Hmm I've been a Automotive technician for 33 years and have had several tips throughout my career. Been the owner of a shop now for ten years and we regularly get nice tips for great service. I always tip for good service no matter what that service might be. I do agree service in the restaurant business has went down.I do not think a tip is required for automotive work. This is a set in stone job and price.
Quite honestly, service has gone down hill in the food industry, it kills me to even tip at a restaurant at this point. A shame how bad employees can really hurt good businesses.
If wait staff starts getting $15/hr, I’m going to reassess my tipping policy.I dont tip for services that people are getting paid in full for already. Restaurant waiting is different because tips for the most part is the bulk of their pay. I tip them well. Hey if I feel someone has really gone beyond the call of duty maybe, but not generally. Profit and pay are built into the price already. Where would it end? Cashier at Home Depot because they were super nice?
In Toronto a few years back and knew there was a high dollar minimum wage and the waitresses also made a lot more, so when the bill came for $20 lunch, I left a toonie ($2 coin) and one of the guys at the table called me a cheap bastard lol. In the US they get like $2 per hour but in Toronto was over $11 per hour so no way I'm tipping the same.As someone that worked their way through high-school and college working in restaurants I can appreciate the concept but I leave it for those not making a real wage. Now more than ever with this 15 dollar minimum BS I live by that even more.

You mean you don't like how now everywhere you go it ask if you want to leave a tip.....even just at a fast food place?Tipping has gone full stupid
Yup! Usually they have the 20% or 25% or 30% tip all figured out for ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Ever been to a restaurant that when you get the bill it has 3 different % of tip that you can leave?
has the math all figured out for you
