I am sorry, you are mistaken.
It may make you FEEL better to stiff a member of a wait staff, but when you do, they usually chalk it up to "they forgot" or They don't tip" or "They're foreigners" They DON'T REALIZE it is THEY who have the problem.\
If you go out of your way to give a person .50 on a $10 bill, though, that says something.
They think "Wow, could it be ME?"
So, you would rather they think of you as cheap instead of being displeased with the service. If you tip cheaply, they think they did ok and you are just cheap. I really don't care what they think if they get the message that the service I received was terrible. If you reward bad service, you will continue to have bad service. BTW most times I go into S&S early in the morning and the service has been bad at that time. We can agree to disagree!

I see what you mean. But remember, people that NEED the wake up call usually are more than willing to believe it's really not their responsibility and it's someone else's fault.

But, you are correct that perhaps a small tip will make them think you are just cheap. Oh, well.
