There's no shame in that, as a student you're entitled to take anything on the table with you aswell!

tips was an abbreviation originally menaing "to insure proper service"
it was implemented at busys cafe's in europe. There was a tip box, you put money in it- a waitress notices and tries to serve you.

I usually intend to leave a tip rangeing from 10-20 % (usually around 15) or even more depending on how good the service was. If I'm met with absolutely deplorable service I'll leave whatever I have in my pocket (which is usually a nickle, a quarter, 2 pennies, a small ball of lint and a button) my reasoning being; if you expect money from me, a teenager, then you must understand that money is earned for I as a student do not get money all that often.

At bars I don't tip most of the time becouse they take for ever, charge to much for food,some times even steal money by "forgeting" your change or placeing a wet tray on money left on the table. My faverite breakfast place has faster service even when you have to wate for a table,yet by % you should tip less. As a janiter at a golf club I recieved no share of the tips even when the kitchen staff left work in there posted job discriptions.

If the service is excellent, I leave 10% of the bill.

If the service is so-so, I leave 2-3 bucks.

If the service is really terrible, I leave a penny just to scorn at them hahaha.

I always try to tip around a little less than 15% if they're ok...

Usually I just double the tax which is 7% and pay that...

That's a nice little trick.

It would be nice if I got tipped every so often, doesn't happen. Too many stingy old people about...

If it's me, if I tip, it'll vary. Woot.

Unfortunately, I'm generally a "poor" student who just goes to restaurants to get a meal. With this said, I try my best to leave a 15% tip to be considerate to the waiters because in general, they're students as well just trying to make a living. In places like Dennys and other "family restaurants", my part of the bill is usually no larger than $20, so it's not difficult to leave about 3-6 dollars in tip. However, like everything, there are always exceptions.

Every once in a blue moon, there will be a meal where the waiter/waitress is extremely friendly and basically makes you feel welcome and gives you the feeling that you are there to be served. In other words, they are doing their job and taking pride in their work. Sure, they don't have to be overly nice, just enough to not get fired - this is what makes them stand out. For times like these, I generally try to leave a 6-10 dollar tip out of generosity and thanks.

Like there are good waiters, there are bad ones who you just have to be served by. They have absolutely no pride in their work and you can automatically tell that they are there because they just want their measly minimum wage. Sure, I try my best to search deep in my soul to leave them a consistent 15% tip, but usually I drop it to a meager 1-2 dollar because they simply don't deserve to be tipped so high. Their service is subpar and they aren't doing what is expected of their job. The basic principle of any service based industry is to treat your guests right and make them feel welcome - if they can't even do that, they don't deserve to be tipped. This is my opinion.
