In my experience, non tippers are rarely people you'd want to be associated with. They're often very entitled, ignorant or narcissistic people who have never worked in the service industry and quite possibly haven't worked a day in their lives. In essence, being a non tipper is a sign of poor character.



I wouldn't know, I don't hang out with any. I'm a tipper myself, but it's irrelevant to the argument.

If you want to argue about character, I might even agree with you once I hear your testimony.

Immoral? So you are God judging what is moral and immoral. Is it moral for the Casino to encourage the drunk gambler to keep chasing his losses and then go and not pay a living wage to those who partake in empoverishing the working class? Making them definitively financially worse off? Puleease save it! I tip all Restaurant servers and drink servers 15-20% or more. Same with hairdressers and other HONEST working class people. I just don't support purveyors of misery ( Casino staff). Neither do I donate to the Church of Scientology. What else besides EMOTIVE language can you offer that could be substantive in forwarding my predicament? I'm still waiting. In Buddhism there is the concept of Karma which means "action" and the Casino's actions of making a "living" in such a manner is bad Karma or "immoral" if you like using your word so much. Me not supporting their way of life doesn't seem all that " bad" in the greater scheme of things...

Actually, my biggest issue with tipping is "tip creep". Tip jars pop up in more places than use to. The other type of creep is percentage creep. I was once taught 15%, now it's acceptable at 30%. I only wish real wages would rise by percentages. There's no particular reason why today's tip receiver deserves on average higher percentage is there?. Are they really working harder than service people of old?

Actually, I think it was as low as 10% at one time. 15 was for better service.

I don't care what anyone else thinks about it either. Tipping is for suckers.

The contrarian is beautiful. Thank you Ibeatyouraces for the inspiration. Social experiment time at bad service places and to most Casino staff as it's inevitable that I always wished that i had given my tip money to that homeless guy on the way home from the Casino. I get so angry about wasting money on social parasites. It makes the difference of a human being eatting that day and not eatting that day. If Sin exists, I have sinned and no amount of repentance will right the past.

If you are playing $25 BJ 5 times a week, and sweating $250 a year in tips, I'm guessing your degenerate gambler persona is no longer an act.



Is that supposed to be funny? I have a playing partner and we have an agreement to meet for a bankroll to close and get paid out. When I have to force myself to play because I cannot stand the Casino parasitic enviornment and people who make comments like you, you bet it's an act of cheerful excitement 20% of the time and negativity the rest of the time in order to stiff those purveyors of misery. You would have to pay me to be in your presence. You need to re-read the OP. Your statement contradicts the OP which covers off your lewd comment. I know it takes time for you to figure it out.

I always get mixed answers on this, but is tipping change rude?

I always tip my change in addition to $1-$5 on a commission game like PGP just because I don't want to carry the coins around.

I'll also tip the room maid a few bucks a night and usually throw in my spare pocket change too.

Some people have told me this is rude, while others say it's fine.
