I do tip but you know what is getting on my nerves?

That gratuity charge that places are starting to enforce.
If a waiter/waitress sucks I don't think I should pay what THEY think I should pay.

^ I think these places have a sentence in their menu, to the effect of "If you eat our food we automatically charge a 15% service fee." It's important to know because you don't want to end up paying the tip twice.

I always tip, even with bad service at restaurants because Its not the staff fault if the cook takes long with your food... Of course, I tip less if the wait staff are obviously incompetent or more importantly, if they are rude. Usually, ill give 20% for good service, at least 15% for average service, and just a dollar when they dont do shit.

When I lived in chicago, the clubs were pretty expensive to begin with and you have to tip well or the bar tender does not get back to you quickly... I would go through $300 a night with just me and a couple of people at one club, mostly because the tips but we were well taken care of.

Here in texas, they seem to tip a lot less but what I do is open a tab with my credit card, spend about $30 on drinks, which is about equal to the amount of drinks I would spend on in chicago, and leave a $30 tip for the bar tender when I close the tab, and believe me, they remember me and trip over themselves to take care of me everytime I show up. I notice most of the people at the clubs dont tip at all.

I found opening a tab at the bar is cheaper and easier, you just ask for the drinks and they give them to you, you dont have to worry about fumbling around with change and its funny to see people get pissed off when you just walk up and they take care of you right away while theyve been waiting forever for a drink. And whats more, they see that you get your drink and dont even pay, ive been asked if i was a V.I.P. or with the performing acts, or just some big shot, im not of course, im just an average joe who knows how to take care of people who take care of me.

When my friends and I went to Olive Garden (18 of us) we all got different tickets. We had two waitresses who didn't get us all of our drinks (my date and I waited fifteen minutes with two of our other friends to finally get drinks), who didn't even get our orders right (and we made sure we even explained what we wanted carefully and slowly), and who only checked on us twice in two hours...

I understand if it's a big group and its hectic but c'mon, we were teenagers and we actually behaved and tried to help them do their jobs and still they messed up.

Thats when I don't like tipping orlike that gratuity fee already added to our meal ticket.

But my mom was a waitress so I know how hard it is so I always try to tip but it's getting crazy with those gratuity fees.

I've been a server - waitress, barmaid, cocktail waitress - I know how stressful the job can be especially when short handed and a rush comes in. No matter how good a server is trained they can mess up under those circumstances.

I take everything into consideration. However it also depends on my state of mind. Most times though I'll leave a nice tip to a good server. Even a bad one, I'll leave a tip, depending on the circumstances (crowded and short handed).

When I get delivery (pizza or Chinese food) I always tip the drives well cause I know how stressful it can be even though I've never been a driver/delivery person.

"I don't tip because society says I have to. Alright, I mean I'll tip if somebody really deserves a tip, if they really put forth the effort, I'll give 'em something extra, but I mean this tipping automatically is for the birds.
I mean as far as I'm concerned they're just doing their job."
