Just an added note, melissassm

Here in Nova Scotia wait staff has to tip out bar and kitchen staff based on waiter's food/drink tab. So if you don't tip she/he has to tip for you, but gets a discount on the tab :). Generally they also don't have any health benefits and if you do a runner, waiter picks up your tab!

"Ahahaha! HA! Oh my! And no, I'm not gonna ask if you ever took them up on their offers!"

melissassm, NO! Never did! lol But funny enough, one time this "drunk as a skunk" woman was all over me as I was trying to get out of the room, and then her husband came through the door...I thought I was DEAD. Instead, he apologized profusely for his wife's actions and gave me a $20 to keep my mouth shut. I got the feeling it wasn't the first time she'd done this. It takes all kinds. lol

It seems everybody has their own way of looking at tipping. Here is an example of a little bit different way of looking at it:

Quote of the day (from one of the comments on some of the You-Tube videos):

"bad tippers are embarrassing and good tippers are obnoxious because they cant stop talking about how well they tip"
