Canada and Europe are a little different with coins, as we have $1 and $2 denominations in small metal disk form.


Anyway... I usually tip well when I go to bars, last time I went and had a couple pints I spent about $10 on the beer and $5 on tips.

I do a lot of bartending at work, since I work in a hotel restaurant/conference center, and we have 2 bars on site... and I've got to tell you. Businessmen/women, whether they're MBA students, highly paid executives, whatever... they tip like shit. Honestly, I made $2 in tips last time I worked and probably served about $200 of liquor. I'm competent in what I do, as our other bartenders have noticed similar trends.

Regardless, it doesn't matter who I'm serving, I'll memorize their drinks and will already start pouring if I see they're on their way back to the bar. If I'm making a round to collect glasses I'll even ask people if they want me to bring them a fresh drink (of their established preference) ... but apparently that's not worth much.

I guess its a bit different, too, when people can just charge drinks to their rooms and not have to worry about bringing cash to the bar, though. But still... It's not like they don't have the money to even pass me a single dollar per person when they're having 5-6 beers or 3-4 glasses of wine each... like come on.

not everyone can afford to give out 1000% tips.

Don't take it as a 1000% tip...see it as a way to pay for the service provided, remember that the drink was only $1, in this specific situation? If you were tipping on that $1, would you tip 15 cents?
