Why Should I Tip

Reader gumdrops334 Explains Why We Should Tip

Studies show that tipping doesn't improve service, which begs the question: why should we tip? Well, reader made a good point when she said, ". . . You really should tip about 15 percent at most restaurants. Your waiter is getting paid little to nothing hourly, so that tip is the only money they're really making for their job. Most waiters make about $2.15 hourly. Makes you think twice about not tipping, doesn't it?"

Another reader made a valid suggestion when she said, "Why can't we just do it like other countries and have the tip included. That would make life so much easier."

My question to you readers is, what if you received terrible service — would you still end up tipping 15 percent?
