Wah Wah Wednesdays – Tipping at the restaurant

Why bother doing the math for a 15% tip? I remember reading something in a book recently about a guy in the entertainment business that always tips 20%, which for those of you who aren’t math wizards, is just the total divided by 5. It’s easy, and on top of that, 20% may seem like a lot to you, salaried workers, but to those that are serving you, it could mean the difference between making rent that month for your server. Ever since I read that, I’ve always tipped 20%, no matter what. Some waiters are really trying hard, and others are falling on hard times. Give them what they deserve, but never anything under 20%, unless they spit in your food or something (or bring you fish, which I’ll discuss next week).
