Do you ever feel like you have to tip?
Not if the service sucks, but in most cases you should tip
I never feel I have to, but I almost always do.
Think of tips as a voluntary, skill based form of paying labor costs on services. The business doesn't figure in that cost to their products, keeping the initial cost down for the consumer. The consumer decides if the service was bad (low tip) or
good (higher tip). This ensures those who are skilled in the service industries make more money and those who aren't find jobs they're better suited to. It makes it easier on employers and means service is better overall.
I think it's ridiculous how everybody expects to be tipped. I see tip jars at the self-serve frozen yogurt store—what did you do for me?
If you SERVE me in some way, I tip. Tip well, if you serve me well.
I pretty much always feel I have to tip, if we're talking about any service industry where people are paid a sub-minimum wage. I hate the system, but I won't screw the working people. It's not their fault.
Yes, but I also don't really mind. It's part of what I account for when planning an activity in which someone else works to provide service for me.
