In reply to comment: Why force someone to tip? (see in situ)

No one is forcing anyone to tip.

We don't get a paycheck in most situations. Our measly $3.00 or $4.00 an hour wage gets taxed to nothing or next to nothing for 95% of servers (we are taxed on a tip rate anywhere from 10% to 15% of our net sales, regardless if we are tipped). We rely on tips to pay our bills.

Like it or not, tipping is the norm in full service restaurants. And if you don't like it, go to McDonalds. Yum.

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.
