And here I thought Canadians were the rudest and worst tippers.........
Although it does annoy me when the tip is automatically added to the bill, I would never stiff the waiter/waitress unless they were completely useless. And then, like someone else said, I'd be spaeking with the manager.
Not sure how accurate this is - but here a quick rundown by state.
Birds are flying out of water
Underneath the sky
I run up to the rainbow girl
just to pass her by
I'll never have a change of heart
My swan will never sing
I have no heart the swan is gone
And now I wear the wings
I can't speak for that pastor, but I go by the rule, "If I got it, we all got it!" If God has blessed me with money and whatnot, what's the point of keeping it all to myself? At a restaurant, I will leave good tips. When someone outside 7-Eleven says, "Big man, you got any change." I give them a couple of bucks. It doesn't make me better than anybody, or make me feel any better about myself, I just feel it's the right thing to do. Aren't we supposed to help out our fellow humankind?
Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
Hell my wife makes me tip the girl at the Chinese buffet we go to because she brings us 2 beers (and they're nice).
“I just wanted to say to the fans … in D.C. and across the nation, they’ve been great for us, cheering us on. At away games they show up in the masses and at home they really made it feel like a home-field advantage. We said this when I was in college, ‘We got a chance to sit at the dinner table and experience success and it was a good meal. But now we want to go back to get dessert.’ We’ll be ready to get dessert next year.”
Robert Griffin’s last words at the press conference.

When I worked at AOL for about ayear, the vast majority, and I mean the 95% of asians (Indians included) brought their lunch from home and rice was always part of the meal. They all had very similiar lunch bags to.
Ask any african american what they call the bill for their car, most (not all) will say "car note." Its weird.
I worked for a customer service department, and when you called folks that were Korean they almost all answered saying "yaboseyo" or hello in Korean. Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese folks did not say hello in their language, ever.
When I shake the hand of a guy from Centeral America, specifically Salvadoreans, you get a dead fish. Almost everytime.
When I worked construction, the contractors that did kitchen counters, specifically marble, were Brazilians. Almost every time. I'm talking several different jobs. There was one common thing they did. They all brought a microwave to the job site. Almost always. They brought a microwave, plugged it in at lunch and heated up their food. Only Brazilians did this. My buddy who got me the job and who at the time had worked construction for 20+ years, confirmed this. Folks from other countries never did this.
I think it's safe to say, that not tipping the standard 15% is something that African Americans don't due ... for the most part.
The thing that people seem to be missing is that gratuity was added onto the bill automatically due to the size of their party. This is generally announced when the server first comes to the table and is posted in the restaurant and menu.
The pastor crossed out the added gratuity and wrote in the price without it, after having the bill split into multiple receipts to try to get around the automatic gratuity, even though only one person was paying.
This isn't just a cheap skate not wanting to tip. It's an EPIC cheap skate not wanting to tip.
This is the equivalent of the pastor writing, "I give God 10%, why should I pay you $8 for a hamburger?"
(Where I worked, this resulted in a third policy: Any waitress who claimed that she didn;t get minimum wage, got fired, under the reasoning that either she's lying, collecting more tips, and squeezing more from the employer, or her service must have been so bad that she's making the restaurant look bad.)
We're all here because
we're not all there
Federal minimum wage for tipped employees is $2.13/hour.
My boss pays $2.25.
