Are you a tipper? How much do you normally tip in restaurants? Or do you simply let the free market decide?
Yes. I don't base it on a percentage. I tend to tip based on performance regardless of where I go. I've found it really helps out at local places because whether I'm getting a little or a lot, my tendency to tip well gets me better service than others some of the time. If I go to a fancy restaurant I don't really see why the waitress deserves anymore there than the waitress at the local diner or vice-versa. As a side note, I tend to get irrationally angry at people who don't tip. I just feel that if you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out/get delivery.
Haven't ever worked in food service either for the record, just a thing about me.
I tip if the service was satisfactory. If it's under ten dollars, I tip two dollars. Over ten and it's three dollar tip. Over 20 and it's a four dollar tip. You see the pattern.
I will also say it was very rare for me to of been tipped when I delivered radiators, and it's still rare for my drivers to be tipped.
That's still godawful.
