I have to go to the US for business again and I hate tipping. It makes eating in restaurants so horrid due to having to do maths. I would rather eat in fast food places.

I still can't believe this idiotic system still exists. I mean I wouldn't mind rounding up the bill (eg if the bill is $28.50, rounding up to $30) because its easier for all.

In some coutries, tipping is isulting as it feels like bribery. A taxi driver in Iceland will refuse to take your tip. Why? because his company actually pays him to do his job, like other jobs.

Imagine if all jobs worked on tips. Tip your doctor if he does a good job on your operation. Short change him and next time you need an operation, who knows what could happen.

Sorry, Im not looking for an answer to anything. Just ranting.

Have you seen recent doctors bills? They already get tipped.

Seriously, tipping only happens because we drastically underpay actual workers in the US. And yeah, it sucks.

It's not really difficult math, anyway: take 10% (move the decimal) and double it. Simple. Then make any arbitrary adjustments you like.

It's not just food though. Generally, for any kind of service (except fast food), you tip.
