Although auto tipping makes the whole thing simpler for everybody, I hate it. I like to tip directly to the crew so I can personally thank them for all they have done. It just makes me feel better and its better to do so in person than not. Its common courtesy and its a nice thing to do. I do not skip anybody and I am never cheap about it. People will think I shortchange people but I never have. Anybody that doesnt like the way I do this is misinformed and can take it up with me personally.
