Sep 8th 2009 11:10AM A "tip" has always been a reward for good service. The percentage should be based upon the individuals perception of the level of service.
If a restaurant patron gets really bad service why should any tip be expected? The other side of that coin is that there really are some cheapskates out there who need to be forced to give a tip. Itip 15% if the service is acceptable, 20% if its good, and 25-30% if I feel I've gotten really good service.
The problem with all of this is that the server may be outstanding, but if the kitchen is slow, even the best efforts can't help.

Seems that running intio someone or something on the ground is a lot less expensive to insure than someone flying into your second story bedroom. The concept "never got off the ground."
