I used to leave 15 because that is what my Mom taught me. A friend told me a few years back that 20 was the norm now. Most people seem to go by 20 but I still know a few who do 15. Which is it IYO?

I will give a tip based on service alone. If I didn't get good service I don't tip. Yes, I've heard that servers don't make as much because employers are expecting tips to make up the rest. If this is the kind of job you have, you should be aware that you are supposed to give service. I don't expect too much, but I don't want my drink to set empty or my food to be cold when it is brought out. To me 20% is all well and good if you have money to spare, but 10% for me is average service and 15% for good. It takes a lot for me to go for the 20%.
