Default Re: PDT 2/2 : Why has tipping increased?

when i grew up the standard for excellent service was 10%. less for less service. some time ago wait staff pushed for 15%. and soon that became the norm and now its like 20% if you fall for the speal.

prices have risen the fastest in the food industry and the percent tip in dollars has outpaced inflation without the need to give a higher percent of the bill. i dont be gruge anyone for wanting more that human nature. in higher end places the wait staff make more than the managers.

i believe that the current generation have less value on money(good) and feel fine about bettering others (good)
