Im in Prague now. I find it interesting that the restaurants here consider 10% a generous tip and dont even seem to fully expect a tip.

I’ve never fully understood why restaurants get to have their customers pay their employees.

Also, in Portland they are raising the minimum wage for servers to $15 an hour or whatever.. Restaurant owners are raising their prices to cover the wages, and I’m pretty sure I’ll still be required to tip 20% on top of my meal that just went up 20%. I just want to remove tipping from the equation #oldmanshakesfist

There are restaurants popping up that have eliminated tipping. I know of at least 1 in Louisville and a couple in Northern Kentucky

That is what the owners said theyd do if the minimim wage increased, but I was skeptical. Hopefully they do.

Am I shitty tipper? You tell me, I just bought a new queen size bed with adjustable frame. The two guys that set up the frame and brought in the mattress and took away the old mattress and bed frame each received a $10 tip from me. Is that a shitty tip for a job that took maybe 10 minutes total?
