At least I never tipped anyone. I let my friends do that for me. Seriously, fuck you, I'm not paying your wages.
the thing is, you are supposed to pay their wages. at any restaurant, you are paying, and we just put less in the price of the food and more in the tip as an incentive for good service. but waitresses make a lower minimum wage/general wage than others because of tips. it's quality control built into the system.

for example on my birthday when the waitress never said happy birthday (she carded me and didn't say it!), took 15 minutes to bring things like rolls, water, and the fucking check, and was generally awful, we tipped about 9% rather than 15-20.

You're on a roll!

And I'm semi-distracted by uploading photos. I should be semi-distracted by essays. Woops. But I will be fairly busy with work tonight, so you've a chance to beat me!

Problem is, I have to skedaddle up to the shop in a minute, and I'm also half working on something in Photoshop.

I'm gonna have to whore like a mad fucker for a while.

That's not the way I see it at all. I'm paying for goods or services. The wages are of absolutely no consequence to me; that is an issue between employer and employee (and the government to regulate wages for fairness), and as I'm not the employer, employee, or a government representative, it's none of my concern. The display price is what I pay. I find the concept of tipping frankly to be offensive; the employer is too slack to properly pay their employee, so they expect me to do it for them? Fuck off.

The only reason I let my friends tip for me is because they made me aware that over your way, restaurant staff get paid appallingly. I just handed them my wallet and let them sort it out.

As for an incentive for good service, I did not find the service I received at any establishment in the US to be any better or worse than service I receive in Australia and New Zealand. And, well, if you need an extra incentive to simply do your job properly, then perhaps the job's not for you and you should just quit.
