    I don't live in the USA, so I know little about tipping there. From what I have understood from your posts, people have to rely more on tipping as a salary than the salary itself paid by the employer, because the get paid minimum or sometimes even less.

    Here where I live, people give tips, but not when we are at a lunchroom or something like that, at least, not the majority of the peeps. Tipping is more when you're going out for dinner.... and yes, the amount depends on how good the service is, but the big difference is that the waiters and so on don't have te rely much on tipping than in the USA, they get paid very well here and the tips they get are just a little extra.

    I do think tipping is a good thing, as a customer it's a way for you to show that you had a good time, that you think the service was good and that you are just one satisfied customer.

    It's a gratuity. That means it's supposed to be A) optional and B) something that is a reflection of your gratitude for their service.

    The biggest problem isn't tipping but the lower minumum wage for servers. The employers pay them crap and then expect the customer to cover the rest. If you don't your accused of being cheap. In spite of that, I personally tip as a reflection of the service. It doesn't always make me friends.

    Thing is, I undrestand that in countries where servers get a decent wage they don't have this problem. So yes, it's a problem that has gotten out of hand.
    Aye. If the service is bad, the tip is bad. But if it's good? They get 6 to 5 dollars. I believe a 10 dollar tip is too much.

    Tipping is something that I do out of gratitude, like Arrianna mentioned. If the service is good, they get a better tip, if the service sucks, then they don't get a big tip and sometimes not one at all.

    Agreeing with everyone

    yes, preformance does affect the tip.

    In my case, all my friends tip way too much. they tip, [my gosh] like 45% ish or something. thats a bit insane.(especially if they're in a BUFFET!) I say if the whoever is waiting on you actually brings you food or something, you tip.

    I have acctually gotten flak from my friends for not tipping like, 20% on people who didn't do a slick of work for me.. I consider them idiotic, and i hope they acctually get something out of doing that. But tipping should be based on how much they work for you.

    yeah but speaking of friends, some of mine believed it is an adult thing even though we are eating out. Here's what they say, "We're young, so we shouldn't have to give a cent."

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Actually they're lucky to get minumum wage let alone more then that. There is actually a lower minumum wage for servers and their employers only have to pay them more if their tips don't bring it up to the regular minumum wage.

    It's rediculous.
