As they say in Reservoir Dogs . . .

I'm not sure how I feel about this, but it's interesting so I throw it out looking for comments.

You're listening to my station? *squee* What do you think?

I think tipping as a reward for good service as opposed to tipping as obligation because you know someone is getting paid two bucks an hour is the norm. I know many people who leave a good tip on even the worst service because to do otherwise means the server isn't really getting paid.

And when you really think about the cost of a meal once you include a reasonable tip, it's outragous. And since the restaurant isn't paying wages, they are more or less raking in your money.

At the moment, I'm getting a good dose of Neil Diamond.

This is a gray area for me. It seems like a disincentive for good service as everyone gets a tip anyway, and the restaurants are likely to take a big part of that. I always try to tip well unless the service is atrocious, because it's a crappy job.

Is Neil Diamond a bad thing?

I don't care one or the other about tippiong vs service charges. It's all the same to me.

Neil Diamond is a good thing. Now we've moved on to Kathy Mattea. *snuggle*

Heh.

Do you ever read old Doonesbury cartoons? I have a funny image of us recreating Boopsie and B.D.'s wedding complete with Hunga! :)
