Do You Leave a Tip Even When You Get Crummy Service? [Audio]

Looks like the days of tipping 15% are pretty much over.  A recent survey suggests that Americans are tipping somewhere close to 20%.

That seems a little high to me but when you consider that most of our servers make somewhere around the neighborhood of $3.15 per hour, maybe it’s not so bad.

I usually pay a little more, especially when I get great service.  Which brings me to my question… What do you do if you get BAD service?  It seems to me that tipping has become something that is more expected rather than earned.

Here’s what you had to say on the show this morning

I was really surprised how many former servers said that they would absolutely NOT tip if they had bad service.

What do you think?  Does a waiter or waitress need to earn every penny of their tip or do you think that a certain minimum should be given and you give more when they go above and beyond?
