps your police should put in a request to your overlords in Brussels.

Don't make comments on freedom in America where I can see them. I will obliterate you. And I have nothing against the English people. I have worked with SAS guys in the past, salt of the earth people. English leftists are not fit to gaze at their boots.
