It is not at all illogical. With your method, you are rewarding people for not working at all.

If you put sugar in it, yes, the tea is also terrible for you. I wouldn't pull up to a fast food place for ice, if I really needed it, I'd get it from the dispenser at the Quickie Mart when I got gas.

It's a suggestion.

I am a regular at my favorite locally owned place, I can get a table even when they are sold out, they have also gotten me into their sister restaurant at the last minute when they were also sold out.

If you lived in a major resort area like I do, you would agree with me. The local day spas pay low wages to LMT's expecting them to make up the difference with tips.

Tipping, (which did NOT actually originate as an acronym for insuring prompt service) is OPTIONAL for customers. But then again, so is washing your hands after going #2. So it's really a question of how we want to be.

Good comparison, although you should wash hands anytime you go to the bathroom, regardless of which side it comes out.

Yeah, I chose the more extreme case to make the point, but thanks for the hygienic reminder.

which essentially means tipping is optional.
Plus I think it is more important to learn not to **** on your hand than to washing hands after.
