They're already getting paid for doing the work, so why do you feel its necessary to tip people? I think it's greed on their part, and I don't think it's right

Greed turned into entitlement turned into resturaunts taking advantage and paying very low wages because they get tips now it's just part of the system

I tip for good services like hair stylists, waitresses, and delivery. They deserve the extra if they do a good job or are on time IMO.

He'll even I could look at Christmas and end of year gifts from students as kind of a tip for me. : P

because I get paid 2 dollars an hour because it is expected that patrons will tip. Knowing this and you do and not tipping makes you the greedy person and not I.

Server minimum wage in Missouri is $3.53 an hour. Yes it's a wage, but definitely not one to live off.

You tip because their salary is typically less than minimum wage.  You can also tip if someone did a great job.  It's a nice thing to do.  I guess some people aren't so nice.

I tip if I recieve good service. It lets the person who 'served' you know they did a good job! When I get CRAPPY service, I do not tip.
