The tip, the shaft, I think they stick the whole thing up our asses.
I usually, if not always tip above 20%. Today I came up with a new policy. Why pay more money if I'm spending more money on more expensive food and receiving the same amount of service? What sadistic asshole came up with that idea? Why did we buy into it?
From now on I will pay by the trip. I'm thinking $.75 per trip. If a waitress/waiter comes by my table a total of five times to deliver food and tea (see below) then she/he will get $3.75. Isn't that's what it is all about?
Attn: Wait-staff. I sometimes tip solely on my tea refills. Don't let me get thirsty.
