I'm not banging down the door to your business demanding that you take a 12% pay cut
Who's asking for that? I'm just expressing how generous practices are now reduced to pay the bill (including service) practices and being on my merry way. I'm just cutting out frivelous spending? In turn yes, servers will be getting less from me but they won't be getting stiffed either. I mean I'm making the point to go to more affordable place, going out less which is an adjustment for ME but I've decided to stop being an emotional tipper. That's what I'm saying, I'm trying to take out the emotional part of tipping which confuses matters. It's actually turned me into an over (an in turn an inappropriate) tipper. I'm just trying to correct that mentality. It is a business transaction after all now isn't it?
The accepted standard isn't "15% unless you don't have the money".
I don't understand. What are you saying? Does that suggest tipping less than 15% because funds are low? If that's what you meant then you're arguing some other point. I've never factored anything less than 15% in my posts on this thread. My theory is about tipping appropriately while staying within the standard and acceptable ranges of 15-20%. I just wasn't sure what you were saying with that comment. It seems pretty straightforward but since no one suggested anything less than 15% it threw me off.
