Do you give a tip if the service is bad?


I can't bring myself to not leave a tip even when I've gotten lousy service. I think perhaps they are having a bad day, things are happening in their life they can't control or perhaps if I leave them a tip they will give the next person better service.

    I follow dmop's habit as well in tipping. I give only what is required.

    Exactly! Wait staff's personal lives stop at clock-in and resume at clock-out. Everything in between belongs to the customer and putting the restaurant in the best light possible by giving GREAT service - no matter what. Otherwise, no tip.

    Yeah, I hate that set-up at Supercutz or any of the other "super cheap" haircut places. I hate it so much that I wind up finding a salon that is reasonable..but guys don't always have that option. Perhaps there's a barbershop in your neighborhood?

    Thats quite interesting...that wait staff actually think its helpful NOT to receive a tip so that they know its time to "up their game" with the next customer.

    Me, too. Especially the first time at a restaurant I know I'll visit several more times. Servers who got a bigger-than-normal tip that first time will remember and give the same great service the following times. And get a bigger tip for doing so!

    I do not often tip at all. I used to when I lived in Canada but now I am in the Philippines and tipping is not the norm here. The same custom in Colombia where I lived a few years back. I felt guilty at first but have learned to live with it.
