    How can I get my friends to learn how to tip a server?

    We eat out often with some friends, but they never tip & are even semi rude to the server,what is a nice way to get them to realize they need to tip?

    I'm sure your friends (know) how to tip and why people do tip. They just don't want to tip. Tipping is optional and not a requirement.
    Personally I usually leave a 20% tip. Like you I had friends who did not believe in tipping. I ended up not going out to dinner with them unless I was prepared to pay for the whole meal including tip. "People change when they want to change." Most men tend to improve their tipping when they fall in love with a woman that frowns on stiffing the waitress/waiter.

    Well, I have written on this, but as relates to Christians, and I will not go into all that here, but everyone should tip appropriately.  I am sure they know, but are choosing not to in order to keep that 20 percent for themselves, or have never worked as a server.  Then, I am sure they would have a different perspective.  We can't control what other people do or do not do, that is for sure.  I guess, just pointing out to your friends that the server is doing his job and it is the right thing to do, as there are plenty of other things going on behind the scenes I am sure that no one even sees, besides them bringing your food to the table.

    Sounds like your friends need to work one day in the service industry for $5/hr and they'll get it!
    I relate, I've had to "take one last trip to the bathroom" as I sneak another couple bucks on the table, because my dining partner is a cheapo.
