Media Monday - Tip Ettiquette

This weeks post comes from the individual that left a San Francisco server the following tip:

I believe the moral of the story goes back to the old saying, if you don't have anything nice to say...

I am not saying it is not okay to complain about poor service. I am also not saying that tips should not be raised or lowered depending on the quality of service. I do think however, that one shou.d remain civil when doing so. Leavig five cent tips and sarcastic remarks on bills is not going to improve the service for the next person.

FYI - if you are willing to complain about bad service are you willing to compliment excellent service as well? I have a habit of writing a thank you note on the bill for excellent service along with a nice tip. Then again, I would be happy if the restaurant industry did away with tipping altogether by paying good wages. I would be happy to pay an extra 15% if that meant what I saw on the bill is actually what I had to pay.
