      Originally, tipping was given to people in restaurant/hotel that would take in charge your culinary experience. Most restaurant/hotel will not do that.

    Depends on the place, I guess. When I worked as a dishwasher in my high school and college days, the waitresses ran the restaurant. There was allegedly a manager but he was irrelevant. The waitresses wanted tips so they wanted good, hot food delivered promptly - and so they rode herd on the kitchen staff, and also on me if plates, silverware or cups were running low.

      In north America, regardless of being taken in charge or not, people expect you to tip and it is very rude not to.

    At least 20% is easy to calculate. Move the decimal point one position to the left and double the number. Then round up to the nearest dollar.
Most restaurants here will suggest amounts on the bill and clearly say what is 15% and 20%. That, and you can just pay Interact and specify you give 15% (no need to calculate anything).

      What disgust me about tipping are bosses that justify paying their employee less because hey are subject to receive tips.



    Quote:
    Yet a waitressing job can pay pretty well when tips are figured in. It's one of the best paying jobs a high school or college student can get. And it's very difficult work. I, for one, couldn't do it.
True. However, the operative word being 'CAN'. Some jobs do not get a lot of tip, if at all but get lower than minimum wage for that excuse. 

Beside, it doesn't excuse paying below minimum wage that there is possibility of tip or not. The client appreciation part doesn't dispense you the obligation to pay minimum wage in my book. If your employee makes load of tips, it means you have good employees, and tip is already a system that reward performance without the boss having to do a thing about it. The way it is used by some boss, it is a system that reward the employer for the performance of the employee on top of the rest... The business being in good health is already the biggest reward for the employer.

    The waitresses made considerably more than I did as the dishwasher. I made minimum wage plus maybe a dollar or two per hour.

Absolutely. That is why many places will now share tip among all the team. Because the cook, to name only him or her, is deserving just as much as the waitress/waiter for the culinary experience...
