Learn some grammar(possessive vs plural). It will make you appear more intelligent.

I usually tip 20%....I feel guilty if I don't but I'll tell you what - sorry to say - but some servers flat out suck and don't deserve it. You are at work: quit texting or hanging out with your friends. You want 20% of my wife's and I $50 bill? Come and refill my damn beer when it's empty, it's not that hard. But when I can look over at the bar and see all you people just chillaxin' then why should I care that server's only make $2/hr?

(This isn't saying all servers suck...just some...I gave a kid $15 on a 52 bill at Applebee's last week because he kicked butt and was a really nice guy but he was an exception as of late)

A few things here:

As stated previously, it's really not our fault that the best job you can get pays only $2 an hour.

Further, I hate the whole concept of tipping. You do your job, you get paid. If your employer wants to reward you for exemplary service, that should be his call. It should not be up to the whim of your customers. I would favor a law abolishing that $2 rate and do away with tipping altogether.

THAT said, I have worked food service while in college. I think everyone should, frankly - we'd be a whole lot politer. IF you give me good service, you'll get at least 20%. I'll tip even more during the holidays or if I think dealing with my table was a PIA for some reason. Mediocre service will get 15%. I have tipped less if I think the server has done a poor job but will not penalize the server for errors I think were caused in back of the house.

If you think Douglasvillians ALL tip poorly then perhaps it's not us but you.

I agree with the BM and Mickey Rooney (too bad he/she doesn't get registered) and the General brings up a good point.

A couple of questions for the OP:

1. Do you know how to spell "anonymous"?
2. How much do YOU tip when you're out?
3. WTF is FYE?

I'm thinking (perhaps a dangerous idea) that the OP is just trying to stir up some trouble...or, perhaps,(assuming the post is about them) works at a low level place...

Tipping, like shaking hands, is an out-dated custom that should have been done away with a long time ago. Why should a customer be expected to bribe someone just to do what they are supposed to do?

on a somewhat related note:

interesting questions:

"But, this naturally raises the question …do all businesses have to provide permanently livable wages, protected by a union? Should McDonald’s have to raise the wages to $15 per hour? Also, is there some outside force stopping these folks from seeking more lucrative employment elsewhere?"

Stopping by to bring up a point....not all wait-persons are folks who are trying to make a living wage and supporting a family. Some....like Dear Daughter...are merely attending college and a restaurant job seems to fit her schedule. She does very well where she works and consistently is in the group that receives the highest tips.

Just as I happen to know folks who wouldn't know a good restaurant from a poor one, I also know folks who are so tight they would never tip.....and the same could be said for men and women who wait on tables in the area.....some are great and some don't have clue.

Also, most the folks I know who don't tip or are low tippers also consider Applebees or even O'Charleys as "fine dining". They also don't have a clue.

I agree with you eht about some only work in such jobs because of college or even some work part time because of family reasons. Personally I think "fine dining" is a homemade meal LOL. But there are those of us who also still consider "fine dining" eating at O'Charleys or Applebees because we do not see the need to go to places like hmmmm let's say for example Ruth Chris and pay high dollars for a decent steak. I respect your opinion a great deal but please don't be so disrespectable. My husband and I tip at least 20% and higher for good service and we visit both above mention resturants. D'ville is still not a hotbed for the uppercrust type "fine dining". And yes I know some here are going to jump down my throat for saying this to one of our most distinguisted people of DC but it is my opinon and another reason I no longer love DC.....too many people making fun of truly conservative folks.

In my family you are tipped according to the service you provide; if I inconvienced you by sitting at your table and placing and order and thinking my drink will be filled automatically you are lucky to get 10% and should probably find a new profession however on the other side if you attentive and friendly you are awarded 20%+. That is the way it is with most other jobs.

I tip at least 20% for great service. Fortunately for me, I very rarely have poor service. I am very respectful to the people who serve me and almost always it's returned with great service.
