I'm confused, I looked up the definition of `tip` and it is indeed a gratuity, but that definition says that it`s how you show gratitude, how can you know how grateful you`re going to be before you`ve even been served?

I disagree with the message. A tip is based on service and is not necessarily something that should be given automatically. However, there are very few instances where tipping is not appropriate, but one would not know this prior to receiving service.

My rule of thumb is 15% for barely passable service, 205 for average service, and 25% or (far) greater for good or exceptional service.

I have tipped more than 100% of the bill more often than I have chosen not to leave a tip. And regardless of the service, I always treat the waitstaff as human beings.

I'm glad I live in country where tipping is not a custom. If restaurants want to have good waiters they pay them accordingly. If waiters want to earn better money, then they work accordingly, just like every industry.

ohhh and one last thing.. if your friend isn't declaring his tips, I would refrain from announcing it to the world because that is tax evasion my friend :)

... Forgot to mention that your tips are calculated by the government based on your sales.. sell for 1k and it is assumed you received 150$ in tips and will be taxed accordingly..
